For Thanksgiving you either show off your culinary skills with a dish to pass or stop by and grab a pre-cut tray of veggies.

Don't be either of those people. Stop by your local brewery this year & get some to-go beers in growler, crowler or can form and show off your taste in beer.

Then you can talk crap about your sister's mince meat pie.

Most breweries are open Wednesday and probably open later than normal.

Saturday is Small Business Saturday so it's the perfect time to grab some certificates from the QC breweries for the beer lover on your list.

Blue Cat Brewing Co has a Cucumber Goze and the Harper Cotton Candy Bubble Gum Blonde that people are going crazy over.

Support your local brewery this holiday season!

The Worst Things You Can Eat or Drink Before Flying This Holiday

The holidays always brings their own set of challenges, but there’s no denying that traveling for the holiday makes things especially tricky. If you’re flying to go see family or friends, here are some things you definitely should NOT eat or drink right before hopping on a plane along with a couple ideas of good food for you to eat before a flight.

Quad Cities Live Music Venues That Aren't Live Music Venues Anymore

Nostalgia Alert!.

We've compiled a quick list (by no means comprehensive) of venues in the Quad Cities that are no longer music venues but to us will ALWAYS hold a special place were we saw some great shows and made some incredible memories.

To many of us the live music scene wasn't just a concert here & there. It was an every weekend affair. And it didn't matter if it was a touring band or your buddy's band. We were going to be there with a beer in hand and scream along with guitars that were way too loud in a room that was improperly treated acoustically and make some bad decisions.
