Throughout the cold, rainy [shitty] months leading up to summer, there are few things I look forward to more than a good food festival. It kind of keeps me going. I know this sentiment is shared… especially after this epic rain season we just experienced.… Read MoreRead More
From the creators of TD’s Tailgate comes Twisted Citrus, the newest and brightest brunch spot in North Canton… and you know we don’t get new things like this very often.

Thirsty Dog: You’ve seen it at grocery stores, Erik’s, and on tap at many of your favorite restaurants – but it’s not a big company brew, it’s actually a homegrown, local brewery up in Akron, Ohio.

I know how to start this post off in order to reduce anxiety and anger: I am not a University of Michigan fan.
With that said, I really like the state of Michigan. Between the beaches and amazingly-varied, outdoor destinations, the state really stands out for a go-to weekend getaway for us Ohioans.… Read MoreRead More
One of Americans’ favorite holidays is coming up: The Fourth of July. Oh, buddy. If someone loves to celebrate in theme, it’s me.
Absurd amounts of fireworks are sold, grocers are stocked with hot dogs and rocket pops, and you’ll probably eat your weight in potato salad.… Read MoreRead More
