AS USUAL DOWNTOWN is rocking and rolling and another busy weekend awaits. It starts with Kayla Obert playing in our Plaza concert series at noon Friday, lots of great music Friday and Saturday nights at downtown venues (HartLyss is at the Tap Room Friday night and at Red Light Saturday afternoon) and the Farmer's Market Saturday morning. It's also a Shop Local Saturday, and we encourage you to shop local every day!
The highlight is Saturday's District Loft Tours. Three properties are on display, including the soon to be home on North Sixth Street of the Quincy Brewing Company. For those who think downtown Quincy is dying and not relevant anymore, the loft tours are an eye-opener and great chance to see how far we've come, and how far we can go.
We are hopeful the Bayview Bridge opens soon. It's been closed more than a week due to flooding, but the Mississippi River is slowly going down and it looks like we've endured the worst. We notice our traffic goes down when the bridge isn't open - it's the main portal into downtown and used by our numerous Missouri and Iowa customers.
Come see us this weekend! We've got new Fender and Gretsch guitars in stock and all kinds of great guitar amps and Fender Passport PAs to show off. As usual, it's great to be at Fifth and Maine and we hope you have a great weekend.
