Town Hall #3: A Pedestrian- and Bicycle-Friendly Dayton

Just and FYI to anyone interested.

Town Hall #3: A Pedestrian- and Bicycle-Friendly Dayton. Learn what the City of Dayton is doing to more effectively balance the needs of pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists.

As the historic center of our region, Dayton's inner core was originally designed not for cars, but for pedestrians, bicyclists, horses, and streetcars. As Americans are now increasingly choosing communities known for walk ability and bicycle amenities, this can give older center cities an advantage. We invite you to share your thoughts on how to capitalize on and enhance our alternative transportation assets. Planners and engineers will also discuss current projects and plans for benchmarking Dayton's progress towards achieving Bicycle-Friendly Community status through the League of American Bicyclists.

New Hot Head BurritoLocations Coming

Hot Head Burrito is opening up some new locations throughout Dayton. I am a fan of Hot Head so if you go there try not to compare it to Chipolte because they are not really close to the same thing. Hot Head has more choices of what you can put on your order. Another cool thing is they have different bowl sizes you can order. For all the details check this out Full Story. Hot Head Burrito Menu

St. Patrick's Day in Dayton Ohio

When most people think about St. Patrick's day they usually think about Boston, NY,NY Chicago or even New Orleans. But Dayton Ohio has by far one of the most fun St. Patrick's days around. The last 2 years I have been out of town for St. Patrick's day. I was in Chicago 2 years ago and NY NY last year. I will have to say that the parade in NY is a sight to behold. Non-Stop bagpipe bands for a solid 3 hrs. If you have never heard a 100 piece or more piper band then you are definitely missing out on an incredible sound.

Chicago was a good time but the sad thing was no one went all out with Green and costumes like they do in Dayton, OH. The green river was sweet and the pubs are wonderful. But there was no, one real place to hang and party. Everyone went into a small pub and pretty much stayed there. Unlike in Dayton where they set up huge party tents at pubs and have a huge party all day long. The vibe in NY for St. Patrick's day was pretty fun. Everyone was dressing up and having a great time just partying all day it seemed like.The pubs were hard to get into due to so many people partying. It was pretty cool it was like half the city was working and the other half was partying.

So now I'm back in Dayton this year for the celebration and looking forward to hanging out with all my friends this year and having a great St. Patrick's day in Dayton like no other place I have been to.
Raise a Pint and listen to som pippers for tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day in Dayton, OH and I have never to been to a better party.... Yet!

Two of my photos from St. Patricks day and a video.
