Tour de Roo 1 Year Anniversary

Wednesday, May 9, 2018 3:00 PM by Elizabeth Miller

It’s been one year since the RACVB team took our love for Beefaroo and created the Tour de Roo! That’s right. We mapped out all of the Beefaroo locations in the Rockford region and planned to visit all of them in one day. It’s crazy, I know…but we did it! In honor of its one-year anniversary, I’m going to give you the lowdown on what visiting all 7 Beefaroo locations in one day is like. (Spoiler alert: it’s epic.)

The Rockford IceHogs have rediscovered their stride at just the right moment as they secured their spot in the 2017-18 Calder Cup playoffs along with the Chicago Wolves, Grand Rapids Griffins and Manitoba Moose. With wins in six straight games and points in 16 of the last 19 contests since Feb. 24, the Hogs have leapt Iowa in the standings to clinch a place in the playoffs.

The Last Stretch of Winter

Monday, February 26, 2018 2:00 PM by Elizabeth Miller

The sun is out, the weather is warm, and spring is on the horizon! This happens every year, though. We have a couple days where the temperature is above 50 degrees, and we think "spring is here!"...but then it's back to 30 degrees and winter. But fear not! The Rockford region offers plenty of helpful ways to get you through this last bit of winter.

Pink in the Rink Night - Rockford IceHogs

Monday, January 29, 2018 1:00 PM by Tyler Yomantas

I have been to more Rockford IceHogs games in my life than I can recall. As a kid, I was brought along to these games on the weekends, often following my sister's hockey practice or games. So throughout the years, I have been on and off following the IceHogs and the Chicago Blackhawks. It wasn't until last season, and mostly this season, where I started paying a bit more attention to our local team. Attending multiple games this season, I can say this is a team worth watching. 

Go Go Rockford Go Guide

Friday, January 5, 2018 11:00 AM by Elizabeth Miller

I've designed several booklets while I was in college. Although I was really proud of each of those projects, there's only so many people who actually get to see all of your hard work...a.k.a. professors, classmates, and parents. So being the graphic designer of the RACVB's brand new Rockford Region Go Guide is a big deal for me because not only will my coworkers (and parents) see it, but hopefully so will the rest of the Rockford region and beyond!

Twinkling and Shining

Thursday, December 21, 2017 3:00 PM by Elizabeth Miller

One of my favorite parts of the holiday season is looking at all of the light displays throughout the city. I don't have to go far to see some spectacular displays...some of my neighbors REALLY get into the decorating spirit. But there are a few places I make sure I visit at least once before the holidays are done. If you have family in town and are looking for ways to "wow" them, it's guaranteed that a stop to one of these local light displays will be a shining success!

Shopping Rockford This Season

Thursday, December 14, 2017 4:00 PM by Elizabeth Miller

We’re less than two weeks away from Christmas so we’re down to crunch time for holiday shopping. My husband and my family are all really good at giving lists early so people have enough time to shop. And then there’s me. I’ll try to come up with a list, and eventually give up or get side tracked until I get asked again.
