This is where we showcase how much we drink.
As you have already figured, we are always on the search for something new to do and somewhere to go in Akron, but that doesn’t necessarily mean after work. We’ve all been there – sometimes you need a really great lunch, or a break from the office, and heating left overs in the community microwave won’t cut it.… Read More Read 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 More Read More
I don’t know if “libate” is a word… but I do know that Canton, Ohio needs a list of happy hour specials. For you, for me, for Collyn, for Collyn and I to “research”… oh, and for those out-of-towners who want to sit back and take in Wonderful Canton, Ohio.
Do yourself a favor and bookmark this page for future reference because it will be a living, breathing directory for your happy hour needs in the area. We’ll continue to throw our favorites on the list and maybe some that we don’t like so much, but might be your thing. You can probably see updates every couple of weeks, so keep your eye out and be sure to make your own recommendations in the comments. Read More
One of the best traits of Ohio City is how easy it is to get around and walk from point a to point b....c,d, and e. Parking at West Side Market, we ran through the vendors and got tons of great produce, cookies, popcorn and cheese then stopped at the car to drop everything off. We didn't have to move the car or worry about finding additional parking as all our spots were within a few blocks.
Because the only thing that makes a beverage better, is drinking that beverage outside in the sunshine on a patio. Read More
Last Friday, for our dear friend Lilia’s 29th (+ maybe a few) birthday, Lisa and I headed up to CLE to help her celebrate. After a short deliberation of where to celebrate - E. 4th, Gordon Square or Tremont, we settled on Gordon Square, one of our favorite walkable neighborhoods. Infested with bearded plaid-shirted hipsters, yes, but still a fave. Read More
It had been a while since we all had gone on a big St. Patty’s pub crawl, so my coworker Jen and I decided it was time we plan a good one. Even better, ystark!, the young professional arm of the Canton Chamber of Commerce, was on board to sponsor it with us. YES.
The plan was to hit five local, independent bars in four hours – all within a few very walkable blocks of Downtown Canton, with the last stop being a bar and restaurant where people could stay for dinner. We scheduled 45 minutes at each bar, with 15 minutes in between to get people “corralled” and give ‘em time to pay up and walk to the next location. To our surprise, it worked! Read More
Beers are so cheap. This is the place to go if you have $10 in your pocket and are looking to drink about 4 PBRs. Among PBR, you'll find Miller High Life, Bud Light, Genny Cream Ale, Rogue Dead Guy, Blue Moon and more. These range between $2 and $5 - you can go ahead and figure which are $2. George's also has liquor and wine... although it looks out of place [read: pretentious] to be "that guy" drinking wine. Read More
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.
