Market District – Gourmet Grocery in Green, Ohio

Market District – Gourmet Grocery in Green, Ohio

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

Eat Local: The Rail in Canton, Ohio

Eat Local: The Rail in Canton, Ohio

Canton has its share of dining gems, but they’re often tucked away in our city’s nooks and crannies – off the beaten path or scattered on street corners in the downtown district.

So when word spread that local restaurateur Mike Mariola was opening his third location of the RAIL at Belden Village Mall – ground zero for chain restaurants and big-name retailers – I CHEERED at the news…and an entire contingent of local foodies cheered along with me.… Read More

SkyMax Trampoline Arena in North Canton

SkyMax Trampoline Arena in North Canton

I don’t know about you, but stir-crazy barely begins to describe what we’ve been feelin’ in the Floyd household this winter. We’re movie’d out, XBOX’d out, and for sure, polar vortex’d out.

Since hiking, biking, even backyard-playing, are 8″ of snow-melt and a good 50 degrees away, we’ve been trying to pass the Winter blues in more creative ways.… Read More

Beer Growlers and Your Local Grocer

Beer Growlers and Your Local Grocer

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.

First Amendment Public House: Good Food & Free Speech in Wooster, Ohio

First Amendment Public House: Good Food & Free Speech in Wooster, Ohio

When our family wants to venture outside of everyday territory for an outing, we love to make a short jaunt to Wooster, Ohio. It's a surprisingly hip town about 30 minutes west of Canton, surrounded by Ohio's rolling farmland on all sides (including the 'gateway' to Amish Country to the south) and - I'll be honest - not much else.

Canton First Friday: Arts, Food, Music & More

Canton First Friday: Arts, Food, Music & More

When we first moved to Canton 14 years ago, I recall driving around with my hubs on a warm mid-August night to explore the new terrain, only to find downtown Canton…..completely dead. Had we missed an evacuation order? Of course, we quickly discovered that, yes, everyone had ‘evacuated’……to eat and shop in the Belden Village/Strip area (aka retail heaven).… Read More

Buzzbin Art & Music Shop in Downtown Canton

Buzzbin Art & Music Shop in Downtown Canton

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

Indie Fashion: Mainstream Boutique in North Canton

Indie Fashion: Mainstream Boutique in North Canton

It wouldn’t be much of a Small Business Saturday here on the blog if we didn’t talk for a minute about a….local small business. Brilliant, right?

I think I can speak for Lisa as well as myself when I say that we’ve both been making an effort to spend a whole lot more of our money with local vendors and a whole lot less at major shopping chains and discount stores. … Read More
