I went to the Swing game yesterday, and had the luck/misfortune of it being "High School Day." Apparently this means kids of all ages from about a 30-mile radius take a day off of school and get bused to JOD for some baseball. It was neat to see thousands of kids packing the stadium, at least until it came time to stand in line for a hot dog. Despite having a big crowd, only 2 of the concession stands were open, so there was quite a wait to get food. However, it was great to see the home team really blow out the visitors for once, including a 10-run 5th inning. The attendance was nearly 4000, counting all the kids.
Also, if you're downtown this week, stop by the Design Center. In honor of Historic Preservation Week, they will be hosting an exhibit called "Davenport Lost." It is filled with side-by-side images of historic buildings around Davenport that have been lost over the passing years, and what those locations look like today. Pretty interesting stuff, if you're into history at all. The Design Center is located on the northeast corner of 2nd and Brady.
