The Figge’s Dia de los Muertos event returns Oct. 28th

The beautiful blend of cultures is a quality that makes our great Quad Cities a wonderful place to live. The music, art, and heritage is high quality in our community, as we celebrate, honor, and delve into cultural appreciation. Local events are no exception, and the Figge Art Museum hosts a free Dia de los Muertos fiesta on Sunday, October 28 from 12-5 p.m.

Wheel Throwing Pottery Lessons with Carolyn Krueger at QC Co-Lab

For our recent wedding anniversary my husband, Luke, and I spent time wheel throwing pottery with Carolyn Krueger in the Clay Lab at QC Co-Lab in Davenport. IT WAS AMAZING!! Carolyn Krueger is a fabulous local artist who really cares about bringing art into the lives of Quad Citizens. You can learn more about her from Deborah Davis’ post titled Carolyn Krueger and The ARTery. What I found especially fantastic was that while she was clearly a very talented artist, her greatest gift might actually be patience. She was an excellent teacher and well worth the time and money we spent with her.

Ragged Records Opens Second Location

Independent music store, Ragged Records and Music, located at 418 E. 2nd Street in Davenport, Iowa, is one of the most popular destinations for vinyl in the Quad Cities Area. With one of the largest used record selections in the Midwest as well as being seated at the foot of the Arsenal Bridge, it is accessible for travelers and locals alike.

Now wax fans (and CD collectors) have two locations to dig through, Ragged Records & Music just opened up a spot at 311 1/2 21st Street in Rock Island, Illinois. While there will be some overlap in vinyl inventory, both stores will offer different selections as well as other music related products.

Fresh Dining In Downtown Moline

Looking for a fine place to dine and drink? I suggest Fresh Eatery & Wine Bar in Downtown Moline. Moline is becoming the place to go for locally innovative restaurants and drink establishments. Recently my friends and I attended a production at The Black Box Theatre. Since Fresh is only a few block from the theatre we decided to try dinner there before the show.

Colleges to Visit in the Quad Cities

With 400,000 people in the Quad Cities area, we offer a unique location to go to college. We aren’t a typical “college town” but we also aren’t a “small town in the middle of a cornfield.” Instead we offer college students some great benefits: opportunities for job shadowing and internships, a limited pool of competitors for those opportunities (unlike large cities or college towns with a glut of youth looking for experience), affordable sports and arts events, a fun nightlife with a variety of downtowns, and a safe place to grow to adulthood.

If you have (or are) a student searching for colleges, I highly recommend putting the Quad Cities colleges on your list of places to stop.
