images, refrigeration, new hours

Dan Walkner (image by Nate Walkner)
Here's the Flickr set for Dan Walkner's most excellent performance last night. I love the kind of blues rock that Dan plays. He's a heckuva good guitar player and has his Dad's (Bill) gift for good humor and banter with the audience. Bill sat in for a few tunes with him later in the evening and that was fun to see. It was a real fine evening. Dan's band, Clovis Mann, is playing Sunday afternoon (4pm) at the Waverly Inn and I wish we were going to be in town so we could see them, but we have to take our daughter Cheyenne to camp right in the afternoon.

The rest of the day was fairly trying though. First thing in the morning the beer and soda cooler broke down (again!) and so we unloaded everything, rearranged the kitchen fridge and then loaded everything into that. Then later in the day the kitchen fridge went on the fritz and so we unloaded that and rearranged the wine coolers and brought a small counter fridge up and reloaded everything again. The humidity yesterday was heavy and we were soaked and drained by the end of the night (mighty hard to get out of bed this morning).

Fortunately, Marty from Refrigeration Repair in Manitowoc was willing to come in around 8:30 last night (during Dan's performance no less) and sorted things out with the kitchen fridge. The guys at Refrigeration Repair have been simply fabulous with us. They come in as quickly as they can, assess the situation and do what needs to be done in a timely manner...they're efficient, concerned and fair priced and we use them every time we have refrigeration issues (which has been a number of times this past year). They get our business and our recommendation.

Marty from Refrigeration Repair saving the day
Starting next week Wednesday (July 23rd) we're going to change our hours of operation a bit. People have been "suggesting" (whining really) that we open on Mondays and Tuesdays, so we're going to give it a try and see how it goes. And, since we'll be adding a couple extra days we will then be closing earlier than we do now during the week...weekend hours will stay the same.

So, beginning Wednesday, July 23rd, the Stumpjack hours will be:

Monday-Thursday: 7am-4pm
Friday-Saturday: 7am-9pm
Sunday: 8:30am-1pm

Here's Nate's Flickr set of Dan (I co-opted a few for our set).
Here's another cool set of night shots from Nate of a few places around Two Rivers (Nate is the man...these have such a great ambiance and feel).

Thanks, Nate. Ditto from me to you (that is, concerning your photography and good humor).

So, how you all enjoying the summer hours? You sure looked happy in your little caravan, driving away at the end of the day yesterday. And of course we all went "Oh, cr@p. No cold coffee drink for us. Oh, well. We'll just have to console ourselves by having a brat at the bridge opening." You guys ROCK! ?Oh. Am I dating myself when I say that?
