LAKELY LOVES... Hmong Cuisine

Join us as Chef Nathan Berg gets out of the driver’s seat and hands the wheel over to Lakely cook Tony Moua. Tony will be preparing a six-course dinner that will feature a number of traditional Hmong dishes, some just slightly tweaked to accommodate the ingredients available here in western Wisconsin. The impetus for this dinner was a dish Tony created for our anniversary dinner last October, in which he made a traditional larb salad, but replaced the toasted rice with our local wild rice and replaced the standard ocean fish with whitefish from these parts. That dish was so incredible that we (well, Jorja) thought it was worthy of exploring this concept as a full-fledged Lakely Loves... We all expect to learn a lot about Hmong food traditions, while also discovering ways in which we can put a local twist on these foods to create dishes that can honor both Hmong heritage AND our local foodshed. And what better time than June, when local greens and vegetables are popping out of the ground in full force? The bar will also be whipping up a few speciality cocktails/beverages for the evening that will focus heavily on the flavors featured in Hmong cuisine. This is definitely a one-of-a-kind (first of its kind?) dining experience that we’re incredibly excited to offer! We’re already about 75% booked so if you want to get in, you’d better hurry and call  for your reservations soon! 

$60 per person // please call 715.839.0601 for reservations

GALLERY FRIDAY: Nickel&Rose + Jerrika Mighelle

Nickel&Rose is an American folk-music duo made up of Upright Bassist Johanna Rose and Guitarist Carl Nichols. They formed in the summer of 2016 and spent their first winter and the following spring traveling Europe, playing dozens of shows in France, Czech Republic, Germany, Romania, Poland, and Ukraine. While in Berlin they recorded their EP, Oh Sweet Love, released in April 2017. Oh Sweet Love, is a sweet-sounding auditory souvenir of Nichols’ and Rose’s four month European journey and a recorded testament to the two-piece’s ability to turn tough times into something vibrant with help from a traveling companion. 

Nickel&Rose have influences that span the spectrum of American music. Carl’s background brings elements of West African music and Blues while Johanna brings her experience playing Bluegrass, Folk and Jazz. From loss to heart break to love, Nickel&Rose address the human experience with gentle harmonies and soul stirring cries. With a shared appreciation for traditional music and a desire to break rules, the two have have created a unique sound that embodies Americana's past and future.

A failed move to New York and new love was just the existential dilemma Minnesota's Nick Elstad needed to give life to his indie dream pop project, Sleeping Jesus. 2016 saw the release of the Perennial EP, a hazy and sweet four song journey of young love and the beautiful foolishness that accompanies it. The now five piece group went from basement to the main stage at First Avenue in one short year, picked as one of the best new bands of Minneapolis in 2016.

GALLERY SHOW: Dead Horses
Sep

8:00 PM20:00

GALLERY SHOW: Dead Horses

At fifteen, Dead Horses frontwoman Sarah Vos’ world turned upside down. Raised in a strict, fundamentalist home, Vos lost everything when she and her family were expelled from the rural Wisconsin church where her father had long served as pastor. What happened next is the story of Dead Horses’ stunning new album, ‘My Mother the Moon,” a record full of trauma and triumph, despair and hope, pain and resilience.

Blending elements of traditional roots with contemporary indie folk, the album is both familiar and unexpected, unflinchingly honest in its portrayal of modern American life, yet optimistic in its unshakable faith in brighter days to come. Earthy and organic, Vos’ songs often reveal themselves to be exercises in empathy and outreach; she writes not only to find meaning in the struggles she’s endured, but also to embrace kindred souls on their own personal journeys of self-discovery. As much as the album is a reckoning with the past and everything she witnessed growing up (mental illness, poverty, addiction, and violence), it’s also an effort to shape the future, to build a community based around art and love and beauty and acceptance, a community to replace the one she was so brusquely robbed of as a child.
