    I watched the UNI vs. UNLV NCAA tourney game there couple years back and there were many Panther fans there. DSM Area alum/fans should come out!

    That's funny... so did I.

    Spent many Thursday evenings there when I lived in Des Moines. From what I understood, the owner was retiring. Has the new ownership made (needed) improvements to the building? Has there been any changes to the menu/food quality? Just curious....

      I'm not too sure what it was like previously. I've been maybe a handful of times. A couple buddies of mine live in the apartments near there. Food is fine, what you'd expect from bar food. I've never hated what I got there. Beer is cold. Other than that I guess I don't know. I know they did go through a change of name/ownership but I haven't been recently.

      I know another place that's Panther friendly for gamewatches has been Johnny's Hall of Fame downtown on Court Ave.

      but who knows what it'll be like since Iowa vs. Minnesota kicks off at 2:30 PM and UNI vs. NDSU kicks off at 3 PM. Bars could be crowded with both fans. Iowa should have no trouble with helpless Minnesota but that's what Iowa fans said last year when Minnesota was 2-9 and they beat #24 Iowa 27-24 for the pig trophy that has nothing to do with football (redesign it!! See: uproar over new cy-hawk trophy).

              Lot's of UNI folks in the Ankeny area. Nice that they are giving us a full room as the aiwa fans will fill up the bar area there.

                Where did you hear they're giving UNI fans our own room?? Are they really? That's nice!
