It’s a cool bar. They recently started serving food but haven’t had a chance to try it yet
The Cedar Rapids Fuzzy's is way worse after they lost some good people off their staff. What was a weekly addiction was removed from my list. I figured that one would close way before the one in Ames.
I like Smokin' Oak better than Blaze. I didn't at first, but after a couple trips to each Smokin' Oak wins. I was there yesterday and it was as packed as I've ever seen it. It surprised me since students are gone. Usually it's not busy and I worry it won't be able to stay open.
Im curious if that is really the expectation. Because while i grew up in the suburbs i remember even when campustown was less dense 10-15 years ago when i was there i still expected to walk a block or two anytime i went down to welch. Though back then even that was a challenge some nights.
if you didnt walk home drunk from welch to west ames did you really even go to iowa state
Did the Welch back to Frederickson Apts a few times. About 30 minutes to Welch and much longer back when directions get a little hazy. Also had to stop a buddy from thinking campus buildings were port-a-potties
Definitely did the welch to coconino walk a couple times.
How does anything do well on Duff? It's so congested over there. The only way Duff is good is by comparison to the parking situation in Campustown.
Campustown needs a complete do-over.
You said it yourself. Parking.
Ames is 66k people. 28k students on campus.
so there’s 38k Ames residents that when deciding where to spend $ on food or entertainment have to weigh whether they want to worry about off street, meter parking in Campustown or go to Duff and have a free parking lot 20 yards from the front door.
Have you ever tried parking there? Most is permit only. I gave up the few times I wanted to park there and just hit a side street. And that was in the summer, good luck when school is actually in session.
Is the Intermodal Parking facility not free parking after 6pm or something like that? If its permit required all the time, that is a big fail.
Yep. Especially when you factor in that a huge portion of that is families, and nobody wants to drag young children blocks and blocks in 8 degree weather for tacos that are generally cold, and a bathroom that was always gross. These are legit issues when you have a five-year-old who wants to touch and climb on everything.
Yeah, I've made the walk from Welch all the way to North Dakota. Getting Mr. Burrito on the way makes the walk more enjoyable.
I walked from Welch to the west end of Mortenson a few times. Always made it.
Except for the one time I headed that direction and ended up in Nevada...
Nevada? That’s a long walk.
I was lucky enough to get a ride!
Lol how did you end up in Nevada? It's like 8 miles east of Ames
I have NO idea how smoking oak is still open. I don’t think they can give away pizza there. Must be a money laundering operation.
Yepm try Which Which. I imagine I will just never go there with kids.
I'm with you. Not that my family does either a whole lot, but unless it's after 6 on Friday or Saturday we can usually grab a meter spot 3-4 blocks from about anything in campustown. Doesn't bother me as much as the congestion on Duff.
