Hello!
Corned beef and green brews can only mean one thing; the annual downtown St. Patrick's Day celebration is upon us! Join thousands of revelers on Saturday for the bi-state St. Patrick's Society Grand Parade featuring floats, marching bands, and more! Click here for the parade route.  The parade kicks off at 11:30 a.m. in Rock Island and then heads for Davenport over the Centennial Bridge.   Keep the celebration going at the Post Parade Bash for food, music, raffles, and dancing. 
 
Before the parade steps off, get your blood pumping Saturday morning during the 32nd Annual CASI St. Patrick's Day Race presented by Russell Construction! This fast, flat, and fun 5K road race is the perfect way to kick off the day.  Forget to sign up?  No problem!  Sign up the morning of the race at the Figge.  You can also sign up for the Northwest Bank & Trust 1 Mile Family Fun Run/Walk, Sears Manufacturing Tot Trot, the Live Uncommon 1500 Meter 5-Person Relay, and more.  This is a great event for the whole family. 
 
3rd Street Carry on the holiday spirit at our pubs and restaurants! Head to the historic Mac's Tavern for green beer, bloody mary's and great Irish food. Stick around for a performance by The Candymakers later that evening! Start a new tradition at Me & Billy's and try their special weekend menu!  KilKenny's & Carriage Haus will offer outdoor fun and live music including Just Chords, Kevin Presbrey, and Karl Beatty.  The fun begins early!  Also, make note that Mac's will be open for a special Irish lunch on Monday.  
 
St. Patrick's Day The Office is throwing an outdoor party of its own with their neighbors Boozie's and Antonella's!  DJ Donnie, Jason Carl, and food and drink specials abound. Barrel House and Dam View will open in the morning as well with food and drink specials of their own   Later in the evening, Shenanigan's is hosting a concert with Naughty Naughty.   Don't forget the Freight House Famers Market will be open bright and early on Saturday, too.  
 
Big news!  Construction on the iconic Union Arcade Building is underway! The $13M project will bring another 60+ market-rate apartments to downtown along with new commercial use for the first floor.  This project will make a big impact on downtown, and we'd like to thank Financial District Properties and Ryan Companies for making it possible.  Ryan is no stranger to restoring historic buildings; check out this great QC-Times article detailing the amazing work they've done over the years downtown.  Speaking of progress downtown, don't forget to attend the RiverVision Planning Workshop tonight (Thursday) at the Freight House.
   
The Million Dollar Quartet was inspired by the electrifying true story of the famed recording session that brought together Elvis Presley, Johny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Carl Perkins.  Don't miss this show at the Adler.   While you're there, grab your tickets for next Thursday when Jim Gaffigan's White Bread Tour arrives; there are only a handful of tickets left!
 
Experience the private side of the life of a famous Marshalltown, Iowa native during the premiere of Movie Star: The Secret Lives of Jean Seberg at the Figge on Saturday. Examine the public American and international film Career of Seberg, along with her civil rights era activism and mysterious death abroad. Make sure to arrive early to participate in the meet-and-greet before the showing and stick around for Q&A.
 
The Chicago jazz scene makes it's way to the QC this weekend when Third Sunday Jazz presents Marquis Hill Quintet at RME. Check out the afternoon work shop and return for the evening concert.  Bring the family down for Kidz Days, and check out the rest of the live music lineup for the week, too.  Stop by before the fun begins and grab a slice of pizza from Falbo Bros!

See you downtown!
