We took a bit of grief over our last short list of Cedar Rapids dive bars, and it's easy to understand why. Being labeled a dive bar is nothing to be ashamed of. In fact, its a badge of honor in Iowa.

But some misunderstood. They thought we were being disrespectful. Odd, because others were pissed that they were left off the list!

So here are five more places to hunker down in Cedar Rapids during this weekend's snowstorm. Call them what you will - dive bar, juke-joint, hole-in-the-wall, whatever....

...if you got cold beer, a TV and jukebox, maybe some hot food, you can ride the storm out in one of the neighborhood taverns where no one worries about the bad weather.
