We all have a story about our first beer.
Mine was an Old Milwaukee. About 6 of them. And I drank them sitting down in front of a fire. We know what happens when you sit for a long time while drinking. You think you're invincible. Until you stand up.
Unfortunately the guy who was nice enough to bring us beer to our campsite got his sleeping bag peed on by yours truly.
But it was a memorable night.
I asked our listeners what THEIR first beer was and the results were quite varied!

What The Quad Cities Did For Fun in the 90's
Many times over the years, I'll be talking with friends about years gone by and I'll say "take me back".
Every generation goes through this, I assume. Looking back at a more simple time where responsibilities haven't set in and life seems fun. Opportunities are endless.
Let's go back to the 1990's to Wacky Waters, 50 Cent Beer night and revisit Mallards Mania!
Quad Cities Live Music Venues That Aren't Live Music Venues Anymore
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.
