December '17

Put Hunger in Park

Meals on Wheels of Stark & Wayne Counties hosted its first food fest fundraiser, “Put Hunger in Park!” The fundraiser was held in September at Hoover Park in North Canton. The agency exceeded its $70,000 fundraising goal and exceeded its public awareness goal with 1,500 to 2,000 people in attendance.

Garish holiday fun

Think of it as an ugly Christmas sweater party with fancy cocktails that lasts an entire month. That Christmas Bar is a pop-up holiday diversion dreamed up by Scott and Kim Shapiro that is open through December 30, adjacent to their TD’s Tailgate Grill at 2234 Tuscarawas Street W in Canton.

Tremont Coffee Co.

Extend your stay at Tremont Coffee Co. with a Chemex of hot coffee, $6.55. With more than two mugs worth of coffee, you can share or keep it all for yourself. Add a honey butter or brown sugar cinnamon stuffed croissant ($4.95 each) from GourZants to complete your treat.

A holiday tradition

For more than 30 years, the Players Guild Theatre has crafted a holiday tradition. “A Christmas Carol” will return to the stage December 1-17. The Players Guild has mounted a production of the Charles Dickens tale for about 36 years. And for the last 10 years or so, the theater has performed an original musical production of the show.
