So far, it seems to be just a tease, but the Spiffy Fox Pizza and Pub shocked the social media savvy by announcing new things are on the horizon, including a 7 a.m. breakfast menu. As of this writing it has yet to be implemented, but we will keep our eyes peeled. We can report their newly expanded menu looks great with the latest salad and five new specialty pizzas.
Bay Bites Food Truck Festival nearing

Guido’s hosting wine dinner with Trione Vineyards
One way of dealing with that St. Paddy’s hangover is by getting right back in the saddle. Wednesday, March 18 couldn’t get you there any sooner as Guido’s of Daphne hosts their Trione Vineyards and Winery dinner. These five courses, prepared by chef-owner Kris Conlon, will be paired with a sauvignon blanc, chardonnay, pinot noir, zinfandel and a Domaine Rosier sparkling.
Expect a menu ranging from light to heavy with grilled melon and pork belly, West Indies stuffed avocado, an Italian sausage calzone and beef braciole (ribeye rolled around a filling of gorgonzola, caramelized onions and mushrooms). Wait for the dessert of candied tangerine cups with mousse over chocolate ganache.
Limited seating means you need to call today: 251-626-6082. Price is $60 per guest.
