Visiting the Bestie: Another Iowa Trip

As I've mentioned, my bestie moved to Iowa a couple months ago.  How dare her?!!
It's a three hour drive so we can't have every-other-day visits but we've both made a couple trips to hang.  

Jason and I went up there a few weeks ago and checked out some of the neighboring suburbs.

Nachos at a pub that had good food but I can't remember the name

We dipped in to several antique shops and Czech markets.  I behaved myself and didn't buy anything.  It was interesting to see the Czech culture, considering I hadn't been familiar with it before.

I was surprised at the amount of bicyclists.  You had your "Dad in front with kids and mom in tow" and your "College kids doing a bar crawl" crews. Everybody and their dog owned a bicycle!

Iowa is full of biker gangs.

Saturday night we went to a local bar and listened to a live country band.  I don't remember who they were.  Heck, I don't remember getting so many pics taken with them.  Good times!  I even went on my first Uber ride (still waiting for our city to jump on that bandwagon).

Tomorrow I will be heading back up to Iowa and spending several days with Alaina and her family.  Blog posts will be few and far between (if any) but I'll have plenty to post about when I get back.  Hope you have a great Labor Day weekend!

What are your plans for Labor Day weekend?
Have you ever used Uber or Lyft for a ride?
