Dining | Food Matters: Sweet Tomatoes, Red Rock, Strange Sushi & St. Paddy’s at The Blue Boar

Robert Heinlein often said that there’s no such thing as a free lunch. Perhaps not, but there is such a thing as free breakfast. On Sunday, March 30, from 9 a.m. till noon, Sweet Tomatoes restaurants will give free breakfasts to kids 12 and under who bring a new item of children’s clothing (with tags attached) to a Sweet Tomatoes location. The clothing is being collected for donation to Kids in Distressed Situations (K.I.D.S.), which provides clothing and other items to approximately 4 million children in need. For more information, go to SweetTomatoes.com or KidsDonations.org

 Congrats to Red Rock Brewing Company for winning Salt Lake magazine’s 2008 Brewpub of the Year award. “This is our first Dining Award from Salt Lake, and we are excited to receive this honor,” states Red Rock operating partner Eric Dunlap. Red Rock is located at 200 W. 254 South in Salt Lake City and at 1640 W. Redstone Center Dr. in Park City, or visit online at RedRockBrewing.com

Sushi in strange places: Aloha Island Style Sushi—home of the Maui Wowie Stogie, Blow Torch Salmon and Surfer’s Revenge rolls—is now available at a number of local Maverik stores, including the Park City Maverik. Chef Billy Z. even makes that particular delivery himself, not via his beloved bamboo bike but by a new fleet of refrigerated delivery trucks. Orders over $100 are delivered free. By the way, says Billy Z., “We do weddings as long as we’re not the groom.” 336 W. 300 South, phone 801-DA-BEACH, AlohaIslandStyleSushi.com.

St. Paddy’s in Midway: The Blue Boar Inn & Restaurant will offer a special St. Patrick’s Day menu March 14-17 featuring traditional Irish fare including corned beef and cabbage, smoked salmon chowder, grilled leg of lamb, pheasant stew, Irish soda bread and shepherd’s pie. For dessert, there’s Guinness-chocolate cheesecake. Phone 888-650-1400 or visit TheBlueBoarInn.com

Quote of the week: Candy Corn is the only candy in the history of America that’s never been advertised. And there’s a reason. All of the candy corn that was ever made was made in 1911. —Lewis Black
