Help Braeden get a Service Dog

Help Braeden get a Service Dog

There's is something special about the bond between a human and their animal friend. Even more special is a child with their first pet. The most special of all is the bond between a child and a service animal. The bond between the two is so strong and dependent.

Braeden is eight and has autism. He often has seizures and many doctors appointments which cause him stress and anxiousness. But Braeden calms down among animals. His family is hoping a service dog will help him to become more independent and build self confidence. A young service dog will grow with him through his teen years.

Service dogs are not commonly seen for children with autism and definitely cost a lot of money. Braeden's family must raise $8,000. So far they are half way to that goal. To help reach the goal, Lucca Restaurant is helping the effort.

Strawberry and Cashew Milk Smoothie

Strawberry and Cashew Milk Smoothie

Spring had definitely sprung during my recent visit to the Midtown Farmers Market, and with the warm midmorning air and sunshine, I couldn’t resist buying a flat of fresh, organic strawberries from Rodriguez Farms. An entire flat may seem like a lot to consume before my strawberries start growing fuzz, but I am a prolific smoothie maker when the weather is fine. After hauling my flat home – and admittedly losing a couple strawberries on the way – I took stock of my fridge and decided to try out my newly purchased cashew milk by Silk to make the following strawberry smoothie for breakfast. The result was delicious. I have to say that cashew milk might just be my new favorite nut milk! 

Ingredients
½ cup strawberries
¼ cup raspberries... Read More

And so we welcome Vampire Penguin with open arms as one of our newest downtown neighbors! Vampire Penguin is located at 907 K Street. You won’t miss it because there is no other nearby store that you could possibly get the name confused with! And look at that cute bow tie!
