Well, I'm willing to break my self-imposed ban on Public posts for this cause.  There's nothing about this story that isn't important to me. #neverseconds  
 
 This is an excellent story, about a kid who effected change in her school, then was silenced by higher authorities. But read to the end...:)

And people like the Koch brothers get to live into their ripe old senility. Damn it.

I visited recently with my brother-in-law after a search for craft brew taps in downtown Minneapolis returned this bar. We walked right in at about 8:15 on a Friday night (after a seven-minute walk from the Westin) and sat at the bar. The restaurant (capacity: 164) was full but not crowded, and there was a nice mix patrons. NCAA basketball played on the couple flat screens above the bar, but they weren't intrusive. Noise level was just right; my companion and I could converse just fine but couldn't make out the conversation at the table directly behind us. The physical beer menu, presented on a single, double-sided page, was easy to navigate and informative, and the beers on tap the night I visited were a great sample of local and regional beers along with some *really* great brews from both coasts. The bartenders were friendly and knowledgeable, and their service was perfect. For food, I ordered a "Triple" of pork meatballs with mushroom sauce and a side of fries ($9). It's conceivable, I suppose, that there's more perfect bar food out there somewhere, but you'd have to fight this meal to prove it. Like the beer menu, the food menu is concise and easy to understand. The evening's crowning glory was overhearing the increasingly boisterous, increasingly drunken rant by the defensive psychology graduate three stools down who clearly felt that he'd been unfairly stigmatized over the years due to the relative worthlessness of his degree. As an English major, I could relate, but the glass full of Great Lakes Alchemy Hour in front of me made it impossible to wallow in self pity for even a moment.

I've eaten every pizza available in Iowa City at one time or another over the course of the last 35 years, and the best Chicago-style pie in town is the Greek veggie from Wig & Pen East. The shop is nothing to look at, but, then, it's carryout only. My order is always ready on time, and the guys who work there are friendly. What's more, their online ordering site actually works! Highly recommended.
