Weekend Roundup September 10-12
Posted by Rockford Buzz
Posted on September 10, 2021
Ladies and gentlemen…the weekend. Rockford is excited to present some amazing activities for you all (as usual)! This weekend you can show off your thumb wrestling skills at 5Bar, honor and remember 9/11 with The Pomodoro, and ride your bike on an empty Second St! There are so many great events to pick from this weekend! Let us know what activities you filled your weekend with!
On Friday at 8:00 pm, 5Bar is hosting a Thumb Wrestling Tournament! So Stretch out those thumbs, eat some protein, and prepare to dominate your opponent…well your opponent’s thumb. The tournament is FREE, and 5Bar is giving away prizes for first place (obviously) AND the best-dressed thumb! So you don’t necessarily have to have the beefiest thumb in the 815 to win; you can also win if your thumb is a fashionista! Don’t miss it! Plus, you and your winning thumb can enjoy a fancy drink together afterward!
On Saturday at 11:00 am, The Pomodoro would like to honor first responders for the 20th anniversary of 9/11 with a free lunch! Show your military, police department, fire department, or first responder I.D. and enjoy one of their favorites: Fettuccine Alfredo or Rigatoni Pomodoro with a choice of soup or house salad on the house. They will be serving between 11 AM and 4 PM for dine-in only. But even if you aren’t a first responder, head to The Pomodoro to help honor and remember the brave men and women who risked or lost their lives on 9/11.
On Sunday at 8:00 am, join Rocktown Adventures for Cycle on Second! This is the third annual Cycle on Second event presented by Crimson Valley Landscaping! This awesome biking event means you get a few hours to ride your bike on a street normally dominated by cars! Ride car-free on southbound N 2nd Street between Auburn and State Street from 8 - 10 a.m.
These are only a few of the awesome activities and events going on in Rockford this weekend, so make sure you check out https://rockfordbuzz.com/events for more!
