Fans of Green Day are in for a treat this week! Hear the story of three lifelong friends forced to choose between their dreams and the safety of suburbia during the Broadway smash-hit musical, American Idiot! Based on Green Day's Grammy Award-winning album, this unique musical is one you don't want to regret missing while it was in your own backyard.
Family fun, refreshments, gift shop discounts and more...all of this can be found at the German American Heritage Center this Sunday at their Open House! Now's your chance to see what the GAHC has to offer all for FREE! Here's an opportunity to also see images from GAHC's trip to Germany along with the exhibition of winning photos from the photography contest.
The Figge Art Museum is making room for new exhibits for the new year! With that said, be sure to head to the Figge before Sunday to see the New Deal for Illinois: The Federal Art Project Collection of Western Illinois Exhibit before it closes. While you're there, make a run through the 1934: A New Deal for Artists Exhibit, too, before it closes on Monday. Make sure you also mark your calendar for the next PechaKucha Night set for January 30.
Black Friday comes more than once a year at My Favorite Frame Shop. Find most in-house custom black frames on any full custom framing order at a discounted price every Friday for the month of January. Remember, MFFS also offers frame repair, stitch/fabric art work, shrink wrapping, and more!

fhfm Start 2014 off right by eating fresh and shopping local! See the various offerings of fresh vegetables, delicious baked goods, quality crafts, and more at the indoor Freight House Farmer's Market. You even have a chance to enjoy a massage from a licensed massage therapist while you're there. Make a day out of it by bringing the whole family and stopping at Antonella's or Me and Billy's for lunch afterward. Click here for a list of even more delicious places to try downtown!
Catch Jordan Danielsen at Rhythm City this weekend, and if you love wine and supporting the local music scene, mark your calendar to attend RME's annual Winter Wine Experience on January 18.  In the meantime, check out some QC talent at Winter Blues and Blues Cafe.   Since it's freezing out, you might as well do some ice skating at River's Edge while you're out!
See you downtown!
