I googled the following question:

"What’s the difference between a bartender and a mixologist?"

I was hoping for a sincere answer and instead I got this punchline:

"Nothing, except a mixologist doesn't get invited to parties."

Funny.  But untrue in this scenario! The Martini Shake Off is back in 2022!

Thursday, February 17, 2022 at the Rivercenter in downtown Davenport!  From 5:30 PM – 9 PM We'll be sipping on martini samples from local mixologists to support a great cause.

This year, Havlife is supporting the mission of Preventing Lost Potential.

Time Stopped in the 70s at This Rock Island Home

This Rock Island home has just hit the market for just over $100,000. If you take a look inside you might feel like you're at Grandma's house. This home seems to be stuck in the 1970s.

Shag carpeting? Check. Bright avocado 70s green? Check. Drapes that cover not just the window, but the entire wall? Check. And my favorite; carpet in the kitchen AND bath? Check. Let's take a look inside this 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom affordable home that's for sale now in Rock Island.

Craft Breweries in the Quad Cities Area

We're very lucky to live in an area with such an amazing, thriving "craft beer scene". You'll be able to find everything you could want.

Not sure what you want? That's ok. The bartenders at these establishments are very well versed and can guide you through a wonderland of Ales and Lagers.

From "coffee infused" to "riff infused".

From "pale ales" to "peanut butter porters".

Fruity, Sour, Hoppy, Malty, Crisp, Crushable beers in all shapes and sizes.

Crowlers, Growlers, Cans & Kegs...the Quad Cities Craft Beer scene has it all.

And of course...a great beer isn't complete unless it's paired with some amazing food. Whether it's made in the breweries kitchen or in the food truck in the parking lot...brewers know that people love food with their beer. 

Take a look at the 19 Quad Cities Area craft breweries!
