Somebody has to be an optimist about the Midwest
  1. Lagomarcino's banana splits and sandwiches
    Candy counter lady can be brusque; everybody else is chatty and nice
  2. Rock River views from pale blue bridges
  3. The Skybridge
    Always smells like pee but trains run under it and the kids love it
  4. Local folks affection for taco pizza
    You guys didn't invent it, but I will let you think you did.
  5. Moline Public Library
    Always impressive local art and revolving door of speakers/exhibits/performances
  6. The Figge
  7. Rock Island's ghettos which are not at all
