Restaurant Roundup: Two dozen new doughnuts, two new hard ciders and one big eater

By Rosemary McCoy

You can get a free loaf of bread today, Thursday, Nov. 16, at either Breadsmith location in Sioux Falls. Breadsmith is partnering with The First National Bank in Sioux Falls to “pay it forward” in support of the bank’s KindnessFirst program. The limit is one loaf per customer, and the offer is good until the bread is gone. UPDATE AT 2:40 P.M.: Both locations are out of the loaves.

More free food! Get one of Hy-Vee’s new fried doughnuts and a cup of coffee from 7 to 8 a.m. Friday at any Hy-Vee location. What’s different? The bakery in each store is making them from scratch every day. The two dozen varieties range from traditional versions to others with toppings like bacon, fruit or cereal. Pull into the grocery pickup lane Friday to try one.

Strawbale Winery’s yearlong project has come to fruition. The winery north of Sioux Falls has added hard ciders to its lineup. One is made with Honeycrisp apples from Hoversten Orchards, and the other is made from pears. The winery introduced the hard ciders this week at Monks House of Ale Repute and is working to have them on tap at other locations. For now, they’re on tap at Monks and the winery.

A Minnesota man with a passion for eating enormous amounts of food while the clock is ticking is the first to tackle The Keg’s Yard Bird Challenge. Ethan Teske ate 5 pounds of food within the 45-minute limit at the West 12th Street restaurant. That’s 2 pounds of chicken, a pound of French fries and two pints of sides! Teske’s Facebook posts include photographs of him taking on several challenges, including one in Wisconsin that involved eating 10 eggs, eight pancakes, hash browns, three pieces of bacon, three pieces of sausage, a slice of ham and two slices of Texas toast. He conquered that challenge in 19 minutes.


If you’re a Sioux Falls Skyforce fan, head to Will’s Training Table to watch coverage of the games when the team is on the road. The restaurant at the Sanford Sports Complex is showing the games on a projector screen in the party room. The complex includes The Pentagon, which is the Skyforce’s home court. The next away game starts at 6 p.m. Nov. 24 in Grand Rapids, Mich.
