Business Scene for the week of 3/13/19

STAYING ON TOP OF THE INDUSTRY

Don and Dee Dee Driscoll, proprietors of Quincy Hot Spot, are headed to Dallas for the Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Association’s annual expo. It’s North America’s largest indoor-outdoor living showcase featuring over 400 leading product manufacturers and suppliers exhibiting and demonstrating their latest home heating solutions from grills and grilling accessories to fully-equipped outdoor kitchens along with heating stoves, casual patio furniture and outdoor accents; water and landscape features and more. Don and Dee Dee are excited that they will not only see the latest products for their showroom, but also the latest services and technologies in use today. They will also learn about the new EPA compliance laws that will take affect in 2020.

MOONS ANNUAL SPRING BREAK

Mike and Lisa Kelly are officially on their annual spring break, which means that Moon’s Restaurant in Quincy is closed and reopens on Thursday, March 27 “…with some fun surprises” they tell us! By the way, this year marks the couple’s eight season as proprietors and hosts of this iconic dinner house, well known and respected for its steaks, pastas and pizza.

BINGO AND LINE DANCING CLASSES

Karen at the Main Street Sports Bar and Lounge in downtown Quincy has something for just about everyone. The Main St. Girls Against MS run their bingo games every other Wednesday. The next one is today, March 13, then again on March 27, both from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.

And in case you are not into bingo how about their free line dancing classes every other Saturday. They start at 7 p.m. and the next class is this Saturday, March 16.

QUINCY CHAMBER’S EASTER GAME

The Quincy Chamber of Commerce’s second annual Easter Scramble is officially underway on March 18 and continues through April 13. It’s a fun-filled adventure for participants to search for and find the golden egg at one of the participating Chamber member businesses. The winner receives $100 worth of goods or services to be used at the participating business of their choice. On March 18, game cards will be offered for sale at The Toy Store for $1 each.

THE DRUNK BRUSH MARCH LINEUP

March’s lineup of Thursday, Friday and Saturday performers offering an easy listening blend of jazz, blues and folk music at The Drunk Brush in downtown Quincy includes a new name, Lee Wall, who will be on stage every Saturday this month. He joins a slate of other popular and talented musicians that perform at this trendy gathering spot, including Hank Alrich, who is on March 14 and again on March 28, with The Gnomes on March 15, followed by Penny & Dude on March 22. The live music begins at 6 p.m. The lounge is located on Grover Alley behind Flanigan Insurance and next to The Knook.

QUINCY ELKS CRAB FEED

The Quincy Elks Lodge is having its annual crab feed — and when we say annual we are talking decades and decades and to survive the test of that kind of time you just know it has to be good! Anyway, it’s Friday, March 22, at their Lodge on E. Main Street in East Quincy. Doors open at 5 and seating begins at 6:30 p.m. We’re told the Quincy High School softball team will be serving and will gladly accept any donations for their hard work and friendly smiles. For more information, call Tracy at 283-2265.
