Toledo Arts Zone

(my August 2007 post)

Aug 22, 2007 Toledo Blade story

The 22-block "arts zone," which has yet to be delineated by signs or officially named, also will serve as a catalyst for economic growth, making Toledo a more desirable place for businesses and young professionals, proponents said.

The art district is in a southeast portion of downtown and covers parts of the warehouse district on St. Clair Street. It is bounded by Huron Street, I-75 and the Amtrak station, and the Maumee River and the planned Middlegrounds Metropark.

Betty's Salad Dressing

The info below the fold is from my April 2010 posting in a thread that was started in August 2007 about Timko's Soup & Such, which was an old eatery, located at the corner of Douglas Rd and Sylvania Ave.

Betty's Salad and its signature dressing were and still are Toledo traditions. In 2015, I can enjoy an excellent Betty's Salad at the Oliver House. Some other eateries offer Betty's Salad, and some local stores sell the dressing. And both can be made at home.

Trilby: The lost village

(my Jan 2006 post that contains content published by historymike.)

A cursory glance through any of the telephone directories that clutter my living room yields several dozen listings for businesses containing “Trilby” in their names. From Trilby Animal Hospital to Trilby United Methodist Church, the amorphous locality known as Trilby survives in a number of Toledo businesses, churches, and even an elementary school.

Pizzuti unveils Marina District plan - 2005

(my Oct 11, 2005 post that excerpted a Toledo Free Press story)

Ron Pizzuti, chairman and CEO of The Pizzuti Companies, announced the plan for The Marina District on Oct. 11. $19 million of remediation work has already been conducted to transform the brownfield site into developable land. Construction on the project will begin shortly, with some elements coming on line in 2007.

The plan includes a 5,000-seat amphitheater, 180 public boat docks, a passenger terminal to bring charters back to the Great Lakes, a recreational ice rink, a riverwalk and a bike path, 216 units of market-rate residential development and 45 commercial properties, including restaurants and shops.

Simple outing with friends - Thu, Dec 12, 2012

(my Wednesday, December 18, 2002 blog post)

Five of us had dinner at Pepe's in the [Erie Street] Market. It's not a real Mexican restaraunt. Chips out of the bag and salsa not homemade. Then the four of us went to the Bronze Boar for cigars and beverages. We sprawled out on the leather chair, sofa, and love seat. I had a 12 dollar Romeo and Julietta, which was eight inches long. I drank a cabernet. Someone else joined us at the Boar, and then we later went to the Durty Bird. I had a Guiness there. It was a fun evening.

Toledo's strategic plan for the Arts and Culture - November 2003

(my Nov 16, 2003 message board post)

I cannot find a digital version of the strategic plan online.- PDF file - The final draft of the plan was handed out to those attending the Mayor's Summit last Friday. The Blade said 800 people attended the summit. 5000 copies of the plan were created, so there are more available some how. Maybe contact the Arts Commission for a copy. It's a worthwhile document to read. I'll provide some highlights from the 20-page document.

President's Day weekend snow storm - February 2003

(my Feb 17, 2003 message board post)

Parts of Ohio are under 10-20 inches of snow this morning, but not around here. We got nothing this weekend. Mother Nature, however, is tossing some consolation snow at us today. Toledo is suppose to get a couple of inches, which will give us a total snow depth of a couple of inches.
