Iowa City CP'ers

Tell me of your city. I'm going to be working up here for the foreseeable future and I'd appreciate any of the usual info. Restaurants, things to do, mechanics, doctors, so on and so forth you'd recommend. I'm 26 and have a fiancee if that gives you any cues on stuff to do.

I know U of Iowa is here and the city isn't that big. I'm guessing most everything centers around the University. I know the weather sucked here today so that's no different than KC. Are the winters even more awful? I'm presuming they are. That's about all I got right now.

Just help a guy out.

I know a lot about Iowa City. I live an hour South of IC. My brother lives there. I've partied countless times in Iowa City. I'm there all the time. I was just there yesterday.

First off, Falbos Pizza. I have gone to Chicago for a 4 day trip the past 6 years in a row. I make it a point to eat pizza every day I am there in an attempt to find something that tastes better than Falbos. I have tried 18-20 places in the Chi (and researched the pizza hot spots prior to going) and I've NEVER found anything better than Falbos pizza. It is fan....freaking...tastic.

With your apparent music interests, you would really enjoy hanging out/partying at a place on the outskirts of the ped mall called The Moose Lodge. It's not to crammed and it's never dead and they are notorious for having up and coming and/or local bands playing there every night. I think you'd like that place.

The ped mall is unbelievably packed on weekends. You being a football, you'd probably enjoy The Sports Column and/or The Fieldhouse. I'd stay away from the Summit. I've always referred to is as "The Scummit." A lot of rich pricks. A lot of cocaine. A lot of whores. You are engaged, you seem cool enough....I'd avoid that place.

Coralville, which is like a suburb/connected to Iowa City has a bunch of nice restaurants and a nice mall.

The winters are freaking horrendous. Not gonna sugar-coat it.

Don't know if you are a wrestling fan, but there is a lot of the best wrestling that you will ever witness (at all levels; youth, high school, college) in Iowa City.

The house-parties are generally funner than hell in Iowa City...it's noise complaint galore if you are partying south of Hwy 2 though.

Moose Lodge though...I think that's right up your alley (from what I've gathered).

I don't think it is a shit-hole by any means, but you are right...there are some PRETENTIOUS PRICKS in Iowa City. Freaking hipsters. I hate them. You can work your way around them though.

Hell, from Riverside...10-15 minutes South of Iowa City.

Every year they have a Star Trek convention because of that. Some crazy trekkies just flood that place.

This is pretty much wrong.

It's a college town, and a decent one. If you aren't a hawkeye fan, you won't like it as much.

Don't kid yourself. The "rich" part of it may be relative, but there's still a divide.

There is plenty to do in that area.

Your poker game is 20 minutes south at Riverside...also home of Capt Kirk and you can catch that festival soon.
There are plenty of good places to eat, there is a nice mall and if you need culture, IC is full of hoity toity hippies who like to get stoned and weave rugs and paint with their bush fuzz or pottery with their feet. If you like sports...the town is built on that and making Doctors.
If you like outdoors stuff, message me and I'll tell you where to fish.

I'll likely be over there for a day every week or two for the rest of the summer getting little man back to full speed.

A group of guys went down for a basketball game there once. Tried to drink a whiskey Coke in every bar. Failed miserably.

No.

Despite my failure to spell Chase Daniel's name correctly a few weeks ago , I am college educated...have my B.A. and am still in college, working on expanding my options. If all goes as intended, I will have my practitioner's license in 3 years. I don't consider myself a pretentious prick. I've had my moments where I've been a prick...a huge one, usually due to drinking too much alcohol. Not simultaneously pretentious though, although I've probably had my moments.


Pretentious- attempting to impress by affecting greater importance, talent, culture, etc., than is actually possessed. Claiming or demanding a position of distinction or merit, especially when unjustified

Prick (in the context used in this thread)- insulting terms of address for people who are stupid or irritating or ridiculous

I think "condescending pricks" are a more accurate way of describing some of them.

Haha, I never mentioned the word, "rich." Although there are tons of dudes from Johnston, Iowa who seem to flock there and run the Summit....every one of them are rich.

I have a college degree too, man. I never said anything about rich, just everyone in Iowa City seems to think they're better than anyone else in the state.

It's true. Hell, I went to a private college that consisted of 75% Chicaburbians. Bunch of arrogance at the college I went to. I mean, I got along with most of them...but wasn't blind to it. Most of them didn't even realize they came off that way. Iowa City people aren't too far off when compared to them...and that's saying a lot.
