Think warm this weekend by helping the QC Parrot Heads celebrate their 10th Annual Havana Daydreamin' on Saturday! This year, the event supports the Honor Flight of the Quad Cities. Prepare yourself for a night of fun with live music from Ramajay Intercoastal, Boat Drunks, and Jim Hoehn.  Stop by the Adler Theatre beforehand to see the Quad City Symphony Orchestra Youth Ensemble perfom Side-By-Side earlier that day.
On Saturday, help Jim the Mule celebrate over a decade of bringing heart and soul to the music scene before they take an indefinite hiatus this winter. Hear a blend of country and rock & roll at the Jim the Mule Farewell Show at River Music Experience!  Tonight, catch ZZ Top's recent opener and one-of-a-kind trio, The Ben Miller Band! Tomorrow, participate in a night of music, art, dance, comedy, and many other talents during A D Good Time Volume 6.
 Speaking of farewells, if you have yet to see the Walter Haskell Hinton: Image Maker for Deere Exhibiton at the Figge, this weekend is your last chance. Peruse iconic works from the John Deere collection reflecting the importance of hard work and ingenuity before the exhibition closes on Sunday. Tonight, attend a fun, informal event that allows community members to share ideas and interests via pictures. With complimentary appetizers, a cash bar, and free admission, you won't want to miss this month's PechaKucha Night!
 Bucktown Center for the Arts first 2014 Final Friday is just around the corner. Enter the Poker Run and stay for the Opening Reception for MidCoast's exhibiting artists Pat Halverson & David Genac. Enter the Poker Run for a chance to win the grand prize Bucktown Basket worth over $100 with goodies including paintings, handmade cards, jewelry, wine and more! Enjoy light food and beverages, live music, a chance to meet the artists and view their work, and time to shop the galleries of Bucktown.
 Young professionals, mark your calendar for next month's Network @ Night. February's event will be held at Me & Billy. Meet new contacts, enjoy delicious food and drinks, and celebrate an evening of fun with other young professionals in the QC! Be sure to also note that the next Network @ Noon will be Tuesday, February 11.
 There's been a lot of good news downtown lately!  2.5 Million was raised for the new YMCA Early Learning Center!  Did you catch the QC-Times article about the new Wells Fargo apartments? There's a great related article depicting the artistic masterpiece inside the lobby of the building, too.  Hotel Blackhawk won yet another Forbes Travel Award, and Icestravaganza was a resounding success.  Visit our website for more good news!
See you downtown!
