    Help finding Entertainment in Des Moines

    Hey just wanted to throw this question out to everyone in Des Moines and the surrounding area.

    What is there to do in Des Moines for general entertainment in the winter??

    I know the simple anwers like bowling, going to bars, or seeing one of our few sports teams either in Ames or here in town. But what else is there? I loved Sprockets when it was open and if it wasn't for the high gas prices I'm sure the Nascar simulator would still be running at Jordan Creek.

    So anyone got ideas??

    Re: Help finding Entertainment in Des Moines

    I had fun at an Iowa Chops game. My wife got tickets to Triple Espresso (from her mom) for Christmas... It was actually really funny.

    I am waiting for a decent weekend day when I can take my 4 year old to the skating plaza... it sounds fun...
