The GOODS from Bells and Whistles

The full slate of action on tap at Bells and Whistles this fall includes the following:
BIG-SCREEN MOVIES, NIGHTLY NHL ACTION

Other new food additions include the Fall Fling salad (butter lettuce, arugula, green apple, toasted hazelnuts, dates, pumpkin seeds, pecorino romano, lemon vinaigrette) and two new sundaes featuring real-milk, Foothills Creamery soft serve: the Southern Dandy (vanilla soft serve, buttered pecans, waffle bits, iced tea crystals) and the Rocky Roadhouse (chocolate soft serve, pretzels, Skor bits and marshmallows).
