Door County Happenings…

The season is finally here… most businesses and restaurants are open for business and waiting for visitors to arrive.  Egg Harbor boasts new welcome signs on the north and south ends of the village.  Here is Larry Desotelle who works for the Village of Egg Harbor, putting the finishing touches on one of the signs…

Polly and Don Helm have expanded Design Works, a division of Door County Nature Works. They were previously operating out of the back half of the Bay Wear building.  They will now occupy the entire building as Bay Wear has moved. They have even given the front of the building a makeover. Don and his dad are pretty well dressed painters if you ask me. Even with paint on their shirts, they look good…

Polly and Don are waiting for a new awning to bring the new look together. Nice. Design Works offers everything from carpet, tile, hardware and bedding to  furniture, an interior design. You name it they have it. They even have a commercial line for hotels and such. This is Polly in her new digs…

 

Check out both places… they have tons of really beautiful things and will help with any decorating needs.

Joe Smith, the manager at Shipwrecked Brew Pub has started a new venture…HOT DOGS!  Across the street from Shipwrecked in the yellow building is Fat Louie’s Olive Oil shop.  In the back you will find Joe and Megan making hot dogs, serving up soft serve ice cream and so much more…

I had a Junk Yard Dog today… yum.  Here is the menu… if you can read it.

Bruce Hill from the Lull-Abi was there too and he ordered a walking taco which looked to be an open bag of Frito’s, taco meat, cheese and sour cream.  It looked delicious!  All of the items will be great picnic fare for Harbor View Park located directly across the street.  Good Luck Joe!

The cherry blossoms and trillium are blooming as we speak.  The Door County Half Marathon takes place tomorrow at Peninsula State Park.  Our Nellie is running so Eric and I are heading over there with her to watch.  After that, Husby’s Food and Spirits will host live music (THE NICK’S!) and serve food outside at their Garage Bar.  I am sure my gang will be heading up that way. At 7pm the alt-rock band Cracker plays at the Door Community Auditorium.  The Sister Bay Bowl has classic rock band Bacchus Lotus beginning at 9:30 pm Saturday night.

Not for you, check out the Ship Yard Tours in Sturgeon Bay.  I would like to go since Mark works at Bay Shipbuilding who is part of the tour but it always falls on the marathon weekend…damn.

So much to do, so little time.  Lots more to come… stay tuned.
