Universtiy of Iowa #12 Party School

With Spring Break approaching (and this inexplicably only now popping up on my Google Alerts), it’s fun to reminisce about some of the awards our vaunted University has won this year. #12 party school being near the top. If you’ve ever lived within a mile of campus, or done a little tailgating, this should come […]

Mixes Mixes Mixes

Not only do I occasionally do a DJ mix from time to time, I host other people’s mixes as a favor. And seeing as how the average LV reader is not an electronic dance music fan, I feel I should do my part and introduce you to some free mixes to listen to. Tom Cox […]

Iowa City Weekender – February 13-15

Last weekend was a lost weekend for the weekender. My usual Thursday morning weekender write up time was replaced with a trip to the hospital for the birth of my daughter. Sorry, priorities.

Health: Will Work For Food
