The Longest Yard sports bar at 122 5th Street in West Des Moines' Valley Junction has reopened after a water pipe break resulted in a temporary closure Thursday evening.
The Hawkeye-themed sports bar and grill made the initial closure announcement on its Facebook page on Thursday: "CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE Due to broken water pipe," the post read.
But three hours later, the bar posted an update letting patrons know the issue had been amended and the bar was once again open.
The Longest Yard features a full bar, nine TVs, a patio and a wide-ranging menu of bar fare such as nachos, tenderloins, pizza and burgers.
