Stuff We Like and A Cat We Miss: Limestone Pizza; Ultimate Sausage Platter; Alice the Dusty Bookshelf Cat

It hasn't even opened yet, but already we like any place that bills itself as a "neo-prairie pizza" joint.  We don't know what that means, but it's been serving as Twitter fodder for us and others for months now.  Chip believes the pizzas will be delivered by a team of oxen.  Give the good folks at Limeston a "like" on FB here, where they are already quite popular.  While you're there, check out the top ten names in their contest to name their gigantic wood-fired oven.  Among them is Marge.  But how about "Large Marge?" 

715 Restaurant recently made our list of "stuff we like" when they started serving pie (which has already increased in price by 50 cents).  Today they're back on the list again with something called the "ultimate sausage platter."   It costs $50.   So...who all wants to chip in and order this sumbitch? (Chip: "Me!").   It's "served with accompaniments," which we imagine is one of those contraptions that doctors use to restart your hearts.

And LFK was saddened by the passing of Alice this weekend, the Dusty Bookshelf's cat of 15 years. You should check out the touching comments that people are sharing on their FB page.  Hopefully someone will write the story of Alice one of these days, a tale that we suspect might just rival the recent bestseller Dewey: The Small Town Library Cat Who Touched the World.

Here is Alice, courtesy of the FB page.  RIP.
