    Hello!
    We're excited to celebrate the opening of not one, but TWO new downtown businesses this week! Treat your taste buds to something new when Me & Billy Kitchen and Bar opens on Monday!

    Show your support for our veterans at the Annual Veterans Day Parade on Monday. The parade begins at 10 a.m. at the corner of 4th and Western, and the ceremonies will begin at 11 a.m. Afterward, make your way to the Adler Theatre for the Genesis Veterans Day Films Event.  See two inspirational films and take an opportunity to hear from one of the filmmakers! All activities are FREE to military veterans. We'd like to also thank Riverboat Development Authority for being a sponsor of this great event.

    From musicals to mediums, the Adler Theatre is home to an assortment of great events this week! Discover if Princess Winnifred finds her happily-ever-after when Davenport Central High School presents Once Upon a Mattress. If you're heading to the Sunday showing, arrive early to participate in the Royal Tea Party! On Tuesday, star of the hit TLC show, Long Island Medium, Theresa Caputo heads to the Adler to give live readings and share stories of her psychic gifts.
