We had a blast celebrating New Year's Eve downtown, and we're excited to welcome 2012 with open arms! The Adler is kicking January off with the Central High School Show Choir Dinner Theater on Saturday. Grab tickets at the Adler for next week's performance by Mike Epps & Friends, too.
Time is running out to see the inspiring Turn of the Century Posters Exhibit at the Figge Art Museum, and the College Invitational Exhibit is closing on Sunday, as well. You can also enjoy a special guided tour of the UIMA collection on Sunday, so make sure you plan to relax and learn a little at the Figge this weekend.
From a speed skating competition to kids activities, there's something for the whole family during the Winter Celebration at River's Edge on Sunday. This FREE event might be a great way to follow up your visit to the Figge!
Construction is progressing on the the first two components of the Food Hub! Read this QC-Times article and learn more about the upcoming Fresh Deli by Nostalgia Farms and Front Street Brewery expansion. Remember to stop by the Freight House Farmers Market on Saturday, too.
The White Rose Exhibit opens Saturday at the German American Heritage Center. This national exhibit explores one of of Germany's most famous civilian resistance groups; don't miss your chance to see it while it's in the QC.
There are plenty of free performances at River Music Experience this week including shows by Retro Ron, River Prairie Minstrels, Mike Cochrane, Steve Couch, and Nick Vasquez. An all-ages show featuring E11Eventh Hour is only $5, and of course, you can always strut your own stuff during Open Mic Night.
Lee Blackmon and Andy Harris are providing even more free music at Rhythm City, and if you plan on watching the NFL playoffs this weekend, bring your buddies downtown and enjoy the game at one of our bars and pubs.
Stay tuned for more details next week on the upcoming Boat & Vacation Show and RME's Winter Wine Experience!
See you downtown!
