Hello!
Chair AffairPull up a chair for the Figge's gala event, "A Chair Affair," which is celebrating the opening of a new exhibit, The Art of Seating: 200 Years of American Chair Design. This unique fundraiser will feature live music, heavy hors d'oeuvres, and more!  Participate in an interesting Art Talk duringThursdays at the Figge tonight, and don't miss the Downtown Davenport Architecture Tour on Wednesday.

Miss IowaThe Miss Iowa & Miss Teen Scholarship Pageant will keep the Adler Theatre busy throughout the weekend, and the River Bandits begin another homestretch tonight at Modern Woodmen Park.  Seats for next week's performance by John Prine and Iris DeMent at the Adler won't last forever, so buy your tickets now!

BowlsGet a sneak peek of downtown's newest restaurant!  Bowls: Urban Eats is now open at the corner of 3rd & Brady, and their delicious noodle, rice and salad combinations will make your mouth water.  Bowls will release an expanded menu with new hours upon its grand opening later this summer, but stop in now and be among the first to try it out!

QC RollersFlat track roller derby action will be in full force Saturday when the QC Rollers arrive at the RiverCenter for another bout, and we recommended participating in a drop-in hockey or soccer game at River's Edge if you'd like to get involved in your own athletic competition. Read the turf and ice schedules and discover dozens of the events at River's Edge!

Lipbone
Inventive singer/songwriter Lipbone Redding is hosting a FREEworkshop and show at River Music Experience.  Redding is known for his ability to use his vocals to sound exactly like a trombone; the phenomenon must be seen live to be truly appreciated! RME is providing multiple FREE concerts this week including Friday Live at 5 featuring OrangadangJason ParchertThe Madison Letter, andSurface Tension.  Stop in for a Live Lunch session or Songwriters in the Round this week, as well.

Manny LopezThe Manny Lopez Big Band will headline Music on the Levee on the LeClaire Park band shell on Sunday, but if you'd rather discuss a good science fiction book than dance on the riverfront, check out DAGOBAH at the library.  Don't forget to shop for fresh and local goods at the Freight House Farmers MarketTuesday and Saturday, too!

QC-Times Photo QuiltA new exhibit regarding German Influences in the Civil War at the German American Heritage Center will be highlighted by a Quilts of the Civil Warpresentation on Sunday.  Read this great Quad-City Times article for more details.

Parking meter removal is on the horizon and the City is hosting two public meetings next week regarding the changes coming to downtown parking ordinances, signage, etc. Both meetings will be held Thursday, June 16.  The first meeting will be at 3 p.m. at NewVentures (331 W. 3rd Street), and the second will be held at 6 p.m. at City Hall.

See you downtown!
