Hello!
St. Pats We had a ton of fun during St. Patrick's Day weekend, and with a little help from some beautiful weather, downtown was completely packed on Saturday!  Check out our photo album, and thanks for choosing to celebrate the holiday with us.

A Broadway production of Damn Yankees at the Adler Theatre headlines our events this week!  With 7 Tony Awards under its belt, this is one musical you don't want to miss.  Buy tickets and reserve your seat today.

See one of the world's biggest celebrity chefs at the RiverCenter during Cooking Up A Conversation with Curtis Stone Friday!  The QC Rollers will fill the Great Hall for Dropkick Derby on Saturday, and the Mother Son Formal will take place in the Mississippi Hall on Sunday.  Don't forget the Big Boyz Toy Show is coming up on the 31st at the RiverCenter, too! 

Major League Eating returns to Rhythm City Saturday for the 3rd Annual World Catfish Eating Contest!  Will Pat "Deep Dish" Bertoletti keep the world record?  Only time will tell.  If you'd prefer to make your own dish, remember to visit the Freight House Farmers Market Tuesday or Saturday for fresh and local goods.

If you're a fan of Hip-Hop, don't miss the increasingly popular Mac Lethal live tonight at River Music Experience!  On Friday, Indie/Folk/Pop outfit Joy Kills Sorrow will take the RME stage and tickets are only $5!  If you love Southern Rock and Soul, the Uncle Lucius show on Tuesday will be right up your alley.  Additional programs and events at RME this week include the Ragaman CD Release Show, Mandolin Junction, and Live Lunch.

Sunday, March 25 is your last chance to see Jackson Pollock's world famous Mural right in your own backyard!  If you've still not seen this incredible work of art, we strongly suggest you take a moment this week visit the Figge Art Museum!  Check out Thursday at the Figge or an Art Class, as well.

Help support Ballet Quad Cities by attending Tutu Fabulous in the Gold Room at Hotel Blackhawk!  This unique fundraiser features wine tasting, fashion and dancing.  If you're looking for more free live music this week, catch Adam Beck and River City 6 at Rhythm City. 

See you downtown!
