When The Nighlight Cinema in downtown Akron closed March 15, the organization had to figure out what to do next. Operating an intimate 46-seat movie theater wasn’t safe during the coronavirus pandemic. And The Nighlight always has operated as not just a place to screen independent films, but a place to bring people together.
We all know about the importance of sunscreen. But while you’re busy making sure you didn’t miss a spot of SPF at the beach, you might be neglecting another area that deserves protecting. The sun can damage your scalp and hair.
This summer is going to look a little different than last year. But there’s no rule saying beach reads can’t be enjoyed on the front porch. Dig out the mini umbrellas, add one to a homemade cocktail and escape into a new book.
With events canceled, vacations postponed and most gatherings on hold, it looks like we’ll be spending lots of time at home this summer. But staying nearby doesn’t mean spending the day inside. If you’ve got an outdoor space, now is the perfect time for a family patio party.
Sometimes, you just need to get outside and take a breath of fresh air. The Mindfulness Walk at Petros Lake Park encourages parkgoers to do just that. The 1-mile trail, which opened last year, encourages visitors to practice mindfulness—the “nonjudgmental awareness that comes from paying purposeful attention to the present moment,” according to Stark County Mental Health & Addiction Recovery.
Later this month, thousands of runners will descend on Canton streets. The seventh annual Pro Football Hall of Fame Marathon is set for April 24 through 26. While the highlight of the weekend is the 13.1-mile half marathon and 26.2-mile marathon, the event offers something for everyone, from ultra athletes to kids to couch potatoes.
As we transition from winter to spring, I find myself torn between reaching for familiar, comfortable media and seeking out something new. It’s so much easier to rewatch The Office on Netflix for the fifth time than to click on something unfamiliar. Or to reread a favorite book instead of walking down to the library for 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. We heard great things from friends and coworkers who’d visited and had high hopes for our own stop in mid-December.
