4/17/21: DSM Food Database Updates!

Last week, I had no updates for the DSM Food Database, but this week . . . whoa! I did some digging on Facebook, and I found a bunch of stuff I didn’t know existed. Several new places came across from my friends and family as well. So, here you are. HUGE updates in the graphic below!

Two notes though: Steve McFadden owns Tipsy Crow Tavern, Sambetti’s, Grumpy Goat, and several other places in the area. If you don’t know, he’s not our peeps. Well, he also owns 50th Street Tap, which is now Boomer’s Bicycle Lounge, which means I won’t be trying TäKō.

But the sad part for me is I learned his wife, Trisha, owns Early Bird Brunch, which is opening in West Des Moines. I was looking forward to that one because we have such a shortage of breakfast and brunch places here, but so much for that.

It would help if The Breakfast Club that just opened wasn’t owned by the Gusto Pizza/El Guapo dudes because I don’t like them either. Could we please get a Black-woman owned breakfast place in this fucking city?! OH WAIT. I forgot we live in hell now.

And if you’re the odd racist dickwad hate-reading this, you’re welcome. Lots of places for you to spend your money. Enjoy eating with people who all shit in the the same gene pool. Makes you wonder how many times they coughed on your food. Oh! I guess it would’ve helped if y’all were pro-mask, huh?
