'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

A holiday revered for its complete and utter cheesiness is coming up soon. In honor of National Cheese Fondue Day on April 11, The Melting Pot fondue restaurant will offer a special “Buy Cheese, Get Cheese” offer.

Guests who make reservations at The Melting Pot on April 11 and mention “National Cheese Fondue Day” or “BCGC” will have the opportunity to enjoy seconds on cheese fondue for free with the purchase of the first portion.

One “Buy Cheese, Get Cheese” offer is valid for every two guests, as the communal fondue-dining experience allows for up to four individual portions of cheese fondue to be shared in one fondue pot. When two guests redeem this offer, they will receive two individual portions of cheese fondue for the price of one, sharing both portions in one fondue pot.

Reservations are required to redeem the offer. The Melting Pot, at 125 W. Station Square Drive, can be reached at 412-261-3477.

BAHAMA BREEZE ISLAND GRILLE

Bahama Breeze Island Grille, 6100 Robinson Center Drive in Robinson, has a new line of rice bowls available on both the lunch and dinner menu, and can be ordered in advance as part of the restaurant's “To-Go” menu.

There are six options, including Shrimp Creole with tender shrimp sautéed in a Caribbean Creole sauce, chorizo sausage, sweet peppers, olives and tomatoes served over basmati rice; and Carnitas, slow roasted pork, sautéed with chorizo sausage, fresh corn, sweet plantains and garbanzo beans in a cumin-citrus sauce served over yellow rice.

Free valet at Shadyside eateries

Mixed in with the Road Closed and Detour signs on Ellsworth and South Highland avenues are some far-more-pleasing placards: free valet parking for brunch and dinner at Casbah and Mad Mex, and for dinner at Soba and Umi.

South Highland is open to Mad Mex and Casbah, and both restaurants are open regular hours. Ellsworth Avenue is closed where it runs below South Highland; follow the detour to get to Soba and Umi
