Belle Fourche Catholic and Methodist churches traditionally put on Biker Breakfasts - locals invited too - during Bike Week.
Methodist church "customers" this year will have something really, really different.
Music by a world-class musician. Call her a piano player or a pianist, Nina McInitire will be playing during the church breakfasts 7 to 10 a.m. through Aug. 10.
There's no extra charge for the music.
Nina married a Belle Fourche local; both are in Germany and she's continuing a career as a classical artist, a pop, ragtime and blues artist and even composer.
She's done piano concerts not just in the U.S., but also in Finland, Germany and her home country of Russia where she earned a master's degree from the Tchaikovsky Institute in Moscow. As a violinist - really her "main" instrument, she's played in Japan, Mexico and in many parts of Europe.

I've gotten to know Nina and husband Gary, and they're great folks.
The United Methodist Church is east on National Street from Highway 85, then south on Seventh Avenue. Their Biker Breakfast series runs Aug. 4 through 10 and includes biscuits and gravy, pancakes, sausage, fruit, scrambled eggs, coffee and juice.
St. Paul Catholic Church in Belle runs a little later in the morning.
The church is just east of U.S. Highway 85 on the Butte County Courthouse block. It plans its traditional Rally Week Breakfasts Aug. 5 through 11 from 7:30 a.m. to 11 a.m.
Items on the menu include biscuits and gravy, scrambled eggs, potatoes, pancakes, sausage, coffee and juice.
For what it's worth, I make a pilgrimage to both churches every year and the hospitality and chow is super. You'd be surprised at how many repeat customers make sure they breakfast at both churches every year.
