June 18, 2018
The week is starting out kind of gloomy but supposed to improve. It is good to have the rain. Whatever the weather, we have several good reasons to come out the Ten Depot Street this week.
Tuesday, June 19, Erika Litke is playing. Litke, who comes to us from the East Coast and now lives in LaGrande and works at Ten Depot, plays all original "street corner alternative." She has a great voice. It's worth getting out on Tuesday night just to hear her sing.
Then Thursday June 21, playing in the Ten Depot Bar is the Eastern Oregon band, The Right Reverend Smith and the Union Soul Orchestra, guaranteed to "move your hips and get you off of your chairs." This will be a fun evening and a great night to indulge in our Blue Plate Special this week is a delicious slow roasted Barbecued Pulled Pork Sandwich.
For other specials this week, starting Tuesday we are featuring Fresh Halibut with Dungeness Crab Stuffing and Grass-fed Sexton Ranch Lamb Chops.
Echo Ridge Cellars out of Echo, Oregon will be the next winery featured for Wine Tasting Wednesday at Ten Depot Street. On July 11, we will be tasting a 2013 Syrah, a 2015 red blend called Reponse, a 2017 Rose and a dessert wine which they call Arrete. We are currently working on the menu to go with the wines, which we will announce in the next column. Cost of the wine and food pairing is $30. Reservations can be made by by calling 541 963-8766.
