Hello!
The Roar Tour Summer 2013 arrives at the Adler Theatre this Saturday and Grace Potter & the Nocturnals will be ready to rock! Prepare yourself for a night of phenomenal music and see for yourself why USA Today considers Grace Potter to be "the best female rock singer in the country." While you're there, grab your tickets for the Headbanger's Burlesque Part Duex for July 20th!
After playing with bands such as Earth Wind & Fire, Little Feat, Sting, and more, the soul/R&B/funk band  Mingo Fishtraps will bring their groove to the River Music Experience tonight!  On Sunday, get your Americana/ Rock n' Roll fix when Lee Bains III & the Glory Fires take the stage. On Saturday, support local kids from the QC Rock Academy for their Concert 101. See hard work pay off as students rock out to some of their favorite songs they've been working on all week.
Head down to the Figge tonight to enjoy grilled burgers, brats, dogs, pork chops, chicken, and more from Chef Dave! Enjoy a view of the Mississippi while you feast on  your dinner and at 7, enjoy an art film from Art21! Nothing better than Dinner and a Movie to help wind down a summer day. On Saturday, take advantage of exploring all the Figge has to offer for FREE during the Pop! Goes the Figge Family Day.
Learn about the secrets of a great-grandmother sent east from Davenport to escape a family scandal when the German American Heritage Center presents The Quack's Daughter on Saturday. You won't want to miss this true story about Davenport's most daring Victorian college girl. On Sunday, treat the kids to a class just for them! The GAHC also presents a Fun with Photos Class for kids. Kids that attend the class will receive a free booklet of photo ideas and techniques!
Why use the same old cooking techniques every night when you can try something new? Join Bix Bistro on Tuesday for their cooking class and learn how to cook food sealed in airtight plastic bags! Guests will be involved in preparing the meals with the Sous-Vide cooking method while also enjoying wine pairings by Abraham Blair. Now's your chance to put your cooking skills to the test!
This Saturday marks the second Saturday of July...which means it's time for Bucktown's Second Saturday Series! Join the artists of Bucktown Center for the Arts for a day of artist demonstrations and fun. Hop from studio to studio to view a range of artistic styles and creativity!
See you downtown!
