    Milwaukee Fan Visiting

    Hey, thought I would just check out and see if you had a D-Board. Also just wondering if you all had any ideas about good places to go in and around Ames (food, bars, hangouts) over the weekend you host the World Vision Classic.

    Also if you had any hotel suggestions let me know. Either post here or you can email me too tjdunne@uwm.edu

    Can't wait

    Re: Milwaukee Fan Visiting

    Pizza = Great Plains Sauce and Dough Co.
    BBQ = Hickory Park - get there early and expect a wait if there's something going on in town. (BBall game or what).

    Ditto on the food

    Pizza - Great plaines - get thick whole wheat crust and put honey on it. Their pizza is one of kind. (downtown Ames)

    BBQ - HIckory Park food is decent, atmosphere is fun and family friendly. (near 30)

    Bar hopping - Generally, Campustown if you're 18-22, Ames downtown if you're 23 and over.

    Hotel - Cheap - Super 8 in Nevada, just 10 miles east - I always stay there. If you like nice places, Gateway. Everything else is in between. If you like boutique type hotels, the hotel at the Union is enjoyable, and only a walk from campustown if you are planning on drinking much.

    I was there after the Nebraska game and will be there after the Missouri game. My 25 year old body loves it! Get me a Flaming Dr. Pepper!

    Re: Milwaukee Fan Visiting

    If you're a student looking to hit up the bars or be around the campus scene, try staying at the Memorial Union on campus. It's cheap and walkable to everything.
