Sunday Funday Help Needed

Sunday Funday used to be the best day of the week!!! There was always something to do and always someone to do it with! Over the weekend, my friend visited from Minneapolis. He arrived on Saturday night. We went out to a couple of spots in the East Village. We figured the real fun would happen on Sunday when we would pub crawl all over Des Moines. Side bar, every March 31st, I celebrate the legacy of the late singer Selena Quintanilla-Perez who was murdered on March 31, 1995. I celebrate her legacy by living OUT LOUD.

Anyway, we walked around East Village on Sunday afternoon hoping to score some margaritas and tacos, but the mexican restauran was closed. We walked and walked and it seemed like so many places her closed. We decided to take it to Court Avenue. There was people wandering around like us. Every single person said they were from another city and they, too, were looking for something to do! None of us could find anything to do!!!! We finally settled on the Hyvee Market Grill on Court Avenue, but unfortunately, by the time we got there, we had just missed the bottomless mimosas!!! Fail! We walked around some more and settled on Johnny's Hall of Fame.

I used to be the party. Why am I having so much trouble finding the party in Des Moines?!?! What am I missing here! Send your comments and suggestions to
