Is there ever going to be an Iowa get together like there used to be in years past? If I remember correctly guys would meet at Okoboji grill back in the day. Just curious as I've never really met anyone one from the forum.

I'd be in. I met quite a few good folks back when we used to do that.

Set it up op. I'm sure fatdrunkandstupid would come out as well.

42nd and University seems to be the home corner for a lot of us. I'd say Godfathers, or Jethros would be a good location.

He might, Altoona isn't too far for him to travel to Des Moines.

We had one few years ago at Jethros BBQ in altoona was a fun night meeting everyone. Now I am further away but would still consider traveling for it.

We'll have to figure some dates that would work and then narrow it down from there.

I'd be in for splitting gas if it worked out with a day off.

Eastern IA reporting in... I ain't driving for Godfather's.... Jethro's? Now we're talking.
Link Posted: 3/20/2017 11:43:11 AM EDT
Depending on the date of the event, I'm in. May I humbly suggest Fawn's (Asian food) near Lutheran Hospital in Des Moines. Otherwise, Jethro's is good too.

I thought you were up north?

Jethros works for me as well. Are we talking the original Drake location or somewhere else?

Cedar Rapids.

I would be up for it

I would be up for it. Also I would throw Smokey D's out there. It's right off the interstate and their BBQ is way better than Jethros IMO. Jethros has better wings, but nobody can touch Smokey D's burnt ends....

I'm in, depending on specific date.  Wife may be in class, which leaves me with 2 nutty little boys that like to fight each other.  

Goodsons so I can walk from home

I have the same issue. The wife works a lot of weekends. I have 2 to take care of as well.

I figure after reading up on Compass' thread we could do it sometime after May 1st. Give them time to acclimate to Iowa life and then meet some new people in a strange land.

No joke man, you have some of the most well behaved kids that come in my store. No bullshit.

Of course, me and my brother were pretty good in public when we were young, but fucking terrors at home.

Aaron, owner of Goodsons, has that new pizza place just across the corner. If we do a get together there, he has some crazy fucking hot pizza challenge. I'll make an ass out of myself and attempt it. He told me he couldn't even finish 2 of the 4 slices, and that was not even following the 15 minute time limit he has on the challenge.
