Achilles
    Animal Friends Humane Society
    "Hi everyone my name is Achilles! I am a 3 year old Pitbull looking for my furever home! I am a big boy with a big heart who is looking to share my love with the right family! I love to play in the doggie play yard with my favorite people and toys. I like to go walking, but be aware I like to pull. I LOVE treats to snack on while I get plenty of pets. I don’t prefer feline friends! I must meet any future canine siblings before going home to make sure we like to play together. Due to my energy levels I can’t go home with children 10 years old and younger so I don’t knock them over with all my kisses. Could I be your furry Valentine?"

Splinter
    Age: 12 Years / Breed: Yorkshire Terrier and Chihuahua Mix / Sex: Male / Rescue: PawPrints Animal Rescue
    "Hey, Splinter here!
    You are most probably wondering why a handsome 12 year old (estimated by our vet) guy like me is looking for a home. Well, here's my story. I came into the shelter after a really rough life, my owner did not have me neutered, my teeth were in horrible shape, my nails were super long, my skin was so itchy from flea bites that I scratched ALL the time, my tail bone was broken and I'd been shot with a BB. Whew! The worst part is I was dehydrated and emaciated 
    I was so happy when PawPrints Animal Rescue took me in and found a foster home for me and Boy has my life changed! Currently I live with my foster mom and her four senior dogs and let me tell you, Life is good! I've been neutered, had a dental and my itchy skin is healing nicely and now I'm ready to find a family of my own.
    I don't think I'd do well with young children or with high energy dogs because I have a sore back and the little ones and rambunctious dogs may unintentionally knock into me so I'm looking for someone who can be gentle with me. I love to cuddle but my forever family would have to make sure to lift me on and off the couch so I don't make my back sore again but don't worry, I weigh less than 6 pounds so lifting me would be a breeze! I know I'd make a great companion for an older person who's looking for an adorable lap dog!"

Pampas Argentine Gastropub
    2038 Madison Road, O'Bryonville
    Taking inspiration from his heritage, Ignite Entertainment founder Juan Imeroni opened Pampas Argentine Gastropub, a new eatery that offers an approachable taste of the Argentine countryside in November. The ambiance blends the culture and flavors of two of his other local establishments: Che and Butcher and Barrel. Chef Patrick Bowling — formerly of Jean-Robert's Table and Restaurant L — is at the helm. The menu features meat dishes inspired by the “gaucho” experience in the flatlands of South America as well as salads and charcuterie. They boast a diverse list of cocktails as well, including the simple yet traditional Fernet y Coca.

Tuesday
    Age: 5 Years / Breed: Papillon Mix / Sex: Female / Rescue: Little Hills of Kentucky Animal Rescue Inc.
    "Tuesday is a 5 year old Papillion mix. She weighs 14 lbs. 7 oz. Tuesday does have some medical issues, but those don’t hold her back from enjoying life to its fullest, and she has a ton of life left in her. She loves to play with other dogs, and adores cuddle time. She rewards her foster Mom with tons of kisses everyday. She loves to play outside, but prefers to be inside more and on a lap. She is crate trained, and goes potty outside and on her potty pads inside. Tuesday’s favorite things are: chicken kabobs, squeaky toys, her people, and her fur friends. Tuesday would do best in a home where someone is home most of the time to show her all that love she needs to thrive. Tuesday will run lifting her back right leg due to what our specialist says is either an old injury or a congenital condition. Our specialist felt it was in Tuesday’s best interest to leave her leg as is, and continue her on her pain regimen (Tramadol and Carprophen) and joint supplements. Tuesday also has a cataract in her right eye, our specialist does not recommend surgery for it and feels her eyesight is great in her other eye. She requires a fenced yard."

Parlor Pizza Project at Oakley Wines
    4011 Allston St., Oakley
    On Sundays, Oakley Wines teams up with Parlor Pizza Project to throw a tasty little pizza party pop-up. They typically feature two or three different 10-inch pizza options weekly, which you can eat either at the shop or take to-go. It was late August when I visited, and they had a local sweet corn and heirloom tomato pie available. The crust was chewy and crispy and the toppings were deliciously balanced between sweet, savory and delightfully fresh. — Hailey Bollinger
