Boetje’s Mustard is a locally made with an Old World Dutch recipe. It has been stone ground and wood-aged since 1889 in Rock Island, Illinois.

I was recently fortunate enough to get a tour of the facility and see how and where one of the most famous products from the Quad Cities Area is made.
A few years back father and son duo, Chad and Nieko Summers, started Healthy Harvest Urban Farms in East Moline, Illinois. It’s an organic community garden and garden center. They have recently taken this venture and extended into a storefront in downtown Rock Island.

The music scene in the Quad Cities has, in my opinion, been going through a renaissance period. From many new venues opening up to different people booking talent on both sides of the river, there is a diverse mix of talent being featured all over.
This is a question I get often from people – where do I like to go see shows. So I put together a list.
On a recent walk in downtown Davenport, Iowa, I came across a business that I had not seen or heard of before: COWORKQC, located at 102 2nd Street. Out of curiosity, I decided to venture inside.
