It's the Summer Solstice, the day with the longest amount of daylight hours all year long.

1 - We'll see quite a bit of sun on this official beginning of Summer. There is a slim chance of a pop-up thunderstorm this afternoon. Hopefully, minus the gusto of yesterday afternoon's storm. WQAD Meteorologist Eric Sorensen's detailed forecast can be found here.

2 - Former Doobie Brother Michael McDonald takes the stage tonight at the iWireless Center. Meanwhile, I have more tickets to giveaway to see The Beach Boys at the Adler Theatre on July 13th. Listen for your chance to call-in and win. More entertainment news when we do That Hollywood Thing at around 8:40am on The Morning KIIK Start.

3 - Modern Woodmen Park fell a few votes short to Four Winds Park in South Bend, Indiana in's Best Ballpark in America online poll. We all know that Modern Woodmen is still the best ballpark in the nation though, right? The River Bandits are off today. The Midwest League All-Star Game is tonight at 7:05pm in Midland, Michigan. Listen for That Sports Thing at about 7:40am on FM 104-9.

4 - I also have a $20 gift card to Nally's Kitchen, on Rockingham Road in Davenport, up for grabs this morning. They feature fresh, delicious, homestyle, old-fashioned Mexican food, and it is Taco Tuesday over there too.

Have a Taco-filled Tuesday.
