Hello!
Mother's Day Happy Mother's Day to all those Mom's out there! Be sure to take advantage of our annual Mother's Day Promotions featuring a variety of items and events. Find unique gifts at Beaux Arts Fair at the Figge and take Mom out for brunch at  Modern Woodmen Park, Hotel Blackhawk, or another one of our great downtown restaurants. Don't forget to peruse some quality crafts and flowers during Mother's Day at the Farmer's Market, too!
"The Queen of Clean Comedy" takes the stage at the Adler Theater tonight!  Take in a healthy dose of laughter from Chonda Pierce as she shows off a whole bag of new tricks you won't want to miss. The Talent on Parade Dance Competition is also at the Adler this weekend, so plan to cheer on those that choose to dance their hearts out.
calliko
Rap music's newest breakout sensation makes his way to the River Music Experience this Friday when Calliko presents Swagfest 3.0. See what makes people compare this special artist to Nelly, Eminem, and Kanye West. On Saturday, spend An Evening with Bob Dorr & the Blue Band to help celebrate the band's 32nd anniversary! You may even get to request a song or two.
young artists at the figge Explore the artwork presented by Pleasant Valley Elementary School this Saturday in the Young Artists at the Figge Exhibition. If you haven't seen the American POP Art Exhibition yet, head on out tonight and participate in a gallery talk that focuses on the artwork and artists involved. The German American Heritage Center also has a new exhibit opening this weekend! For those photography lovers, make sure you take the time to see the Double Expose: Prints of Past and Present Exhibition.
wine dinner
In need of a date night? Sip on fine wine with a partner at the 5 Course Wine Dinner this Friday at Hotel Blackhawk's Bix Bistro. Treat yourself to a night of fine conversation over an assortment of courses that highlight the fine wine portfolio of Opolo Vineyards. Don't forget about Brady Street Pub's Mugz Club Special Tapping on Friday, too!
Round up the family and head to River's Edge for their Family Friday Night Skate Night! Spend the night skating, laughing, and bonding with the family to kick-off summer. Or, cheer on your local River Bandits at one of their home games this week. It's a great way to enjoy this spring weather!

See you downtown!
