There will be stories about the times love worked and when it fell flat on its face — and everything in between. Get your tickets here. If that's not something you think you'd be into, here are several more events happening this month that you should check out. Ok, now...enough of the the small talk, let's get (in)formation....

WE GIVE OUT AWARDS FOR THIS...TROPHIES!

It's that time of year again, folks! We're looking for you to nominate young professionals who have dedicated their past year to increasing the livelihood of the Des Moines metro community in various ways. There's even a new award category this time around, DSM Creative of the Year, which highlights an individual who is pushing creativity in their field, whether it be art, graphic design, music, food styling, interior design, architecture or another area of work or study.

Get it done: Nominate a friend or colleague for a YP award
