Drive Thru Dinner Fundraisers


Dinner conundrum? Problem solved. A few local organizations are serving up the goods at their fundraising dinners this week offering a variety of choices. It's eats made easy, folks — delicious, nutritious and you don't even have to get out of your car.

The Rotary Club of Southwest Eureka is grilling plump bratwursts for The Best of the Wurst - A Drive-by Bratwurst Dinner on Thursday, March 25 from 5 to 7 p.m. at The Lodge on Herrick Avenue in Eureka ($25). Drive in and they’ll bring out to your car a hearty dinner of brats, hot potato salad, sauerkraut and a pretzel. Credit or debit only. Get tickets at or onsite when picking up. Guten appetit!

Additionally, you can order pakoras (fried veggie balls), $5; deep fried curry shiitake mushrooms, $5; pumpkin curry soup, $5; coconut vegan rice pudding with rose water, $4; and mango lassi (yogurt smoothie), $5.  Yum. The spice is right. Just drive up and order.
