Hope you all had an enjoyable Easter week-end.
For music on Tuesday this week, we have the return of EOU student Adam Lange with the Adam Lange Jazz Trio. Inspired by the likes of Thelonious Monk and John Coltrane, with a heavy emphasis on improvisation, this trio brings a fresh perspective to familiar jazz standards.
Then on Thursday, April 25, The Mutineers are playing. The Mutineers describe their music as country/folk/Americana/punk. Originally from Santa Barbara, California, the band is now based in Portland. They travel extensively throughout the Northwest playing what they call a mix of
scrappy, stein-swinging anthems, peppered with a few slow tracks. Should be great fun. Both nights the music starts at 8:00.
And for interesting food items this week, we have Fanny Bay Oysters on the Half-Shell from British Columbia. Fanny Bay is known for its oysters. We couldn't get the Willapa Bay Oysters last week, so we decided to try the oysters from Fanny Bay. They are equally good.
We are also now getting fresh greens from Nella Mae's Farm which we are using in our salads and for specials. Soon she will be selling fresh greens at the Farmers Market
And we have fresh sole for our Blue Plate Special this week. We are also using delicious Oregon Bay shrimp in the stuffing.
We are getting great reviews from the Elgin Opera House production of Mama Mia which runs through May 5, starring some of our favorite performers, so don't miss this one. Many theater goers are enjoying dinner at Ten Depot before heading out to Elgin.
