Food Truck Tuesdays at Golf Addiction are returning for another summer! The gatherings are every other Tuesday beginning May 15 and running until Sept. 19. In addition to a half-dozen food trucks, the event features live music and a free bouncy house for kids. Hours are 5 to 9 p.m. in the parking lot at Golf Addiction at 57th Street and Marion Road.

Olive Destination has started carrying a selection of cheeses from Cheese World at its location at 57th Street and Louise Avenue. The two stores are testing out the partnership with offerings that include cheddar, parmesan, goat cheese, smoked mozzarella string cheese and more.

While bars have used karaoke and dart leagues for years to draw in customers, entertainment offerings are expanding. Now, you can find trivia nights, pinball competitions and even yoga classes. Monks House of Ale Repute might have one of the more unusual offerings. The downtown bar on East Eighth Street is hosting square dancing lessons the first Wednesday night of the month starting April 4. No partner or experience is needed.

This Facebook post from the Black Angus Steakhouse in Canton uses a stock image, but owner Sam Dethleusay expects to deliver a plate of food that’s just as mouth-watering. This weekend, Dethleusay is trying out tomahawk ribeyes — a basic ribeye with at least 5-inches of bone left in for the presentation. Black Angus will serve the 24-ounce slab of meat from 4:30 to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday. The tomahawk will come with a choice of potato, salad and a loaf of French bread for $30. If diners like the steaks, Dethleusay plans to bring them back.

Here’s an easy way to try the fresh fish at Dakota Seafood Market. The store in The Bridges at 57th serves fish and chips from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. every Friday and Saturday for carryout. This week, customers can get hake, which is a type of cod, fried in a Grain Belt beer batter. The fish will be served with a caper berry tartar sauce and fried fingerling potatoes. The type of fish changes with the weather; Dakota Seafood had been serving a traditional cod, but recent nor’easter storms limited that supply, said Travis Petersen, general manager. Halibut is coming into season, so that’s likely to make an appearance for lunch at some point. The market plans to do fish tacos starting in May and seafood boils in summer, Petersen said.

Red Lobster put its own spin on chicken and waffles for Lobsterfest. The restaurant’s newest addition to its special menu is lobster and waffles. But these aren’t typical waffles – they’re made with the same mix as Red Lobster’s legendary Cheddar Bay biscuits. They’re topped with a fried lobster tail and maple syrup. Lobsterfest ends April 22.

Finding sweets for Easter is easy, but this cupcake from Half Baked wins the super-adorable prize. The downtown bakery on Phillips Avenue will be selling them through Saturday.
