Hello!
Headlining our lineup of events this week is the IA/IL Regional Auto Show, which features everything from the hottest new cars to a variety of family activities.  Sunday is Family Day, so bring the kids to enjoy a bounce houses, a Niabi Zoo exhibit, and more.

Rodney C Tonight, comedian and songwriter Rodney Carrington is performing live at the Adler Theatre!  If you'd prefer an evening of symphonic music, don't miss the QCSO Masterworks Series at the theater Saturday.  Tickets to either show would make a great early Valentines Day gift!

The iconic Leon Redbone is returning to the QC this week for an intimate concert at River Music Experience!  RME is also hosting performances by
The Damn Choir & American Dust
, Casual Affair, QC Kix Band, and Chris Colson.  Area musicians should also take advantage of Songwriters in the Round, Acoustic Music Club, and the Open Mic Contest

Tell your friends who love live theater to check out The White Rose Play at the German American Heritage Center.  Thursdays at the Figge is back with a special Black History Month Talk, and consider joining a Sunday tour or Figure Drawing Class during your next visit to the museum.

The Whoozdads will be playing their crowd pleasing tunes this weekend at Rhythm City, and stop by the casino later to enjoy a free Cooking Show or live music by Jordan Danielsen.  Remember to pay a visit to the Freight House Farmers Market Tuesday or Saturday to find fresh local goods, too.
