February Provides...Happenings at Flying Squirrel

Hello to all,It seems this February everyone is ready for a pick-me-up. The light is returning, there is lots of snow for playing outside, and we need to shake off our winter blues, stand up and DO something. Plenty to do in Talkeetna and at the Squirrel, we sure hope you'll swing by...

Second Saturday Art Opening
Saturday, February 11, 3-5pm

You still have a week or so to check out Jake Graupmann's photographs! On February 11 we welcome back local artist and musician Steve Durr for an exhibit of his new paintings. Durr's work will be on display until early April.

He Said. She Said. Valentine's Dinner
Tuesday, February 14, 6:30pm

Same ingredients. Two menus. Lots of laughter. Maybe we’re all a bit more alike than we thought. Or not. Join us for a delicious dinner, libations and some serious silliness. One seating, call for reservations 733-6887. $75 per couple includes 4 course dinner and some pretty silly entertainment. Anything for a bit of levity these days!

Sunday Extended Hours!
More light and more snow means more Sunday afternoon activity. We are extending hours and will now be open from 10am-5pm on Sundays. You will now have an extra hour to pick up your favorite Oatmeal Sandwich Loaf, a few fresh bagels, a donut muffin or come in for an après ski hot cocoa and ruggelach! The remaining hours will stay the same - Wednesday/Thursday: 8am-5pm and Friday/Saturday 8am-9pm.

Someone once said "there's no such thing as bad press" but we'll sure take all the good press we can get! Edible Alaska did a nice write up about eating out in Talkeetna during the winter and featured Flying Squirrel and the attention we pay to locally sourced ingredients! And, if you haven't seen it already, check out this fabulous article in The Frontiersman which shows off some of our favorite things about the Squirrel - wood fired pizza, our family farm connection, great coffee, outstanding cheesecake and so much more. Kudos to the Squirrel's small winter staff that takes such care delivering deliciousness with a smile to our dedicated customers - Sierra, Rachel, Kimmie and Tamara! photo by Mary Lockman

Summer Employment Opportunities

So that means bakers, cooks/prep cooks, front counter/baristas, servers and dishwashers. This year we are working on housing assistance for folks coming from out of state!
