If you're a QC local, then you're familiar with Angie Sharp from WQAD. She co-anchors "Good Morning Quad Cities" and has recently started the "Wonder Women" podcast. Angie is an incredible force within the community, to say the least! She graciously invited my sisters...

With Memorial Day weekend comes the honorary start to summer! As we work on our summer cocktail menu and start to enjoy patio weather on #SittinOnMain, my thoughts turn to all the fun warm-weather activities in and around the Quad Cities. I make a list every year, lest...
