    Poquito’s on Pause

    There’s nothing that says Yukon quite like Poquito de Mexico’s Noon Day Special. If you’ve never heard of it, go try it at  422 W Main St! Though you’ll have to hurry, because Poquito’s (as us locals call it) will be closed from July 14th – July 28th. The owners will be going to Mexico for a visit, but promise to return and keep serving some of Yukon’s Best Mexican food.

    Adoptable Pet of the Week

    Hi, Bruce!

    Bruce is a sweet and lovable big bulldog mix. He’s about 7 months old and is doing well on his housebreaking, and does great in his crate. He gets burst of fun energy, but is mostly a calm and relaxed pet. Bruce is a total sweetheart, in the picture below, you can see him at a little girl’s birthday party, soaking up the attention! Bruce’s deafness does NOT hold him back. He watches others for cues on what to do, and with some time and patience, he would learn hand signs very quickly. Bruce is in a foster home, not at the shelter so please mention he is Lisa’s foster when emailing or calling.

    Adoption fee for all dogs and puppies is $130.00 each, which includes spay/neuter, vaccinations (including all puppy boosters for puppies under 4 months), worming, flea/tick treatment if needed, microchip and collar/leash/tags.

    You can find out more about Bruce, or make plans to adopt him here, or contact Pet’s and People at (405) 350-7387.

    Tender Tuesday – Episode 5

    Madisyn and Cailin are great friends. Their friendship only grows stronger with each bite of chicken. Eventually, they will be unstoppable. Now it’s only a matter of time until they consume enough chicken to be strong enough to take over the world.

    Still, it’s fun to watch them and hear their commentary, so let’s see where they go this week.

    To see last week’s episode, click here!

    *Views expressed are that of Cailin and Madisyn and not of yukonsbest.com “Tender Tuesday” is not sponsored by any chicken restaurants. We are chicken outlaws.

    Happy Fourth of July!

    Happy Fourth!

    Independence Day, or the Fourth of July, became a federal holiday in 1941. Of course, it was celebrated long before it became federally recognized. On July 2nd, 1776, the Founding Fathers voted for independence from Britain, and two days later, the Declaration of Independence was made. Now, and since the first Independence Day, people have celebrated with fireworks, parades, concerts, and their families.

    How will you celebrate today? Don’t forget to Tag us on Instagram @yukonsbest or with #yukonsbest, share with our Facebook page Yukon’s Best, or e-mail us at hello@yukonsbest.com.
