The one and only activity in Iowa, when you're 21, is to go to the bar.
Yeah, if you're a loser, I suppose that's true. Winners do everything from volunteer work to hanging out with their friends, going mudding or doing other cool things.

Per sentence I bolded.

Most miss the chance to try city living and then pretty soon your are married with kids and that window has closed.

I always tell people - you have your whole live to try suburban living...that window never really closes. Try city living while you have the chance!!

They also deliver and if you order more than $100 it is free. No need to haul groceries 10 blocks no matter where you live.
