When we arrived in Des Moines we intended to stay at the casino in nearby Altoona. They had a really cool one-armed bandit.
But ugly signs and too many trucks forced us to move on to the Sam's Club in Des Moines. What a great spot! Right next to a bike trail along the river.
We went dancing that night at Miss Kitty's, a great honky-tonk.
The "disco ball" was a saddle.
It had a good dance floor, and the restrooms were clearly marked.
Inside was a stall for "real cowgirls." I couldn't figure it out. I don't have a picture of the men's room, but it featured a one-way mirror in front of the urinals so the guys could keep track of their women while they took care of business.
These people could really dance!
