Proving Des Moines is NOT boring

Food For Thought: Dinner at the Firehouse!

Year number five of the Des Moines Social Club‘s Annual Dinner takes a new location, which should now be the permanent home.  The updates have been Food-For-Thought-Poster-Email2abundant as DMSC has secured ownership and keys of the city’s Firehouse at 900 Mulberry Street.

With the new unveiling of plans and construction set to begin, it’s obvious that the majority of supporters across Iowa are pumped for this. As a Board member, I will be on hand Thursday night as this year’s Food For Thought will be offering tours and DMSC’s first performances in the new digs.  In addition to that, of course there will be dinner served by our city’s top chefs.  This will instantly be a historic night for Des Moines.

Don’t miss the first event at the firehouse! Featuring two parties, music by Cashes Rivers, DJ 810, The River Monks, and Jordan Mayland, guided firehouse tours, slide down the fire pole, paint a collaborative mural, and much more!
