Fajita Pete’s opens just in time for Halloween, and Toasted Yolk opens on November 7th. Midland/Odessa’s favorite Mexican restaurant, Ajuua’s, also opened in Lubbock this week. Stella’s Restaurant, Bob Mills Furniture and The Price Group recently celebrated their anniversaries. Stella turned 2, Mills turned 15, and The Price Group turned 50.
Stay tuned next week for our upcoming coverage of Behavioral Hospital, a follow-up to Fajita Pete’s, and a preview of a new business that hopes to give parents a place to hang out.
Another feature will be TEGA Kids, a longtime Lubbock children’s gym, about its move from 82nd Street to Milwaukee Avenue. The interview also revealed future plans to add to the fun.
And the best bite of the week is Giorgio’s Calzone. A great lunch special if you’re downtown and want something in a hurry before the deadline.
