Good Evening Ladies & Gents! Tonight We Focus On A Place That’s Offering Shelter To Not Only The Homeless, But Rather To Those In Situations That Might Harmful To Themselves Or Even Others. Tonight We Are Going To Feature Compass House. Under The Direction Of Sylvia Nadler, Compass House Goes Beyond The Generic Definition Of Homelessness And Provides Opportunity To Those Who May Be Less Fortunate. Sometimes When We’re Going To And From Work We See The Man Playing His Guitar Or The Woman Walking With A Crutch, But Rarely Do We See A Child From An Unbearable Broken Home, Or A Child Literally Left For Dead By Unwanting Parents. For Those Children There Is A New Ray Of Hope And That Is The Compass House. The Compass House Is Located At 370 Linwood Avenue, Buffalo, NY 14209. They Can Be Reached By Phone (If During A Crisis) At: (716) 886-0935. If Calling During Normal Business Hours They Can Be Reached By (716) 886-1351.

Safe Place began in Louisville, Kentucky in 1983 as an outreach effort of the YMCA Center for Youth Alternatives. The Safe Place program began in response to the many calls to the shelter from young people who did not have a way to get there. As a result, many youth trying to cope with personal or family crisis situations never reached the shelter. To address this issue, Project Safe Place was developed, designating businesses and community buildings as locations where youth could easily access help. Its’ success has prompted the implementation of this youth shelter outreach program in 714 communities throughout the United States“. – From Their Website – http://www.compasshouse.org

Hey There! Tonight, I Get To Go Back Home, And Feature A Local Soup Kitchen Of Sorts. When I Was Younger Lad, Roughly 3-4 Years Ago I Used Hang With My Fellow Irishmen In Times Square, New York City. Today, As A Much Older And Wiser Man, I Can Appreciate Some Of The Great People And Great Organizations NYC Has To Offer. One Of Those Groups Are The Folks Who Twice A Week Offer Up A Meal To Hungry And Homeless That Gather At Saint Luke’s Lutheran Church In New York City. The Soup Kitchen Is Open Every Tuesday And Thursday At 1:00PM. Saint Luke’s Is Located At 308 West 46th Street, New York, NY 10036.

Tradition tells us that Saint Luke was a physician, the author of the third Gospel.  As such he has been for centuries the patron saint of healing.  We invite all people to join us at Saint Luke’s Lutheran Church – The Lutheran Church of Times Square“. – From Their Website.

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’
