Hello!

The gentle summer breeze may feel more like a blow-dryer pointed at your face right now, but fear not, we have plenty of ways for you to stay cool downtown this week.

IceIce skating is FREE during public skate times at River's Edge on Friday and Saturday, and skate rental is even free while supplies last!  The City has also declared the Figge, RiverCenter, and library as official "cooling centers."  That means admission to the Figge is FREE all day today and free until 5 p.m. on Friday!

ZeppelinWerner Zarnikow will host a presentation titled Count Ferdinand von Zeppelin and His Airships at the German American Heritage Center Sunday, and the first Trivia Night at Brady Street Pub will kick-off this evening.  Mark your calendar now for next Friday's Bucktown Bash too so you don't miss a glimpse of "The Kraken!" 
Dubtonic
River Music Experience has a very busy week ahead beginning with a fun show featuring a reggae/dub band hailing all the way from Jamaica, Dubtonic Kru! Earlier in the evening, Friday Live at 5 will feature Doublas & Tucker.

 

Blackberry SmokeBlackberry Smoke, one of the premiere southern rock bands in America, will be making an appearance at RME, too!  Having shared the stage with Zac Brown Band, ZZ Top, and Kid Rock, Blackberry Smoke is already making big waves in the music scene.  Watch their video! A tasty show by the Quad-Cities' own Bacon is slated for a gig at RME, as well.   

IconA discussion titled "What Makes an Icon?" will take place during Thursdays at the Figge, and be sure to take the museum's newest tour, too.  Check outFridays at the Figge to create a masterpiece of your own!  New docents are also being recruited this week.

Street Fest 2011Bix 7 and RAGBRAI weekend is almost here, and Street Fest presented by Wells Fargo will serve as the party binding the two huge events together!  Visit the Street Fest homepage for event details, and please considervolunteering for a beverage tent.  Volunteers must be 21 or older, and we're especially in need of volunteers for the 9PM - Midnight shift still. 

Mural 5The new mural at Iowa & 3rd Streets is now complete, and we couldn't be happier!  This beautiful piece of artwork was created by local teens in theQuad-City Arts Metro Youth Program.  We'd like to thank these amazing teens for completing their third mural project downtown!

Barrel HouseA wide range of construction projects are underway downtown from an expansion at Mac's and renovations at the Bayer Building, to upgrades at the LeClaire Park Bandshell and City Hall.  We've even got a new restaurant/pub opening soon on 2nd Street called Barrel House 211!  Downtown just keep growing!  Stay tune for more details.

See you downtown!
