Hello!
Bix 7 Weekend is upon us!  Vendors, festival foods and drinks, and music galore await you during the  42nd Annual Street Fest! Presented by Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center, Street Fest will be full of firefighter water fights and family activities on 2nd Street, too.   Be sure to download our Bix 7 Weekend Street Closure Map, and remember to park in the ramps; it's easy, cheap, and close to main events.
Bix 7
Of course, the Quad-City Times Bix 7 is the reason for the season, and we can't wait to see thousands of people running up Brady Street again!  For those of you running the Bix, Jr Bix, or Quick Bix, registration and packet-pick-up will take place at the Orthopedic Specialists Sports and Wellness Expo at the RiverCenter tonight and Friday. Prepare yourself for Saturday's race Friday night at the Genesis Carb It Up Pre-Bix Pasta Dinner, too.
Get your art fix this week during Bucktown's BASH! Kick off the celebration for Bucktown Center for the Arts' 8th Anniversary on Friday with a Wine Walk. Get your very own beautifully hand-painted wine glass and five free wine tastings for only $10!  The Figge Art Museum is also offering $2 admission this weekend in celebration of Street Fest.
Barrel House Bix Bash Yet another bash is taking place right next door to Bucktown during the 2nd Annual Barrel House Bix Bash!  The outdoor party lasts from Friday through Saturday and they'll be five bands, food, and plenty of fun.  On Saturday, hop across the street to Great River Brewery and enjoy their Golden Ale and Bix Copper Can Release Party, too.
3rd Street On Friday, Mac's Tavern will feature Grinder's Spaghetti and WQAD's Jason Fechner will also be guest bartending!  Outside on 3rd Street, Mac's, Kilkenny's, and Carriage Haus will be hosting FREE live music all weekend featuring Just Chords, Wicked Liz, North of 40, and more. Kilkenny's is hosting a bags tournament, too!  Don't forget that the Freight House Farmers Market is OPEN for business this Saturday morning, as well.
The band battles continue at River Music Experience this weekend. On Friday, help decide the winner of Rock Wars: Battle of the Bands Round 4 featuring 1st Impression vs. The Mississippi Misfits. Then, prepare yourself for a heated duel featuring 45 on High vs. The Atlantis Dialogue on Saturday. All are welcome to participate in the Community Drum Circle and consider checking out the Caroline Rose gig or Aaron Kamm & the One Drops show, too!
Ruby Slipper Love a great deal on high quality shoes and clothes?  You're in luck!  Swing back downtown on Sunday to The Ruby Slipper for their Semi-Annual Sale and save on great brands in a great store with great big discounts!   Need helping keeping all of this great info with you on the go?
