June 4: Galena to host its First Food Truck Fight®

Over the past decade, we've seen the food cart go from simple offerings to evolving into hot dogs to taco carts to the all-out gourmet battle. Today, the typical food truck has everything from fancy ethnic and fusion cuisine to wood-fired pizza and rotisserie chicken to tricked-out cupcakes and ice cream and everything in-between.

My wife and I like to get out and hike... A LOT. And why not, it's good for you and you get to experience the world around you. This weekends trip was no exception. It's a blast to get out and enjoy all the awesome things that changing seasons bring. We're now fully into spring weather, and only summer heat can make these flowers pop even more at the Dubuque Arboretum and Botanical Gardens. Take a stroll with me through Marshall park and enjoy the sites of early spring in our local Dubuque Arboretum.
