Hello!
car show

Attention all car-lovers! You're in for a treat this weekend when the 19th Annual Iowa/Illinois Regional Auto Show rolls in to the RiverCenter.

Mark your calendar and plan to bring down the family for this great event, too!

 

Enjoy an evening full of music, food, and romance at the Quad City Symphony Orchestra's second annual Valentine's Gala.  Guests can enjoy hosted beer and wine, appetizers, and a silent auction before dinner.  The festivities then move to the nearby Adler Theatre where the Quad City Symphony Orchestra will perform symphonic dances from Bernstein and Tchaikovsky to swing-era favorites featuring performers from Five by Design.

 

rajun cajun The taste of New Orleans will make its way to the Figge Art Museum during their Mardi Gras Rajun Cajun Fest! Local chefs will be set up in the lobby where guests can sample Cajun creations from each chef! If you're looking for some Cajun music to keep the theme going, head to the River Music Experience Sunday for to see BeauSoliel Avec Michael Doucet perform.

dancersSee how Germany celebrate's an event similar to Mardi Gras by heading over to the German American Heritage Center open house this Sunday. Enjoy music and free admission during the German Festival of Fasching. Check out the grand opening of the newest GAHC exhibit: Eye of the Beholder: Photography of Bradley W. Schaupp for free, too.

Then indulge in a 4 Course Valentine's Dinner at Bix. Enjoy a menu full of exquisite cuisine! Also, if you're looking to enjoy another four-course gourmet dinner, don't forget to sign up for a Valentine's Day Dinner at Modern Woodmen Park on February 14th, 15th, or 16th.

 

nadasRiver Music Experience will host a wide array of shows this weekend featuring folk music during the Chicago Farmer Album Release Show, rock during The Nadas CD Release Show, and Americana when Levi Lowrey takes the stage. Register for QC ACT Session 1: Sell It on Saturday and learn some tips from from keynote speaker Sean Moeller of Daytrotter.  The workshop will give you a chance to  to network with other artists, too.

 

50 Shades of Clay Love the movie Ghost?  How about making pottery?  There's still time to register for the cleverly titled Fifty Shades of Clay!  This unique Valentine's event for couples will take place at Bucktown on Saturday, February 16.
