Northeast Ohio Water Parks: 8 Faves for Cooling Off with the Kids

Northeast Ohio Water Parks: 8 Faves for Cooling Off with the Kids

Hey guys, so guess what? It’s mid-July and summer showed up. Yup, all 90° and hot-and-steamy and stuff.

You know what this means: get thyself to the pool, quick! By my stellar math calculations, most of us have less than six weeks to do this before 1) it’s back-to-school, 2) the pools are drained, or 3) it snows.… Read More

Crafty Mart: Akron’s Living Etsy Shop

Crafty Mart: Akron’s Living Etsy Shop

Browsing Etsy is fun, but it's usually just that for me, browsing. However, when you put those shops on a table and allow me to pick items up, smell them (promise I'm talking about soaps and body butters... maybe), feel them and get caught up in the excitement, I buy, buy, buy. Perfect business concept! The creators of Crafty Mart just so happen to be savvy, and have smarty pants because they did just that. Read More! Read More

Mid-Century Modern: The Bomb Shelter, Akron

Mid-Century Modern: The Bomb Shelter, Akron

Both Lisa and I are totally obsessed with mid-century modern everything. With the era’s clean lines and timeless appeal, what’s not to love? Unfortunately, we are not alone in this obsession, and prices tend to reflect this. (Curse you, hipsters!)

So, when I stumbled upon Mandi’s blog, I was all too excited to see her Canton home full of mid-century-yet-budget-friendly goodness.… Read More

Big Sports in a Growing City: Akron Aeros

Big Sports in a Growing City: Akron Aeros

All of us non-Clevelanders have been there - jealous desires of wanting to take a swift car ride to Progressive Field, or even walking from an amazing restaurant to a ball game. You guys up North kind of have it made... BUT. Low and behold. We have our own Summit county gem of a stadium, with a treasure of a team. (I sound like a pirate now, right? I'll stop. Promise.) The Akron Aeros. Read More

Brunch Love: The Blue Door – Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio

Brunch Love: The Blue Door – Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio

The Blue Door, however, appeals to the bruch-snob in us in almost every way. They offer locally-sourced ingredients, house-made pastries and breads, a small, rotating menu (not 189 variations of breakfast combos to pick from), and a perfect mix of breakfast/brunch/lunch/sweets. As a couple of girls who could easily live on bread and cheese, we love that their menu has a European flair – crepes suzette, raspberry almond pancakes, sausage and feta frittata, mussels & frites, a BLT on homemade croissant, etc. And wouldn’t you know – their kitchen staff all has chefs’ training.

Baxter’s Bar Akron

Baxter’s Bar Akron

Ordering a microbrew in downtown Akron, has long been happening at Lockview, and that's about it. Most of the bars down Main Street boast cocktails, wines, some imports but mostly big-box domestics. Needless to say, prior to the summer of 2012 your only option for a delicious craft beer was limitied. THEN. Then Baxter's Bar opened, right beside Lockview actually, and they carry around 200 beers.
