Stark After Dark Wineries

A hand-painted crest with a knight’s steel helmet ringed with plumes, a shield, sword and crown welcomes you to one of Stark County’s newest spots to sip wine—honey wine, that is. McAlpine Meadery, which opened a year ago, brews artisan honey wine, also known as mead. Decorated in medieval accoutrements that reflect the owners’ love of history, McAlpine Meadery offers 30 different flavors, including orange blossom, apricot, blackberry, blueberry, strawberry, pear and star-thistle, which is made with star-thistle honey, raisins and tea.

Stark After Dark Dive Bars

Trying to define a dive bar is a little like former U.S. Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart’s attempt to define pornography in 1964: “I shall not today attempt further to define the kinds of material I understand to be embraced … but I know it when I see it.” It’s safe to say most restaurant-chain bars, such as a TGI Friday’s, don’t qualify as a dive bar. Nor would anything with “Martini” in its business name.
