The cozy interior of George Street Cafe, once known to locals as the Chatterhouse, makes it an ideal place to hang out for a drink or dinner, or munch on items from the lounge menu during the in-between times. Regular events include a rousing karaoke night, vinyl night, and ladies' night, as well as 35-cent wings every Tuesday. Customers can pair their snacks with a glass of wine, or a beer drawn from one of the lineup of taps along the bar. George Street Cafe welcomes family gatherings, private parties, and business meetings.
Servers pour 25 different wines by the glass to pair with artisan cheese plates and a rotating menu of local and seasonal foods. Panoramic views of Green Bay and surrounding nature preserves complement the fresh, seasonal entrees and house made desserts.
Taste of the South on Broadway transports the atmosphere of the French Quarter to Green Bay with Mardi Gras décor and a hearty menu whose seafood slips into frying pans and splashes into spicy gumbo. Gustatory gurus calibrate spice according to patrons’ requests, letting tongues fearlessly savor jambalaya and focus on a choice of five different cornbread flavors. Light yellow walls hung with paintings encircle diners as they nibble at meats such as barbecued ribs and fried chicken, sip the distilled essence of the South in sweet tea, and kiss frog legs in the hope of meeting a prince.
Karaoke tends to be a special event at many bars, but not at The Bluff Pub and Grille. Here karaoke is welcome any time a patron feels like crooning aloud a favorite song or a business rival?s credit card number on the restaurant?s TouchTunes machine. Professional musicians, meanwhile, often stop by in the summer to rock out on The Bluff?s deck, nestled beside stunning views of the bay. The culinary team takes full advantage of its water view location with plenty of tasty seafood options, including omelets filled with shrimp, crab, and house-made garlic-chive cream sauce. For dinner, chefs whip up everything from broasted chicken with house-made stuffing to handmade pizzas crowned with fixings such as jalape?os and sauerkraut.
Hosted by WBAY's chief meteorologist George Graphos and Frank Hermans of Let Me Be Frank Productions, Starstruck showcases talented local performers in “A Starry, Starry Night." Comprising horns, keyboards, and percussion, Bay City Swing accompanies performers, recalling that golden era of music before the Electric Slide squashed the jitterbug. Audiences can aim ears at St. Norbert College’s Knights on Broadway, an apple-cheeked band of student crooners that don fetching formalwear when oscillating between Broadway showstoppers and holiday ditties. The program features vocals from local talents such as Dino Biloti and Jennifer Stevens, a dulcet remedy for ears still ringing from that morning’s space-shuttle launch, as well as jazz clarinet from Kevin Van Ess of The Talk of the Town.
