Like Lisa pointed out in her post on Tuscarawas County Wineries, fall is a good time to be an Ohioan. The weather’s agreeable, the sun’s shining on our rolling hills, and there’s a feeling in the air that we BETTER FRICKIN’ ENJOY IT before we’re snowed in for four months.… Read MoreRead More
Canton, Ohio, is home base to Two Amused Bouches. Contrary to stereotype, we're more than the Pro Football Hall of Fame (even though we ARE pretty proud to have it here)! Not only will you find out more about Collyn and Lisa, but you'll also get to know all of our day-to-day local faves - from date-night dinners and drinks to takeout and thrifting. A few other outlying towns and cities you'll find in this spot include New Phila, Dover, East Canton, Minerva, etc. We wouldn't forget about those guys.
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 MoreRead More
Last weekend, Futureman and I took the kiddos to the Lynn Drive-In in Strasburg, Ohio, to see the animated movie Planes. If you’ve been reading the blog, you know I love to put together family ‘quick trips’ – outings that feel special even though they’re close by and affordable.… Read MoreRead More
If you’ve been in a bit of a post-Labor Day funk like we have, there’s only one solution: shake it off starting this weekend! There’s an abundance of ways to embrace the first signs of fall (and we plan to do all of them!): harvest festivals, homemade soup sales, late season baseball, and more.… Read MoreRead More
Lots lots LOTS going on this holiday weekend! Here’s where you’re likely to find Lisa or me over the Labor Day weekend. We have some ambitious goals to hit most, if not all of these, using a divide-and-conquer strategy, hand sanitizer and possibly some Red Bulls.… Read MoreRead More
We love a good ‘thrift store score.’ There’s the challenge of the hunt, chance to give new life to old object, and satisfaction knowing that both our bank accounts and the environment thank us. And, let’s be honest, it also frees up cash for eating out several times a week.… Read MoreRead More
A few weeks ago, a random turn of events led to me driving through downtown Canal Fulton, Ohio. This is not something I do often; charming as it is, Canal Fulton is quaint, quiet, and on the way to….more off-the-beaten-path Ohio towns.… Read MoreRead More
In her last post, Lisa covered What To Do during Pro-Football Hall of Fall Week in Canton (and there is a lot to do). But all that ‘doing’ is going to leave you hungry, right? Right.
Never fear, we’re a couple of dining-out professionals and will take care of your growling stomach in no time.… Read MoreRead More
What kind of Canton residents would we be if we didn’t promote and suggest the Football Hall of Fame 2013 to our readers? It’s the #1 bragging right and tourist attraction we have, and we love it. We are proud of it and want others to have a good time when they come to visit.… Read MoreRead More
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 MoreRead More
Hipsters, sandwiches, downtown Canton, I love ‘em all. Combine them and it’s like a [local] little piece of Portlandia. Recently opened Deli Ohio is just that – also, a much needed addition to the food scene here.
I say much needed because it fills that gap between sit down restaurant and… McDonald’s.… Read MoreRead More
Canton Food Tours has been on our “must-do” list for a long time now. So, when the planets aligned and we were able to gather a group of foodie/artsy/all-around-creative friends, we jumped at the chance to go on a private Warehouse District tour of downtown Canton.… Read MoreRead More
I’ve never considered myself much of a ‘Hartville gal.’
For years when I would think of Hartville, Ohio – admittedly a little (a lot?) stereotypically – I’d imagine women in Quacker Factory outfits buying country crafts and tchotchkes galore. As you may have gathered, I do not like Quacker Factory outfits, country crafts, or tchotchkes galore.… Read MoreRead More
Our first GUEST POST! Our fabulous friend Amber (and fellow web marketer – we hang out in packs) happily agreed to share her love of country music by covering Countryfest for Two Amused Bouches. It happens each year, right here in our backyard.… Read MoreRead More
Two summertime realities of life in Canton, Ohio: 1) summer is short, and 2) good patios are hard to come by…unless you like to eat while gazing onto an asphalt parking lot and the hood of your car. If so, we’ve got plenty of those.… Read MoreRead More
Here’s one we didn’t see coming: a favorable review of a drive-thru sushi joint in Canton, Ohio.
I mean, honestly, when a drive-thru sushi place opens in former Burger King, there are all sorts of reasons to be afraid…very afraid.… Read MoreRead More
