Every time we go downtown I ask myself why we live in Des Moines

my brother couldnt keep a radio in his car for two weeks when he lived in des moines. he just stopped buying new ones after awhile. sad.
ROCK ON!!! Proud of the 515!!!
nebraska is not worse than iowa, love. sorry
shut up iowa sucks
ive been here for 17 years and it sucks
Ames is where it's at.
des moines is great. worst city in iowa hands down is OTTUMWA. such a shit hole. i know des moines isn't THE most exciting place in the world but be thankful for what you got buddy!
I live in Des Moines, but I make my own nightlife. That's how to do it.
Des Moines is the shit. I live in Texas, but i lived up there for a while. Its awesome. Deal with it
I love Des Moines, but I feel the same way when I'm there. You get all hyped up, but when u get out your disappointed.
All I have to say is if you think DSM sucks, try living in Ft. Dodge... DSM will look 100x better...
I'm looking to possibly go to school in Iowa. Should I reconsider??
des moines isn't that bad! don't mock.
Des Moines sucks. I know because I had the majorly unfortunate displeasure of living there fore 11 months. (Moved for work.)
People are close minded. Everyone is white. All the chicks carry tacky Coach monogrammed bags, most of which are FAKE. The nightlife is basically non existent. The music scene is non existent as well.
Lets put it this way, Des Moines makes Kansas City and Minneapolis look like New York, okay? Its THAT bad.
making your own nightlife is much better than going clubbing... i dont think can post most of the texts i receive from my drunken friends. i dont hate iowa or des moines, but they are definitely NOT the greatest places to party.
If you're going to bag on DM at least learn how to spell....and god bless you 11:10!
Whatever I always have a great time out in Des Moines!! And Iowa is awesome! :)
I love all the bashing! The best thing about Iowa is that everyone that sucks, thinks Iowa sucks, so they stay the F*** out, leaving only great people =D. The stigma of Iowa being lame is the best douchebag/fucktard deterrent around! whoop whoooop! I mean if I wanted to hang with pretentions pricks i'd totally move to Seattle (or even at times MPLS), but I don't.
Iowa city!!!! Go hawks! Des Moines is cool too
It could be worse, we could be in Nebraska.
"The prettiest girls in the world live in Des Moines." -Jack Kerouac
Every time I leave Des Moines, I can't wait to get back. No other city in the 47 states that I have been to, would I rather live in. Iowa: The Few the Proud, The Extremely Attractive. Go Hawks!
fuck ames. iowa cityyyy
im from des moines and i never have/had a problem surrounding myself with plenty to do...gotta love working in the bars. IOWANIGHTLIFE...look it up. and yes...IOWA CITY is my favorite place ive lived. it knows how to party...like a boss
AMES LAMES ha, pretty original....never heard that one before.... . and Iowa City blows...no one cares if it's a top party city in this nation because wherever anyone goes they should know how to party.
Don't worry there ain't shit to do in Omaha, NE either.
why would you try to promote Lames? i would rather be in CF. at leats they have a bar that has free beer on tuesdays, and a strip club that has free beer on wednesdays. anyways, i am from the QCA (563)!!! but still Iowa, is NOT where the place to be is... i guess make do with what ya got...
Des moines is cooler than your town in my eyes.
you've got to make you're own fun wherever you are
Oh how I miss the dsm. Iowa Shitty has been a real bitch to me.
One word: Lumberyard.
Grab a case and some buddies and you've got yourself a party.
I love Des Moines! I wish I was living there now. Waterloo blows!
Whee Iowa. Des Moines is way better than living in a town with 800 people 50 miles from the nearest minor city and no one your age.
DSM has been a great town to grow up in. Admittedly there is not a whole lot to do if you're not into the bar/club scene, but I'd rather live here than any other state.
Poor people... living in Des Moines...
@ 8:00 everyone is not white... I went to East High School us white folk were the minority. I love DES moines haha
I lived in Iowa for 5 years and in DSM for one of those. It's not as happening as bigger cities, but it does have its charm and definitely sets the scene for many great, epic stories. I miss me some Court Avenue, music at Blues on Grand, crazy nights at Drink and Hessen Haus, and winding down at Village Inn! Plus, all the awesome festivals!
Hmm. Iowa finally made it on this website? About time. You would think more people would end up with texts on here with all the Meth that goes through this state.
one of the best things about Des Moines is EAST SIDE NIGHT AT THE FAIR!!!!!!
Did someone just list Clear Lake with Des Moines as being awesome? Of course, they did spell Dubuque wrong. You try being a young single female living in Clear Lake.
12:30 must not know the right places to go. I live on Court Ave and have an awesome time down here. So much better than WDSM. We just need to get rid of Kamodo Club, 101, and Surf Shack to get rid of the white trash
Des Moines native, and Downtown BLOWS! You know life blows when they most excitement you get downtown is Java Joes and walking through the skywalk...
OK is someone really trying to bash IA city? It is rated as one of the top party cities in the NATION! and it def lives up to it's title :) you cant bash the city until you have spent a night partying there.. GO HAWKS!
Lol, typical Iowans, if you'd just search your Area code you'd realize there are more Iowa stories on this site...
woooo iowaaaa!!! way better than new jersey at least
It doesnt matter where you are from or what you do. it's the people you surround yourself with is what makes it a good time. and being from iowa i can admit we are some crazy fucking people! downtown is always a for sure shit show :)
well said, 12:08, turbo fail indeed
That's the fun of living in DSM lmao. Nothing to do!!!
u guys are all idiots
des moines & iowa city beat Lames anyday. you just need to hang out w/ the right people and go to the right places. :)
Des Moines: greatest city in the world!
For the record, DSM skywalks are always an excellent adventure!
my boyfriend and i live in illinois, already an hour apart, and this summer he's moving to FUCKING DES MOINES, FUCKING IOWA. hate life.
sex in des moines is like having sex in the forest, all alone and without protection from the animals.
bahaha i live in dport in the quad cities.. not much better!! ((563))
seriously though,,,finally a 515...
AMMMMESS!! I am here right now!
des moines... Dont u mean dead moines?
Lies! Every time I go anywhere in Nebraska, I want to kill myself.
Iowa is the shit!!!! Even though there's a bunch of wanksters, I still love this place.
Go Hawks! and the Downtown DSM nightlife is a great time!
(515) born and raised!!
Dmi sukks. The people are the worst park about the city
Debuke, Des Moines, Davenport, Mason City, Ames, Clear Lake.... ought to give Iowa a try!!
Bitch bitch bitch, that's all you people do, bitch bitch bitch...
Grew up in Des Moines, lived in NJ (worst place on earth), CA, TN, VA, TX, and HI... came back to Des Moines and won't live anywhere else. Iowa is the best!
I agree 12:21! I grew up in DM but currently live in Chicago. I still love going back and always have a great time!
red jumpsuit apparatus tonight + liars club.. + ISU/ames... nothing better
You live in Iowa, and you're arguing with someone from Nebraska about which state sucks more. Turbo fail.
It is a cool song though...yes....I'm a TDWP fan.....you may begin your trolling now.
yea, i'm a des moines native... not much of a nightlife
Psh whateva I'm in japan right now and don't get
me wrong Okinawa is def legit!! But I'll always lovevee Iowa <3
Hmmmm.... Ames, Des Moines, or Iowa City? That's like asking someone what kind of bear they'd want to get mauled by. Every choice sucks.
yay iowa! it may not be the best night life, but downtown des moines has some great shops like the velvet coat, gong fu tea, and a ton of great vintage shops! not to mention some of the nicest people and a great farmers market. Plus 80-35 last year was fantastic!
Des Moines is awesome and clearly you people aren't from there or know the right places to go. You'd love it too. Downtown is way better than it was even 2 years ago and WDM has good stuff too. Still not a poppin metropolis that I live in today, but every time I go back, I have some killer stories to tell. Don't knock it till you try it!
did someone seriously spell dubuque... debuke? that's sad if you're from iowa.
IOWA CITY DOMINATES
DES MOINES ROCKS
SIOUX CITY BLOWS
Iowa City and Davenport... they really aren't half bad.
Screw Des Moines. I *heart* Cumming Tap.
Every time I go home to DM I wonder why I came back. Iowa City is the place to be. It's not even debatable.
Downtown DSM on a Wednesday??? wtf... nothing going on down there.
IOWA CITY! That's really all that needs to be said.
agreed..seriously a 515..or anything from the area really
Hahaha to the person who said the best things to do are java joes and walking through the skywalk, so true. that's all we do too. but i swear my friends who are 21 say theres a lot to do. just wait a couple years. i agree hs in dm sucked balls though.
really 12:15? i'm pretty sure new jersey has a much better night life than des moines
and i grew up in san francisco. fuck yeah, i love iowa.
AMES IS NOT LAME!!!! I have more fucking stories from that town than anywhere else I have evered traveled to. DSM is a massive shit hole btw....
my family calls it death moan. hawkeyes are the shit anyway
No i've driven through Des Moines.. wouldn't want to live there!
Seriously Iowa City and the University of Iowa is amazing, I wouldn't live anywhere else. the night life in iowa city is the best! always a good time, so many options. :) :) :)
i lived in dsm for the 1st 15 years of my life and moved 2 the twin cities im so bored now on weekends there r way more sporting events concerts and actives going on in dsm that ppl can actually afford ....cant wait to move back 2 iowa for college!
haha damn. I hate dsm. No joke. Sandbar is tight tho.
HOLY SHIT!!! Love seeing the 515 up here! Grew up in Des Moines, moved away... went back this last weekend and had a blast! It has really changed in the last 10 years... lol!
Yeah...been through those parts. Hot Moines it ain't. Sorry.
11:49 must be five and enjoying the mcdonalds playpit then.
Iowa City is the greatest place on earth. And fuck all you DSMers saying go hawks. Y'all just wish you were from IC
i'm from oregon and when i went to visit for my cousin's wedding i had a great time. i got into bars despite being 19 and there were cute midwestern boys galore!
Iowa city bitchesss. Rep the 319;)
I like Des Moines. It's better than where I'm moving next year...
i love it and i hate it, but in the end, i love it
