Hello!
Although the Frank Lloyd Wright Exhibition closes this weekend at the Figge, two new exhibitions will open! View larger-than-life Catrina dolls and community ofrendas when the Day of the Dead Exhibition opens tonight.   This evening will also feature Thursdays at the Figge, where you can expect music, free snacks, salsa dancing, and specialty cocktails in honor of the opening. Return to the Figge on Saturday for a  lasting impression of America when 1934: A New Deal for Artists Exhibition opens.
Spend an evening with an American musical legend at the River Music Experience tomorrow night!   After performing with acts such as Eric Clapton and U2, Buckwheat Zydeco heads to the Redstone Room for an unforgettable and unique performance.  Familiarize yourself with a little gypsy-swing-jazz when Caravan of Thieves take the RME stage Saturday. Join us for this season's LAST Friday Live at 5 event tomorrow in the courtyard featuring Busted Chandeliers, too!
With the final days of September upon us, it's time for Bucktown's Final Friday featuring a book release party in Subtopia Studios and the must-see Title Wave Exhibit the guys at General Assembly Tees have been hard at work on.  If you've not been to Bucktown in awhile, there is  A LOT of new great art to enjoy and purchase!  Start your weekend off right during Final Friday with music by Subatlantic, beer from Front Street Brewery, books, food, and more.
Help raise funds for a new Catheterization Lab suite by checking out the styles of autumn during the Friends of Trinity Medical Center Celebrity Style Show at the RiverCenter.   Enjoy a luncheon that features vendors with merchandise ranging from jewelry to potter to gourmet cookies and more. On Saturday, you can start your morning off at the Quad Cities Prayer Breakfast.
For all you tea lovers out there, be sure to venture over to Gallery 114 on Saturday for the 3rd Street Tea Party! Taste a variety of teas, both hot and cold, while perusing paintings, jewelry, and pottery by various artists. You can grab dinner at Antonella's or Boozie's Bar and Grill next door.

Speaking of 3rd Street, you may have noticed The Office Bar & Lounge recently opened!  Their official grand opening is still on the horizon, but their unique atmosphere and excellent service is already drawing plenty of visitors.  Check it out while you're in the neighborhood.
Keep in mind that Bix Bistro's 5 Course Oktoberfest Dinner highlighting a portfolio of Ayinger Beers will be next Thursday. Until then, make a trip to Hotel Blackhawk for a night of Blackhawk Bowling with friends and family. Or, stop in Spa Luce to pamper yourself with a variety of spa services including massages, facials, and more.
See you downtown!
