From reading such local publications as the Des Moines Register and Cityview, I get the impression that much of the local social scene revolves around drinking alcoholic beverages. Are there any activities at all for those who cannot drink? Some cannot drink for religious reasons, some have medical issues and others choose not to drink. But from all the publicity for the winefests, the beer festivals, the local wineries, there appears to be practically no options for non-drinkers to meet others who are also non-drinkers in the Des Moines age. Either the few options for non-drinkers are for young families or are for retired people. What about other people--or are they shunned in Des Moines?
