Eau Claire, WI  


This weekend we're pleased to be welcoming back to the Rookery's outdoor stage a performer who's been a real crowd pleaser here each of the past two summers.
Davey J is a 20-year veteran on the creative music scene in Wisconsin and Minnesota. His live shows feature down-home singing and songwriting and a very distinctive sound of acoustic-electric guitar that everyone in the house can feel. His musical repertoire ranges from blues to rock and roll, reggae, and roots music. As I recall Davey began his first set last summer with songs from the likes of Roy Orbison and by the end of the afternoon had segued all the way to Led Zeppelin!

Davey J performs all over Western Wisconsin, often with his blues-rock combo, The Jones Tones. Last year he released his fifth music CD, Visions: Vintage Tracks. In addition to his music gigs, Davey holds down a day job as Associate Professor of English & Women's Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.

As usual our patio grill fires up at 1:30 and the music begins at 2. All seating is first come first served, so be sure to arrive early to claim yours.



What's a Barramundi?


Australian barramundi is back at the Rookery for the first time in over a year. Each time we've featured it our guests have raved about the mild sweet taste of this firm white fish.


Barramundi is among the most popular fish served in Australian restaurants, kind of like walleye here in northern Wisconsin. Like walleye, barramundi belong to the perch family of fishes. They are native to the tropical waters of northern Australia, Southeast Asia and southern China. Large predators, barramundi can grow up to 120 pounds, feeding mainly on smaller fish and crustaceans. Sometimes called giant perch or silver jack, barramundi also are considered one of the most prized sport fish in Australia.

The barramundi featured at the Rookery are farm raised in Australia specifically for premium eating qualities, with firm white flesh, a mild flavor, and low oil content, yet high in healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Come discover for yourself why Australians are so high on this tasty member of the perch family.
