    BRAND NEW!!

    All I heard of summer was how many people (and kids) enjoyed Cedar Falls' new Aquatic Center.

    I drove by today and tried to take a picture. Sorry part of the fence go in the picture. New, clean and I hear well run.

    Lots of fun in the water Brand new!

    If you want to hang with the younger crowd or want to have something to eat or drink after a sporting event at the UNI Dome, stop by College Hill.

    It is the street on the Northeast corner of the UNI campus.

    The University of Northern Iowa has serveral things to offer.

    The UNI Dome hosts a lot of various events. It is located on the west side of teh UNI campus. UNI is located on the west side of Cedar Falls.

    The Gallagher-Bluedorn Performing Arts Center is located on the UNI campus too. This week George Carlin was there for example.

    Sometimes there are other speakers too. Last Spring I saw John Nash speak at one of UNI's buildings. Everyone knows who he is. Russell Crow played Nash in the movie, "Beautiful Mind."

    See my picture of Nash during his speech

    The UNI Dome is home to the University of Northern Iowa Athletics. The Panthers.

    Old Chicago has excellent pizza. They also have a wide variety on their menu of other American options. They are located in the College Square Mall, just east of the UNI campus about 5 blocks on University Avenue.

    Favorite Dish: Pizza

    Probably the best restaurant in Cedar Falls.

    Nice menu mainly driven by Texas Roadhouse's greta tasting steaks.

    Free peanuts, good service, great food.

    There are a lot of people who eat here for a reason. You might have to wait in the mall for a couple of minutes if you arrive late or on a weekend.

    The Texas Roadhouse has the best hot buns with cinnamon butter. Free as are the peanuts. Sometimes I get too full! I guess that's a good problem vs. not liking the food and going home hungry.

    Note...this restaurant has moved east of the mall about 3 blocks in a free standing building.

    Favorite Dish: Steak (and the free peanuts and hot buns!)

    Texas Roadhouse

    One of my favorite restaurants in Cedar Falls is Montage on Main Street.
    A savory meal with an unusual name. It is a unique blend of southern cooking with an upscale preparation and flavor. As a vegetarian meal it is one of the best. The cakes are served with piping hot corn pudding and an interesting salsa topping of peppers and other vegetables. Fabulous! The prices are quite reasonable for the atmosphere and supreme quality of food.

    Favorite Dish: I usually order the Johnny Cakes.

    Favorite thing: One of my favorite things is going to the UNI-DOME for UNI Panther football games. We have a nationally ranked 1-AA football team here and the place gets rocking when the Panthers are home for games. Come see us when we play SW Missouri for a great time...if you can get a ticket that is.
