The tropical-themed restaurant, which opened in February 2015 in its old location on Kimberly, and moved last year, has been growing its fan base faster than a palm tree in the rainy season, serving up fish tacos and other exotic delectables at outdoor fests like YaMaka My Weekend this past summer, and pulling in healthy crowds for its festive lunch and dinner... Read More

QC Fitness Changing The Local Health And Fitness Scene

Blake Selby is changing the local fitness and diet scene one text at a time.

Leo’s Still A Shoe Thing For Repairs In Rock Island

Squirreled away amongst the depression-era architectural remains of downtown Rock Island, next to the shimmering strip clubs and sagging dive bars on 20th Street, scant slumping steps from the eternal river that announces the end of Illinois, is a sentinel of a bygone era that transcends time and trends. Walk within its doors and you enter a cramped kingdom, a taut narrow expanse of colorful cardboard towers soaring to the stucco ceiling, monolith over a workshop bursting with stitches and steel. A tall, thin man with ebon and silver bolts of hair and an impish grin greets you, hearty and hale,... Read More
