Calgary Eagle Inc.

Finger licking treats

Food Review by M. Zelda (From GayCalgary® Magazine, December 2003, page 23)

Located at 424A 8th Avenue SE.

When you go to Calgary Eagle Inc., be prepared to get your fingers sticky. Calgary’s leather-fetish bar offers up finger licking treats – at reasonable prices.

For a snack, Calgary Eagle Inc. serves up munchies like homemade personal pizzas, nachos, and Eagle Poppers, and on occasion, incredibly tasty honey garlic chicken wings made with the chef’s personal recipe.

The starters – salad or soup – come in Boy or Sir size to accommodate any appetite.

For main meals, the choices include smokies, chilli, chicken pot pie, and veggie curry pie. I chose the one of the most popular menu items – Bones – their large beef ribs because they came highly recommended.

The beef ribs came with my choice of pasta green salad – or both. I picked the pasta salad and was pleasantly surprised by the firm noodles and the flavourful dressing. The beef bones were tender and juicy with a succulent sauce. It was easy to understand why this is one of the most popular items on the menu.

Once a month, the Calgary Eagle Inc. offers a homemade Sunday dinner for just $10. In the summer, they might serve big hamburgers or have a pig roast. In November, it was ham and scalloped potatoes. December’s Sunday dinner will be extra special, however.

The third Sunday of December – December 21, 2003 – the second annual Orphans’ Christmas will be held, starting at 4:00 pm. This event was designed for people who don’t have family. And, for many of the participants, it is their big Christmas party. For only $15, participants will receive a full traditional turkey dinner with homemade Christmas sweets – cake and cookies. Also included in the price is a gift. Everyone in attendance will be able to participate in a Chinese Christmas gift exchange. Gifts that aren’t kept will go to the Calgary Drop-In Centre. This year about 40-45 people are expected.

Also this December, be sure to buy the annual SHARP calendar. Proceeds from this $15 black and white calendar go towards housing for individuals with HIV.(GC)
