Little Lola and Lucca - Des Moines

She's a wiz a soccer too!

Little Lola, Deep Acres Loco Por Lola, turned 6-months last week and this past weekend she participated in the Central Iowa Kennel Club shows.   She did such a fine job strutting her stuff in the ring and took Best of Winners both days.

After the show on Saturday, Lola and dad took a nice stroll around West Village in Des Moines and did a little shopping.   Then dad had dinner at Lucca on Locust Street (luccarestaurant.net ).   Goat cheese with beets.  Gnocchi with sage.  Risotto with butternut squash.  Rigatoni with black olive pesto.   Owner and three-time-James-Beard-Award-nominee Steve Logsdon took special care and served it up right.   If you should ever find yourself in Des Moines, this is the place to go.

Lucca's Steve Logsdon, host with the most.
