Fish Bowl - Throwback Series at Avenue Club and The Bubble Up Bar

Wednesday, August 16th

The Fish Boil began in Door County as an inexpensive way to feed a crew of hungry lumberjacks or fishermen, and lived on as a way to bring neighbors together in community. Today it’s not only an excuse for gathering over a cold beer; it’s an essential part of Wisconsin cuisine. But you don’t have to travel to Door County to partake in this classic event; we’ve got the fish and fixins—along with a cocktail or two—not far from a lake of our own.
