For all the bees who grew up in Iowa but moved out of state because of life.. what do you miss.
I like in Wichita, Kansas now. I miss in no particular order:
- Olde Main
- Taco John’s
- The smell of sweet corn on a summer night
My Fiance and I joke that everything is better in Iowa. 🙂

I grew up in NJ and now live in PA I didn’t even know what AMES was till Icame here. Sometimes its hard to think about where I’m from, even thoough i love where i am now, sometimes I miss those little things too 🙂

I’m living in Boston, now, and I also miss Taco John’s! Mostly, though, I miss my favorite Des Moines places (lived there the whole time I was in IA).

@babylou: My brother is going to school at Drake and it gives us a great excuse to get back and visit some of our favorite places and restaurants. And now Trader Joe’s. We don’t have one here and I love their freeze dried fruit so I always stock up when we get back!

@jalaamarie: My Fiance and I both went to Drake. 🙂 Do you guys go to Django when you visit him? If not, I highly recommend it . . . though it’s not exactly cheap or anything. It was one of my favorite spots!

I went to Iowa State and miss Ames all the time! It’s such a huge change going back now with all the new buildings. I was in the COD all the time and now the practice field next to it is gone and covered with a new building!
I miss West Street Deli like no one would know, so delicious and smells amazing just walking by!
I’m going to a wedding there in September and it will be so fun to walk around campus again!

@alli: West Street Deli. So delicious. My goal this year is to get back and go to a couple of football games and get to walk around campus. I want to see all the changes they have made. Iowa State campus is one of my favorite places on earth. Of course I am a little biased. 🙂

Now listen, there’s more to Iowa than Ames!! HAHA…Says the Hawkeye 😉 I grew up in the Quad Cities, and it’s funny cause I was just thinking today about what I miss! We moved to Michigan, north of Detroit…and while it’s beautiful, it’s not home. I miss HyVee too!! ESPECIALLY HyVee Chinese Food!!! Also, I miss Hungry Hobo and taco pizza!! (Why is it all food?! Bad, very bad!). Randomly, I can’t find diet cream soda either, which just ticks me off!
