There’s crosswalks, sidewalks, and a healthy selection of windows and stores to cruise on foot. Within this zone, you’ll also find the Center Street Market, a sprawling, one-story building that holds a bevy of smaller operations.  And among those operations is a […]

Libby Lou’s is a newish joint on the Indianola strip, just spitting distance from the immortal Studio 35. Of course in 2020, there is no “spitting distance,” as everyone is masked. Spitting is distasteful anyway.   Sitting in an older building, Libby Lou’s is homespun as opposed to sleek.
