In a special way, Catholic Charities belongs to every Catholic within the Arlington Diocese. It must be close to our hearts and never separated from the life of the Church. As Pope Benedict declared in “Deus Caritas Est,” charity is as essential to the Church as the Word and the sacraments. One cannot exist without the other. Though the Word and the sacraments lie at the heart of the Church, charity is its soul. As we go forward, let us recall Christ’s words: “Without me, you can do nothing” (John 15:5). I urge you to join us as we renew our pledge to serve the Church through Catholic Charities“. – From Their Website – http://www.ccda.net

Hey Folks, The Weekend Is Almost Here, And Boy Are We Getting Ready For The NFL Playoffs. That Being Said, Let’s Keep In Mind The Folks Who Need A Little Extra Help This Time Of Year. The Focal Point Of Today’s Shelter Spotlight is The Capuchin Soup Kitchen located in Detroit, Michigan.

Each week they serve over 2,500 meals and each year the supply nearly 300,000 lbs of food to the hungry and homeless in the surrounding areas.

Since its inception, the Capuchin Soup Kitchen has depended on the time and efforts of others in the community who shared our concern and commitment to the poor. At the heart of our mission is the service of the many volunteers that donate their time on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. Whether preparing food in the kitchen, serving meals to guests; planting, weeding or harvesting in the Earthworks garden; hanging clothing, building pantry boxes or packaging meat in the Services Center; tutoring or mentoring a child or assisting in the Arts program at the Children’s Library, volunteers provide the extra pair of hands, the warm smile and caring attitude that make the Capuchin Soup Kitchen what it is. The hours of service given by volunteers translates into over 30 additional full time staff that would have to be employed to serve those who come to our door. The generous gift of time given to the Capuchin Soup Kitchen by volunteers insures that we are able to return eighty-nine cents of every donated dollar to direct client services“. – From their website: http://www.cskdetroit.org

Hey Folks, How Ya’ll Doing? I hope you’re having a kickass Tuesday, we’ve put a great “Happy Hour Hot Spot” post together. We’ve searched high, low, east and west for this weeks selection and trust me when I tell you it’ll be awesome for anyone in the area. I’m heading back to greatest city in the world, and featuring a spot on the West Side. The other night, we had the chance to check out the Happy Hour at Johnny Utah’s NYC the other night, and for a relaxing Tuesday Evening (or any evening for that matter) it’s fantastic. The bartenders were amazing, as drinks were refilled on request and the people were great. Here’s a few things you guys in the midtown area should keep in mind.

  • Johnny Utah’s NYC Saloon has the first ever mechanical bull – The bull riding is FREE for anyone over the age of 18, and runs on a first come, first serve basis. (Riders must present proper ID). WARNING: This can cause folks to engage in endless laughter, unforseen laughs at the water cooler in the morning, and last but not least, awesome lasting memories.

 

  • Happy Hour is Six(6) Days in this joint. It’ runs Monday to Saturday 4:00pm-10:00pm with several drink specials. $5 Margaritas for starters which are always a good choice. $3 Coronas and $3 Rolling Rocks. Finally, a super blow out during Happy Hour – $2 Pabst Blue Ribbons (PBRs). 

 

  • A menu from the smokehouse that is off the charts, if you like great steaks and BBQ. I recommend the Rattlesnake Nachos to start, followed by the Braised Pork Roast and of course you’ll need to end with the sensational Key Lime Pie.

 

Not only does Johnny Utah’s give you the look of an old-time Saloon, it puts other establishments to shame. It’s got the atmosphere, the crowd and certainly offers each and every one of its customers a grand ol’ time. So folks, ya’ll need to mosey on down to Johnny Utah’s and take the Bull by the Horns.

Until Next Time – Keep On Truckin’
