Displaying Opening.jpg

We are so excited to report on our blog that the Grand Opening for Winemaker’s Daughter is Saturday March 14, 2015 at 11:00 a.m. This has been a long time coming, and if I feel that way, you know Jamie and Allen definitely feel that way. It started as an idea on a rambling weekend getaway. An idea was sparked, and ignited into a dream that is coming to fruition. Jamie Lane is indeed the Winemaker’s Daughter; her Father owns Munson Bridge Winery located in Withee, Wisconsin. “Dad is currently bottling wines for us, and eventually we will be bottling our own wines right here at Winemaker’s Daughter. We are starting off with 10 varieties and building from there. Our goal is to offer a casual environment with our tasting room where we will host cooking demos and other fun events. A wine tasting will include 5 wines. You may also enjoy an artisan cheese and charcuterie platter along with your wine. Winemaker’s Daughter is also offering craft beer; flavored olive oils and balsamic vinegars as well as Wisconsin made jellies and dips. It definitely has been a lot of fun and hard work getting to this point and meeting a lot of great people along the way. We are so excited to continue this journey here in Manawa with our business. Jamie and Allen would like to thank everyone who has given them positive comments and for the outpouring of friendship and kindness from the Manawa community as well as the businesses. You can find Winemaker’s Daughter on Facebook, on their website winemakersdaughter.com or reach them by phone at 920-596-2992.. Their hours of operation will be Fridays 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., Saturdays 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sundays 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Photo: Mark your calendar for Manawa's Fall Fest. It's sure to be a great time!

For those of you who may or may not know, The Wizard of Oz happens to be my favorite movie of all time.  So I was really excited to learn of the Fall Fest theme this year.  It will be up to you to decide if you see the Scarecrow, the Tin Man or the Lion, and if you see the Wicked Witch, keep it to yourself and any flying monkeys, your on  your own. What a wonderful story, where a young girl can get a bump on the head and wind up in a totally different place, and still find people who look out and care for her, and ultimately she learns that she could take care of herself all along, however it was more of an adventure with friends and family along for the journey, a great movie I tell you. Come downtown with your friends and family, lots of things to see at this years Fall Fest. There will be vendors in Lindsay Triangle as well as on 2nd Street. There will be music sponsored by St. Paul Lutheran Church by The King’s Countrymen http://kingscountrymen.com/kc/about.html. There will be City Wide Rummage throughout Manawa as well. The chili cook off will be in front of the Food Pantry on 2nd street this year, just around the corner from where it was held in front of Eastling Insurance last year.  The judging takes place at 11 a.m. and then after the winners are announced, the chili will be on sale for $1 per bowl, with the proceeds going to benefit the Manawa Food Pantry.  You will also be able to learn more about the Manawa Food Pantry (donations of non perishable food items are always welcome) and tour the  building as well.  You will find all sorts of goodies at the Fall Fest for sale, as well as music and pumpkin bowling for the munchkins.  Come out and see what the Fall Fest has to offer and support the events in your local area.

Chain O’ Lakes Blues Festival

Tuesday, September 11th, 2012

 

The Chain O’ Lakes Blues Festival is coming up on Friday, September 28th and Saturday, September 29th at the famous (or infamous, depending on your viewpoint) Indian Crossing Casino set on the shores of the beautiful Waupaca Chain O’ Lakes.

The Indian Crossing Casino is in its eighty eighth year, having opened as a dancing and entertainment “hot spot”  on July 4, 1925. Today, it is one of the most significant landmarks on Waupaca’s Chain O’ Lakes.Even with  changes in popular musical  over the decades,  big band to rock & roll,  the Casino’s interior has remained virtually the same. The large stage, the velvet stage curtains, and the original wooden dance floor still here as they were in 1925.

At that time, it was illegal to dance on Sundays in Waupaca County so folks quit dancing at midnight on Saturday night.  During WWII, programs for soldiers were featured, with 10 cent dances, three for a quarter. In 1930, there was the Battle of the Bands which was broadcast on WLS Radio in Chicago.

Some of the popular musical bands and entertainers featured at the Casino over the years included Glenn Miller, Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Jimmy Dorsey, Les Brown, Lawrence Welk, Beach Boys, Everly Brothers, Woody Herman, Neil Young, Bobby Vinton, Herman’s Hermits and Ricky Nelson, who shortly after appearing at the Casino, was killed in a plane crash.

The legend of the Indian Crossing Casino is still alive today, become  part of the history and join us at 2012 Chain O’ Lakes Blues Festival.  Your chance to see a beautiful area right here in Central Wisconsin…and enjoy the last blast of summer on the Chain O’ Lakes, with bands with some great names, Reverend Raven and the Chain Smokin’ Altar Boys, Big Mouth and the Power Tool Horns, Shaker and the egg…love it!  For other details check out http://www.waupacaareachamber.com/event/chain-o-lakes-blues-festival/

We have the best guests….Miss Symco Pinup Girls!!

Saturday, August 11th, 2012

We have just the best guests, meet Abby and Bre!  Friends getting ready for a night of fun at the Symco Shakedown 2012.  There is a Miss Symco Pinup contest that celebrates the era of the 1940’s and 50’s and that style.  The ladies come from everywhere and get their “glam” on for the contest, some don’t even enter the contest, just for the fun of dressing the part and it is just a guess but I get the sense there is a bit of a rock-a-billy vibe at the Shakedown as well.  The people who plan the Shakedown and all the volunteers that make it a success are to be commended.  People from many states and many walks of life come to the Shakedown to experience fun, catch up with old friends and most importantly see a lot of great rides.  So thank you to Abby and Bre for not only staying with us, but allowing us to take your photograph and make for a fun blog post!  To checkout more about the pinup contest, to purchase a pinup calendar or just find out more about a great hot rod show….head to www.symcoshakedown.com!

Lobsterfest

myLobster

 

So you have to admit, the thought of being able to attend Lobsterfest in a small town in Central Wisconsin, is a pretty unique thing.  Yes of course, we all know that there are other Lobsterfest’s around the country, and even national chain restaurants have them occasionally.  Shaunie B’s,  in Ogdensburg ( affectionately called “The Burg” in these parts) is going to be having their first annual Lobsterfest July 14th, from 4 p.m. to ?.  There will be live music, a corn roast, steak and the stars of the show, steamed and grilled fresh, whole, Maine lobsters and I am sure plenty of delicious, melted Wisconsin butter for dipping.  I will also say that Maine lobster is absolutely succulent and flavorful and just downright yummy, the thought of it is making my mouth water.  Enjoying it in a very relaxed and fun atmosphere is also part of the fun.  Bring your friends and come on out to Shaunie B’s on July 14th and relax with a lobster and a brew, and not necessarily in that order, after all this is Wisconsin!

*Contact them at 920-244-7816 ,they are located at 408 Main Street in Ogdensburg

 

Little Creek Music Festival

Thursday, June 7th, 2012

You have to love any event that is associated with the phrase “the music goes on forever, the party never ends”.  This is the mantra of the Little Creek Music Festival, this Saturday June 9, 2012, from Noon until Midnight.  See The Arkdale Ramblers, Loose Strings, The Heartland String Band, and of course my personal favorite, Horseshoes & Hand Grenades, which is such a great name and who else would or could put out their latest CD “Pig Tails and Coffin Nails”! Little Creek Music Festival is held at Steingraber’s Farms located at N7098 Bestul Road just outside Manawa.  Even some local favorites, Jeanne Bauer, Tammy Drath, Bourbon Creek, John & Cindy Evans. There is “rough camping” available for $5.00 per person, please call in advance if possible 920-596-3607/920-538-2072 or send an email to steinray@wolfnet.net.  Bring a chair, bring a friend to The Best Little Music Festival and enjoy some wonderful music and time to sit and enjoy the beauty of Central Wisconsin.

Pink tulips

Crosscut Solutions Greenhouse at E5763 County  Rd B, just outside Manawa,  is having a “Plant Pink” event, I participated in this event last year and what a great time.  Planting flowers, which in my humble opinion is way more fun than weeding! I was able to meet and visit with people that I don’t get the opportunity very often to meet and visit with, and owner Amy Starr is always ready with a friendly smile, and that this is an event that benefits breast cancer research is a bonus.  So give Amy a call at Crosscut Solutions at 920-596-2330 and sign up, it will give you a chance to take a breather and make yourself or someone you love a beautiful pot of flowers, and you get your name in a drawing for a hanging basket, what’s not to love about that!

Sign up now to support breast cancer research and go home with a pot of pink flowers!!
