As summer winds down, here is another week for some fun downtown!

Not much happening on Monday, but there is plenty of options for happy hours or Monday Specials like Court Avenue’s Steak Night for $15.

Tuesday is definitely trivia night for downtown Des Moines. You have “Survey Says” at Tipsy Crow Tavern, or Beer Brain trivia at Captain Roy’s and a few other places too. (look on major calendar for full events). Come down with your friends and show off your trivia knowledge!

Wednesday starts off the music for the week. Andrew Hoyt will be playing at the Republic and Black Bird Circus at Peace Tree.

Another thing happening on Wednesday is the State Fair Cocktail Pop-Up at Hello Marjorie. Try different cocktails that represent food from the State Fair. Not sure if this will be tasteful, but sure will be a fun time.

Thursday is another Social Irrigation at the Botanical Garden, and the Old 97’s at Wooly’s. More music and events on the event calendar as well!

There’s definitely many music options for your Friday Night including Matt Wood’s Band at Marv’s Record Shop and Hex Girls at the Des Moines Social Club. There is also an Architectural Walking Tour at 5pm if you’re looking for something different to do before heading down for live music.

Saturday always calls for the Farmer’s Market. Then later that day B. Well will be playing at Wooly’s Saturday night and there’s also Kitten Bomb Comedy at Java Joe’s!

Have a relaxing Sunday and enjoy the Iowa Cubs baseball game!

Happy August!
