I will be coming down with a buddy Thursday - Sunday, I've looked up the CCW laws for Iowa and seem to be pretty on track to Nebraska's. Any other specific useful information I should know traveling to Des Moines from Omaha? One thing I couldn't find was if I had a duty to inform, if I am pulled over. Also do no gun signs hold the letter of the law?

No duty to inform if stopped, tho most consider it the polite thing to do.  Signs mean nothing.  If they see you are carrying they can ask you to leave.  If you refuse they could pursue a trespassing charge on you.  I've never heard of it being done.

Gunshow at the Fairgrounds this weekend, generally pretty decent.

Unfortunately I will be busy all weekend otherwise a gun show would be fun to go to.

How about some good pizza/burger/beer joints around the airport area? Anywhere noteworthy?

Francies Bar and Grill is great. It is less than a mile north of airport on Fleur.

Skips is in the same area.  Otherwise the airport area is not prime dining.

Downtown there is Fuzzy's Tacos, a pizza place right next to Fuzzy's that has "fire grilled" pizza or something like that, High Life Lounge serves old beer brands and has great food and is adjacent to El Bait Shop that has over 100 different beers on tap, Royal Mile is like an English pub on the inside and has good food and is located on 4th street off Court Avenue, although I've never been there Hessen Haus is supposed to have good German food and beers as well.  Hope this helps.

Hessen is good.  If you go downtown or east village you open up dozens of possibilities.
