Restaurant Roundup: 300 seconds of free bundlets, ‘Game of Thrones’ invades Parker’s

April 4, 2019

Here’s your chance to get a free bundlet from Nothing Bundt Cakes. To celebrate the upcoming opening of its 300th store, the bakeries are giving away 300 Confetti bundlets for 300 seconds, starting at 3 p.m. Tuesday. The newest store will be in Jacksonville, Fla. The Sioux Falls bakery on the east side of the Western Mall was one of 55 bakeries to open last year. Two friends in Las Vegas founded the franchise in 1997.

The final season of “Game of Thrones” returns to HBO on April 14, so Parker’s Bistro is using the show for its First Friday theme this month. Friday night, the downtown restaurant will serve craft cocktails and small plates in addition to the regular menu. Two of the drinks are the White Walker and the Dragon Glass, both featuring the limited edition White Walker by Jonnie Walker blended scotch whisky. The appetizers are the Reek & Ramsay Sausage Plate, Pigeon Pie and Red Wedding Cake. Customers are encouraged to come in costume, and the staff will be dressed up, lead server Heidi Hansen said. The features will be available all evening.

Miner Brewing Co. will release Tapestry IPA on Saturday to help benefit the Pink Boots Society. The international collective of women in the brewing industry created Pink Boots Collaboration Brew Day to make a special beer in celebration of International Women’s Day on March 8. Miner’s head brewmaster, Sandi Voltja, and other women made the beer at the Hill City brewery. Miner’s Sioux Falls taproom is on the south side of the Western Mall.

Food & Wine has named the coffee at Coffea Roasterie as the state’s best for the second year in a row. “When you’re as far ahead of the game as South Dakota’s finest roasting operation (fine enough to net them a growing customer base, well beyond Sioux Falls), there has to be the temptation to take things easy, but apparently, the thought hasn’t yet crossed Bryan Kegley’s mind,” the magazine noted, pointing out the move of the roasting operation into the Louise Avenue coffee shop and the upcoming launch of the fourth site, which will be in Hotel Phillips. See the full list here.

The Co-op Natural Foods is opening two hours earlier every day. The new hours also are easy to remember. The health food grocery store at 18th and Minnesota is open daily from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Zaroty Pizza Kitchen is no longer open on Sundays so staff members can spend time with family. The catering operation also is closed that day. Hours are 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday. The restaurant at 41st and Marion serves Italian and Mediterranean food.
