Broken Arrow Café owners Eben and Tessa Hill are hoping for the safe return of a 6-by-10-foot utility trailer that was stolen from their Route 2 parking area near Apple Island Resort in South Hero last week.

"Someone just drove away with it," Tessa tells Seven Days. The vehicle can be identified by orange lettering that says "TES" on its lower right-hand side. Fortunately, Hill adds, "They didn't drive off with our food truck." That means, despite losing a refrigerator, umbrellas, signage and other equipment, Broken Arrow will open this weekend for the summer as planned.

Seen the trailer or have a tip on its whereabouts? Reach Eben Hill at 777-5327.

In White River Junction, Big Fatty's BBQ has long boasted one of the finest beer lists in the area. Last week, the smoke shack upped the ante with a shiny new 20-draft Crowler Pit retail space, which features Vermont brews in 32-ounce cans from Foley Brothers, Burlington Beer, Bent Hill, Zero Gravity, Goodwater and Idletyme, among others.

On the other side of the wall, the restaurant has increased its drafts from eight to 20; the current list features brews from Hill Farmstead, Upper Pass Beer and Lost Nation, among others. "We have a few duplicates [between the crowlers and the restaurant bar]," says server Rebecca Hilton, "but they're mostly different."
