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 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!
When I think of India, I think of brilliant colors, beautiful art and deliciously aromatic food. Last month I was reading the newsletter from the University of Illinois Extension Office in Rock Island County located in Milan, Illinois. I was delighted to see that they were offering an Indian cooking class again.
I had taken about 3 or 4 of them in the past because the instructor, Sugandhi, was excellent and the food tasting was a memorable experience. Excited to have a chance to learn more techniques, I signed up for the newest class.
We are lucky enough to live right near Igor’s Bistro, a new place to grab a bite (Halloweeny pun intended). Recently, my husband Luke and I along with our 9 month old son headed to Igor’s Bistro located at 3055 38th Street in Rock Island, Illinois, and were we glad we did!
