A First...

This weekend we're featuring a fish we've never before served at the Rookery.

Found in southern hemisphere waters of the Indo-Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, King Clip live  in rocky areas near the bottom of the seabed at depths of 125 to more than 3,200 feet. They can  grow up to six  feet long and weigh up to 50 pounds. Sporting a long, slender,  e el-like  shape,  King Clip actually are more closely related to codfish. They have a  firm, dense flesh that comes off in loose flakes, with a flavor that is described as sweet, delicate and mild.

The King Clip we're serving this weekend at the Rookery were line caught off the North Island of New Zealand (where they're more commonly known as Ling). These New Zealand fish have Marine Stewardship Council certification, the global gold standard for sustainability.

The initial reviews from our guests who ordered Chef Tim's delicious preparation of King Clip last evening were overwhelmingly positive. Come taste for yourself. After all, where else do you think you'll be able to sample King Clip around these parts?

...And A Last

This Sunday is your final opportunity this year to enjoy live outdoor music at the Rookery. And what a day we have in store for our season finale!

First off, it's looking as though the weather is gonna be downright gorgeous. All the clouds, rain, and wind of the past week should finally give way to mostly sunny skies, calm conditions, and temperatures in the upper 60s. Plus the fall colors are really starting to pop. What more could you ask for?

Well, how about one of the most popular acts to take our stage each summer?

If you're a regular visitor to Bayfield's Lake Superior Big Top Chautaqua you'll no doubt recognize the name, T. Bruce Bowers...the talented fiddle player for the Blue Canvas Orchestra, the Chautauqua house band. Ric Gillman is an amazing 6 and 12 string guitarist from Madeline Island who has recorded, played, and toured with some of the music industry's best regional and national talents. Together they comprise Barefoot Wonder, two of northern Wisconsin's most accomplished musicians.

These guys are good! And not only will you marvel at their deft fingers, their witty banter will help keep you smiling all afternoon. It's a wonderful way to wrap up another great season of live outdoor music at the Rookery. We hope you'll join us!

Barefoot Wonder
