Serving from a changing menu, Chef Ward uses influences from Asian, French and Mediterranean cooking to present award winning New American cuisine. The Mercury evokes both a sophisticated setting and a casual neighborhood atmosphere, offering a unique dining experience.
GALT is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit all-volunteer group dedicated to placing all greyhounds primarily those that competed and trained for racing, greyhound mixes, large sight hounds and sighthound mixes into loving homes. GALT facilitates the adoption of greyhounds by providing kennel services and foster homes along with their medical needs, including spay and neuter, assisting them in the transition from track-life to home-life, and educating the public about why the greyhound has been a favored companion dog for more than 4,000 years.
