Optimists hear from new owner of Water Street Social Club


New owner of the former Blue Spoon/Jaybird Cafe, Jesse Steinberg, informed the Sauk Prairie Optimists about his new business, the Water Street Social Club on March 3. Formerly the co-owner of the Red Rooster in Madison, he sold his share to his former business partner. Hoping to open in the Spring, he plans on hours from 4-8 p.m. initially, Tuesdays through Saturdays. He plans on having music two to three times per week, including bands on Saturday nights. A stage is being built as part of the renovations of the interior. A Trivia Night is in the plans as well. The “back room” will become a speakeasy with comfortable seating and a relaxed atmosphere with low lighting. Eventually, he plans on having a bakery area to the right as one enters. Plans to have small plates, pastas, salads, cheese boards, soups and casseroles for purchase are in the works. Steinberg has met with other businesses in the community to get a reading on their thoughts and suggestions as well. Employment applications are online at waterstreetsocialclub.com and over 40 people have applied as of March 3. Steinberg is also a UW Philosophy professor and has two young children. He is looking forward to becoming part of the community. The Sauk Prairie Optimists meet on the first and third Wednesdays of the month at 7 a.m. at the 6:8 Inc. dining room at 821 Industry Rd. in Sauk City. When there is a fifth Wednesday, they meet at noon at the Sauk Prairie School District Board meeting room. All are invited to attend. There are speakers at each meeting. The speakers in April will be foreign exchange students from Sauk Prairie High School.

Logan Magnuson is April Student of the Month


Logan Magnuson, son of Kristin and Daniel Magnuson, is the Sauk Prairie High School April 2024 Student of the Month. Magnuson is passionate about creating community and helping others to be involved. As Matt Brennan, Sauk Prairie High School vocal teacher, states: “Logan Magnuson may be the kindest person at Sauk Prairie High School, staff included. He has taken leadership roles and handled them with extreme care and while he has high standards, he meets his students and makes them feel great about the learning they are doing. Logan was head of our drumline, our set player for both varsity show choirs, and now a lead in our spring musical. I continue to be impressed with his learning.” “Besides his outstanding work in the music department, Logan has been involved with volunteering and being active at a variety of schools throughout the district. He volunteers as a student intern in two different schools and also works in the Afterschool Club. In whatever he does, he strives to be a positive and inspiring role model to younger students. He especially appreciates the work of the Sources of Strength program throughout the district. Logan is a thoughtful young man with a bright future ahead of him.” Magnuson will attend University of Minnesota-Duluth in the fall and will major in Teaching Communication, Arts and Literature. He plans on entering the education field as a high school English teacher.
