Latest, greatest places for foodies in Iowa City area

Hello, fellow Chowhounders. We, my husband and myself and our 4 children (all mini-foodies under the age of 10) and our extended family, will be in the Iowa City area (staying at the Heartland Inn??) for a funeral this Sunday and Monday, and we are all obsessive foodies looking for yummy places to eat/consume cocktails, craft beers, etc. No chains please. However, it is Sunday, so if my hubby sees he can crawl to the NFL games on the big screens at Old Chicago, I may not see him the entire day. :) We are up for anything: pizza, and everything and anything ethnic! Any yummy food trucks circling the campus at all? Thank you so much in advance for any insight!

Rez for a fabulous dinner in Minneapolis, Saturday, the 18th--poor planning, I know...

Rez for a fabulous dinner in Minneapolis, Saturday, the 18th--poor planning, I know...

Ridiculously late notice, I am aware; however, any advice on a Minneapolis restaurant where 6 of us can possibly still get a rez for Saturday the 18th that's worthy of a really nice dinner to celebrate a birthday/holidays and have a great time??? Money isn't a factor, and we are a really friendly and fun group (imbibing quite a bit with taxis, of course--we're staying at the W.). We're starting at Bradstreet for cocktails (unless otherwise advised!!) and then where??? Any thoughts?? I so appreciate any ideas and/or comments, and may your holiday season find you stuffed full of fabulous food with a good buzz...

Thanks so much. I've heard that about the pork sandwich! What about the pho? Ever had it there?

Anyone else from Mpls. area headed to the Caymans to hang out with Anthony B.??

Hey, Hounders! Just wondering if anyone else from the Mpls. area is traveling to the Caymans for Eric Ripert's Food and Wine weekend in January? I'm planning on attending, and I'm wondering if anyone can tell me more about the Caymans, such as where the locals hang out for great food, any great dive bars, and, of course, any can't-miss food shacks off the beaten path, etc. Would love any insight anyone may have--thanks so much in advance...C.
