Garden City's newly opened Kilted Dragon Brewing announced it is hosting the Polar Bear Food Truck Frenzy Friday, Jan. 18, at 4 p.m. in its parking lot at 9115 W. Chinden Blvd., Ste. 107.

In addition to offering the brewery's Knuckle Dragger Porter, Wise Heff, Blue Steel IPA and Highland Honey, the event will also include hot grub from food trucks Saint Lawrence Gridiron, Archie's Place and P. Ditty's Wrap Wagon. Live music from string band Possum Livin' will fill the chilly air from 7-10:30 p.m., while artist Tony Adamson puts the finishing touches on a dragon mural.

And in other food truck news, Saint Lawrence Gridiron hosts its second pop-up dinner Saturday, Jan. 26, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at Payette Brewing Company. Dubbed Hens and Hogs, this dinner will feature a four-course "marriage of piggies and birdies," with four recommended Payette brews for $50 per person. Reservations are required and can be made by calling Brian Garrett at 208-830-7030 or emailing brian@slgridiron.com.

In dinner club news, Dishcrawl Boise presents its second downtown dinner tour Tuesday, Jan. 22, at 6:30 p.m. The November 2012 Dishcrawl event had diners snaking their way to four stops for eats: Bardenay, Shige Japanese Cusine, Saint Lawrence Gridiron and The Melting Pot. This month's lineup also includes four stops, which won't be revealed until two days before the event. But here's a teaser: Archie's Place will be a stop, according to the food truck's email blast.

Tickets are $39, not including drinks, and are available at dishcrawl.com/boise.

And a little further in the future, The Charm School recently announced it is organizing quarterly public dinners under the banner Feast Boise. According to a press release:

"The public is invited to attend, and will pay a sliding-scale entrance fee ($10 minimum) for which they will receive a delicious chef-made dinner and a ballot. During the meal, diners will be presented with 10 artist projects and asked to vote for the project they would like to see funded. At the end of dinner, the artist whose proposal receives the most votes will be awarded the funds collected at the door."

Feast is currently accepting one-page artist proposals for the first dinner, which takes place Wednesday, March 13, from 6-8 p.m. at the Visual Arts Collective.

The Charm School is a new local venture specializing in "events, workshops and consultations designed to empower individuals to do their best work." For more info, visit thecharmschool.org.
