Downtown Canton Flea at Deli Ohio -- Canton, OH

This is the second year for the Downtown Canton Flea and the second flea of 2016 is taking place tomorrow, so I wanted to make sure to post my review from the April Flea to give you an idea of what to expect. We were pretty hungry when we arrived, so we ducked into Deli Ohio to order brunch. We split a Green Chili, Egg, Avocado and Cheese Biscuit Sandwich and a Maple Balsamic Strawberry Parfait. Both were good and a nice amount to tie us over until later, we didn't order coffee, because we heard that there was a coffee truck outside with the vendors.  After breakfast we went outside to check out the vendors. There was a wide variety of products available for purchase -- make sure to bring a little cash, most vendors took cards via Square, but it's always best to be safe in case you fall in love with something.   Cards from ChampaignPaper -- check out their Etsy Shop . Other items along the way to our next stop... We fell in love with the

Press Wine Bar -- Cleveland, OH

Several weeks ago we met up with our Wine Wednesday bunch at Press Wine Bar in Tremont upon the recommendation of a mutual friend. We haven't been able to spend too much time in Tremont due to how far away it is from where we live, but it's nice to get up to the Cleveland area every once in a while.

We also ordered a glass of wine and a beer from the Happy Hour menu, because they were at a reduced price. We enjoyed the Arancini and Pear Salad befor

Nauti Vine -- Akron, OH

We visited the Nauti Vine three weeks ago when the weather was just starting to try to turn warm. We love our Wine Wednesdays with friends and were intrigued by how close Nauti Vine was to our new place. I knew from checking out their website that Nauti Vine was close to the Portage Lakes, but I wasn't prepared for how absolutely gorgeous the back patio area was.  There was a Wine and Paint event going on inside the building on the day we visited, so our group decided to stay outside and enjoy the ambiance for a while. Dave and I split a bottle of Delizioso which is a Sauvignon Blanc with hints of pear and kiwi. Overall, we thought the Delizioso was just okay, we love trying new wines though and will be back to try other varieties.  One of our friends ordered the Sierra Vista which is a Merlot. As the vine connoisseur of our group, it's always important to get his approval on locations we visit. He ended up liking the Sierra Vista, so o
