The world changed for all Cubs fans on November 2nd, 2016 when the Chicago Cubs won the World Series for the first time in 108 years. Not being a Cubs fan, I can still appreciate the excitement of seeing your team finally holding up the Commissioner's Trophy.

Well you might not be able to hold it like the players did, but on Monday the World Series trophy will be at the River Music Experience in Davenport. No doubt a ton of people are going to show up to see it, but it is only here for a very short time and space to see it is very limited.

You see although RME is hosting it, the tour the trophy is currently on is being held by the Chicago Cubs. That means they make the rules and they call the shots. Luckily, we have a venue here that is able to highlight this event in a way Davenport can be proud of.

I'm told that only 750 pictures will be allowed in the short time that it is here in Davenport and then it is off to another location for another viewing. This is good and bad. That could mean that 750 individual people can get their picture taken with the trophy or it could mean that if people doubled and tripled up more people could get in to see it by taking group shots. Either way, it's only here for an hour and a half.

The doors will open at 10 a.m. The line will then snake through the downstairs lobby of the RME and upstairs into the main hall. The viewing itself will start at noon. The Cubs will be showing a 40 minute documentary on the World Series that will be on their two screens to give you some relief while waiting.

We were lucky enough to get a pair of VIP tickets to Monday's viewing. The VIP gets you into the RME a full hour before the public is able to see it. We will be giving away these tickets on Monday morning's Dwyer & Michaels Morning Show.

If you don't think you'll be able to win (or don't bother listening to this crap), the River Music Experience is hosting their 8th Annual Winter Wine Experience presented by Estes Construction on Saturday night.  Here they'll have 50 different red and white wines provided by Dimitri Wine & Spirits, hors d'oeuvres, and a full night of live music from the Steve Grismore Quartet. They have tickets available for $30 for members, $35 in advance or $40 at the door and you can order them here.

I'm mentioning this because they're having a silent auction along with the 50/50 drawings. A little birdie told me that one of the items in the auction is a pair of VIP tickets to see the World Series Trophy on Monday.

So if you'd like to score some VIP tickets to a private viewing on Monday the Winter Wine Experience might be up your alley. Remember, it's a fundraiser and the money helps fund all of the music and educational programming at the RME.

So there you have it. Two chances to get VIP tickets that no one else can get. One from us on the Dwyer & Michaels Show and one from the 8th Annual Winter Wine Experience.
