Visitors from the Bay Area

I need your help.

Last month I read an article about Des Moines in the San Francisco Chronicle. The author of the piece, David Prowler, had been hearing a lot of good things about Des Moines, but was determined to never visit because he wanted to keep his expectations from being shattered.

For some reason, I decided to email him with an invitation to come. I told him our city would meet his expectations and that he would be pleasantly surprised by what he saw. In true the-Internet-makes-anything-possible fashion, David emailed me yesterday to let me know a small delegation of Bay Area businessmen are headed to Des Moines this October. And that, dear readers, is why I need your help.

I want to help them have the best experience possible while they’re here. I’ve reached out to Krause Gateway Center regarding a private your and obviously I’ll suggest they visit St. Kilda Surf + Turf and Horizon Line Coffee, but I’d love to hear what you think would make their visit worthwhile. If you have ideas (or connections) comment below or shoot me an email. I’d love to be able to send them a list of recommendations.

Let’s help them say hello to the city.
