What to do this week: August 21-25

By Lis Casanova Monday WATCH OUT: Even if you’ve been living under a rock, you probably still know about the total eclipse — it’s only the biggest astronomical event in our lifetimes.

If you’ve ever had one of these jobs, particularly in the food service industry, I commend you. You’ve probably become a more conscientious person because of it, […]
