As we transition from winter to spring, I find myself torn between reaching for familiar, comfortable media and seeking out something new.

I counted no less than five birthday celebrations on our visit to A1 Japan Steakhouse. They’re kind of hard to miss. A procession of staff marches to the table led by a famous cartoon mouse banging a drum. Every performance was met with cheers and laughter.
My husband, Dave, and I are big fans of local craft beer, so we were eager to try out one of Stark County’s newest breweries. UnHitched Brewing Co. in Louisville opened at the end of October.

I assume that Sparta Steak House & Lounge has—with the exception of new televisions—looked exactly the same since about 1975. It’s the definition of old school with well-worn vinyl booths, carved wood fixtures and hanging greenery.
