Happy Holiday Weekend! Hope you're making some fun plans for this long Independence Day weekend - well, for most of us - thanks to all of our bartenders and servers that will be working so the rest of us can eat out and have some drinks.
Over at Des Moines is NOT Boring, He Ate/She Ate were at Django this week. Read their thoughts on why this is one of their favorite spots in town.
The Datebook Diner had some wonderful things to say about one of OUR favorite spots, The Flying Mango, with some mouth-watering photos that really make you want to get there soon. Remember, The Flying Mango will be closed for their annual 'time off' from July 3 - 11.
Just in case you might fire up the grill this weekend for some BBQ, Meathead from AmazingRibs.com shows you how to make your own signature KC style BBQ sauce. Great, now I'm thinking about ribs at 8:30 in the morning.
And you'll need some dessert to go along with those ribs, right? How about Firecracker Whoopie Pies? Made with POP ROCKS! Annie over at annies-eats.net has outdone herself this time. Too cool.
We're really looking forward to the Craft Beer Tent that will be at this years' Iowa State Fair. Hand crafted beer from 9 Iowa breweries will be available - see the list here. You can now purchase 6 packs of drink tickets for $30.00 at their website - that's $12.00 off what you'll pay at the fair. They also have tees and koozies available.
Have a fun 4th of July - stay safe.
