Downtown Davenport is loaded with events this week, but first, we'd like to open with some big news.  Restoration St. Louis has begun its $4.5M renovation of the historic Renwick Building!  Eighteen beautiful market-rate apartments and new commercial space are on the way, and we couldn't be more excited.

The good news doesn't end there, because Downtown Central Perk just celebrated its grand opening in the historic Bayer Building at 226 West 3rd Street!  The coffe shop features vegetarian and vegan entrees, as well as direct trade coffees and more. 

The coffee shop is a major component of the Bayer Building's ongoing restoration, that once completed, will also boast a restored façade and additional market-rate apartments.  Check out our photo album and this QC-Times article, too.
Bridal Expo
If you're planning a wedding, don't miss the Jaycees Bridal Expo at the RiverCenter this weekend!  Next door, the Tribute National Talent Contest will be in full swing at the Adler Theatre.

Celebrate our local artistic and musical talent during the Augustana Sights & Sounds Final Friday event at Bucktown!  This unique photography exhibit will make for a special night, and if you're still not familiar with Final Friday, check out this video made by our friends at Star Dog Gallery.

River Roots Live veterans, The Giving Tree Band, are headlining a gig at River Music Experience!  Local favorite Tim Stop will also be performing at RME, and fans of electro-funk should grab tickets now to see Eliot Lipp on Wednesday.  There are a whopping eight FREE events this week at RME!  Bring the family down to give the Community Drum Circle a try, too.

You've probably heard of Carnival in Rio and Mardi Gras in New Orleans, but are you familiar with Fasching and Karneval?  Learn all about these fascinating events at the German American Heritage Center, and mark your calendar to catch their next showing of The White Rose film, as well.

Support our youth by attending the Young Artist Exhibit opening at the Figge, and if you're in the mood for a sporting event, attend a hockey game at River's Edge.  Last, but not least, don't forget that you can still shop for groceries at the Freight House Farmers Market all winter long indoors.

See you downtown!

Due to overwhelming demand!! Additional Film Showings Available! PDF Print E-mail

The German American Heritage Center and the Jewish Federation of the Quad Cities are happy to announce additional showings of companion films to the current "White Rose" Exhibit at GAHC. We had a full house on Sunday, Jan.29 and apologize to those who had to be turned away! Please try to join us for the following opportunities:

On Feb 4th at 4pm the film, “The White Rose” will be re-shown at the Figge Art Museum in the John Deere Auditorium. The Figge is located at 225 W. 2nd St. Davenport, Ia. Admission is $5 or free for students with I.D.

During the Second World War, a small group of students at the University of Munich begin to question the decisions of Germany's Nazi government. The students’ form a resistance cell
which they name the "White Rose" and secretly distribute newsletters to the public. At first small in numbers and fearful of discovery, the White Rose begins to gain massive support after a Nazi Gauleiter nearly incites a student riot after a provocative speech. At this point, the matter is taken over by the German Gestapo, who pledges to hunt down and destroy the members of the White Rose.

Lena Stolze stars in this acclaimed feature film based on the true story of five German students- -Sophie Scholl, Hans Scholl, Willi Graf, Christoph Probst, Alexander Schmorell--and their
professor Kurt Huber who, as the White Rose, protested the Nazi regime.

On February 5th at 1pm and at 4pm, the film, “Sophie Scholl: The Final Days” will be shown at the Figge Art Museum in the John Deere Auditorium. The Figge is located at 225 W. 2nd St. Davenport, IA. Admission for the film is $5 or free for students with I.D.

2005 Academy Award Nominee for Best Foreign language Film, Sophie Scholl: The Final Days is the true story of Germanys most famous anti-Nazi heroine brought to thrilling dramatic life. Sophie Scholl stars Julia Jentsch in a luminous performance as the fearless activist of the underground student resistance group, The White Rose.

Using historical records of her incarceration, the film re-creates the last six days of Sophie Scholl's life: a journey from arrest to interrogation, trial and sentence in 1943 Munich. Unwavering in her convictions and loyalty to her comrades, her cross-examination by the Gestapo quickly escalates into a searing test of wills as Scholl delivers a passionate call to freedom and personal responsibility that is both haunting and timeless. -IMDB review

This film is shown in conjunction with the exhibit The White Rose at the German American Heritage Center located at 712 W. 2nd St. Davenport, IA. Sponsored by GAHC, The Jewish Federation of the Quad Cities and the German Consulate of Chicago, Rauch Family Foundation II, Doris and Victor Day Foundation, and the Rock Island Community Foundation.

 
DubStar Recreates ‘Minute To Win It’ Game Show to Benefit Quad Cities Autism Center PDF Print E-mail

Davenport, IA February 17, 2012 – Local fundraising group DubStar will recreate the television magic of the hit NBC game show, ‘Minute To Win It’ to support the Quad Cities Autism Center, with their second annual event titled DubStar Presents: Minute 2 Win It. The event will take place Feb 17 at 8:00pm, live from The Pub (4320 Brady Street - Davenport) and will again be hosted by local comedian, Brandon Gale.


DubStar is hoping to capitalize on the success of 2011 event, that gained the attention on NBC producers, who asked the pair to apply to be contestants and submit a highlight video to possibly be used on the show. For the Feb 17 event, DubStar has added more games, more prizes, and a few new elements, including team challenges to the show.

 

“Last year was so much fun, and such a tremendous success.” siad returning host, Brandon Gale. “The only complaint was that not everyone could play, so we added five more games and two team challenges,” Gale added. “At times like these, when funds are tight, this is a great way to get involved and help an amazing cause. In exchange for your support, our service is to offer you a night of fun and fabulous prizes.”

 

The Quad Cities Autism Center (QCAC) was founded in October of 2005 as a 501 (C)3 non-profit organization that delivers direct instruction and natural environment teaching to children affected by Autism. The Quad Cities Autism Center exists to provide education, guidance and resources to parents and children affected by Autism and to offer one to one instruction to develop and enhance the lives of our children by giving them New Hope and a brighter future.

 

DubStar is an amateur fundraising group founded in 2008 by Tony Boyer and Chris Starman. DubStar’s mission is to make a positive impact, either financially or through awareness, on deserving charities or groups, through fun and unique ways; “Party With A Purpose”. Additional information can be found at the DubStar website, www.facebook.com/DubStarQC.
