63. I remember that bar...

When I went to school at the University of Iowa it was called the Fieldhouse. It was a big dance club, and it was a very wild fraternity/sorority hangout. All of the beautiful people hung out there and the place had quite the reputation.

The U of I is a huge party school. It was nuts. I think Jack Kerouac said, "I've been all over the world and the most beautiful women in the world are in Iowa City, Iowa.". It's bizarre, but 20 percent of the student population looks like super models. This Iowa City bar is capitalizing on that, and discriminating--and they should be called out.

Edited to add--CORRECTION--Kerouac did say this quote, not about the women of Iowa City, Iowa--but Des Moines, Iowa.
