    Happy Joes is Dead??

    Ive heard from a really good source the the City of Ames has decided to say that Happy Joes is Condemned after the flood, this is a sad day, Hank was a great ISU supported and a HUGE fan, this is a huge loss to the town of Ames and to ISU!!!

    Lets hope he can reopen somewhere else or savage the building

    I'm not sure he's willing to go through another rebuild, it truly is an era coming to an end if he does indeed decide to "retire". It's been a tough week for him with his Mom's passing and the flood. Keep them in your thoughts as they are going through a lot.

    We always make a point of eating at Happy Joe's when we visit Ames. My kids *love* Happy Joe's and I love the Taco and Canadian Bacon Pizzas. I wish him the best and hope they can reopen in a new location.

    Oh, and RIP Fox...

    Re: Happy Joes is Dead??

    Happy Joe's should move out to west Ames by Perfect Games et al. There are a lot of college students and families that live out that way, and mostly to get out of that massive flood plain.

    Re: Happy Joes is Dead??

    Why the hell did they build WalMart there? If I remember correctly, it flooded during the construction too. I worked at O'Malleys and that place got flooded on 3 separate occasions. Building in that flood plain is just asking for trouble.

    I agree that these places should all move to West Ames, lots of good things going on out there.

    I'm wondering if 20th Century Bowling will reopen. I'm sure they have to replace all the lanes, which isn't cheap.


    Yeah TOAST!!!

    Re: Happy Joes is Dead??

    I wonder how much a piece of land costs in that flood plain? I realize its on the busiest street in Ames, but you're guaranteed to get flooded a lot sooner than later. And if it's cheaper than usual, I guess insurance premiums will take care of the rest.
