I asked my fellow Quad Citizens for the best sandwiches available in the Quad Cities and they delivered. My mouth is literally watering as I write this and I can’t wait until my next lunch date! My advice: just start at the top of the list and work your way down. There’s not a single sandwich or establishment on this list that you will regret trying. Sooooo many tasty recommendations!
Anticipation is in the air already as people are gearing up for the first holiday 3-day weekend of the summer. So…. What you doing? We’ve put together a list of things to keep you busy.
SAINTS is a new boutique located in the Village of East Davenport at 2109 E. 12th Street in Davenport, Iowa. It opened up in July of 2018. I recently had the pleasure of meeting the owner, Sarah Alexander, to talk to her about her vision and all the great ideas behind the new shop.
Designer Carolina Herrera, once said, “A wedding dress is both an intimate and personal for a woman – it must reflect the personality and style of the bride.” Along with the love, care, and passion that is reflected in your relationship, a wedding dress also needs to reflect the nature of the bride as an individual. As a bride, you have a dream of what that dress will be, and the realistic budget that must come with it. Now as a bride-to-be myself, I can attest to how true this is — a dream dress and a budget aren’t always the easiest pair to find…. Or are they?
This is a magical time leading up to the holidays. In the Quad Cities and surrounding communities, many of the historic downtown districts decorate for the season and celebrate with events, parades, shopping, fireworks, living windows, and Christmas walks. Thousands of people come to ring in the holiday season at these events.
I’m a woman who thrives for days on chocolate, a little bit of coffee, de-stressing, and running. It is the perfect balance to creating a healthy lifestyle balanced with some moderation. Personally, I know a lot of people feel the same. How would we get along in our crazy lifestyles without taking a break to embrace our active java and chocolate junkie lifestyles?
It’s going to be a spooky, scary Halloween season this October in the Quad Cities area! There are plenty of places and events to put you in the Halloween spirit.
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.
The Quad Cities has a lot of options for all types of adults planning a weekend trip away or a local “staycation” from the Active to the Adventurous, or for the more Artistic.
