I remember living in a small town of 1,200 people being jealous that folks in a bigger city could get pizza delivered to them.

Then I moved to a bigger city and enjoyed the delivery of pizza & Chinese food any chance I could get.

Soon, I got jaded and wished someone could just bring me some junk food or beer.  I guess it's because I got fat & lazy from all the pizza and Chinese food delivery. I dreamed of a day where I could call a taxi service that would transport me some beef jerky or Jolt Cola.

Then that day arrived when DoorDash or Uber Eats would do just that.  But unfortunately I moved to a small town again and have yet to take advantage of this service.

But other people have been. DoorDash has released a list of the Top 10 things we order from convenience stores late at night. Chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream is #1. (Which is hard to argue with.) Lemon-lime soda is second, followed by: Mac and cheese bites . . . peanut butter cups . . . energy drinks . . . sour cream and onion potato chips . . . sour gummy worms . . . beef jerky . . . frosted mini donuts . . . and pickle bites.

Overall, the top five foods we ordered on DoorDash are: French fries, chicken nuggets, gyro bowls, "create your own pizzas," and cheesesteak.

(DoorDash has more stats from 2021, here.)

What would be on your top ten Door Dash list for 2021?  Beer & pizza would probably be on mine but now that gummies are legal in Illinois...

2022 is going to be an amazing year. Just look at this list of events coming to the Taxslayer Center. Things are just going to get better!

What The Quad Cities Did For Fun in the 90's

Many times over the years, I'll be talking with friends about years gone by and I'll say "take me back".

Every generation goes through this, I assume. Looking back at a more simple time where responsibilities haven't set in and life seems fun. Opportunities are endless.

Let's go back to the 1990's to Wacky Waters, 50 Cent Beer night and revisit Mallards Mania!
