Moved away 12 years ago. I come back to see family every now and then, and the Downtown Farmers Market is pretty cool...

I also think I had a great childhood, but man were there a lot of 'bunk nights'! I don't miss those. Especially in the winter time.

I think it went something like this.

1995 to 1998 - cruised The Ave. A lot. Helped pioneer extending the turnaround from Hardees up to Handimart on 35th. Also went a lot of places on summer nights like Chain Lakes, Green Castle, 7 Hills, and camping. Wasn't a fan of winter.

1998 to 2000 - Took advantage of Iowa City 18 y.o. bar laws, spent a lot of time at Fieldhouse and a couple others. Had some memorable house parties. Lots of weekends in Chicago or St. Louis. Bowled at CRBC. Still hated winter.

2001 to 2003 - Turned 21. Hit up every bar in town, almost every night. What else is there to do? lol. A lot of bars got flooded out in 08, some rebuilt nicely I see. But Cedar Rapids is basically a bar town. Log Cabin, Coopacabana, City Beat, Rumors, Union, Viking, Earnies, Red Lion, Prime Time, Cocktails, Westside Lounge, the irish district, and my favorite Stadium Lounge. Also worked on our muscle cars and hit up Earlville (Tri State) every now and then.

But that's about it man. I can't say I've ever been bored living where I am now, in a huge city. But sometimes I miss CR. Anything new going on over there?
