Good morning, Iowa!

Happy Friday eve! This week sure has gone by quick. I guess time really does fly when you're having fun. Want to have even more fun? Well, #UBERIceCream is coming to Des Moines. All you have to do is open the Uber app on your phone this Friday between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., and you'll get ice cream delivered to you in minutes. Ten dollars gets you six ice cream treats. Go here for more information. Speaking of deliveries, Panera is offering delivery in parts of the Des Moines metro. Orders must be at least $5 and the delivery charge is $3 per order. The company said delivery time is about 30 minutes. Enough with the food deliveries, here's what we're all talking about around Des Moines ...

One of my favorite pastimes during the summer is going out to listen to live music. It's fun. You know what makes that experience even better? Listening to live music that's FREE. I found four places that will feature several live music shows throughout the rest of the summer. Check it out.
