    Johnny's Hall of Fame on Court Ave is the official Cyclone gamewatch location in DSM. Better food than Legends too, IMO.

    Yeah, I would recommend hitting Johnny's over Legends. Went to Johnny's for the KSU football game, and it seemed like 80% of the people there were ISU fans. Also, they have noticeably more ISU decorations than Iowa decorations. I would say Legend's food is a little better, at least their appetizers, but I've never had a full meal at Johnny's. Regardless, it will be a definitely pro-ISU atmosphere Friday. Not sure about tomorrow, though.

    Trophies is still a pro-ISU bar as well, I went there for 3 games this year, love the 120oz beer tower for $15

    Johnny's has recently expanded their menu, and I have yet to try all of it but it looks good. From the original, smaller menu, I highly recommend the rarebit burger. It's a burger that is completely smothered in cheddar cheese sauce, you have to eat it with a fork. When the waitress brings it to your table, she also has a phone with her, and dials 9 and 1. Then she sits there with her finger on the 1 button, ready to push it again if you have a heart attack while eating it.

    Trophies! Trophies! Trophies!
    I am not much into the bar scene anymore but I do like going there for Cyclone game watches. It's on Euclid just west of the intersection with MLK.

    Beer towers are great.

    TVs to watch the game on are horrible.

    Get a booth and you get your own TV so you can watch whatever games you want at any time, ie halftime. Plus they pipe in the sound for the game over the speakers

    Those TVs are ok... just not as good as other places. We went there quite a bit last season. It is a pretty good atmosphere to watch. Solid wings too.

    That is sweet. How does it work though? Does the witness just put it on your table and you are free to drink away?
