Though the river is still at flood stage, revised plans are moving forward for the Mississippi Valley Blues Festival!  Blues Fest will be moving to accommodate for the high water. Stay tuned to our Facebook page for more details as they are announced. Similarly, an announcement regarding revised plans for Red White & Boom will be coming no later than early next week.

 

 Quite a mix of things await you this weekend at River Music Experience! Sing your heart out solo or with a friend or two tonight during Falbos Karaoke Night. Let Modern Mythology do the singing tomorrow night at Friday Live at 5. On Saturday, find your rhythm and beat by participating in the monthly Community Drum Circle. Keep in mind G. Love & Special Sauce perform in the Redstone Room next Thursday, and RME is closed Friday for 4th of July.

 

 Venture outside and enjoy the summer weather by starting your Saturday off at the Freight House Farmer's Market. Find tons of unique, local treats, veggies, crafts, herbs, and more all in one spot. Have the kids bring a white t-shirt to decorate on Saturday with red and blue paint for a fireworks theme. The QC Food Hub will also host a Composting 101 class for all of those gardeners out there!

 

 Cookies, cinnamon rolls, scones, cakes, cupcakes, poptarts, pies, and MUCH more...where might you find these scrumptious sweets? Oh So Sweet by Tiphanie, of course! Stop by and welcome our newest addition to downtown and enjoy a modern twist on vintage recipes.  Trust us, folks, you won't regret it!

 

 Help celebrate the second anniversary of Boho Chic Fine Art Gallery in Bucktown Center for the Arts on Friday. Head on over and take advantage of 20% off anniversary pricing. From art created from clay, paint, fabric, photography, and more, here's your chance to find a one-of-a-kind gift while supporting local arts. Cake will also be provided!

 

 Summer calls for good times with good tunes. Find yourself a new CD, record, or cassette at Ragged Records to jam out to this summer. Open from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday, make sure you stop in and check out their collection! While you're in the area, stop by Abernathy's and pick up a unique summer outfit- jewelry, shoes, perfume, and all.

 

We'll be celebrating the historic Democrat Lofts ribbon cutting later this afternoon!  If you're looking for an amazing apartment downtown, be sure to check out the website and get a great room while you still can.

 

See you downtown!
