A couple of quick notes for you Eagle foodies. First, The Griddle in Eagle will start serving dinner Wednesday, Nov. 18. The menu is described as a list of "from-scratch" home-style dinners like beef stroganoff, southern fried chicken and chicken-fried steak. All entrees are less than $10 and are served with very traditional sides. Mashed potatoes and a dinner roll, anyone? The Griddle, 177 E. Eagle River St., Eagle, 208-939-9070, thegriddle.com.
Also Wednesday, Nov. 18, Bella Aquila hosts fellow Eaglite, Woodriver Cellars, for a winemakers dinner featuring six of the winery's offerings.
