It’s that time of year again when the leaves begin to change and the cooler weather sets in. The biggest disappointment for me is the loss of outdoor concerts. Last weekend I spent one last afternoon dancing and having a blast in the sun, while listening to the 40 Fingers band perform one last outdoor show.
The venue I spent the day at was, Jake’s Supper Club, in Menomonie, Wisconsin. Jake’s is great because they have a tiki bar out back with several levels of seating that overlook the water. They have tables with umbrellas that overlook a dance floor which is in front of their outdoor music stage.
Jake’s hosts bands through out the summer on a regular basis. You can order food inside the restaurant or outside from the convenience of your umbrella table. The food is excellent. I love the cheese curds and the fried mushrooms. They also have Prime Bites, which I know are a favorite of certain 40 Fingers band members. Aside from their appetizers, they have many other wonderful menu options. The menu does change some seasonally.
The wait staff at Jake’s is great. They will stop by your table and check up on you and they are always quick to put in your order. The bartenders are also great, though it can take a while sometimes at the bar because Jake’s is usually pretty packed when the outdoor music season is in full swing.
Next summer if you are in the area, I highly recommend checking out Jake’s; you may just find a new favorite summer venue.
