In middle school, we all were taught the importance of deodorant. I remember way too vividly some of the boys in my grade rolling on the Old Spice and dousing themselves in Axe body spray. Middle school is a rough time, whether you smell good, bad or overpowering.
In the era of smartphones and streaming shows, it may be easy to let the summer fly by while staring at one device or another. That’s essentially how my winter and spring flew by, but this summer, I intend to change that.
By this time of year, it can be hard to remember exactly what we were thinking when we finalized the editorial calendar for the whole year back in October. Our media kit still mentions Gourmet Legacy as the cover story for this issue. But as you can tell, this issue isn’t about that.
May 18, North Canton Craft Beer Festival: The North Canton Craft Beer Festival will showcase eight Stark County region brewers and their special guests at MAPS Air Museum. Local breweries include Canton Brewing Company, Lockport Brewery, Maize Valley Winery & Craft Brewery, Muskellunge Brewing Company, Paradigm Shift Brewing, Royal Docks Brewing Company, Sandy Springs Brewing Company and Shale Brewing Company. Plus, each local brewery will invite a surprise “guest” brewer. In total, there will be 16 brewers, and attendees will have the chance to sample 25 brews. Those looking for extra time to chat with brewers, sample beer and make a “snacklace” can purchase a VIP ticket, which grants access an hour early with entertainment options not available to standard ticket holders. The event will be from 5 to 8 p.m. for standard ticket holders and 4 to 8 p.m. for VIP ticket holders. The cost is $50 for VIP, $35 for pre-sale, $40 at the door and $10 for designated drivers. For more information, contact the North Canton Chamber of Commerce at 330-499-5100. squareup.com/store/northcantonchamber
The latest craze on beauty blogs seems to be honey. But not for the reason you think. No, the sites aren’t promoting that you eat it. Rather, they’re telling you to slather it all over your face as a cleanser. Sounds pretty messy to me.
A couple months back at an editorial meeting, I casually mentioned that the Feast Awards issue was coming up. I put a little feeler out to see what the team would want to taste-test and judge this year. Someone mentioned donuts might be fun, and I immediately decided that’s what we would judge.
