 Street Sweeper is scheduled for the First Friday of every month- move your cars off the curb. Clean gutters = better drainage! Yes it is true… the rain will be going away. Go out and play!

We’ve all been to Stark’s Steakhouse and Seafood for dinner or their exceeding popular Happy Hour, right? There was a great article in the Bohemian about Mark and Terri Stark the people who renovated an old restaurant in the West End and made it something special- (not to mention a slew of their other popular restaurants). If you missed it- here’s the link.
