Hello!

Calling all bride-to-be's! Are you looking to plan the perfect wedding but unsure of where to start? Let the Davenport Jaycees Bridal Expo help you plan the wedding of your dreams. Venture to the RiverCenter this weekend to peruse over 150 vendors looking to help you plan your dream wedding. Whether you're looking for a traditional wedding or one with the latest trends, this is the place to start.

The Figge has much planned this week in light of their newest exhibition- Katja Loher: Videoplanet - Orchestra.  On Saturday, enjoy artwork featuring a multi-sensory environment with kaleidoscopic video works projected on weather balloons and within glass spheres!  Of course, the Figge always has plenty ofeducational and family programming, too.  Make sure to check out their full calendar to see what's coming up.

Educate yourself this week on seeds, bees, and probiotics at the Quad Cities Food Hub! Share pieces of your own seed collection or gather seeds from experts at the Seed Exchange on Saturday. Stick around afterward to learn about Basics in Beekeeping. Topics will include basic bee biology, tools and equipment for beekeeping, and honey taste testing! On Wednesday, learn about the benefits of probiotics and how to make your own at home during theProbiotic Class.

Explore life on a century farm through objects, images, and stories of a German American farm family when the Kautz Farms: A Living Legacy Exhibition opens at the German American Heritage Center this weekend. While you're there, be sure to delve into the Hinges & Hearts: The World of Antique Metal & Mechanical Dolls Exhibit, too. Find out what Frankenstein, The Golem, Thomas Edison, and Marie Antoinette all have in common. On Sunday, hear about the joy and preparation of finding ancestors in Germany during Travelogues- an event that showcases the first travel adventure from Summer 2013.

With the end of January quickly approaching, it's time to start thinking about Valentine's Day reservations! Treat that special someone to a delicious dinner paired with a beautiful view of the Mississippi at the Best Minor League Ballpark in America during Modern Woodmen Park's Valentine's Day Dinner. Don't forget to have a look at Valentine's Day offerings at Hotel Blackhawk while you're at it, like their "Ode to Love" Dinner Package or their Valentine's Prix Fixe.

We'd like to welcome another new business to the Downtown Davenport family! Falbo Bros Pizzeria has officially opened! With a full menu sure to please even the pickiest of eaters, choose from a variety of specialty pizzas, super salads, hot subs, and more. Afraid you can't finish a whole pizza by yourself? Have no fear, simply order pizza by the slice instead. Do yourself a favor and stop in to try a slice today!
