Illinois Is Opening Up TODAY. How Will Your Life Change?

Illinois Is Opening Up TODAY. How Will Your Life Change?

It was mid-March of last year when we first heard the news. There was going to be a shutdown. But what did that mean? None of us had ever lived through anything like that. What was that even going to entail? How would our lives change, if at all? Already, events had started to get canceled. Sports games for kids. School. Arts activities. Concerts. Theater shows. Everything was going on hold for a couple of weeks. But it was just going to be a couple of weeks. A month, max. And, hell, it was winter, the weather was terrible anyway, we weren’t going to be going outside as it was. It wasn’t... Read More

Ani DiFranco, Or Bonnie Jovanko, Coming To Maquoketa's Codfish Hollow... But When?

Call me a gamblin’ man, but I have a really strong feeling alt-rock legend Ani DiFranco is coming to Codfish Hollow and there’s going to be an official announcement soon. Tiff, the Queen of Codfish Hollow, posted on her Facebook last night, the following not-so-cryptic message: “Just confirmed the first show of the season with a musician whose name rhymes with Connie HiPlanko!!! Hint: she used my library once. Holy hell. It’s her first show back since covid too… and our first show. It’s true love!” Now, either there’s an incredibly underground and... Read More

Doc Gives A Full-Throated (And Bellied) Review For Davenport’s The Half Nelson

Doc Gives A Full-Throated (And Bellied) Review For Davenport's The Half Nelson

As restaurants struggle to reinvent themselves, The Half Nelson reimagines the world around it. Walking in you’ll see a world transformed to a time when things bamboozled you. I feel completely underdressed! Maybe I should be wearing a nice suit and slick my hair back with some Dapper Dan. Whatever the case, the Half Nelson is bringing the 1920’s to the 2020’s with a little style and panache. I wish I could say that I found this time machine located in Downtown Davenport towards the end of 2nd Street. Instead, I was invited and treated by Chef Philip Pridemore. This Chef... Read More

TOMRV Rides Into Quad-Cities This Weekend

After its first ride in 1978, the ride known affectionately as “TOMRV” (pronounced tom-rahvv) returns this weekend.  TOMRV stands for Tour of the Mississippi River Valley.  Hosted by the Quad Cities Bicycle Club, it has grown in ridership over the years.  In 2019, most of the 950 riders were from Iowa and Illinois, although 15 other states were represented.  It was cancelled in 2020.  This year 500 people have registered so far.
