Expanding good intentions


My intentions are always good this time of year. I want to see more live music, catch a stage performance or two, attend a few more games, and just relax in the great outdoors. With summer just around the corner and no shortage of events in central Iowa, my weekends are bound to be packed with fun-filled entertainment.

Like many of you, I save this issue and use it as a guide to fill in the open spots on my calendar, contacting friends to see if they want to join in. The only problem is that there just isn't enough time in a few short months to do it all. I have my tried-and-true events that I hit every year: Iowa Cubs games, the Iowa State Fair, farmers' markets, Brewfest and a handful of concerts. But this year I am going to expand my horizons and use this guide to try some new adventures, too. I encourage you to do the same and to develop a summer plan to take full advantage of everything central Iowa has to offer.

Now get out and enjoy it. CV
