First Friday (Sept. 7) @ J.R. Kortman...Britney Lindgren's iPod, Dennis Horton @ the Bar, plus Chinese Hats

    First of all, we would like to thank everyone for a fun and successful On The Waterfront weekend! However, if you didn’t come downtown for OTW, come down this First Friday evening (September 7) and stop by the store and relax upstairs over a refreshing drink from bar host Dennis Horton @ the Kortman Gallery Bar. And while in the gallery, you can see “Mao Zi: an exhibition of Chinese hats.” This show will run through the end of September. The hats, which are little collectable works of art, would also make great holiday gifts.
And to keep the party going, we are featuring cool music from the unedited playlist from the iPod of Britney Lindgren of Pirate Ninja Print Shop. Britney & Jarrod are a creative force in Downtown’s burgeoning cultural scene. Britney’s iPod will be played through a great sound system by Hear. More. Music.
And if you are still looking for more downtown fun...all during the day Saturday is the Screw City Beer Festival happening right here @ State & Main Street. J. R.Kortman is within festival grounds, so stop in if your attending the beer fest. Non-festival goers will still have access to our store. 
And next weekend (September 15 & 16) is the 64th annual Greenwich Village Art fair on the grounds of the Rockford Art Museum. We will be there with the Kortman Gallery “Point Lounge” serving our signature drinks...the Love Lemon & Sock Monkey martinis...for the benefit of RAM.
Hope we see you at all or one of these great events!
