Better Than the Easter Bunny. Try something new this weekend at Baker Street Pub and Grill's first ever Scotch Egg Eating Contest.

This Monday at 6:30pm the Zarrow Regional Library located at 2224 W. 51st St. hosts the West Side Stitchers, as they teach all ages how to weave webs of intrigue.

They Don't Dance They'll Make You Sing. They may not perform dressage like the Olympics' current equestrian sensations, but why would they want to?
