Black Is Beautiful Imperial Stout at Veza Sur

So far, more than 1,000 breweries have signed up to participate (from all U.S. states and 19 countries), all of them putting their own unique spin on the imperial stout.

If you're in the market for a new pet along with a good takeout meal, the Stoner’s franchise in Fort Lauderdale might be a good way to find both. Owner John Stetson is offering one year's worth of free pizzas to anyone who adopts an animal advertised on the flyers he's attaching to every pizza box that goes out his door. Each week, the restaurant prints out hundreds of flyers showcasing dogs, cats, and other pets in need of a home. In order to claim a free year of pizza, Stoner's asks that anyone who adopts a pet featured on the flyer promotion contact the store directly at 954-533-4851 for instructions on how to submit paperwork certifying the adoption, along with a photo of the rescued animal with its new family. There is no limit to the number of people who can claim a prize. 1509 E. Las Olas Blvd., Fort Lauderdale; 954-533-4851; stonerspizzajoint.com.
