Saturday, July 16th: Gilligan's Tiki Bar, Chetek, 2 pm to 6 pm
If you haven't made Gilligan's a regular stop on your summertime fun schedule, shame on you! Talk about a little of everything! A nice long dock so you can float right on up if you like ... Wisconsin's largest sandbox for the kids to build castles while you sit under an umbrella a few feet away enjoying a summer beverage and some of that WICKED delicious food. Play a little beanbag toss while 40 Fingers entertains you with our fun and family friendly music. We're happiest when people are dancing, but if you're busy enjoying everything Gilligan's has to offer, we're okay with that.
Sunday, July 17th: Jake's Supper Club Tiki Bar, Menomonie, 2 pm to 6 pm
Cheese curds, prime bites, Jake's Burgers to enjoy ... century old oak trees to relax under ... Beatles, Stones, Eagles, Bob Seger, Linda Ronstadt to dance to ... Summertime in Wisconsin is hard to beat!

Saturday, August 6th: Gilligan's Tiki Bar, Chetek, 2 pm to 6 pm
BONUS! Eau Claire Memorial and North High Schools class of 1974 will be having a 60th Birthday Party at Gilligan's while the band is playing. If you know an Old Abe or a Husky from '74, be sure to spread the word. Click here for more information. Better throw a lawn chair in the trunk for this one.
Saturday, August 13th: Big Swede's Resort on Lake Holcombe. 5 pm to 9 pm.
You just can't help but have a good time at Big Swede's. The lake is right there, everyone raves about the food, bartenders are quick to get you taken care of, it's a resort-slash-vacation kind of atmosphere, Sue and her staff are the nicest folks you're ever going to meet ... picnic tables, huge shade trees, sand volleyball ... what's not to love!?
Friday, August 19th: Mark and Susan are celebrating their first anniversary!
Has it been a year already?? Time sure flies! Sounds like a good time is going to be had by all and we're delighted to be part of it.
Saturday, August 20th: Munson Bridge Winery in Withee, WI. 6 pm to 10 pm.
What a diamond in the rough! Wine tasting, delicious dipping oils, gift shop, a tree swing by the pond, the biggest tent you've ever seen, covering lots and lots of seating, dance floor and, of course, your favorite band. If you haven't been to Munson Bridge yet, this is an excellent time to start your relationship with them. Only an hour down the road from Eau Claire.
