Hello AJ readers!

This week, we released news about two Lubbock restaurants – Toasted Yolk Café and Fajita Pete’s, as well as several upcoming restaurants expected to open in December, including Oceans Behavioral Hospital and The Mom Lounge.

Interviews with the hospital show they are looking to hire more than 100 staff to help improve the mental health of Lubbock’s people aged 50 and over.

“There’s a really big need, so the whole community and the medical community out there is open,” said Dax Parker, vice president of market development. “We’re really just hoping to raise awareness and complement UMC and Covenant and be a real mental health pillar in the community.”

Mary McCabe and Anna O’Steen, owners of The Mom Lounge, also shared the story of how they became friends and business partners. Their business aims to help parents and children meet others while offering lessons.
