Have you ever been to Egg Harbor on the 4th of July?

Have you ever been to Egg Harbor for the celebration?  It’s quite a party! There’s a parade Fireworks  Food And fun! And there’s lots more to do all throughout the County!  Egg Harbor’s fireworks are on the 3rd (as always) and the parade goes right past the Lull-Abi on the 4th. So come on up, I still have a few rooms left at the Lull-Abi, including those great single queen rooms with the balcony so you can sit and watch the parade go by.  There is a two night minimum for the holiday. Find your room right here and make an online reservation or give me a call...

What’s a pocket park?

As some of you know, I am once again Village trustee, and this tour of duty has me overseeing Parks and Public Works. Great gig! We decided to update some of the old benches and plantings downtown that had seen better days. So, we built 4 of these pocket parks. Construction is done, next step is adding flowers and color. Check them out next time you are in...

Sunsets in Door County, a perfect end to your day!

It always amazes me how beautiful the sunsets are in Door County. Here is a picture I took in 2010 at the  Egg Harbor marina. Sometimes I just walk down between rooms 7&8 for a quick sunset, a tip at the Lull-Abi is room 24 for sunset viewing off the deck.  Anyway, there are lots of places to watch sunsets here on the “bay side”, and here’s another video from my buddy Jon with some ideas! Enjoy the...

The Beer is Here!

At the Lull-Abi, it can sometimes get a little hectic, which sometimes calls for a beer.  Well, rather than being selfish, I decided to get a beer license a couple of years ago (interesting fact, Egg Harbor has more alcohol outlets per capita than any other community in the state of Wisconsin!) so I can sell beer to my guests. My buddy, Matt Bley from Kay Distributing, has helped me select some interesting Great Lakes area beers.  We now have: New Glarus Spotted Cow New Glarus Moon Man IPA New Glarus Two Women Lakefront Wavehopper Lakefront Boatilla Bells Amber Ale Lake Louis Scottish Ale And Coors Light for those who just want to wet their whistle! I have it warm and cold, and if you let me know when you make the reservation I’ll be sure to have a six-pack in your room fridge for only $10. Be sure to stop in and check it...

MacReady Artisan Bread…new to Egg Harbor

My buddy Mark stopped in today with a package under his arm and a grin on his face.  “Get a bread knife”, he told me.  So I did, and he pulls this beautiful loaf of fresh baked bread out of this bag, and cuts off a big chunk to try.  Turns out we have a new artisan bread bakery in the Village called  MacReady Artisan Bread, located in the former Cupola House Cafe building, right across the street from Parador restaurant, behind the Cupola House. Good stuff!  So, I headed down to check it out.  The bakery is owned by Michael and Jenny MacReady, they just opened today.  It’s a good selection of artisan breads, artisan cheeses, and ice cream.  Soon they will be making sandwiches, too. Stop in and check it out.  Here is their website ....

Some different choices for breakfast

I like breakfast, my favorite meal of the day..  My dad and grandpa were that way, too.  A nice leisurely breakfast, newspaper, cups of coffee, a friendly waitress to talk to.  There are a lot of great breakfasts in Door County, like the Village Cafe right next door.  But this post is about my favorite out of the way joints, and yes, that is a compliment to them!  Feel free to try one or two on your next trip! Remember, this is not an all inclusive list, just some places you might not find without a little help! Countryside Diner in Brussels- The hash brown sandwich is a reputation builder for this country diner on old Hwy 42 in Brussels.  Think of a square pile of hash browns with onions, peppers bacon, ham, and eggs.  But the trick is that all those goodies are cooked inside the hash browns, with the hash browns being the “bun”.  I have never been able to finish half of it! Morning Glory Hwy 57 Sturgeon Bay.  This is a place you would drive by.  It sits off the side of the highway across from the BP station on the south end of Sturgeon Bay.  Nothing fancy here!  But, this is a great, cheap breakfast, and it’s all locals.  Good food, lots of it. Corner Cafe Third Ave Sturgeon Bay-  Sally, the owner, had a restaurant by the shipyard called My Sister’s Cafe.  She closed it and moved to the former Pudgy Seagull right downtown on Third Av.  Same menu, same great prices.  The shipbuilders breakfast is great, and think about biscuits and gravy as two sausage,...

When was the last time you went to a real drive-in movie?

    As a kid growing up I always loved the drive-in.  My father had a penchant for Buick convertibles, big ones.  I remember this baby blue 1961 Electra 225 that he bought.  The family would go to the drive-in, and when we got there he would unzip the back window so my brother and I could sit on the back seat and look over the top to watch the movie. I’ve always enjoyed drive-ins, and we have a real live drive-in here in Door County.  Located on the north end of Fish Creek, it’s open from May through October, and in classic drive-in style it has a double feature all the time.  And these are first run movies, too.  So, here’s a quick video for you from my buddy Jon: Skyway...

Galileo’s Italian Food

  About 6 years ago, when I was Village President, Richard and Pam Wegner bought a kinda rundown building in Egg Harbor and remodeled it into Liberty Square.  It opened as a combination of shops and a great cafe called The Bistro.  Over the years they have continued to remodel and improve the location, and it’s now a great destination of merchandise, a deli/wine/cheese shop, and The Bistro serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. But there was always one part of the building that was hard to make something out of.  So, last year Pam and Dick opened up this wonderful “Italian Steakhouse” named Galileo’s.  “What’s an Italian steakhouse?”, you ask.  Well, it’s kinda Like Harry Caray’s in Chicago.  Great pastas, great steaks and chops, and a wonderful selection of wines by the glass and bottle.  They also have a full bar. Galileo’s was quite an undertaking.  First, the existing kitchen had to be remodeled and expanded, which meant moving walls.  The bar had to be built, and the decorations, which are very elaborate and detailed.  Oh yeah, and they had to figure out the menu, too! Let me tell you that the whole thing came together very well.  The final detail was that they hired a buddy of mine, Dale Kiehnau, to manage the bar.  For those of you familiar with Door County, Dale is the previous owner of the Pen Pub. So, now we have this great Italian restaurant, fun bartender, wonderful atmosphere, and it’s located right downtown.  They open May 18, and tomorrow is the private menu and wine tasting, which, of course, I will be attending.  Here’s the website and...

Opening Weekend in Door County!

Allrighty then!  While there is no “official” Door County opening weekend, this is it!  The county looks beautiful, we locals are optimistic, and today at about noon we are off and running! One of the good things about this weekend is friends opening their businesses.  I had breakfast this morning with Terry Bolin, the owner of Summertime restaurant in Fish Creek.  The nice thing about it was that it was at his restaurant ’cause he’s open!  Tom Young was there, too, and he’s opening Gibraltar Grille  today, Julie’s Cafe is open, Parador and Trio open this weekend, and my buddy Joe Smith opened a new gourmet hot dog and soft serve ice cream shop right downtown Egg Harbor.  It’s in the yellow building right across from Shipwrecked. Met Sarah Sawyer from the Egg Harbor Lodge there today, she also opened this weekend so my morning coffee stop is open. And of course, the Lull-Abi Inn is open, actually have quite a few check-ins this weekend.  C’mon...
