Watch Little Village's Second Annual Roast of Iowa City

The second annual roast of Iowa City–Hosted by Yale Cohn–was a terrific success, and we’d like to thank all of you for making it out to The Mill this Sunday to help us heckle, badger, tease and torment this little Midwestern city of ours.

We’d also like to thank those of you who submitted your red-hot roasts to Little Village for review. It goes without saying that these events just wouldn’t be possible without this kind of community support.

For those of you who couldn’t make it out, we suggest checking out some video from the evening’s festivities above. We realize a 43 minute Youtube video might as well be an eternity, so be sure to check out the sidebar to find links of individual roasts for your viewing pleasure.

We hope you found Roast this Town 2 to be a pleasant, booze-fueled exercise in catharsis. We sure did.
