There's been some big changes at Bass Street Chop House over the past couple years.  April 10, 2020 they made the announcement to close their doors due to the pandemic and I-74 construction costing them customers.

Combine, a Bass Street restaurant also shut down...but thank goodness only for a few weeks.

Then, magically, a month later Bass Street Chop House popped up in the old TGI Friday's location at the Radisson in Moline and since then it's like someone has left the Magui with an open container of water.

(In that they are multiplying.  You understood that reference, right?)

Now...great news! The new Combine, a Bass Street Restaurant is opening on the Iowa side of the Quad Cities.

“Combine”, A Bass Street Restaurant offers casual, fresh, American cuisine with a Midwest Flare and is opening at Utica & 53rd in Davenport.

At Combine, we offer a variety of excellent options for both lunch and dinner, as well as a full cocktail menu. Whether you want to enjoy some appetizers and drinks with friends, or are looking for a romantic date night, you can be sure to find a dish you’ll love. Combine is also offers a professional yet inviting setting that is perfect for a business lunch, or meeting with colleagues.  View our complete menu below, and contact us today to reserve a table.

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.
