    Some of your wishes have come true?

    Papa's Corner is now under new ownership. The name will likely change, but hopefully their new line-up for Thursday nights does not. I was liking all the bands they brought in, I spent a bit of time there. Glad to see those owners go, cause I could tell they had big problems with mis-management, sad to see the shows go though.

    NHL teams need to be added to the favorite teams section.

    Is that supposed to be "now under new ownership"? Just clarifying, because it changes the meaning of the entire sentence. From the rest of the post I'd guess that's a typo.

    I also wish they had just left People's alone.

    People's should be salivating at the shot to get back into that location. I'm so glad to see those ******** fail. Why couldn't they just have left People's alone? Call me vindictive, but it was absolutely idiotic to kick out A LANDMARK, a bar that had been featured in Playboy multiple times, the longest running bar in Campustown and an absolute Ames icon, because you think you can do a better job. Really? Really?


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    I proposed to my wife at People's during a Hello Dave show so I was pretty mad when I heard they packed up for Des Moines. That place was great and had so many good bands in there.

    They were in Des Moines before getting the boot in Ames. The plan was to have 2 People's, and then the ******** who owned the building in Ames, decided not to renew the lease so they could start their own bar, as they thought they could do it better. They made it about a year. Well done, jerk offs.

    Is there any surface in that bar that didn't get urinated on regularly? I dont think so, and that is the mark of a great bar!

    I may, or may not, have been guilty of "sinking" it up on occasion...

    I opened this thread expecting to see HB committed to us, Cyclonefanatic actually banned any talk of ISU leaving the Big XII, the football team would have names on their Jersey's next year or at the very least, some boobies.
