Door County Beer Festivals Announced!

Looks like Door County will be having two beer festivals this year!  If you’re a beer drinker (and I am!)  that’s great news.  The first festival, The Door County Beer Festival will be held in Baileys Harbor June 16, 2012.  This will be the county’s first beer festival. “The Door County Beer Festival is about good beer, good food, good music and good fun! It’s an event for beer lovers and foodies – and it’s a showcase for those who appreciate the craft of making great beer. We’ll be bringing you a half dozen seminars on beer, cheese, local food, and putting them all together. Plus, there will be great live music and the best in locally-sourced food available from local producers and restaurants.” The website is right here, you can also purchase tickets at this site.  Looks like fun! The second beer festival is the Egg Harbor Ale Fest, planned for Sept 22, 2012 right here in Egg Harbor.  Details will be coming soon!  Look for great Octoberfest beers from Wisconsin’s premier craft breweries. There ya go, beer drinkers and foodies…two great new festivals this...

Is there any good radio in Door County?

Well, as a matter of fact, there is!!!  About 3 years ago a new radio station was built with studios in Ephraim…FM 106.9 The Lodge.  Having grown up in the late 60’s and early 70’s I pretty much hate FM radio because it is so tightly formatted.  I remember the old days of listening to KQRS all night long while working night stock at the Target store in West St. Paul.  The music was fantastic, they even played local bands.  I remember how disappointed I was when KQ became a formatted classic rock station in 1977, and I haven’t listened since. Ahh, but I digress.  Anyway, this radio station goes on the air about three years ago, and the music is good, no, very good.  It’s not formatted, the announcers are real, and it’s a Door County station with Door County news and attitude.  I don’t like every song, but that’s the nature of independent radio.  It’s really a good station, locally produced, locally owned.  It’s a true Door County business. The cool thing about it is the owners, Mike and Carrie.  Great people!  While I try not to be a nuisance, I occasionally drop in to the studio to say hi and of course, talk to Mike about some artist I have heard, then go bother Carrie for a while because she makes me laugh! Since you are reading this you are somehow a fan of Door County, so be sure to listen when you are here at 106.9.  And, you can go to http://www.fm1069thelodge.com/home.cfm to listen at your desk or smartphone.  It’ll put you in a Door County...

Dailey and Vincent…never heard of ’em!

So, it appears everyone is all excited (a-twitter?) about this group called Dailey and Vincent.  So it turns out this guys are a big deal. Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent became the most heralded new act in bluegrass as their debut albumDailey & Vincent (2008) and busy tour schedule introduced them to wildly appreciative audiences.  The group took home seven awards at the 2008 International Bluegrass Music Awards Show, including Entertainer of the Year and Album of the Year. Brothers from Different Mothers presents the band at a level of synergy that only comes from constant live performing.  It exudes the enthusiasm of a venture still fresh for all its participants.  Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent have been bluegrass musicians throughout their careers and never depart from that core sensibility onBrothers from Different Mothers.  But, like the earliest icons, they also push the bluegrass envelope. Best of all, they’ve found the closest thing to brotherhood - a true musical partnership. Now, I like bluegrass, but other than an occasional listen to Steve Martin’s band I really don’t follow it.  So here’s a video I found http://youtu.be/1wDRSpwXIn0.   So why am I going on about this duo?  Well, thanks to a generous donation, Dailey and Vincent will be playing at the Peg Egan Center in Egg Harbor on Sunday July 29th for free…yup, no admission.  Stay at the Lull-Abi Inn and walk to the concert.  Should be a great...

Dan Hicks and The Hot Licks? July 15th!!!

As part of the 2012 season at the Peg Egan Center in Egg Harbor (located within walking distance of the Lull-Abi) there will be a great show by Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks.  Oh c’mon…you remember Dan Hicks! “Singer-songwriter Dan Hicks is truly an American original. Since the early 1960s, Hicks has deftly blended elements of Swing, Jazz, Folk and Country music to create the appealing sound he sometimes calls “Folk Jazz” The lyrics of his songs range from the simply sublime to the sublimely ridiculous, all presented with his uniquely skewed and inscrutable touch. Dan’s irresistible sense of rhythm, hip lyrical styling, laid-back vocalizing, and infamous on-stage wit will make most who listen fans for life. He’s a snappy dresser, too.” Check out some of his performances at http://www.danhicks.net/ Now, about the concert.  It will be held Sunday July 15 at the Egan Center on Church Street.  Admission is free, bring lawn chairs and picnic goodies.  And, Dan and the band will be staying at the Lull-Abi that evening, so why don’t you plan to do the same!? This will be...

The Village Cafe in Egg Harbor…THE spot for breakfast!

When you come back from your Door County vacation, your friends will most likely ask you two questions-Did you have a fish boil, and did you eat breakfast at that little cafe in Egg Harbor? That little cafe in Egg Harbor is the Village Cafe, and it is located right next door to the Lull-Abi Inn. I don’t mean right next door as in Best Buy/Home Depot/Target, I mean right next door as in you can smell the homemade granola baking! This place is great, I just finished breakfast there and my tummy is seriously happy! The menu is varied, with the usual eggs bacon and toast stuff all the way to cherry stuffed french toast. And, remember when cafes made fluffy omelettes in a pan, not flat eggs on a grille? Well, that’s the way they do it here, and they are delicious. There is a pancake special everyday, a quiche special, and a coffee cake special. As a note, the coffee cake is enough to feed a small army. They also serve lunch, with great burgers and sandwiches in addition to the breakfast menu, and during the season they are also open for dinner. They have beer and wine available, too. The Village cafe also has stuff…art, ceramics, knick knacks, all displayed throughout and all for sale, so if you are a shopper person you need to check it out. So be sure to stop at the Village Cafe when you are staying at the Lull-Abi Inn, you will love...
