Hoopla: A new publication shares the passion for the Cedar Rapids/Iowa City corridor

I recently stumbled across a new publication created by, and for, young professionals – Hoopla.

Hoopla isn’t about professional journalism. It isn’t about us telling you what’s cool. You know what’s hot. So tell us what rocks, where the coolest place to eat is, who makes the meanest martini.

The magazine appears to have been started by some fresh, young corridor lovers that want to help get the word out about what makes the corridor so cool. Since that’s also what we’re trying to do here at Discover the Corridor, I am excited to have another group out there telling the “why it’s great to live here” story!

According to their Web site, the magazine helps readers find out what’s going on in Iowa City, Cedar Rapids and everywhere in between.

The magazine’s editor, Carly Weber is originally from Alaska and provides unique insight into what makes the Corridor so appealing. Carly and her team cover area nightlife, provide restaurant and book reviews, and profile local professionals. The publication includes a bar guide showcasing north and south corridor watering holes and their upcoming events and specials, as well as a huge events calendar.

I’ve lived in larger metro areas before and always found their community magazines fun to read. It made me feel more like a “local” – knowing where to go out on the weekend and what shows were coming to the area in the next few months. It’s about time the corridor had such a publication! Good job, guys!

So get in the know and pick up your copy today. I found mine at Casey’s – but if you can’t put your hands on one, there is a digital version on their Web site.
