happy dog

Did you ever feel like you’re the last person to know about/discover something? That’s exactly how I felt when I wrote last month about Eric Williams and his new involvement with Happy Dog.

$1 equals 40 days of water for a child (cleveland chefs join together for unicef’s project tap)

From March 22 – 28, five local restaurants are participating in Unicef’s Tap Project, which brings clean water to millions of children around the world – something each of us takes for granted every single day.

momocho

This past Saturday, we headed to Momocho with two of my sisters and their husbands for dinner. I was craving Mexican all week and no one was about to tell the pregnant women she couldn’t pick the restaurant. We took my sister and brother-in-law there last spring, but this was the first outing for my […]
