Where to go and what to do during those rare times you're not eating. Here is our round-up of favorite spots around NEOhio and beyond. Festivals, sporting events, general fun - you'll find it here.
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 MoreRead 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 MoreRead More
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 MoreRead 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 MoreRead 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 MoreRead 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 MoreRead 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 MoreRead 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 MoreRead More
An awesome benefit of having a couple of growing boys is that I’m getting to re-visit all sorts of fun stuff *I* loved growing up (and secretly never outgrew). Like haunted houses. Even better, I get the added joy of watching my kids’ excitement and discovery.… Read MoreRead 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 MoreRead More
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
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
I imagine when most people think of what to see in St. Louis, Missouri (my hometown! go Cards!) they think of the Gateway Arch. It’s an architectural marvel, and something everyone should experience if they’re in the area. So what if my mom thinks it’s ugly.… Read MoreRead More
Ohio was on national television three times last weekend. THREE TIMES IN ONE WEEKEND – that’s great! And each of those spots were nationally acclaimed for being a top-notch facility in their respective sports. Firestone Country Club Golf Course (Akron), Football Hall of Fame (Canton), and Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.… Read MoreRead More
