Rendez-Vous With Jean-Michel Jarre At Verizon Theatre, Catch The Finals Of The 24-Hour Video Race At The Angelika Film Center And Get More Sugar With Picnictyme At Independent Bar & Kitchen.

Here’s some good news to start your week off on a positive note.

A pizza delivery driver in Kentucky ended up saving two people last week while making a delivery.. Ralph Letner arrived at a mobile home park and rushed into a home that was on fire, shut off a breaker and escorted the homeowner to safety. He also helped another woman escape.

The most fortunate bit of news for the homeowner? Letner wasn’t even supposed to be working at the time. He had stayed past the end of his shift because the restaurant was busy.

So there’s some nice news to start your week off right. And here’s some dope events to kick your week off right with some fun. If you get pizza tonight, be sure to be nice and tip your pizza delivery person because you never know when they’ll be the next MVP. — Obed Manuel
