Thanks for the question about the war. I thought Thompson’s answer was interesting. Go to Iowavotes2008.com for more on all of the candidates and visits this week.
He said he’d like to have the Iraqi citizens vote on whether US troops should stay or leave. He used the phrase “winning the peace,” saying sticking with the current strategy would yield the same results we’re getting now, which is in his words, “crazy.” TS
On Saturday we went out to dinner at a new restaurant I mentioned here before. It’s called Dubay’s and it was simply the best meal I’ve had around here in a long time. If you missed the old post, this is the restaurant that replaced the old Varsity Cafe on 25th there across from Drake. The atmosphere was great, the food was better. It’s on the higher side of normal for price but it’s worth it. Try this one out!
Sunday morning we finally tried the new Gateway Market. Breakfast was good. It struck me as pricey at first then I saw how much food you get. I had the Heuvos Rancheros and thought it was a little spicy for a 90 degree day. Should have had the fried egg sandwich. Sally and her Mom had a Croissant and said it was one of the best they’ve had in a long time.
We went over to the market after we ate and this was the real highlight for me. I mean no offense here because I think both add to the food landscape here in the Metro, but unlike the market at Jordan Creek, Gateway actually had some things I would consider buying. In fact, we did. There’s a kind of beer you can’t usually get outside of Michigan that I really like. Gateway is carrying it. The store had a lot of Iowa products which I did not see out at Jordan Creek. The selection was smaller, but I think it was more user friendly if that makes sense.
