Make-over magician

Cities Barbecue’s illustrious, ever-color-changing rooftop cow got a make-over Sunday, September 3. The artist was Color the Cow contest winner Madison Lewandawski (age 7), whose design — dubbed the Cowger — was chosen from the large number of entries by area children. Madison received a $50 gift certificate from Cities Barbecue, a McConnell’s gift basket, and a $50 gift certificate from Art Essentials. The restaurant plans to hold the competition a couple of times per year.

4•1•1 Cities Barbecue, 901 N. Milpas. Open daily 11am-9pm. Call 892-4483 or visit
