Local landscape architect Jens Jenson founded this folk art school in 1935 — as a place to reconnect with nature. Hands-on classes in painting, writing, birding, nature study, and paper arts are held in a peaceful, wooded setting.

inspired by the county, a friendly diner serves home-style meals, a coffee shop encourages visitors to linger, and an urban-style restaurant uses locally-grown ingredients and serves hand-crafted drinks. Hotels, resorts, cottages, and B&Bs are within walking distance to the village and shoreline.

The Mink is actually an estuary — river water mixing with lake water — one of the most pristine remaining. It begins in springfed wetlands just east of downtown Ellison Bay (unseen) and ends a few miles downstream at Rowleys Bay, where it meets Lake Michigan. Begin there, at Rowleys Bay Resort, put in a kayak and paddle your way into the quiet wonder.

Prohibition E nds In Ephraim

I

n the old days, the strongest beverage you could get in Ephraim was a cup of coffee. The “old days” ended this past April when Ephraim residents voted to allow the sale of beer and wine in their community. Ephraim prohibited the sale of alcohol for so long — 163 years in fact — that the ban became part of its identity. Believed to be the last dry community in the state of Wisconsin, Ephraim is home to several restaurants who stand to immediately benefit from this historic vote. In this charming lakeside village, meals and sunsets will no longer beg to be paired with a glass of wine or beer. —­by Larry Majewski

L ate Night Dining in DC

A

s you flip through these pages, cravings and hunger are sure to set in. But, keep in mind that the dining scene becomes trickier to navigate the later the evening becomes. An oft-told joke suggests that towns in Door County roll up their sidewalks after the sun sets. This is an exaggeration, but it is not uncommon for restaurants to start winding down as early as 8pm. Options are at their height in July and August, the “peak season.” Here are some suggestions on where to find late night dining options. After 9pm, we recommend calling ahead. LATE Usually 9 pm, later on weekends Coyote Roadhouse Mike’s Port Pub The Bistro at Liberty Square Mr. Helsinki Grasse’s Grille Wickman House Husby’s Parador

LATER Usually Until 10pm JJ’s La Puerta Mink River Basin

Summer Kitchen Fish Creek Grill

EVEN LATER Kitchen closes at 11pm year round Bayside Tavern LATEST The undisputed king of late night dining in Door County is AC Tap, located on Highway 57 north of downtown Baileys Harbor. “The Tap,” as it is affectionately referred to, serves from 11am to 2am year round. Between games of bar dice, patrons can enjoy an array of homemade soups, burgers, and sandwiches until bar time. Be sure to check the board behind the bar for the daily special. Last call at AC Tap means last call for drinks AND food.

On Deck Clothing Sets Sail For Its 30th Anniversary

T

op-Sider boat shoes. A striped Polo shirt. Seersucker shorts. Sunglasses. In Door County you don’t have to own a boat to look like you’ve anchored in the harbor. The water has always influenced the classic DC ‘look’, and for 30 years, On Deck Clothing Company has defined it. Owner Mitch Larson draws inspiration from Green Bay and Lake Michigan. “On Deck has always meant clothes to wear sailing and/or an active, outdoor lifestyle tied to the water.” When On Deck first opened its doors three decades ago, it was in a single location that carried a handful of product lines. With the addition of the new Sturgeon Bay On Deck Outlet, the retail operation now has four stores showcasing over 200 brands. The inventory runs the gamut from preppy to outdoor to boating. Conspicuously located on Third Avenue in Sturgeon Bay, the epicenter of Main Street in Fish Creek, and Highway 42 in uptown Sister Bay, On Deck is always a dock-line toss from the nearest harbor. On Deck is a beacon of four-season success in DC. Says Larson, “We love that we are a year-round operation and are only closed three days a year. It allows us to employ excellent, local staff.” Larson can trace his roots in Door County back to the late 1800s, when steamers were moored in the harbors. Larson’s lineage is dotted with entrepreneurs, and coincidentally, his great-grandmother ran a retail store in the same space that now houses the On Deck store in Sister Bay. Celebrate On Deck’s 30th anniversary in style— the DC boating and outdoor style, that is. —­by Larry Majewski doorcounty.net

Jane’s 20 Years of Fashion Forward Styles

D

etailed. Distinctive. Two words describing the fashions for women that have been part of the mix at Jane’s in Egg Harbor for 20 years. Determined. Focused. These are two words that describe store owner Jane Lautenbach. “It was always a dream of mine to have my own clothing store. After working for years in the restaurant business (family-owned Casey’s Inn, and later the English Inn), and working retail (Krueger Gifts in Sturgeon Bay, and J. Jeffrey Taylor in Fish Creek) I decided to open my own store. I have no regrets.” Jane’s is known for providing classic and unique clothing, jewelry and accessories, for locals and international travelers. Clothes you can take anywhere — and will garner you compliments, year after year. Longevity and Investment are two words to describe her main product lines. Art of Cloth, Staples, Habitat and Moonlight to name a few. The store is also known for customer service. If Jane doesn’t carry what you are seeking, she and her consultants will offer referrals and suggestions. Jane said, “This year will highlight more vibrant colors, going beyond the basic blacks and grays, in clothing, handbags, and accessories. I have a great staff, and great customers — especially my repeat customers — who have helped me keep my doors open all these years. I’m grateful for all of them. This May marks my store’s 20th Anniversary because of them.” 142

Bookstores Are Still Making A Difference

B

ookstores make vital contributions to their communities, serving as cultural contact points in the same way as venues for performing and visual arts. But unlike most theatres and museums, bookstores do not exist by the grace of benefactors. They must also compete and survive as businesses. It is a tricky tension and considerable challenge to strike the right balance between providing a place for people to interact with the world of literature, art, and ideas, while also contending with economic realities and an increasingly difficult marketplace. Bookselling has seen many tumultuous changes during my career. The Internet, big box outlets, and a shift to toward digital books have driven many good stores out of business. As venerable, long-established shops have closed around the country, they are mourned and eulogized with a sense of great loss. The entire landscape of bookselling has changed to the point that some people regard a bookstore as a novelty or complete anachronism. But in this interconnected world, bookstores still provide a unique experience ripe with the potential that you will encounter something entirely unexpected. A place where the casual remark of a complete stranger browsing the shelf next to you might introduce you to exactly the thing you were looking for, but didn’t realize. Searching through a carefully selected inventory of actual books — real objects that you can hold in your hand — provides promise and possibility in a way no algorithm could. So, while a bookstore is a business, it is also an experience beyond mere commerce, it is a storehouse and meeting place of our shared history and culture. This is what we strive to provide. — Peter Sloma

Peninsula’s Newest Non-Profit Inspires Everyone to Write and Share Their Stories

J

erod Santek brought the energy of a Jack Russell Terrier to the opening years of Write On, Door County. In the past year, almost 2,000 people of all ages have taken part in programs offered by the two-year-old nonprofit dedicated to promoting writing and reading. “Our mission is to inspire people to write and share their stories,” said Santek. “Our first printed course catalog for spring and summer includes 30 programs for all ages with a variety of ways to write, tell or share stories. From a two-hour class for beginning writers to families sharing stories around a campfire, Write On, Door County is reaching out to residents and visitors alike.” Family programs are free as are a variety of adult programs, such as writing labs and open mics. Weekend conferences aimed at both writers and readers as well as a week-long writing and yoga retreat serve those interested in a more in-depth experience. Opportunities for quiet reflection and inspiration abound on Write On’s 39-acre property in Juddville. The Coop, the writing studio of iconic Door County writer Norb Blei, is nestled in a grove of trees just south of the main Write On facility, which also serves as an artistic retreat for writers-in-residence to focus on their craft. Santek stops in a meadow on the edge of an old orchard. “Our first open house was held here. We had people as young as six and as old as 92 reading their own poems. One day, there will be a center here that will continue the creativity of all ages, year-round.” —Cindy Kraack doorcounty.net

Norbert Blei’s “Coop,” or writing studio, is now situated at Write On, Door County in Juddville


Norbert Blei’s “Coop” Has a Second Life

W

hen Door County writer Norbert Blei passed away in April 2013, he had no way to know that his iconic chicken coop, the center of his writing life for over 40 years, would go on to a life without him. Norbert Blei’s family donated the Coop to the Write On, Door County center for writers. After much volunteer effort and fundraising, the Coop moved to its new spot in 2014. It now stands sentry over his bevy of worn-out typewriters, arranged among the rocks outside. The strong aura of Blei’s presence is intact: to spend an hour writing at his table, watching out windows that framed the woods by his home near Europe Lake, is to easily tap into the spirit of “man (and woman) as writer.” Write On, Door County envisions the Coop as host to a wide number of activities, from solitary reflection to literary meetings to small classes inside its cedar-scented walls. A future class planned for the study of Blei’s work will soon gather there. Norb would never have wanted the Coop to become a museum piece, roped off and sequestered in silence; knowing that it continues to be a place of inspiration to writers would be an unending comfort to him. Those wishing to visit or use the Coop should call ahead (920868-1457); as long as there is no conflict with scheduled classes, the public is invited to use this treasured space. One does not need to be a Write On writing student – although doing so would enhance anyone’s time in the county. The organization’s expansive writing classes and other offerings can be found at: writeondoorcounty.org. Norbert Blei once reminded us to “Find me in my books.” The lovely serendipity is that one may also continue to find him now in The Coop. — Jude Genereaux doorcounty.net

Dog Rocks Stops Pet Urine Burn Marks on Green L awns ™

GOODBYE

Bacchus – kate rispens

The hot new pet product for 2016? It appears to be “Dog Rocks.” Place the contents of a pack of Dog Rocks into your pet’s water bowl and fill it with two liters of water. Your lawn – and your neighbors’ lawns – will start to look greener and fresher. Dog Rocks are made from a naturally-occurring paramagnetic igneous rock that works like a sponge, absorbing excess nitrates and other trace elements from your dog’s water. It not only gives your dog a cleaner, healthier source of water supply, it stops pet urine burn marks, as it is largely an overdose of nitrates that can kill or ruin healthy green grass.

Door County Arts in the ’70s

I

n 1970, art teacher Julia Van Roo Bresnahan first visited the Door Peninsula and discovered the heady influx of artists who had settled here. Meeting Anne Haberland (nee Emerson) of Edgewood Orchard Gallery, she met artists Madeline Tourtelot, Tom Uttech, Bob Pum, Narendra Patel, potters Kash Yamada, Bruce Grimes, and Abe Cohn (and his dancing wife Ginka). These times were expansive and exciting, luring potters John Dietrich, Thor and Judy Thoreson, and David and Jeanne Aurelius to Ellison Bay, and famed writer Norbert Blei to Europe Lake. Painters Charles Peterson, Gerhard Miller, James Ingwersen, the Topelmanns, Phil Austin and Jack Anderson arrived, even as jewelers Amanda and Tom DeWitt and carpenter Ernie Anderson also settled in northern Door. An art teacher in the Whitefish Bay schools, Julia returned each summer, ultimately buying a DC residence in1976. She began teaching at Peninsula School of Art in 1980, then later at The Clearing Folk Art School. Retiring in 2001, she has now settled permanently, teaching and refining her skills as a highly-regarded artist. The specialized art of painting icons became her passion via the Waseda Gallery at St. Joseph Formation Center in Baileys Harbor. Bresnahan said she “becomes so deeply contemplative that it’s hard to work on an icon alone, so I often take one to work at open studio where a similar vibe happens.” The history of DC’s early artistic personalities of the 1960s and ’70s can be found in rare copies of the books RESUME I and II and Lorraine Mengert’s Door County’s Art History. Paul Burton’s recent biography of Peninsula School of Art founder Madeline Tourtelot has further expanded our appreciation for this creative era of DC’s arts history. — Jude Genereaux doorcounty.net

Fine’s Line’s New Gallery Space: The 100-Foot Journey To Next Door

T

he 2015 season at Fine Line Designs Gallery in Ephraim had a little more anticipatory buzz than years prior. Certainly, there were new pieces by long-established artists like Pamela Murphy and Lyman Whitaker to look forward to. And as always, there would be new artists to discover. But the main event was the second gallery space that opened in July, in an existing structure next to the original Fine Line Designs. Fine Line owner Shari Gransee bought the charming, sylvan building in May 2014, not knowing exactly what she would do with it. Fine Line Designs has long had an extenShari Gransee in the new sion of its gallery outside— addition to Fine Line Designs Art Gallery a two-acre sculpture garden full of art made with stone, bronze, metal, ceramic, copper, and stainless steel. But it was apparent that the gallery needed more indoor wall display space, which would require another building. Working with friends and local craftsmen, Gransee set about creating a second 1,100 square foot gallery space distinct from the adjacent original gallery. The old garage- cum-woodworking shop- cum-new gallery is sparsely appointed on purpose, Gransee says, allowing patrons to step back and really soak up the art. As Mies Van Der Rohe once famously noted, “less is more.” Regardless, there’s 800 sq. feet of unused space in the back of the building...just in case the gallery needs to grow yet again. Fine Line Designs Gallery is located on the north edge of Ephraim at 10376 Highway 42. For more info, call 920-854-4343 or visit www.finelinedesignsgallery.com. 255 doorcounty.net

Exciting Developments at Northern Sky Theater Northern Sky Theater performs under starlit skies within Peninsula State Park during summer, and under the roof of Door Community Auditorium through the fall. Artistic Director Jeffrey Herbst shared some special news for 2016 with the Go! Guide that will make this an exceptionally ambitious season, including: • a world premiere musical, “Doctor! Doctor!” • a show by the group’s prolific writing team, Paul Libman and Dave Hudson • four shows on the summer stage, plus two shows for the fall season • readings and workshops of exciting new shows (including one by veteran writers Laurie Flanigan and James Valcq) • the purchase of a beautiful piece of property to house a new campus that will support all of the group’s work in the park. “There’s room enough to grow, beneath the Northern Sky.” — this lyric by Fred Alley truly sums up the excitement! — Casey Martin doorcounty.net

Peninsula Music Festival’s 64th Season Schumann. Enescu. Handel. Dvorak. Weber. Massenet. For more than 60 years, the works of these masters have been performed by the world- class musicians of Peninsula Music Festival. The 2016 season will present Boris Slutsky, Olga Kern, and Spencer Myer (piano); Denise Djokic and Nicholas Canellakis (cello); Igor Yuzefovich and Elena Urioste (violin); and Lura Johnson (harpsichord). Maestro Victor Yampolsky and PMF ’s emerging conductors program offer memorable programs in August. A three-week summer schedule of nine concerts includes an Accordion Concerto by Alexander Sevastian, and a Mostly Mozart Choral Concert (performed by the Peninsula Music Festival Chorus and the Madison Choral Project). This 64th season includes a dozen outstanding pieces never before performed at PMF, plus lots of favorites — many not heard for years. — Casey Martin 268


Rewind 97.7 Reformats From Country After nine years of country, radio station 97.7 FM has changed its format to Classic Hits — the top of the chart pop/rock favorites format the station dubs “Playing Door County’s Greatest Hits.” VP of Business Development at Door County Radio Group Jaime Forest noted “It’s not just the songs, what is played and talked about between the music also matters. We’ll feature news about non-profits and the community activities that we know are important to our listeners. They can tune in online at rewind977.com or at 97.7 FM on the dial. If we could have had another location on the airwaves to keep country in the mix, we would have. As ‘drive’ has gone away — and with so many stations already playing country — we know that this new classic hits format is the new trend.” — Casey Martin doorcounty.net

Find Yourself in Door County

W

e can all admit that life often feels maddeningly busy. Making time for oneself is a challenge. New Year resolutions, our to-do lists, making appointments, signing up for classes — why is it that our intention to take good care of ourselves tends to go on the back burner? What is the disconnect between knowing that we need to take good care of ourselves, and choosing not to do it? We struggle with this, and yet anyone who has been under the weather knows that good health is everything. So what do we do? If you’re on vacation you’ve already made yourself a priority. This is the perfect time to increase your self- care and put your health on the front burner. Start Writer Marise Redmann by finding a quiet place in one of DC’s many beautiful settings, turn off your cellphone and just sit and breathe. Sounds simple, yet we have become so plugged-in that we’re not even aware of how addicted we are to our devices. Take a gentle walk and stop to stretch now and again. Notice things in nature that delight you. Solitude is so important to finding the soul. As spiritual philosopher Wayne Dyer said, “Make peace with silence, and remind yourself that it is in this space that you’ll come to remember your spirit.” Take your self- care even further by scheduling a massage, manicure, pedicure or sauna. Once the ball is rolling why not take a yoga or meditation class? Door County is an incredibly healing place with many opportunities to find wellness — and really — your self. — Marise Redmann doorcounty.net
