Hello!
It's Easter and that means eggs, baskets, bunnies...and brunch! Head to Hotel Blackhawk's Easter Brunch featuring carving stations and food galore or make your way to the Figge Art Museum's Easter Brunch.  Use your Figge brunch receipt for free admission to the museum plus get a 10% discount in the store. Rhythm City has an Easter Easter Brunch too featuring live entertainment and an upscale holiday menu with traditional favorites.
justin moore With two gold albums already under his belt, Justin Moore makes his way to perform at the Adler Theater tonight for his Outlaws Like Me Tour. Come hear how his latest single Till My Last Day hit number one on both Mediabase and Billboard country music charts. With special guest Dustin Lynch, this is sure to be a great show.

Let the band's acrobatic stilt walkers, hula hoops, and more inspire some of your own dance moves! Until then, head out tomorrow for a show full of general hysteria with Gypsy Lumberjacks.
wine dinner Treat your taste buds to a little something extra tonight during Bix Bistro's 5 Course Wine Dinner. Enjoy fine Italian wine paired with contemporary American and Italian cuisine.  Tomorrow, enjoy a plated meal, drinks, and a mystery show at Rhythm City Casino during their Mystery Dinner Theater!

Tim Stop After teaming up with the producer for the Fray and Colbie Caillat, Tim Stop is heading back to RME to show his talent as a vocalist, guitarist, pianist and songwriter on Saturday. Tonight, don't miss the folk rock and pop group, The Ragbirds, who USA Today hailed as "Highly impressive!" Tomorrow, be sure to check out Jason Carl & the Whole D Band for their CD release show.
young artists at the figge It's Davenport's time to shine at the Young Artists at the Figge Exhibit! Peruse incredible artwork all created by elementary students in Davenport. While you're at it, check out tonight's Thursdays at the Figge: PechaKucha Night.

See you downtown!
