Hello!
Start your weekend off with some live outdoor music, refreshing drinks, and good company when River Music Experience kicks off Friday Live at 5! Sponsored by TAG Communications, this week's event features the Ellis Kell Band. On Saturday, RME gives you an excuse to wear your PJ's out of the house during their Dress Up and Dance Series: Pajama Jam! Enjoy contests, giveaways, and live music by Have Your Cake and The Candymakers.  Tonight, catch a great all female act visting from Austin, The Trishas.  On Wednesday, RME will host a phenomenal up and coming musician from St. Louis, Pokey Lafarge.
The Figge has activities for all crowds this weekend! Middle school students can explore the drawing of pop art during the Art in the Middle workshops. For the older crowd, enjoy fun studio art activities paired with a glass of wine and light hors d'oeuvres during Wine & Art tonight. There's even a chance to bond with the whole family by heading to the new Beyond the Classroom exhibit or participating in tonight's interactive Zumba Fitness class.
Awarding more than $50,000 each year in scholarships, the Miss Iowa Scholarship Program continues to be a great asset for the state.   Come show your support at the Adler Theatre this Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. Also, don't forget that tickets for the July 13th  Grace Potter & the Nocturnals show are still on sale.  Get 'em while they last!
With June already here, Father's Day is right around the corner! In need of a unique way of celebrating the holiday? Join the Quad Cities River Bandits on Sunday, June 16th, as they host pre-game catch in the outfield and their second annual Father's Day Cookout on the Sky Deck! This day not only features an all-you-can-eat buffet, but giveaways and prizes, too. Reservations must be made by June 10.
Don't miss the FREE concerts along the Mississippi River this summer during Music on the Levee at LeClaire Park. Wind down this weekend to the tunes of Josh Duffee & His Graystone Monarchs while enjoying refreshments. Speaking of music in the park, keep your eyes open for this year's River Roots Live line-up that we'll be announcing June 13th! Like our brand new
River Roots Live Facebook Page and be the first to hear the news.
We're excited to announce a new retail business!  If you're looking for a sweet fix, stop by Chocolate Manor located at 110 E. 2nd St. across from the Radisson!  With treats like gourmet chocolates, cupcakes, toffee, and even GELATO, this local chocolate shop is sure to impress. While you're there, ask about their gift baskets, dessert bars, and catering options. Chocolate Manor is already open, but keep an eye out in upcoming newsletters for the date of their official grand opening.
See you downtown!
