Westport has turned into a real armpit since the tourney moved downtown .
That is false. The bar/restaurant streets of Westport are thriving and doing well. There is a thai restaurant that was featured on the Food Network not long ago. Kelly's, Harpos, and the cigar store are always busy. Westport is a fairly large area and using a blanket statement saying it is an armpit or unsafe is unfair. It's not new, trendy, and "douchy" like the Power and Light is. I go there quite often and have never seen anything out of the ordinary.
My roomate, my friend who goes to Iowa who is a lifelong ISU fan (falls under the category of "Iowa is a better party school") and I will be heading down Thursday after my test. Can't wait! I feel as if I'll be enjoying some Saturday Big 12 tourney basketball!
