Though the weather is a little on the cool side this week, it is a good time to enjoy an evening out. We have some fantastic music lined up for you on both Tuesday and Thursday at Ten Depot Street, as well as good drink and dinner specials.

Then on Thursday, Matt Cooper and Kit Garoutte will be entertaining you with jazz and Latin music. Garoutte, who grew up in La Grande in a musical family and has returned for various stints since then, is now living in White Salmon, WA, where he continues his career teaching, writing music and playing the guitar. And of course beloved and multi- talented EOU music professor Matt Cooper playing keyboards, will make this a night not to be missed.,
To go with all of this wonderful music try our Blue Plate Special this week, Cioppino, a seafood stew that originated in San Francisco with the Italian fishermen. One of our most popular Blue Plates, the seafood for each bowl is cooked to order in a delicious homemade broth.
We also have Morel Mushrooms, at least for the start of this week, as well as fresh Copper River Salmon and Alaskan Halibut.
