    Any ISU friendly sports bars on DSM South Side?

    Some friends of mine want to go watch the game on Saturday night, and are looking for a place that isn't a nuthouse, but is ISU friendly. Any suggestions?

    Jon- you may try the Okoboji Grill on SE 14th; it is pretty new and has a nice bar area.

    I concur with Francies. And the wings are GREAT!

    Cyclone friendly but not crazy? How about Jack Trice Stadium.

    Johnny's Hall of Fame is ISU friendly, but it's downtown. And I don't know how it would be when the game is in Ames...

    I would LOL that, but I am sure it would start some problems.

    You have done and said far more offensive things than a harmless laugh...


    As far as depth goes though, the combination of White, Woodbury, Olaseni, Basabe, and Uthoff is much better than Niang, Ejim, Edozie, Gibson. Not because of the top 2, but because of the next 2 or 3. -DeanVogs

    Don't waste your time. Jon doesn't really care, as long as he gets a paycheck.

    So, now you have "friends" that are Cyclone fans?

    Talk about your "racial harmony" throwaway lines....

    Re: Any ISU friendly sports bars on DSM South Side?

    Johnny's downtown is not an ISU bar. Went there last week since we didn't have tickets to the NE game and it was 80% Hawkeye fans with both games and the Hawkeye game volume (I can understand having both games on, but an ISU bar would have the ISU game volume). The waitresses and bar tenders in their Hawkeye gear. Do they pretend to be a Cyclone bar at times when Iowa isn't playing so they can get your money? Yes is the answer to that.
