DON’T YOU JUST LOVE GOING OUT FOR BREAKFAST?

Who doesn’t love to go out for breakfast when your on vacation?  I have my favorites that I thought I would share with you.

I always enjoy going to Al Johnson’s, not only for a wonderful breakfast, but to see the goats on the roof!  It’s a casual log-cabin eatery serving traditional Swedish fare at a very good price.  Al Johnsons is located in Sister Bay on Hwy.42.  

The Summer Kitchen is also a very special place for breakfast.  Located between Ephraim and Sister Bay on Hwy. 24, it’s Door County’s garden restaurant.  In addition to its extensive menu, the Summer Kitchen also serves authentic Mexican food.

White Gull Inn is another favorite of mine located on Main Street in Fish Creek.  The building has been around since the late 1800s.  It became an inn in 1972 and is open all year round.  It has very good food.  Well worth a trip!

Another great place for breakfast is the Old Post Office on Hwy. 42 in Ephraim.   A large menu, and very good with a water view.

If in Egg Harbor, the Village Cafe is a very unique place to have breakfast.  On top of a good breakfast that is served all day, you can take in all the local fair being sold throughout the building.  

The Buttercup in Egg Harbor is a great place for good coffee and a fantastic breakfast sandwich for people on the go.  It’s located in the Main Street shops on Hwy. 42.

The Blue Horse in Fish Creek is also a fun place to go.  One of the owners named their place Blue Horse because she painted a blue horse when she was eleven.  The painting is on the back wall.  They have a bakery and a very good menu.  It’s located on Hwy. 42 across from the beach.

Another good place for breakfast in Fish Creek is Pelletier’s.  It is located on Main Street in the heart of the shopping in Fish Creek.  Good food and good prices.  Well worth a visit!

Last but not least, Julie’s in Fish Creek is located right at the beginning of Peninsula State Park.  Good food for breakfast with traditional American fare.  

This makes me want breakfast.  I’m off to one of the fun places above, Bon Appetit!

ARE YOU UP FOR A GAME OF BINGO?

On Thursday, August 26,  the Kress Pavilion in Egg Harbor is putting on a Bingo event to help raise funds to restore the Bookmobile.  The doors open at 6pm, Bingo at 7pm.  This should be a fun event for all ages.  

I always loved playing Bingo.  Did you know Bingo got it’s start in the 1500s in Italy, originating from their traditional lottery game “Il Giuoco del Lott D’Italia”?  From there it moved to France in the late 1700s where it was called “Le Lotto”.  

In the early 1920s, Hugh J. Ward created and standardized the game at carnivals in and around Pittsburgh and Western Pennsylvania.  The game was further popularized by Edwin Lowe.  While at a carnival near Atlanta in December 1929, the toy merchandiser saw people playing a game call “Beano”.  Following Ward’s rules, they used dried beans, a rubber stamp, and cardboard sheets.  Edwin’s friends loved playing the game. The Lowe-produced Bingo game was created.  By the 1940s there were Bingo games throughout the US and the rest is history!

I hope to see you on the 26th for a good game of Bingo!
