The Des Moines Social Club has hired Mickey Davis as event manager. Davis will assist in expanding the Des Moines Social Club's event offerings and oversee existing programming as it prepares for future events in its new venue at the former Des Moines Fire Department headquarters downtown. A Greater Des Moines "boomerang," Davis spent the last few years in St. Paul, Minn., studying at Macalester College. He previously worked with the 80/35 music festival and the Des Moines Arts Festival. His goal is to "help create a scene where my moving back right after school to live here is no longer an exception to the rule," he said in a release.
