What a relief to get some rain and cooler weather. Let's hope it will calm the forest fires, this week before the much anticipated Eclipse.
We in the restaurant business don't know quite what to expect for this week before the Eclipse. We are putting on extra help starting Thursday and stocking up on supplies and food. As a once in a lifetime event that is attracting people from all over the world, this will be interesting.
We have music both Tuesday and Thursday this week at Ten Depot Street:
Tuesday, August 15, Erika Litke who comes to us from the East Coast and fortunately for us now lives in LaGrande, is playing all original "street corner alternative." All who have listened to her say she is amazing.
Then Thursday, a rather interesting band from Portland called the Jack Maybe Project is playing. They specialize in "New Folk, Blues, Jazz, Classical and Experimental." Jack Maybe, who writes the music and sings, says that everything he has musically "goes into this project."
Friday night, August 18, is the "kick-off" for the Eastern Oregon Beer Festival, which takes place at the Union County Fair Grounds on Saturday the 19th. In the Ten Depot Street Bar on Friday night will be representatives from Terminal Gravity and Payette Brewing. Have a beer and meet the reps and find out about their beers. That's 6 pm on Friday.
For a Special Salad this week, Ten Depot Street will have a Blackened Salmon Salad made with strips of wild Alaskan salmon, on a bed of fresh greens, with artichoke hearts, hard-boiled egg, local cucumbers, and a creamy dill dressing. We are also using fresh local green beans and cucumbers on the Blue Plate Special.
