Forget Pumpkin Spice Lattes, Vanilla Pumpkin Beer Is Your New Beverage Crush

October 17th, 2018

Forget your pumpkin spice lattes. You want a fall beverage that’s really going to warm up your ugg boots and steam up your Han Solo vest and stretch pants? Head over to your friendly neighborhood HyVee Marketplace Café and get yourself the O’Fallon Vanilla Pumpkin Beer, which is now on tap. After having a couple of these, you’ll feel like you’re cheating on your Starbucks in the best of ways and the worse of ways. When I first saw the Vanilla Pumpkin Beer on tap, of course dozens of basic white girl jokes came tumbling out of my brain like so many wicked treats out of a Halloween bag,... Read More

Aroma Offers Delightful Scents And Tastes

August 6th, 2018

Nestled inside the Green Thumbers flower shop on Brady Street, is a lovely place where you can have a coffee and enjoy the sight and smell of true natural beauty. The coffee shop has been a part of the beautiful floral Nursery for  slightly over a year. But in that one year Aroma Coffee has gained quite a following. Not just those with green thumbs( that right there leaves me out) stop in.  But people driving up Brady Street and( we know how busy Brady Street gets.) Many business people and they have quite a group of Palmer students come in for a coffee a cinnamon roll or a very tasty fresh made... Read More

It’s Always Showtime At The Adler

July 30th, 2018

The Adler Theater is always poised between being a part of history and adding to it. A venerable Quad-Cities landmark and gorgeous architectural gem, the Adler has added to its luster by hosting a wide variety of entertainers over its nearly 85 years as a performing arts venue, first as the RKO Orpheum when it was built in 1931, at 136 E. 3rd St., and as the Adler since 1986. “We’re here to make memorable experiences for people,” said Heather Brummel, director of marketing.

You’ll Be Sweet On Radicle’s Strawberries And Cream Beer

July 25th, 2018

You ever wonder what happened to Strawberry Shortcake? You know, Strawberry Shortcake, the cartoon ginger who has had her artificially-scented life documented by various cartoons/animated reality TV shows over the past couple of decades before they got sent to the reeking dumpster of cancellation? Her friends were Lemon Meringue, Blueberry Muffin, Orange Blossom and Raspberry Torte, and they all had their own sickly sweet and sour personalities, but Strawberry Shortcake was the leader. Strawberry Shortcake debuted in 1980 as a child in the cartoons, so she’d be in her forties now. And like many... Read More

Charley’s Is A Delicious Slice Of Philly In Davenport

July 21st, 2018

A philly cheesesteak sandwich seems deceptively simple to make but it’s much easier to botch than you would think. And believe it or not, Charley’s Philly Steaks – a MALL sandwich shop no less – is the real deal. And it’s freaking delicious. A philly is, at its heart, thin slices of steak, onions, green peppers and a rich cheese (I’ve seen everything from the traditional provalone or Havarti to cheddar used) between a couple of toasted but fresh sub rolls. Sounds pretty easy, but more often than not, some element is off. The steak is overdone and too chewy, there’s too many onions,... Read More

Radicle’s New Mango Mint Brew Is The Beer Of The Summer

May 9th, 2018

Mango, peach, beer… and mint? Ewww, right? Bear with me folks, bear with me. If there’s one of several bars in the Quad-Cities that I really enjoy going to, it’s Radicle Effect, at 1340 31st Street, Rock Island. The bartenders can vouch for this. So can many of the regulars. So can Freddy Rumsen. Radicle is a pretty radical joint. If you haven’t been there, I highly recommend you check it out. It’s got a lot of the veteran bartenders from one of my other faves, Blue Cat, now behind the post, as well as several other excellent mixologists. It’s a great place to get a perfect Old Fashioned... Read More

QCCA Expo Center Has A Storied History

January 4th, 2018

In a storied history that began as a Sash and Door Works, traveled through time as a notorious Millwork company, was decimated multiple times by fire and then finally rebuilt as the edifice today known as the QCCA Expo Center, the building at 2621 4th Avenue in Rock Island has seen its share of muddled and magnificent local lore. The 60,000 square foot Expo Center features a 4,600 square foot auditorium that has a seating capacity of 500 used for consumer trade shows and special events, including antique shows, auto shows, craft shows, holiday-themed celebrations and more. And in the last 33 years... Read More
