Jody Stevens lost her home in a fire last week.
Last week ended with sad news when local baker, Jody Stevens, lost her home in a fire. Thankfully she was not at her home during the fire, but she lost everything inside her home, including the the tools she uses for her cake business, Jodycakes. Various restaurateurs and chefs have created fundraising events and a Give Forward account to raise funds and help Stevens during this difficult time. On Sunday, May 25, during Memorial Day weekend, the public is invited to the big fundraiser at Big Star Bar featuring a silent auction and possibly a dunk tank like the one at Gracie Nguyen's fundraiser last month.

Last week we welcomed two new bars. First is Beer Market Co. which officially opened for lunch and dinner on Monday, May 5. This new beer garden located at 920 Studemont, Suite 900, rotates through 365 different types of beers regularly; pair any brew with a burger, tacos or comforting mac 'n cheese. It's a place to kick back and relax.

The second bar is Red Ox Bar & Grill which opened at 811 Collingsworth. The new establishment will offer craft beers, beef fajitas, burgers and tacos; enjoy a nice cold one inside at the bar or outside on the patio picnic tables while the weather is tolerable.
