Hello!
With Christmas less than a week away, we'd like to wish all of you safe and happy holidays! Celebrate the holidays the right way and attend the special 30th anniversary screening of "A Christmas Story" this Saturday at the Adler Theatre. You even have a chance to meet Ralphie's little brother, Ian Petrella! Grab your tickets for the show tonight when you head out to see the pop quartet, Under the Streetlamp.

Get your last minute holiday shopping done downtown! Check out what Bucktown Center for the Arts has to offer at their Final Friday: Last Minute Sales Event! Purchase a hand painted wine glass and enjoy samples of various wines as you peruse galleries of artwork and handcrafted gifts. This Final Friday also features free gift wrapping, massage chair demonstrations, hair and make up demonstrations, and more!

Make it a last minute shopping spree and find unique gifts all throughout downtown. Shop Abernathy's to find one of a kind vintage home decor or clothing. Pamper a friend or family member with a giftcard from Spa Luce.  You can even give a gift of locally brewed beers from Great River Brewery. The options are endless when you shop local!

Looking for a way to entertain the kids this weekend? Hop on over to River Music Experience on Saturday for Kidz Days at RME featuring Steve Couch. With the mission to help kids grow up strong and smart, Couch will perform songs of diversity, friendship, exercise, and more! Later on, enjoy a free mandolin and guitar performance by Reid Brooks.

If you're still in need of some New Year's Eve plans, see what Downtown Davenport businesses have to offer! Ring in 2014 with Me & Billy's and enjoy a cocktail hour & dinner from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. with live music by Tim Stop. Then head back at 8 p.m. for an all you can eat Fiesta Buffet, drink specials, a champagne toast, DJ Twisted Mic, and fun! Be sure to get your ticket before Friday to take advantage of the $50 early bird special!
See you downtown!
