lifestylesLadies, make your way out to the RiverCenter this weekend to get health and lifestyle tips from Dolvett Quince of The Biggest Loser at the 2013 KWQC-HD 6 Women's Health & Lifestyle Fair.

While you're there, show off your pipes and tryout to be a National Anthem singer this season as well!

 

Gabriel Iglesias will bring his Stand-Up Revolution Tour to the Adler Theatre on March 7! With a mixture of storytelling, parodies, characters and sound effects, Iglesias brings all his personal experiences to life. Gabriel's unique and animated comedy style has made him popular among fans of all ages.

 

wine Looking for an evening out to enjoy a mix of contemporary American cuisine with classic French cuisine? Indulge in the 5 Course Wine Dinner at the Bix tonight! You can even take home recipes from the dinner so you can make the dishes at home.
