Busboy Saves Customer's Life

Lance Sauber, an aspiring firefighter, gave customer service a new meaning when he took advantage of his recent emergency medical technician (EMT) training to dislodge a piece of trapped food in order to save the life of George Holley, owner of Barbecues Galore. Only four days earlier, Sauber had started his job at McMahon's Prime Steakhouse--which, they want you to know, has started selling a $19.95 hamburger. You can have it your way with top-end freshly ground prime beef, specialty porcini and morel mushrooms, and Gruyère cheese at 2959 N. Swan Road; 327-7463.

Mario's Pizza Celebrates

October is both National Pizza Month and the 28th anniversary of Mario's Pizza. Beginning Monday, Oct. 9, Mario's will be giving away one free extra-large, one-item New York-style pizza every day for 28 days. Enter by filling out a form at 3157 N. First Ave. One lucky winner's name will be pulled from the entry box every day. No purchase is necessary to enter and win; one entry per person. Open daily; 622-3668.

Argentina Heart and Soul

On Sunday, Oct. 15, Hacienda del Sol will honor Argentina with wine tasting, traditional barbecue and the live sounds of Incendio, a world-fusion Latin guitar group. It all happens in the courtyard from 4 to 7 p.m. $50 per person; 529-3500.

Lettuce Entertain You

If spinach is not back in the salad bowl yet, Tom Kusian, owner of the 17th Street Market, recommends butter lettuce. Butter lettuce is a good source of vitamin A and iron. The sounds of live jazz permeate the market on Fridays from 4 to 6:30 p.m. at 840 E. 17th St.; 792-2588.

$5 Oktoberfest Specials at Terra Cotta

When you dine at the bar during the month of October, fine ale-braised bratwurst and cabbage served with a warm fingerling German potato salad may be enjoyed for only $5. This very popular dish will be available daily from 4 p.m. until closing at 3500 E. Sunrise Drive; 577-8100.
