10 Fun Things To Do Week of May 31st: Raging, Wining, Laughing and MORE!
QuadCities.com proudly presents Fun10, a list of the top 10 things to do in the Quad Cities this week, and every week! Every Sunday, we’ll drop a new FUN10, to give you a head start on your week and a heads up on what’s going on over the coming seven days. Check out FUN10 every Sunday for the details on ten awesome events happening around town. It’s a cool read, and a great way to get started planning your entertainment for the week.
As the current health situation in our country continues to force the cancellation of so many regularly scheduled events in the Quad Cities, we are once again focusing this week’s edition of Fun10QC on fun entertainment you can enjoy in the safety of your own home or while practicing safe ‘social distancing’ as states begin the process of opening back up (with restrictions, of course).
So what’s on the FUN10 for this week? Read on …
Patty’s Pummel Palace Rage Room Re-Opens!
Have any pent-up anger right now? Looking for a way to therapeutically rage? Well, you’re in luck!

Worried about your safety when venturing away from home? Well, have no fear. The following statement was released on Patty’s Pummel Palace’s Facebook page:
“Someone sent a question in messenger relating to our safety gear that you use while smashing. Yes, we will be washing the coveralls and gloves daily and spraying with lysol between users. You may wear your own clothes if you wish, long sleeves and pants, closed shoes. The hard hats and glasses are disinfected between users. You will be required to use hand sanitizer before putting on the safety gear as well, and we recommend using after you are finished as well. Masks are required to enter the business!”
So, there you have it. You can now safely let off some steam. But reservations ARE required! To make your reservation today, visit https://www.pattyspummelpalace.com/.

Music from the 50’s through music that came out in the last month!
Think you know your music?
If you know what song contains these lyrics, you would probably love Rock Star Bingo!
“And she’s watching him with those eyes,
And she’s loving him with that body, I just know it,
Yeah ‘n’ he’s holding her in his arms late, late at night.”
What is Rock Star Bingo?
Just like “regular” bingo, but we replaced bingo numbers, like “B16”, with parts of songs. If you know the song title (no phones, devices or apps – basically no cheating), then mark that square. Get 5 squares in a row and you’re a winner!!
It’s the most fun you will ever have playing bingo!
