Molly and The Danger Band!
Well... That was fun! Thanks for one of the greatest nights in the little village. We can do it all over again on February 27. We've got a couple thousand skiers to serve these next few weeks and then we'll see you for an end of February celebration. Come enjoy the band and bring your friends. http://thedangerband.com/
*Planning your Birkie Week at The Rivers Eatery
Monday: closed for private parties (call to reserve your party)
Tuesday: closed for private parties (call to reserve your party)
Wednesday: 4:30 - 8:30
Thursday 11:30 - 8:30
Friday 11:30 - 8:30
Saturday 11:00 - 8:30
Planning hints: First of all, we seat 120 and we have excellent staff and plenty of them. On Saturday we serve a pizza per minute for 10 hours. Last year the pizzas were nearly all served within 30 minutes of the orders being placed. We have a rush at 6:30 but are quite slow from 4-6. The afternoon is a great pace. Friday is half as busy as Saturday and Thursday is half as busy as Friday. In fact our Thursday during Birkie was slower than our regular Thursdays. As in, we served less than 100 people. Go figure. Wednesday has been quiet the last couple of years. So, plan your week accordingly. We still vow to serve our great quality food in a timely manner during Birkie week. No shortcuts, just our same great menu and full selection of microbrews.
Outside Magazine's Nordic Mecca: Train like a Pro
What makes Cable so special are the amazing trails and those that groom them. Did you know we have dozens of miles of groomed single track fat bike trails and the greatest nordic skiing in America? Don't believe us? Just read Outside Magazine's Nordic Ski Mecca article referencing our very own Rivers Eatery as the place to be. http://www.outsideonline.com/1928796/america’s-nordic-skiing-meccas
Our goal is to serve quality food at a reasonable price in a timely manner.
Introducing $3 Wine Wednesdays!
Beginning December 9th, The Rivers Eatery will be open on Wednesday nights. Similar to our Thursday night River Pig and Spotted Cow $2 beers, we will offer $3 wines on Wine Wednesday at the Rivers. Additionally, we will offer 4 salads each Wednesday for those that are looking for a pizza alternative - Of course we will still offer our full menu of pizzas and appetizers.
As is the case with all of our marketing, we are using word of mouth as our primary communication method. Let's make $3 wine night as successful and fun as the $2 beer night. Ski, snowshoe, or ride your fatty, then stop by for a glass of wine and some conversation. Hope to see you Wednesdays starting December 9.

Rivers Eatery in the Media
Thanks for a great Summer!
Our 8th summer was a busy one. Ask anyone in the Cable Area and they will likely tell you this has been their best year ever - The Rivers Eatery included. Most businesses had their best Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day and every festival as well.
After a brief research trip in November, we will be back to what we hope will be the best ski season ever. We plan to add an additional day per week once the snow falls.
Until then, thanks to "the sneezers" - those that spread The Rivers Eatery and Ideal Market virus to their friends and family. We've enjoyed serving all of you. We've now served over 150,000 hand-stretched pizzas. Look below for a few of the accolades the Rivers Eatery has received in the media.
We see great things happening in the Cable area over the next few years and look forward to being an integral part of it. Thanks again and we look forward to seeing you soon!
