Libations – Traditions

Most countries have rituals and festivities to celebrate the end of a year or of an era. The Dutch people from Holland have several such joys.

"If, When and Why Not?" — Joseph Boer of The Blue Heron

The highlight of a trip or an evening at the Lake of the Ozarks is enjoying a gastronomic event. Many visitors and fortunate locals repose at The Blue Heron with its majestic view from the veranda at twilight, and of course, with its restaurateur, Joseph Hendrikus Boer. Joseph invites his guests in and shares stories about food, wine and spirits. He also attends to guest details. Joseph has worked to not only perfect delicious entrées, but also to make memories for his customers that last a lifetime. His sharing of life’s advice recently earned him a Missouri House of Representatives Resolution. His insightful conversation with a state representative’s two college-age daughters highlighted always telling the truth, and to never lie, cheat or steal. He shares this same advice with his new employees.
