Visiting Des Moines & Omaha this weekend - recommendations?

This weekend, a friend and I are going to spend 48 hours visiting Des Moines (Iowa), Omaha (Nebraska) and the places in-between. Do you have any recommendations for events this weekend we shouldn't miss? Or spots to visit? And any recommendation for the best steak restaurant along the route? Thanks!

Experience Des Moines for lovers

I want to get a wedding gift for a friend in the Clive/Des Moines, IA area. I'd love to give her and her new hubby an experience present (gift certificate to a restaurant or for a couples massage or for theater, etc.) of around $150.00. I don't live in Iowa and have never been there. What recommendations do you have for romantic restaurants, relaxing spas and wellness centers, innovative cultural institutions, quality theater? Other experience ideas appreciated.

Mother's Day Dinner in Des Moines?

My sister and I would like to take our mom out for dinner on Mother's Day. My sister is moving to Des Moines that day, and doesn't know anything about the area yet. My parents will be coming out to help with the moving, and I'll be making the trip as well, but the morning is going to be filled with driving a moving truck, so we'd like to do dinner. Any suggestions on a nice, interesting place to take her? We're open on cuisines.
