The restaurant hopes to change the menu occasionally to accompany different holidays. 

Dishes such as risotto, shrimp, salmon, tenderloin steak and scallops will be on the menu.
Oliver’s patio will also allow dogs. 


A new lawsuit could potentially remove former President Donald Trump from the primary ballot in Colorado. The lawsuit argues that Section 3 of the 14th Amendment disqualifies Trump because the clause bans those who “engaged in insurrection or rebellion” against the Constitution from
holding office. 

According to the lawsuit, his actions during Jan. 6, 2021 and his attempt to overturn the 2020 election are in violation of his sworn oath to “preserve, protect and defend” the Constitution. “There is an urgent public interest in promptly resolving whether Trump is constitutionally eligible to serve as president in advance of the approaching primary election,” the lawsuit states. “Absent timely relief, petitioners and other voters will be
irreparably harmed.” 

Colorado law states candidates are only eligible for office if they fully meet the qualifications of the office they are running for, as stated in the Constitution.

Two Virginia lawmakers recently introduced a bill that would prohibit government shutdowns. The End Shutdowns Act, proposed by Sen. Tim Kaine and U.S. Rep. Don Beyer, would put in place an automatic continuing resolution Oct. 1 if no appropriations bill passes by that date. If passed, the bill would also prevent the Senate from passing other legislation outside of an emergency until Congress agrees on a long-term spending deal. “Intentionally shuttering the government of the most powerful country on Earth is foolish, weakening and embarrassing America on the world stage,” Beyer said, according to WSET.


Over 2,400 people were killed and another 2,400 were injured in a 6.8 magnitude earthquake in Morocco Sept. 9. The earthquake was the strongest that Morocco had experienced in over a century. Relief efforts have begun, but rescuers are just beginning to reach remote mountain villages that took some of the hardest hits. 

According to CNN, authorities expect the death toll to continue rising as the rescue and recovery work continues. The U.K. government is aiding relief efforts by sending 60 emergency officials, four search dogs and rescue equipment such
as concrete-cutting tools to Morocco.
