February News 2014

Hello All,
Despite the crazy April weather in January, the calendar still says February as far as I can tell. That being said, there's only so long we can all feel stuck inside. So, when you've dug out the appropriate footwear-of-the-day, whether ice cleats, rain boots, snowshoes or sandals, and you figure out how to get out of your driveway, we sure hope you'll stop by the Squirrel! Here are some February happenings...

Valentine's Dinner - Friday evening, February 14
This year we're having a 5-course fancy, but not too fancy, pairings dinner. Couples (or singles) will share appetizers, soup, salad, wood-fired pizza and dessert along with 4 beer or wine pairings. Live classical guitar music will accompany the dinner with our very own Ben Heller. Reservations are being accepted from 5:30pm until 8:30pm. The menu is available at the Squirrel counter if you want a preview. We also have special tickets to Complexities of Love if you want to combine dinner and a show! For more information or to make a reservation, call the Squirrel at 733-6887.

Art Opening - Student Show
Local painter Tony Crocetto has been teaching art classes through Alaska Folk School for several years. Some of his students will show what they've been learning for Flying Squirrel's February exhibit. The opening reception will be held Saturday, February 15 from 3-5pm (note that this is actually the 3rd Saturday in February). March will bring photography by Mark Westman. If you or someone you know would like to show art or photography at Flying Squirrel, we have openings beginning in May - contact me at the Squirrel any time.

Summer Employment Opportunities
It's already time to start thinking about summer! If you or someone you know is interested in working at Flying Squirrel this summer, get an application in early. We'll need bakers, cooks, barista/counter folks, and dishwashers. For more information or to get a hold of an application, please contact me by e-mail or stop in at the Squirrel.
