    Favorite Bar

    What is everyones favorite bar to go to?

    Just curious where most of my cyclone breathren like to congregate. Personally I dont get out that much due to having a wife and kid but when I go out I prefer a chill place. Just recently I went to the Ridgemont off of hickman by the Bucs Arena and had a good time.

    In Ames Welch Ave. Station is my favorite but here in Des Moines probably the Twisted Parrot is my favorite.

    Do the same people that own the Blue Note in D.M. own the one in Marshalltown?

    To answer the question: Lost and Found in Ames, Old Timer Tavern in M'town

    Re: Favorite Bar

    whenever i get out of the house without the wife and kids, it includes a stop at El Bait Shop. i was even hit on by an attractive female there last weekend. she was probably hammered. actually most likely she was.


    Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than selfish and worry about my liver."

    Re: Favorite Bar

    Ames: London Underground if I'm downtown, Welch Ave. Station if I'm in campus town

    Des Moines: Hessen Haus or Fong's Pizza if you can count that as a "bar"

    First, I mistyped. I had something else on my brain when I wrote, it's the Blue Moon, not the Blue Note.

    And it's here
