They canceled Fiesta. They Canceled The Horribles Parade. So where can they not tell us what to do? Out on the water. Let’s gooooooo!!!!! Was it over when the Germans Bombed Pearl Harbor???

I know it’s not for a while, but I wanna get in front of this. The boats that have participated in the past have done an outstanding job and I’m tired of them having all the fun. This year lets make this year’s Boat Parade Of Lights Uuuuge!

Sinikka Nogelo, Painter

Sinikka mostly loves to paint, but also unleashes her expressionist soul when inspired by any manner of found object: she’s woven ryas, made sculpture from hangers, and wall pieces from recyclables. Watch an interview with the artist here

(Individual flowers bloom for (mostly) a day, but the one plant will produce hundreds of flowers over the season.) The large translucent blooms indeed blow, glow and grow.

The Rhumb Line is excited to reopen Wednesday, June 9th at 4pm!

Fly Amero will be kicking off our nightly 6-9pm live music schedule that evening. Check out our new website for our current menu and live music calendar at The Rhumb Line

The Rhumb Line

We will be closed for the time being on Mondays and Tuesdays. We will have full indoor bar and table seating and limited outdoor seating on our patio (weather permitting). We will reopen with a limited menu with all your favorites like burgers, brunch, French onion soup, nachos, shoestring fries, wings, Caesar salad and some specials (which will include fresh fish, steak, and a vegetarian/plant based item). Our full menu will be back soon!

We will have live music Thursday through Sunday. We are going to have a $5 per person entertainment charge–all of which will go directly to the musicians. While The Rhumb Line and other restaurants have suffered over the last 15 months, so have our musicians, so please come support them.

Our outside patio will be available for private parties as well as overflow. We won’t have table service out there for awhile, but you can order inside and take your food and drink outside.
All our staff is returning and are so excited to be BACK. 
Thank you for all of your support over the last 15 months. It has meant so much to us. We can’t wait to see everyone back at The Rhumb Line very soon!
