There are differing opinions about who makes the best macaroni & cheese. Some are very traditional and other enjoy taking it to the next level. Who has the greatest Mac & Cheese in the QC?  We're going to find out on Saturday, October 9, 2021.

It's time for the QC Mac Down at the Freighthouse in Davenport, Iowa.

You don’t see many restaurants or eateries that serve mac & cheese because of its simplicity. It’s actually pretty difficult to get wrong, but when it’s done right, there isn’t anything better than a great bowl of cheesy pasta.

Before tasting, most everyone has a different opinion of what makes a good mac & cheese. When it comes down to it, what makes a great mac & cheese is all up to personal preference. So how does one go about deciding which is right for them? Is it a texture thing? A sauce-to-pasta ratio? The amount of melted cheese? We don't have all of your answers, but we do have some options for great Mac & Cheese.

11:30am-1pm you'll have the ability to taste and vote for your favorite.

2pm is time to crown the Mac Down Champ!

They'll have live music from Locust Street Boys from 11a-1p and Identity Crisis from 4p-7p

Mac & Cheese is one of my favorite comfort foods for sure!

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.
