Tonight marks week three of Rockford City Market's 2020 season, and thanks to COVID-19, we haven't been able to enjoy it as much as we usually do.

Yes, it's great to get out of the house and pick up some local produce and other favorites, but not being able to sit down with a craft beer and delicious food while enjoying live music has been a bit of a bummer. Well, y'all ready for the good news? Booze is back tonight at Rockford City Market!

On Thursday Rockford City Market posted this great news on their Facebook, and to me it feels like a very good sign that "normal" life will be returning soon...

Ready for more good news?

Besides enjoying a beverage or two while relaxing under the Rockford City Market pavilion tonight, you will once again be able to stretch the fun down E State St. as well.

The City of Rockford announced Thursday;

In collaboration with the River District Association, we will again be closing sections of downtown streets this weekend to allow for more outdoor restaurant seating.

• The 200, 300, 400 and 500 blocks of E. State Street will be closed from 3 p.m. on Friday, June 19, to 8 a.m. on Sunday, June 21.

• Madison Street between E. State Street and Market Street will close at 4:15 p.m. on Friday, June 19, and will reopen at 8 a.m. on Saturday, June 20. That street will close again at 8 a.m. on Sunday, June 21, and will reopen at 2:30 p.m. that afternoon.

Whatever you choose to do this weekend, please be safe and support local businesses whenever possible! 😘
