It's sad to think that summer is coming to an end and the best place to get ice cream in eastern Iowa and the Quad Cities will be closing for the season. The good thing is that there is still enough time to enjoy their delicious ice cream.

Quad Cities #1 Ice Cream Shop Closing For The Season

Earlier this year, we asked you where the best place to get ice cream was in the Quad Cities. After two years of being at number one, Whitey's Ice Cream was dethroned by a little west-end shop called Sweet Delite.

Sweet Delite gained a lot of popularity are we published that list. By no surprise, when people tried Sweet Delite, they were instantly hooked.

After a great 2023 summer season, Sweet Delite is closing its doors for the winter on Saturday, September 30th. Don't worry, they'll reopen for the 2024 Summer season. But to close out this year, they are hosting a car show and cruise.

Hidden Pizza Gem 1 Hour Outside The Quad Cities

Having the best pizza in the Quad Cities has always been a fierce competition. I mean we even have our own version of pizza for goodness sake. While there are some incredible pizza joints in the Quad Cities, there are other pizza places that you need to visit. Geno's Pizza in Preston, IA is one of those places. It's less than an hour's drive from the Quad Cities and it's a spot you need to try.

Ghost In Our Iowa Basement?

As a radio station, we have a lot of people here who have seen some scary stuff. Do you see any ghosts in these photos? I can't, but I also don't know what to look for.

This Isn't The First Face Caught On Camera Here!
In September of 2020 the band "Pit Lord" came to the building to shoot a music video. They shot it in the basement and for a split second in the recording, you can make out a face of what looks to be a woman. You can see that video here.

With a history of ghosts, it's safe to say the basement of our building is CREEPY!
