Homebrew Festiv-ALE 2018

The HOMEBREW FESTIV-ALE returns Saturday, July 14, and aims to be bigger and better than ever! I recently met up with Jason Parris, co-owner of Wake Brewing and event creator and coordinator, to get the details on this year’s festivities.

FESTIV-ALE is a great way to learn about homebrewing, meet those that have built and sustain the community that surrounds it, and to try what they love to make. There will be over 50 beers on tap to taste. Continue reading Homebrew Festiv-ALE 2018

There’s two and a half months worth of summer vacation from school, and there’s a hundred different ways to spend it. Whether you spend it enjoying lazy days at the pool, running around outside, relaxing in the cool breeze of the air conditioning, or participating in fun STEM activities, the possibilities are endless. This summer the Moline Public Library is encouraging families to come on in, and dive into a world of literacy, engineering, history and other related STEM activities through their World Monument Building Challenge that started June 11th and ends June 30th.

The Hauberg Civic Center, 1300 24th Street in Rock Island, Illinois, is also known as Hauberg Estate, a beautiful place tucked on top of the hill.

Chinese Food Freshly Made: Ming Wah

Ming Wah Chinese Restaurant, a family owned business, has been a staple restaurant for me for over 15 years. I remember going to their first restaurant, The Golden Wok, in East Moline. From there Poi and her husband moved to the present location in Moline. The restaurant is in close proximity to many businesses and residential neighborhoods. The thing that keeps me returning to Ming Wah is the use of less oil and fresh and healthy ingredients in their dishes.
