WAKE Brewing opened for business on Saturday. This has been a long time coming and has many people in the Quad Cities craft beer community very excited. I had to opportunity to get a sneak peak of the new place and sit down with the owners to hear all about our community’s next brewery.
Fall is the season of leaves, cooler temps, pumpkin spice, and Oktoberfests! There are a lot of different versions to this fun classic event in the Quad Cities.
It is a rare occasion when you enter a hotel and think that you are in an art gallery. This is the experience that my friends and I had when we went to the new Current hotel in downtown Davenport, Iowa.
The newest addition to the local brewing scene in the Quad Cities is coming up on its one-year anniversary. Baked Beer & Bread Co. is located in the Village of East Davenport, at 1113 Mound Street. With plans already for expansion, I sat down with their newly appointed Head Brewer Curt Johnson to find out what’s coming up for the establishment.
Make plans to join the Quad Cities community at the Quad City Symphony Riverfront Pops Concert – The Beatles’ Greatest Hits on Saturday, August 19.
Bring chairs, blankets, food, coolers, family and friends to LeClaire Park in Iowa. You can also buy concessions from some of your local favorites. Set out your picnic spread and enjoy the show!
In the past two months I have had family in town visiting and this is always a special time to show off what the Quad Cities has to offer on the restaurant scene. I had always wanted to try Hemispheres Bistro in Bettendorf so I chose it for two family culinary experiences; a late lunch and an evening dinner.
I recently had the chance to visit Element Tea & Wine Lounge located at 5345 Belle Court, Suite 4 in Davenport, Iowa. Since opening earlier this year, I have heard many good things and decided to check it out myself. I took a break in a very busy day and it was a perfect choice. It was a peaceful, quiet environment and with a helpful and respectful staff.
I am not one to choose chain restaurants when I go out to eat. The Quad Cities is fortunate to have a good mix of locally owned ethnic restaurants that allow you to taste foods from around the world. Last weekend to celebrate Brian’s birthday, we chose Indian food. What a celebration of flavors, color and texture it was!
