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 More Read More
Last weekend was quite the experience in beef education and sampling for the bouches. The Certified Angus Beef group in Wooster, Ohio invited Collyn and me to learn more about the brand and quality difference, while indulging in the final product of their certification standards.… Read More Read More
Things only get better with age, right? Well, The Taste of Canton is no exception. In its 6th year, Taste has more vendors, locally-loved entertainment and a fantastic atmosphere than ever before.
Nothing else makes me as immeasurably happy as food and drink in the sunshine, and I'm sure the same goes for you. If that's true, this is the kickoff to our joyous, beloved season of festivals.
To make this kickoff even sweeter, I have $15 to give someone for the Taste of Canton... more on that in a bit. Read More... Read More
Sleek, crisp lines and gorgeous wood grain. Funky molded materials that contour the ergonomics of your body. Timeless colors and statement fabrics. These are just a handful of the characteristics that attract many to the midcentury modern style of furniture and decor at Main Street Modern.… Read More Read More
Normally, when I stop at the grocery store on a Friday after work, it’s begrudgingly. However, even under the given circumstance of “forgotten buns”, Market District threw me for a loop.
Not only will you find your grocery staples in the old Giant Eagle, but now the updated facility offers cafes, microbrews, made-to-order sushi and pho, in-store cooking demonstrations, free samples, a wine bar, EVENTS and LIVE MUSIC.… Read More Read More
Oh, scaaaaarry. Seriously, that word resonates feelings of fear (thanks Eli Roth) and ideas of dirty backpackers, at least for us non-world travelers. However, when you stay in a modern hostel, all those stigmas quickly subside. And as Northeast Ohioans, we luck out because we have a great one to call our own: The Cleveland Hostel.… Read More Read More
Last weekend, E and I were headed to his hometown in T-County (Tuscarawas County, for all you northern folks) and had some time to kill and bellies to fill.
Collyn had mentioned Bread Head Bakery in the past, and it went on the to-do list… but then was kind of forgotten.… Read More Read More
Nestled away in the Court Avenue alley in downtown Canton, you’ll find the newest restaurant to the area, Tapas 218. The Spanish-style ‘tapas’ restaurant is located in the space previously occupied by Tozzi’s and Fedeli’s. The establishment is determined to satisfy Stark county with a new cuisine not yet offered to this area.… Read More Read More
Some beers taste great bottled, others are pretty damn decent in the can, but seemingly, nothing is comparable to finding your favorite brewery handle at your regular spot.
Luckily, our local grocery stores have come to the rescue; to please our insatiable thirst for craft beers, there have been a few that stepped up to the plate and adapted their stores to accommodate our bring-home wants through taps and growlers. Read More
As a n Ohioan, you may be feeling the symptoms of cabin fever now that we’ve all been stuck inside for the past few days thanks to this pesky “polar vortex” thing.
While it may still be too chilly to enjoy outdoor ice skating or skiing, there are still options for getting out of the house… without freezing your rear off.… Read More Read More
If you’ve driven down Cleveland Avenue through downtown Canton, you’ll remember seeing a bright yellow building on the corner of 4th st. Ever wonder what it is? It’s Buzzbin Music and Art Shop.
Buzzbin should ring a bell, not so much as a music venue or bar, but as the print magazine you pick up and read for show listings, event calendars and articles for NEOhio locals.… Read More Read More
It’s been a chilly few months since we last basked in the sun while at a cook-out. Long gone (for the next five months or so) are those picnics and barbeques, but you can still enjoy a savory burger in our town.… Read More Read More
Does Black Friday (Pre-Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Etc.) make you want to rip your hair out, cry in horror and drink copious amounts of booze? Yeah, me too.
If you want to avoid the UGG wearing, Coach purse-toting monsters who are equipped with a bad attitude and shortage of manners at Wal-Mart – you’re in luck because we’re surrounded by talented artisans in this area who gather to host shopping events for the public.… Read More Read More
Recently, Collyn and I were invited to preview two new exhibitions at MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art), and couldn’t pass up the opportunity to head up to Cleveland on a Friday afternoon.
The museum has been open for two years at this location, but has been around since 1968.… Read More Read More
There are some good places for breakfast in North Canton, but sometimes it’s hard to break from somewhere you know you love. Sometimes that “#3 with cinnamon roll, chicken sausage, potato pancakes and egg whites” breakfast is calling your name… can you tell that we have a Sunday morning go-to?… Read More Read More
It seems as though the end of October brings a flurry of holidays upon us. First Halloween, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, and the New Year. And if your family and friends are anything like mine, a fun adult consumable is always welcome.… Read More Read More
You have two more freaky-filled, fear-festering weeks of Halloween hoopla to partake in, so I’m here to help you make the most of what little time you have left. And supposedly, Ohio is pretty haunted, so you’re already half way there.… Read More Read More
I’ve been sitting on this post for a month or so. I’m sorry, I’m mean. I should have shared The Willeyville sooner because it’s that good.
This Cleveland restaurant boasts the tagline “Handcrafted Consumables,” and I feel like it’s totally justified after having dinner and drinks there.… Read More Read More
In Canton and Stark County, we have a growing appreciation for wine and wineries. Gervasi, for example, is repeated numerous times throughout TAB because it’s just flat out gorgeous and a cool destination. However, we have more places than one to go when you’re craving a glass of wine or want an attractive view.… Read More Read More
Ohio in the fall is amazing. It’s the one season when you won’t find many residents complaining; with cooler air, brighter leaves and abundant pumpkin patches (or treats that come from those pumpkins), people around here are generally pretty happy. Another nice thing about Ohio?… Read More Read More
