Heralded by Paste Magazine as one of the country’s most underrated beer destinations, the third annual BEER! A Celebration of Dayton Brewing is set for Saturday, July 16 at The Yellow Cab from 1-5pm. “It’s crazy to think that four years ago Dayton didn’t have a single operating brewery,” Brian Johnson, Organizer said. “Even more amazing is the quality of all of breweries that have popped up since then.

Scouting locations for Dive Bar Tuesday is usually pretty straight forward. We listen to the readers, make lists, and visit the sites as time allows. More often than not when we arrive, there is no doubt we are going to a dive bar. The location is small and usually hidden, there is not lots of light, and the people we see know each other. The first one we attended, Miami Valley Sports Bar, was the only venue we visited where we started to question if it had jumped to the next level. There was good food, plenty of room, and they were in the process of expanding and making the place better. Is … [Read more...] about Dive Bar Tuesday – Mack’s Tavern
The city of Dayton’s first brewery turns three this June and they’re doing it the only way they know how, with a Toxic Brew Company Jackson Street Block Party! “It’s so fun. We basically look for any excuse we can get to shut down the street for a block party,” Shane Juhl, Toxic Owner said. “The Three Year birthday party is going to be special too. We’ll have one-off tappings in the brewery and under the tent outside, and music and food trucks and games. I think it’s safe to say that it’ll be the most fun you’ve had at a three year birthday party.” In addition to great beers, there will … [Read more...] about Toxic Brew Company Throws Three Year Anniversary Block Party
There has been a theme in the last few dive bars we have explored. They are small and intimate venues, where is it hard not to meet know people because you were in pretty close proximity to them. Bar space was limited, and there was not much light in the room, which tends to bring people closer together. Space is expensive; unless you have a good deal, what you pay for the building, as well as its maintenance, can be costly. This could be a reason that dive bars tend to end up in places that are hard to find or out of the way. Many of the ones that are on our list are out of the way places … [Read more...] about Dive Bar Tuesday – Dr. Doodles Lounge

In 1865, a mathematician named Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (His pen name was Lewis Carroll.) wrote a book about a little girl who has an amazing adventure in a faraway land. Alice’s adventures begin when she spies a white rabbit run by as she is drowsily listening to her sister. The rabbit is in a petticoat and muttering about how late he is as he stares at his watch. She follows him into his rabbit hole, and that is where her adventures in Wonderland begin. Ever since that book, the white rabbit has been a symbol of diving into something mysterious with a fantastic payoff. Adrienne’s White … [Read more...] about Dive Bar Tuesday – Adrienne’s White Rabbit Lounge

Hard to believe it was a year ago that Chappys opened their second restaurant, Chappys Social House at 7880 Washington Village Drive in Washington Township. The 340 seat restaurant, which features 48 taps, a private room that seats 70 and great littel patio, has proved to be a big success.
