Think your family is the weirdest of them all? Think again when The Addams Family comes to life at the Adler Theatre on Tuesday!  This new musical comedy tells the story of the ultimate princess of darkness as she falls in love with a smart, young man who, with his family, heads to the Addams' house for a nice dinner. Until then, support dancers of all genres when the StarQuest Dance Competition takes place at the Adler this weekend.
 Car fanatics are in for a treat this weekend! Explore the cars of tomorrow, a collection of high-end luxury vehicles, and more this at the RiverCenter for the 2014 Iowa-Illinois Regional Auto Show. With face painting, balloon characters, a live petting zoo, and a chance to meet Spongebob Squarepants, there's plenty of fun for the whole family.   Also, the HAVLife Martini Shakeoff is only a week away. Be sure to get your tickets for a night of live entertainment, appetizers, and delicious martinis before they sell out!
 There's plenty of hustle and bustle at River Music Experience to keep you busy this weekend! After appearing on the CBS Sunday Morning Show and touring with John Mellencamp, Griffin House brings his musical talent to the Redstone Room tonight. For those rock 'n' roll lovers, you won't want to miss The Neverly Brothers: Buddy to the Beatles. Consider it a night to reminisce on all of your favorite hits. Don't forget The Curtis Hawkins Band brings their original music to the Redstone Room on Friday, too. Learn more about how RME is educating local kids in this great feature article with Bret Dale.
 Quilts! Quilts! Quilts! With all of this snow we've seen, there's no better time to honor the warmth of a quilt. View a display of quilts from the Mississippi Valley Quilters Guild in the Figge Art Museum lobby tonight. Stick around for Thursdays at the Figge for presentations on art-quilting with an emphasis on quilting techniques and live demonstrations. Sign up for the Art and Life in Africa Trip while you're there.   Check out the Kids Design Glass exhibit as well; it's inspiring!
 Interested in learning new things this year?  Learn the fundamental building blocks of guitar playing at RME during Group Guitar 101. If you're more interested in learning about the recording process, participate in the Recording & Audio Engineering Workshop aimed at easing newcomers to the field of recording.   Or head to the Figge Art Museum to explore a variety of acrylic painting techniques during the Acrylic Painting for Beginners class. You even have a chance to brush up on your drawing skills during their Figure Drawing Class.

The first RiverVision Update Workshop was a success! Thanks to all those who came out to share ideas and conversation. In case you missed the first, mark your calendar for the RiverVision Public Workshop #2 taking place Thursday, February 13 at noon and 6 p.m.  Attend one or both meetings to make sure your voice is heard.  Your input on the future of our riverfront is important!
Have artwork or photos you've been meaning to hang on the wall?  Stop by My Favorite Frame Shop at  320 East 3rd St., Monday through Friday 10 a.m.- 5 p.m. and Saturday by appointment. They can take care of all of you framing needs with daily discounts on all full custom framing orders!
See you downtown!
