It's attractive choker day!
Carole Kuehl Rest In Peace
Did Brad Franzwa make it in on his birthday on Saturday?
I am posting this for Ellen Kapp.
You are all invited to a celebration of life for Bill Kapp on Saturday, June 5th. A short service will be held at 1:00 at Memorial Gardens, 2600 Muscatine Avenue, followed by a get together at the American Legion at 3016 Muscatine Avenue. Bring your Bill stories, many of us have them.
Edie has declared a Snow Emergency so I will be enjoying homemade rum and cokes and caramel corn. Won’t be all bad.
AWOL today. I think you know why.
Late Saturday afternoon, 10/10/20.
George's is part of the Northside Fundraiser:

If you live on the Northside of Iowa City, you know how special it is. You know how much our local small businesses mean to this community.

And whether you live on this side of town or not, you've probably sipped a PBR at George's, had an incredible pop tart at Goosetown, enjoyed a wildly creative concoction at Wild Culture...the list goes on...

This fundraiser was started with the small, simple mission to support local Northside small businesses while giving back to the Northside healthcare professionals who are working tirelessly to care for those affected by this pandemic.

Every dollar you donate will not only help these Northside small businesses stay afloat; every dollar will ALSO be gifted to someone working to keep people within this neighborhood and this city alive during this crisis.

Please donate, share, post comments, post pictures of yourself goofing around in these wonderful establishments!
To many, this is the heart of Iowa City. Let's show them some heart !!!

I stopped by the Buffet a few weeks ago & found you are closed until:????? I want to purchase a gift certificate. If you would contact me as to how I can get this done - I would be so grateful. Thank you so much!! Junell Duwa
Wish I was at George's with a cheeseburger playing some Bill Withers on the jukebox.
Can’t wait to go back and have a cold Hamm’s at George's Buffet and about a hundred cheeseburgers. Here’s my jade I bought at the 80th celebration.

Best known for its cheeseburgers, hot nuts, and great happy hour(s) deal: $1 draws & $5 pitchers of Bur Oak Old 63, Monday-Friday 11am-5pm , George's has been an Iowa City staple since 1939.

Come check out our outdoor seating.

Operating as usual

We lost a dear friend a year ago today. Another dear friend stopped in and wanted a Wild Turkey poured in his honor. Rest In Peace, Richard, your kindness and laughter will live forever in our hearts.

It’s “Fun Fact Friday”
Did you know that George’s has outdoor seating that is dog friendly? This is Lola, and her pal, Dave. They had a great time visiting!
Here are some guidelines for you if you choose to bring your dog to the patio:
*your dog must be well behaved
*your dog must be on leash at all times, that extends no more than 4 feet, near you, do not tether your dog to a table, chair or fencing. (This is to ensure safety of others and our staff carrying glasses in and out of the area.)
*please pick up after your dog
*only service animals are allowed indoors
*dogs are not allowed on tables or chairs
*one person can have no more than two dogs
*be respectful of others
*you are responsible for any injuries your dog may cause on another person or dog
*again, your dog must be well behaved
*since seating is limited, no more than 4 dogs allowed in the beer garden at one time
*if it looks like your dog is not having fun, they probably aren’t. Take them home and come back
*have fun
Cheers!🍻🍔💕🐶
