This past weekend I was back at home in southeast Kansas for a friend’s 21st birthday celebration. I decided to take home a taste of Iowa with me and maybe let him have a try. The celebration was fantastic and I got some much needed down time and some of my mother’s cooking.
My post this week is a little late, but I’ve been traveling this weekend and visiting friends in southeast Iowa. Last week I made my second trip to Exile Brewing Company at 1514 Walnut in Des Moines. Exile has quickly become one of my favorite spots. The food is amazing, I’m always impressed with the staff and I love the dimly lit, almost 1950s feel of their restaurant area.
