Anders Osborne is one of my all-time favorite New Orleans musicians. He has a song entitled, “Summertime in New Orleans.” Take a listen here. I’m reminded of this song as it’s like a summer NOLA day here in Bellevue. We’re delighted to have cold beverages and cool Blues! We have Bridget Kelly Band tonight and Hotel Blue Band tomorrow night. Both shows at 8 PM. Call for reservations! 563-872-3838.
Happy Spring and all that comes with it! Today, we posted a detour on our Facebook page because Potter Drive is under water for the undetermined future. There are also detour signs posted in town.
As another public service announcement, we’d like to share that thus far, our business model has been to sell enough food to pay for the cost of the bands. We recognize The Jimmys are incredibly popular and hope you will still plan to dine and attend the show March 30 even if you are dining in an adjacent dining room. This is a fundraiser as well, so we hope the fact that we don’t charge a cover charge will allow patrons to support the band and Puppy Jake Foundation. Let the good times roll!
Stay tuned for announcements about Easter specials. The kitchen is making plans for deliciousness :)
It’s not too often that we see a 73 degree temperature swing inside of 48 hours…in early February…in Iowa. We are happy to inform you we survived the polar plunge er vortex without any frozen pipes and just a few hairy moments!
A Corner to Fill is having a SALE on DeBrock Galleria items. Come check us out on 3rd floor. We’re open 10 AM-5 PM Fri-Sat-Sun. Tonight’s band is none other than the wonderful Hal Reed & Mississippi Journey from the Quad Cities. Showtime is 8 PM.
Our Saturday night special, Prime Rib, is getting ready to go on the smoker for it’s finishing touches. Yum!
Whether the weather, we hope to see you soon, friends.
Well, I finally buckled down and added a bunch of dates to our Music & Events Calendar. Check out all the great acts that are coming to Flatted Fifth. There are a number of new jazz bands coming through as well. Such talent! Plus, we’re starting to add other types of events too, like painting and jewelry-making.
Potter’s Mill: Centered on the Arts.
Or snowy musings on a Saturday…
As Midwesterners, we deal with snow. It actually is art, isn’t it? This is the first significant snow here in Bellevue this winter, so it’s a bit overdue. No matter. We are thrilled the snow plows have rearranged this “art” into lovely trails for our cars to follow their way to the Mill. Our band from Chicago is on their way. We’re looking forward to serving up some outstanding grub for your bellies and music for your souls. Remember, A Corner to Fill gallery and coffee is open Fri-Sun 10 AM-5 PM too!
Keep real. Keep warm.
1/19/19: It’s always good news when the snowstorm finishes in time for the band to drive to our wonderful little town of Bellevue. Linsey Alexander is heading this way from Chicago. (Can’t keep a great Blues man down!). Showtime is still 8 PM. Hope to see you tonight! Call for a table reservation in the main room: 563-872-3838.
Well, winter finally has shown up here in Iowa, and today’s snowstorm is preventing our band from getting here. Tonight’s show has been cancelled. However, we are more than happy to fill your bellies with some great grub!
It’s 2019, and we’re kicking off the new year with fresh ideas and initiatives here at Potter’s Mill!
First, let’s partake in a southern tradition for good luck. Our special today is Hoppin’ John, a savory dish of blackeyed peas and rice. Traditionally, it’s served with southern greens and corn bread. As the saying goes, Eat poor that day, eat rich the rest of the year. Rice for riches and peas for peace.
Today, New Year’s Day, is also a Tuesday, and we’re launching our Two Percent Tuesdays today! This year, we are supporting Puppy Jake Foundation by donating 2% of proceeds on Tuesdays. Puppy Jake Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonproﬁt organization dedicated to help wounded military veterans with the assistance of well-bred and professionally trained service dogs. Veterans’ injuries may be invisible such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or physical mobility impairments. The Foundation advocates for increased awareness and accessibility for those accompanied by a service dog in everyday situations. For more information, please visit: www.puppyjakefoundation.org
