Play on words in Siouxland, Anthon

13 Jan

While visiting the small community of Anthon, Iowa recently I saw a sign over a bar that made me smile. A patron stepped outside and told me about another one just down the block and so I visited it too. I like word plays. Maybe one of the few things I took away from my study of English in college.

I hope I might find some others as I drive about the Siouxland area. Capitalizing on a name is good for businesses and the area. Hopefully it will help people remember.
