What was your first beer you drank?

This is a different question than “what was the first beer you tasted”.  The first beer you tasted was probably on your way from the fridge to your dad’s recliner.  There was way more of a chance you’d cut yourself on the pull tab than catch a buzz.

The first beer.  The first full beer you drank.  What was it?

Mine was an Old Milwaukee.  We were camping by Elkhorn Creek and a buddy brought a case of it on his 4 wheeler.  I drank the first 3 sitting down by the fire…which was a mistake.  Because when I stood up…I realized I didn’t have the tolerance I thought I did a minute earlier.

Unfortunately for the guy who brought the Old Mill…I repaid him by using his sleeping bag as a toilet after repeated warnings to stay away from that particular part of the woods.

No matter what beer it was that broke your beer cheery, it is probably on the list of Retro Beer Night happening at The Bike Rack in Davenport who are offering you to do a tour of “Retro Beers”, “Old Man Cans” or as we call it…beer!

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

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.
