Back in my day, growing up in a small town, a couple of the reasons we looked forward to Fall, were football & fair food.  We didn't get to experience either things any other time of the year.

And one of the reasons I loved the fair...was for the demolition derby!  It got so popular at my county fair...that they would have it 2 nights out of the week.  Then, once it was was gone.

Thanks to the Viola Boyz, we don't have to wait for that ONE county fair experience.  They're bringing demo derbies to us all the time.  Including this weekend!

It's a great time to bring the kids out to experience some smashing, revving of engines and all out MAYHEM on the track ahead of them.

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.

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!
