Since it is located in the Georgetown area, one would think that Chadwick's is the real-life St. Elmos from the movie of a similar name. It has its own bar area, and an area upstairs for extra dining as well as another bar. Pictures line the walls of political figures of both parties. Definitely a place where a few policies were discussed over a few beers.
We enjoyed a great brunch giving us good reason to believe that all meals are delicious.

It was a "Red Out" for the Iowa game. All Arizona fans were encouraged to wear their Arizona red.
But the Hawkeye fans were prominent. At least 10,000 Hawkeye fans stood out in their gold shirts.
Sun sets on the Tucson downtown district.
Joined by my colleague at the University of Arizona, Tim Cummins.
The radio show attracted many students as they made their way to class, but the attention grabber is Sports Nation which will be televised live from the same location later in the day.
Cowherd took time to interact with the Iowa students during his commercial breaks as seen below.
Cowherd on his take of the National League Pennant Race and his favorite to make it to the World Series.
Cowherd talks about working with the beautiful Michelle Beadle and what his wife thinks about it.

Moon Fish in Orlando is one of the better dining experiences I have had. The fact that it resides in a strip mall does not diminish the quality of food you will receive. Steaks, fish and sushi are the highlights of this restaurant not far from International Boulevard. Portions are more than generous, and no matter how full you become, you don't want to leave anything on your plate behind.
And what better is there with a good steak than a nice glass of wine. A variety of wines greet you with something your taste buds will enjoy.
While sounding very formal, Moon Fish is a very casual place to dine. A good place to take the spouse, meet business clients or relax with friends. Moon Fish will not disappoint.

Packed within are the different shirts and hats that may be needed for availability as well as equipment needed by the Hawkeye training, managerial and video staffs.
Drivers Jeff and Billy closed the doors on the attractive semi just before 1pm and headed down the road for Arizona. They plan on pulling into town sometime Thursday evening. On Friday morning they will drop off the hotel required at the team's hotel then meet the team at the airport to pick up extra items that were needed to be flown down on the same flight as the Hawkeyes.
Game time is 9:30pm (Iowa time) and can be seen on ESPN. This is the only match-up of the day between two teams voted in the top 25, and one of three on the slate facing teams from the Big Ten and Pac 10.

The former site of Melrose Market and Taste of Melrose, Stella's is a quaint dining experience with a variety of menu choices that changes every two months. The signature of each dish is the freshness of foods from the area. Iowa pork or meat will always be found on the menu with a nice selection of assorted fruits and vegetables from the area.
Variety is the word one would describe the assortment of beers on tap. Gone are the regulars such as Bud Light and Miller Lite, but Pabst Blue Ribbon, Pilsner Urquell and Hoefgarden are part of the lineup such as local beers from the Amanas and Knoxville, Iowa.
Parking and seating is limited as it sits on the edge of little University Heights. Stella's is able to accomodate more in the warmer Iowa months as the large front doors open to outdoor seating to the south and west. Parking is limited to the small lot shared by a dentist office and city hall. The large Kinnick Stadium parking lot, a Kaeding, Alamo Bowl game-winning field goal away may be your best bet.
Stella's has only been open for a week and within days will also be open for breakfast and lunch. Dinner meals will be under $20 and judging by the soft opening last week, it will be worth it.

A first of a television network visiting Kinnick Stadium, they did their open from the Video booth and not within their network tv booth next door. The reason ESPN on ABC found this site compelling is that is allowed the viewers at home to see into the stadium, and not of the skyline (University of Iowa Hospitals). Both Iowa and Iowa State's video staffs had a little over two minutes to set up in time for the opening kickoff. Below is the video:

A couple of things you can count on when visiting Brian: 1. The popcorn is plenty and goes well with the cold draws. 2. Always a game on the television. If Iowa and Iowa State are both on at the same time, he caters to both clientel showing each school on the many televisions. and 3. If there isn't a game on, Brian has no other news station on, but that of his brother, KCCI - Channel 8.
On this weekend of Iowa and Iowa State, you know you can watch the game here and have friends, as well as enemies, around.

new tailgating policies were in effect for Iowa Football 2010. Those policies affected everyone in University lots.
