Hello!
If you have yet to see the 2012 College Invitational at the Figge Art Museum, now's your last chance! This exhibition of the best work from local colleges and universities closes  this Sunday. Learn pastel layering, blending, textural techniques in the Pastel Portraits Workshop Saturday, too. On Sunday, see the remarkable journey of Catholic nuns in the US when the Figge shows Band of Sisters.
Ride a loop along the Mississippi and Duck Creek this Saturday starting at 9 a.m. during Chili Loop Rides! Start at the Freight House in Davenport and grab a hot drink at the Fresh Deli. After the ride, return to the Freight House and enjoy chili or corn chowder and other treats from Fresh Deli, local brews from Front Street Brewery, and shopping at the Market.
After sharing the stage with several influential blues artists such as Tommy Castro, Tab Benoit, and Shirley King, Samantha Fish makes her way back to the River Music Experience Saturday! Come hear this Blues prodigy's deceptively mature voice and intense guitar for a fresh, unique blues show. Network at Night kicks off tonight at RME, too.
Hop
Love a good hoppy brew?  Don't miss the return of the always popular Hop A Potamus at Great River Brewery on Saturday at 1 p.m! Rhythm City Casino is gearing up for Flatscreen Frenzy down the road, and if you're in the mood for winning a new TV, we recommend you stop by.
Check out the German American Heritage Center this Sunday for their first Open House! See all the great things the museum has to offer for FREE from noon until 4 p.m. Also, for those of you looking become a new member, you can save $5 by doing so Sunday.
