I wrote a post on Medium about my son Ben's traumatic experience w/ food allergies for this ‪#‎GivingTuesday‬ to help raise awareness and (hopefully) funds for research & a cure via http://m13.me/fW0fr
Our son Ben went into anaphylaxis from one cashew… now we must balance safety with the childhood need to freely explore

Any chance I have 40 friends willing to share $40 to help the kids get clean drinking water for my 40th birthday?

If you live in California, please send a note to Gov. Jerry Brown to encourage signing of the new #EpiPenBill SB01266 to ensure all children in public schools have access to epinephrine. 25% of 1st time food allergy reactions happen in a school. No more easily preventable #foodallergy reactions/deaths at schools.

Jonah really wanted me to share his video request for friends to donate to his school fundraiser on Friday: a 5-hour walkathon in the October 90° sun. Help fund the youths' art & science enrichment programs, field trips, and the like…  https://www.walkstarter.org/page/bRx4iB4R0P #fundraiserforkids

Very accommodating for people with food allergies. Staff is knowledgable of ingredients and cross contact, and will happily wash utensils and prepare your pizza separately without complaint or hassle.

Pad Thai was flavorful, service was quick for pickup, the staff very friendly, and (and this is an important "and") they have what Midwesterners know as "crab rangoon" (e.g. deep fried, cream-cheese-filled wonton wrappers folded up into a 4-pointed appetizer).
