WTF, Des Moines?

  • The revitalization gentrification of Highland Park continues. I don’t want to be nasty toward the business owners opening there. At least one of them is a friend. I’m frustrated by the way the businesses don’t reflect the surrounding neighborhood. White folks, this is where we’ve repeatedly asked you to step in. Try to jump in and help before Performative February comes along, yeah?
  • Cheng’s Garden. What are you doing? Also, I get a dumb laugh out of a place called “The Dirty Dog” in Waverly having a gross inspection. Lastly, International Buffet has some of the worst reviews I’ve ever seen, so their inspection results don’t surprise me.
  • Who DOES have the worst reviews I’ve ever seen? This fucking car wash.
  • No, I’m not gonna talk about Perry here. I’ll probably write about it in a separate post.
