Hello!
The Wallflowers Come one, come all, and come hungry to LeClaire Park this weekend for River Roots Live!  The Wallflowers, Shooter Jennings, Vintage Trouble, and Bodeans headline our awesome 17 band lineup! The award-winning Ribfest BBQ vendors open for lunch Friday starting at 11:00 a.m., and remember, admission is FREE before 5 p.m. and only $5 after 5:00 p.m. both Friday and Saturday.   For more background on the headliners, check out the QC-Times Go & Do section.  Visit the RRL Facebook page and RSVP to the FB event page while you're at it!
The music doesn't stop at LeClaire Park! Head to River Music Experience for RRL's Late night Show both Friday and Saturday after the fest.   Get down with Joy Avenue Media Society and Patio! Show your River Roots Live stamp for a discount! Shift to jazz mode on Sunday when West Music presents for Polyrhythms Third Sunday Jazz featuring BK Davis, Steinway Artist. Support RME at this unique Third Sunday Jazz by purchasing keys from the Steinway Family Boston grand piano.
Looking for a chance to try some new yoga poses or dance moves? You're in luck! Join the Women's Connection next Thursday at the RiverCenter for cocktails and healthy conversations featuring food and fitness panelists! Learn 3 Simple Ways to De-Stress Your Life through stress-reducing activities and samples of healthy foods. Don't forget to wear your comfortable clothes.
The Figge Art Museum will start the school year off right tonight by hosting Teacher Appreciation Night for this week's Thursdays at the Figge. Stick around for Dinner and a Movie afterwards and enjoy an art film from Art21! On Saturday, test your watercolor skills during the Watercolor Workshop. Learn basic brush stroke techniques, treatments to color mixing, and more during this educational workshop.
If you haven't heard by now, the Quad Cities' own Modern Woodmen Park is now USA Today's #1 Minor League Ballpark in the country! Thanks to all those who voted to make this a huge victory for the QC! Help celebrate the win by supporting the River Bandits this week when they take on the Burlington Bees and Cedar Rapids Kernels.
Take advantage of the season and hit up the Freight House Farmers Market this weekend, too.  There are plenty of fresh and local goods for everyone!
See you downtown!
