Football season in Big Ten country just feels right and Iowa City has produced an uncountable amount of unforgettable memories. Iowa’s Big Ten town showcases the classic atmosphere of tailgating, campus excitement, historic stadium, and a downtown area that’s loaded with classic restaurants and taverns. Here’s another thing a lot of sports fans love. Road trips!
Our awesome and helpful server, Tiffany, was ecstatic to tell us about the menu and issued a warning about the fish sandwich that Gigi was eyeballing. Tiffany said……”Um..that’s huge. I’m just saying.” Gigi is 7 going on whatever. Gigi ordered the fish sandwich.
Halftime came and we decided to walk the town and see what Montose had to offer while we digested the healthy portions of food we just devoured. We sniffed out some meat cutters, history, and a few of the niches that make Montrose the true scenic river town it claims to be.
I know the story. It’s been weeks since everyone at your tailgater has been impressed by what you brought. It’s not that we don’t appreciate the effort, but the gelatin mold that has canned fruit cocktail and mini marshmallows swimming in the center is what we expect at tomorrow’s church potluck. We….need….MEAT!!! Bring a cooler to Montrose and prepare to load up with some of the freshest cuts from one of the most well-known local butchers.
Here’s another idea. Let your buddies know that you’re getting away for the day. Don’t worry. Your favorite haunt or hangout will be there and manage without you. Do something very familiar while breaking away from your comfort zone. The Iowa weather is still ideal for some great traveling experiences so let’s take in the big game with a new crowd and take the rut out of your routine. Tiffany and the rest of the crew have the perfect game plan on tap for any football fan in the powerhouse called Montrose!
