Downtown Dialogue - What's Up Downtown


Pete Phlum

Get Your Deli On
Many DD readers may know him, but for those that don’t, meet Pete Pflum, one of the reasons Downtown grooves. The veteran restaurateur and the little white house on the SW corner of Pine and Main were destined to meet, and the result is the wonderful Porch Deli. From the friendly folks to the fabulous food, it’s all good.

Monika Fleshner, professor of integrative physiology, will lead a discussion about stress and exercise. Stress is a part of life and many times stressors are severe or chronic.
