We have some fun activities lined up for you this week at Ten Depot Street to add a little interest to a typical March weather week.
For music: Bart Budwig is playing Tuesday March 20. Bart who is currently from Enterprise, grew up in the Palouse country of Idaho and learned to play music from a pawnshop trumpet. Writing from the inspiration of the country he grew up in, he calls his music "Outlaw Americana."
Thursday March 22, we have the popular local band, Sum People, with Scott Nearing, Marshall Turner, Matt Hibbert, Kyle Swattz, and Kailey Van Ocker. Sum People play reggae, ska, funk and punk. Both nights the music starts at 8:00.
Wednesday, March 21, we are holding another Wine Tasting Wednesday. This time we will be tasting four wines from the Copper Belt Winery located 25 miles from Baker City. Each wine will be paired with a small course prepared by our chef. Winemaker Travis Cook and his wife will be here to tell us about their winery and their wines. The cost is $25 for the wines and food. Make reservations at 541 963-8766.
Our Blue Plate Special this week is one of our all time favorites Cioppino. Cioppino is a seafood stew created by Italian fishermen in San Francisco, who made stew from whatever they had caught that day. The seafood is cooked in a rich seasoned broth with tomatoes, onions, garlic and white wine. There are many variations on this recipe, but our version is made with clams, scallops, shrimp, and cod. Each bowl is cooked quickly to order, so that the seafood remains flavorful. Great with sour dough bread!
