How's that for a mouthful?
I'm currently residing in Brooklyn, NY and have decided that when my lease runs out in mid-2010, I'd like to take a stab at living in the Midwest. (As someone who has lived in both Southern and Northern California, two areas of Georgia, New Orleans, Austin, and NYC, I know plenty about relocation adventures!)
I'll be in Iowa City in October to check it out. I went to college and graduate school in Athens, GA and did love the college-town feel: small but not too small, friendly and cultured but not overwhelming.
My goal: to find a few good places to eat and drink while in town wherein I won't feel too "old" and out-of-touch with the youthful vibe of the town but also won't have to elbow fraternity brothers out of the way to get a drink at the bar. I love me some wine (and friendly bartenders!) and there will have to be something pescetarian-friendly on the menu.
Do places like this even exist? And will I be stared at endlessly as a single woman drinking and dining by herself in Iowa City?
Your help is much appreciated!
