Finally! A nice sunny start to a Friday. Hope it lasts the weekend for all of the Des Moines Arts Festival and Farmers' Market visitors.
dsmMagazine recently hosted Des Moines' first 'Top Chef' challenge. Sean Wilson of the Kirkwood Lounge came out on top - more details here.
Distilled Opinion recently reviewed one of our favorite restaurants, Sam & Gabe's. Check out his view on the great northern Italian cuisine at this 86th and Hickman eatery.
We love us a good dive bar. If you've read our post on The Bar Book, you know we've been to a lot of 'em. Des Moines Food Blog paid a visit to one of the best dives in Des Moines, The Greenwood Lounge, and gives it some worthy praise.
Speaking of bars, and drinking, here's a drink I'd REALLY like to try. The Dupont Circle bar in Washington, DC, has come up with a cocktail that is not for the faint of liver. "The Big Dirty" is 48 ounces of fun for $79.99 a pop. C'mon, it's Friday!
And just a bit of tooting our own horn...we were on Iowa Public Radio's 'Talk of Iowa' on Tuesday to talk about our blog, Iowa food and our favorite Iowa restaurants. Here's the link if you'd like to listen in!
Happy Sunny Friday.
