I'm visiting the parents over the holidays, and getting together with an old college friend for cocktails, possibly nosh. Tonight.
We'd like something for adults, since we mostly plan on tippling and catching up. Nothing with extra/wrong consonants in the name (i.e., Traxx, Champps, Winnerz, like that). Minimal televisions.
Location should be the Ashtabula/Ravenna/Warren triangle, as she has to get home to Ashtabula in a reasonable amount of time. Cost isn't as big a concern as quiet, relaxed drinking, chatting, and good chow.
She doesn't seem eager to run to Cleveland, and I don't want to take her out as far as Akron.
The Aurora Inn has been recommended to me, and my AAA guide (whose record is spotty at best) suggests Opus Twenty One out by Warren.
And what to I do in my hour of need? I cry Bon Appetit! and let slip the Hounds of Chow!
