A police report said about 60 people were involved. Officers said they have received little cooperation from witnesses.

You've got to be kidding. This was a particularly barbaric act. These people acted like a pack of wild dogs. Some of the 60 people in the crowd could have shouted and demanded that it be stopped. Some, if only one, of the 60 people should have had their cell phones on record for the police. If the man dies, those 60 people who stood around watching should feel a twinge in their stomach and conscience.
If it happened anywhere in Des Moines, it doesn't lessen the severity. But it also happened in our beautiful downtown where we have a special pride for the progress made in the past few years.

4th Down Sports Bar had a soft opening Tuesday at 207 Fourth St. in Des Moines and celebrates its grand opening tonight, Friday.
Itâ€™s in the underground space on the east side of Fourth Street â€“ 4th down, sports, location â€“ get it?
Anyway, the bar has six 50-inch flat screen TVs that will run all pay-per-view games and, beginning Feb. 6, UFC fights.
Drinks and shots are $3 all day, all the time. Beer is not on tap. Domestic beer is served in tall-boy cans; imports and specialty beers in bottles.

I'm not sure where the rumblings were that Buzzard Billy's may be looking at the commercial space in the Rumely Building, once it's completed, but I thought I remembered seeing that here somewhere.
The guys behind Full Court Press need a key to the city or something. What they've done for downtown's nightlife scene is incredible. We would be left with strip mallesque places (Pelican Bar, Legend's) and sports bars for an entertainment district, if not for the effofts that these guys have put in.
