New Rumors Roadhouse owners looking to revive bar through great music and food

PLYMOUTH — "Not only did I buy a bar in a pandemic, but I bought a bar with no liquor license."

It was a leap of faith when Jeanette Scott purchased and opened Rumors Roadhouse, but her vision of what it could be could not be anymore clear.

Scott, a native of southeast Wisconsin, teamed up with musician Brad Campbell, and the two are looking to revive the bar and grill to its former glory by doing what they do best.

Live music

"There's a huge amount of musical history here," Scott explained. "There's a great many of artists that have come through here. Cheap Trick, when they were doing road tours, would come here, and the local big guys Sunblind Lion, this was a regular gig for them. They actually live around here still, so not only is there a bunch of musical history, but it's just surrounded by people that are very much in tune with the musical world. it was just a perfect fit for us to take over."

Low and slow barbecue

Campbell's musical abilities are not the only skill he brings to Rumors. He turned a fun hobby and passion into an outstanding barbecue menu. It's highlights include brisket smoked for 18 hours and ribs smoked for 12.

The history of the building

"When it was built, it was rumored to be a speakeasy and a gambling hall. There's a lot of rumors around the property itself so everybody has their couple of cents to add in there," Scott said.

FRCC now allowing spectators: Here's how the Sheboygan Area School District is managing spectator guidelines

SHEBOYGAN — Last week, the Fox River Classic Conference began allowing a limited number of spectators for winter sports competitions.

Sheboygan Area School District Activities Director Chris Hein gave us a quick look inside how the district is handling winter sports spectators.

The FRCC has decided to allow two spectators per athlete. How is this being tracked?

Hein: "Athletes provide us with the names of the two family members that will be attending the game that night. We check in those family members at a designation entrance when they arrive no earlier than 15 minutes before game time."
