North West Iowa

Recently I had the privilege of attending the 50th Anniversary Party of Central Patti’s parents, O and K. V in Alton Iowa. The weekend started with a quick stop at the Ameristar Casino in Omaha and some drinks in the Ameristar Sports Brew Pub. This is a great little secret in Omaha with a great view of all the people that enter the Casino. If you are more into people watching than gambling (like we are) this is a great place to hang out for an evening. The food is very good and as expected has all the pub food you normally find in a sports bar.

The next evening we had dinner and drinks at the 4 Brothers Bar and Grill in La Mars Iowa. This bar and grill was very well laid out with a very cozy bar. The menu was very broad and the steak salad, while a little tough had a great flavor. The people in small town America are very, very friendly and provide some great hospitality.

The main event was held on Saturday and started with Bloody Marys around 8:30 while decorating the Alton Country Club Bar for the event. We were joined by G. and K. V. for the decorating festivities and family pictures were taken just prior to the start of the reception luncheon. I was given the honor of handing out the drink tickets (1 per person) which some laughed at, but being the professional drinker I am no one received more that 1 ticket including myself. I kept a separate tab for my drinks and did buy a few others for select individuals. The Bar Tender M. did a great job and even though my bar tab totaled more than the rest of the bar put together I can honestly say a good time was had by all.
