Hello!
Ring in the new year downtown! Celebrate NYE at Hotel Blackhawk and dance the night away with a hosted bar, hors d'oeuvers, live music  by Cosmic, and a champagne toast at midnight!  You can even get a package deal to stay the night, too.
Grateful Dead Do you love the Grateful Dead?  How about some upbeat blues tunes you can dance to?  Head to the River Music Experience for an awesome NYE Bash with The Candymakers and The Greatest Story Ever Told! Whether you're there for the Dead tunes or the R&B, funk, and soul of the Candymakers, we're certain you'll have a blast.


SophistafunkEnjoy the spoken-word artistry, old-school hip hop, and funky rhythms of New York's Sophistafunk on Saturday evening at RME! Don't miss this rare opportunity to groove to Sophistafunk live while they're in the QC. RME will also host the Winter Blues Jam on Saturday along with fellow local indie/pop act HighFives & Handshakes.  Stop in for the Community Drum Circle with the kids, too.

 

Take part in a docent-guided tour of the exhibition Quilts: Masterworks from the American Folk Art Museum at the Figge Art Museum this Sunday. Converse about the art while trained docents answer any questions you may have. Don't forget to check out the many other current exhibitions like the 2012 College Invitational or the Portrait of Maquoketa: The Dimensional View, while you still have the chance!

 

If you're hungry Monday, hit up Rhythm City for the New Year's Eve Buffet where you can enjoy prime rib and crab legs!  If you missed the buffet at Rhythm City Casino on New Years Eve, stop in Tuesday for a fabulous Brunch with live entertainment by Jordan Danielsen.

 

App Photo

Of course, many of our bars and restaurants will be featuring a variety of New Year's Eve parties and specials throughout downtown, too.  Have you downloaded our App yet to have this handy list on the go?  Download our Android App or our iPhone App today!

 

Have a safe and happy New Year!

 

See you downtown!
