  5. The two owners ended up not working well together. They were doing pretty good business.
  6. Spotted Owl expands, adds to cocktail culture in Akron (photos, video) Posted Nov 07, 5:30 AM By Marc Bona, cleveland.com AKRON, Ohio - Will Hollingsworth wasn’t born with a martini shaker in his hand. "I got into this business not because I loved cocktails but because I loved bars," said Hollingsworth, whose Spotted Owl is a well-regarded staple that just celebrated its five-year anniversary in Cleveland's Tremont neighborhood. Life was moving so well he opened Spotted Owl in Akron on Oct. 21. https://www.cleveland.com/entertainment/2019/11/spotted-owl-expands-adds-to-cocktail-culture-in-akron-photos-video.html
  7. Eighty-Three Brewery settling in to Akron’s East End (photos, video) Posted Nov 06, 5:45 AM By Marc Bona, cleveland.com CLEVELAND, Ohio - The first thing you might wonder about when you walk into Eighty-Three Brewery on Akron's East End is why the name. Not the area code - that's 330. There's an Ohio 83, but it doesn't cut through Summit County. It's not the 83rd brewery in the area. Is the owner's favorite Cleveland Browns player Ricky Seals-Jones, No. 83? Nah. https://www.cleveland.com/entertainment/2019/11/eighty-three-brewery-settling-in-to-akrons-east-end-photos-video.html

  10. Just daydreaming until something substantial comes along.
  11. They have a newer "icon" (too early to use that monkier). The Tower at PNC Plaza which holds a ton of merit for it environmental / sustainable design. https://www.gensler.com/projects/the-tower-at-pnc-plaza https://www.nextpittsburgh.com/city-design/the-tower-at-pnc-plaza-opens-as-the-greenest-office-building-in-the-world/
  12. It's an affordable housing project which is partially funded through state tax credit allocation. Nobody is given housing through the state tax credit process. Projects are developed by housing developers. It's a long chain of parts and a process that if I tried to explain all the pieces and parts I would probably leave something out or state something incorrectly. But annually there are about 50 projects in the State of Ohio funded through this process. https://www.cleveland.com/akron/2017/08/testa_companies_to_build_new_h.html
  13. As Beacon Journal moves, we pause to remember By Mark Price Beacon Journal/Beaconjournal.com Posted Oct 31, 2019 at 6:50 PM Updated Nov 1, 2019 at 10:46 PM The front step has a dip in the middle. Like a mighty river polishing a granite rock, nearly 90 years of footsteps have eroded the stone entrance. Wingtips, high heels, oxfords, loafers, boots, wedges, sneakers, galoshes, clogs, sandals and even some flip-flops have entered the building at 44 E. Exchange St. Now the footsteps are exiting. https://www.beaconjournal.com/news/20191031/as-beacon-journal-moves-we-pause-to-remember?utm_source=Newsletter&utm_medium=Newsletter: Rubber City Daily&utm_campaign=Rubber City Daily - Akron newsletter
