Episode 509: Dayton Dining – Mudlick Tap House
This special Dayton Dining episode features one of downtown Dayton’s newest restaurants: Mudlick Tap House. Owner Jennifer Dean sits down with Dayton Dining’s Lisa Grigsby and GCP host Libby Ballengee to discuss the unexpected way she became a restauranteur, the inspiration behind the name, her decision to move downtown, and advice to diners, small business owners, and those dreaming of owning their own restaurant! It’s a food for thought, for sure!
Mudlick Tap House is a “gastropub,” pouring high-end beer and cocktails served with chef-inspired food. They are all about getting back to the best type of cuisine… food made from scratch. Their culinary creations are regional variations of traditional pub and tavern fare. They’ve created an inviting, industrial, rustic space with our sleek stainless steel countertop bar, exposed brick walls and handmade wooden tables that lend to an intimate and comfortable dining experience sure to become your favorite spot for good company and good libations.
Jen started the restaurant with her partner Forrest because they wanted a place they could hang out in their hometown, Germantown. The quick success lead them to expansion and relocation to the heart of downtown Dayton.
Before her venture into restaurant life, Jen graduated from Wright State, and then spent years in the Dayton area working in the nonprofit sector raising funds and planning events for local organizations. Forrest is a University of Dayton graduate, who worked in the automotive industry, running high end auto shops. He is also a musician and long time member of Funky G and the Groove machine.

Intro: Able Danger – Chaos
Outro: Caamp – Ohio
For the third year in a row, the Heartfulness Institute of Dayton invites the entire community downtown to Courthouse Square on Thursday Septemeber 21st, 2017 for free, beginner-friendly yoga and meditation sessions. This lovely, community building event celebrates both the autumn equinox and the United Nation’s International Day of Peace.
The idea for this type of “mass meditation” came from Libby Ballengee, a local event organizer, who was inspired by a similar event that was planned for New York City’s Central Park. She dubbed the first event “Dayton Big Quiet” and sought out assistance from meditation experts. Ballengee explains, “It started as a “what if” conversation on Twitter, and the idea took off. It was recommended that I check out the Natural Path Meditation Center in Beavercreek for help, and I’m so glad I did! They were the perfect partner for this event.”
They were perfect for the event because teaching meditation to the community is their speciality. The Natural Path Meditation Center is also known as The Heartfulness Institute of Dayton, a non-profit educational organization. They offer free relaxation, meditation, and yoga classes, as a service to the community, so that everyone has the same tools to manage stress. They are not affiliated with any religions. The meditation trainers simply want to help spread inner peace to all, in an effort to achieve world peace. The Dayton organization has been recognized by the State of Ohio for its significant contributions to the region.
Most recently, the organization opened a center inside the Fairfield Commons Mall, which offers these same free classes. It’s an incredible way to disconnect from our busy, plugged-in world, and simply let our minds rest. You can try out this heart-based meditation style at the meditation center in Beavercreek, the mall location, or downtown at this unique first day of fall event!
