The Marco’s Grilled Cheese cart opened for business in May of 2000. Started by local UI college students Mark Paterno & Pete Johnson, Marco’s quickly grew to become a popular late night stop for college students and local Iowa City residents in the Iowa City Ped Mall.
After 22 years of business, Marco’s Grilled Cheese has become a must stop for after-hours bar goers, nostalgic visiting for alumni and Iowa City locals alike.

Experience Mi Casa, Your Casa 2.0 in Iowa CityJune 10 - July 10th

The Mi Casa, Your Casa 2.0 red frames, each in the shape of a small house, set alongside one another will be placed in three main areas of the pedestrian mall. Inside each “casa”, there is a swing and a ring of lights lining the bottom. When the house is empty, the lights glow dimly to welcome the next visitor. Once someone steps inside, the lights release a more powerful glow, indicating that someone is home.
