Restaurant Roundup: Return of the Bing Avalanche, breweries to host parties

B&G Milkway shops in the Sioux Falls area are bringing back Bing Avalanches on Friday. The ice cream treats were a big hit when they were introduced last summer. They feature pieces of Twin Bing candy bars, along with mixed nuts and the coating used for cherry and chocolate dipped cones to boost the flavor. This photo shows that last year’s run was limited, but they might be around until the end of the season this time.

Fuddruckers also is taking on new ice cream flavors. The restaurant on West 41st Street is making PB&J hand-spun shakes through Sept. 5. That sounds like a good combination for a burger special too.

Granite City Food & Brewery is stacking up the parties Friday. There’s a tapping event from 4 to 6 p.m. for the newest release in the Cellar Room Series – the Watermelon IPA. The storm-postponed Family Fun Night will be from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. The event features carnival games with prizes for adults and kids, face painting, blindfolded beer tasting, snow cones and a live DJ. For every adult entree purchased, one child can eat for free.

Granite City also has released its JUL-IPA seasonal menu featuring Boom Chicka-Wow Cauliflower & Wings, a crab cake BLT, steak and focaccia salad, and the Fried Chicken Picnic – a buttermilk fried boneless chicken breast with curried macaroni and cheese, and herb roasted potato salad.

IHOP is celebrating its 60th anniversary of making pancakes with 60-cent short stacks from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. July 17. Sioux Falls once had locations on the east and west sides of town. The remaining restaurant is on 41st Street west of Interstate 29.

This anniversary mark isn’t quite as long. Remedy Brewing Co. is celebrating one year in business. The locally owned brewery is selling “golden tickets” in advance of its anniversary party July 20. For $35, beer drinkers will get an anniversary glass and a 22-ounce bottle of Remedy’s first barrel-aged beer. BA Mashina is a smoked Baltic porter aged in Buffalo Trace bourbon barrels. Holders of the golden tickets, which are limited to 150, also will have a chance to win prizes at the patio party, which runs from 6 to 11 p.m. and is open to everyone. Mashina and glasses will be sold that night, along with other special one-off beers. There will be live music and free mini cupcakes made with the anniversary beer by Smallcakes Cupcakery & Creamery. The brewery is along the boardwalk at the 8th & Railroad Center at 421 E. Eighth St.

Lobsterfest is gone, and Crabfest is back at Red Lobster. New menu items this year include a combo that pairs more than a pound of jumbo snow crab legs with wild-caught Dungeness crab. Other additions are crab-topped tilapia and crab-topped stuffed shrimp with a salmon filet.
