Eatery embraces history

City council approves site plan, alley lease for revived Monk’s Place

SOLON– “Monk” Meyers is returning to downtown Solon.
The previous owner of a bar at 122 E. Main St., the former Solon Station, will be invoked in the moniker for a new Prohibition-inspired eatery planned for the building.
Details surrounding the new venture were unveiled Wednesday, Feb. 7, as the members of the Solon City Council considered a site plan for the building submitted by John Burchert of MAiNGREDIENT.

New football recruits have talent

Hawk Talk

On Wednesday, Feb. 7, the Hawkeyes finished up their 2018 recruiting class by signing four more recruits.
Iowa signed 18 players in the early signing period in December and it looks like a very talented class, the best since 2011.
The Hawks picked up three four-star recruits on defense and one four-star on offense.
I was able to talk to defensive line coach Reese Morgan about the new kids on the block and he had a lot of good things to say.

Mardi Gras and Carnival

Food For Thought

The term “Mardi Gras” is French for “Fat Tuesday” and refers to the day before the beginning of Lent when Christians used up any rich foods before giving them up during the Lenten period, along with parties and other self-indulgences. The day was the last opportunity for merrymaking, revelry and indulgence in food and drink for the 40 days leading up to Easter.

Wrestlers win two

Hawk Talk

The Hawkeye wrestlers took out Minnesota Friday at Carver, 34-7.
Sunday, they wrestled Northwestern and crushed the Wildcats, 33-2
Minnesota is not the strongest they’ve been, but it’s always nice to beat the Gophers in anything.
The Golden Gophers had six wrestlers ranked and the Hawks won five of those matches.
Brandon Sorensen started the meet with a pin at 149 pounds.
That’s Brandon’s sixth pin of the year, second in a row and moves the second-ranked wrestler to a 17-0 record.

Hawkeyes take out Gophers

The Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde Iowa Hawkeye men showed up with Jekyll (the good guy) leading the way in their 94-80 win over Minnesota last week at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
The winning formula was simple.
Six players in double figures, shoot 55 percent from the field, 48 percent from three, 22 assists and only eight turnovers.

Iowa women win in OT, 71-68

Hawk Talk

The Hawkeye women traveled to East Lansing last week to take on the Spartans.
Iowa controlled the first half and led 37-36 at halftime, but Michigan State took control in the second half, leading by as much as five points.
Megan Gustafson made two free throws to tie the game at 65 at the end of regulation, then made two more in OT to ice the game.
The saying goes that numbers don’t lie... which isn’t always true.
The Hawks had 24 turnovers which resulted in a 24-10 advantage by the Spartans on points off turnovers.

We are sawdust

Walkin'

So, I take my second and last cup of coffee of the day and head out to face the world about 7:30 a.m. Where do I go? Work? Office? School? No, I go to the garage.

All about Cupid

Food For Thought

Cupid, as we visualize him, is a combination of gods from Roman and Greek mythologies. Before the Romans came in contact with the Greek culture, the Roman gods were thought of as powers and forces of nature rather than as having human form. It wasn’t until after the Romans conquered Greece in the third century before Christ was born that writers such as Virgil and Ovid began combining the Greek deities with the Roman ones, creating a hybrid mythology which survives to this day through writings, architecture and art.
