A restaurant is great place to put Dan Kaercher, host of the IPTV program Iowa’s Simple Pleasures.
I spent a few days on the road with Dan for season two of ISP, including a couple of restaurants. (You can watch Season 1 by clicking here.)
We went to Rastrelli’s in Clinton where Dan made some sausage and pizza. We had a great time that night and ate our selves silly. When I was editing, all I could think about was bread, pizza and hot fudge sundae. That is a good thing about traveling with Dan, eating well. He must live on his treadmill when not on the road with us.
We also took a trip to the best tenderloin in Iowa at Goldie’s in Prairie City and even a visit to the Mississippi River town of LeClaire. The stop in LeClaire led us to Kernel Cody’s Popcorn Shoppe along the riverfront.
Dan and I also made a trip to Templeton and expose a secret. Ok, it is not that big of a secret, but it is where they bottle Templeton Rye. Back in July, I attended the Rock ‘n Rye event for part of the story.
For the rest of the week, I”ll be posting stories about those trips.
You too, can see a preview of the show during our Festival programming on Iowa Public Television. The preview show runs March 10th at 8:30 PM. I know part or all of my LeClaire piece will air that night.
Thank you for your support of IPTV and our programming.
