'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.

Tender Bar + Kitchen

Tender Bar + Kitchen, 4300 Butler St., Lawrence-ville, will hold its first official Repeal Day Dinner to celebrate the passing of the 21st Amendment, which ended Prohibition, at 6:30 p.m. Dec. 5.

In honor of this historical milestone, Tender will showcase spirits from Laird & Company, America's oldest commercial distillery. Lisa Laird, the company's owner and “world ambassador,” will be in attendance to share her knowledge, stories and tasting notes with guests.

The event will commence with a welcome cocktail and reception in Tender's Green room. Afterward, guests will be led to the Gold room to be served a four-course dinner featuring American comfort cuisine by Chef Steve Hebrank, in addition to spirit and cocktail pairings.

Established in 1780, Laird & Company is known for its natural, apple-based products. The distillery has been passed on through nine generations, and it survived Prohibition by producing “sweet cyder” and apple brandy for “medicinal purposes.” Today, Laird, which operates out of single distillery in Virginia, fills Tender's shelves with products such as their signature “bottled-in-bond” apple brandy, as well as the Lazzaroni line of liqueurs.

Tickets are $65. Advanced booking is required.

Details: 412-402-9522 or www.tenderpgh.com
