On tap today we're talking the opening of Cabaret at the Des Moines Playhouse the Grand Re-Opening of Noce...think some of the best live music in the city. Of course the Downtown Farmers Market gets a shout out. A little football talk, think Iowa vs. Iowa State and it is a big deal. Meanwhile in Ottumwa the Cracktastic Plastic Event...you like comics...this is your deal. Alan Jackson is in town. The Central Library Book Sale is a happening thing. Hoyt Sherman Place has the Robert Cray Band. Valley Junction and their farmers market is a happening thing. Wilco and Trampled by Turtles at the Water Works Park on Thursday.  Did we mention the Knoxville Raceway?  Yes we did! Now get out there and have some fun...you deserve it!
