What's your favorite vacation, local hangout, pub, even man cave getaway place particularly in the chilly Ohio and/or other place you call home?

Doesn't need to be fancy just your favorite....The Browns Board would qualify for you really cheap bastards. :lol:

Whoa cool, reminds me of a few great but long gone places from the mill days in Y-town, OH.

The Victory Tavern on Steel Street, I just saw where the owner during the great times just passed away, Ed Fajack. On 3-11 closed up that place many, many times, used to give Ed a ride to his house on my bike.

Satan's Inferno on the far west side of downtown, I wasn't a regular there at all but it was wild, great bikes.

And the old Niles, OH landmark Jimmie's Inn, all long gone but not forgotten. ;)

I like weekend getaways to put-in-bay during the summer time.
 
As far as watering holes go, I like merry arts in lakewood plus you can bring the dog there on the patio - great wings too. Two bucks is a decent place if you wanna get smashed with a 20 dollar bill and they have multiple locations now.
 
I'm also quite fond of the brew garden in middleburg, for no other reason than the fact that they have an awesome patio.
 
Hofbrauhaus can also get an honorable mention, particularly when their outdoor beer garden is open (also dog friendly) - though it's not particularly cheap.
 
I don't really have any one particularly bar/pub I go to though - but I don't find myself at the bar very often nowadays anyway.
 
Taking my dog to the bar is nice, but he's gorgeous so when he's with me then everybody talks to me - which is good and bad sometimes.

As an avid traveler, and as a participant on a travel message board, not dissimilar to the one here  (but no profanity allowed), I always tell people that my favorite trip is the next one I am taking.  And that is very true.  So, aside from spending a few days with my son in NY state over spring break, my favorite trip is the next one that I am taking and going on a tour of southern New England.  Conn/RI/Boston area.  That will be in early June.

 

As for favorite restaurants/bars/hangouts, we have some regular places that my wife and I like to go to.  I doubt anyone would really know these names as they are very local to my area:   Hodge's Cafe in Barberton.  The Wolf Creek Tavern, and the Wolf Creek Winery. The SilverRun Winery. The Houston Pub.  Alexandri's Restaurant for Breakfast. With my blood sugar issues I can no longer partake of my favorite Pizza parlors, like Angie's, Trecaso's, Luigis.   We were regulars at our local Bob Evans...but for some reason that place has taken a serious dive in service, quality etc.  New ownership I believe. There are a couple or three Mexican restaurants locally that we go to as well.  And Ming Garden, Chinese food. 

 

On the rare occasions that I get up to the Cleveland area these days, I would go to old favorites from long ago:  the Harbor Inn on the west bank of the flats.  Then there is the Academy Tavern up on Woodland, near Shaker Square.  Corky and Lenny's on the east side.  But, it has been a while.

I try to trout fly fish.

 

TRIED to fly fish once in the ocean & caught a small pompano. We're talking a literal fingerling!  LOL

In freshwater, I do fine with trout, steelhead, & bass, but prefer big bluegill on 2 & 3 weight fly rods.

I always have something wrong fly fishing for trout.

 

The fish has to be famished for me to catch it on a fly rod. Ultra light spinning reel is different.

Sounds somewhat familiar, where I grew up we had a creek that flowed through our property that fed into a lake about 1,200 feet away, the lake was about 4 1/2 miles around and another about 10 miles around. Both stocked with bass, trout, blue gills and others plus one of my favorites nice crappies.

My dad fixed TVs on the side and fixed the lake watchman's TV and other stuff so I fished my whole young life for FREE. We kids had our secret paths cut into the back bays where the fishing was best. Often I brought home a stringer full of fish....fileted them right up and froze or had a fish fry right then.

Great memories, miss that old homestead plus I could shoot my guns there too.

In Missouri and a couple of times in Arkansas - White river and Norfolk river.

 

I use nymphs, woolly boogers, sometimes dry flies if there is a hatch. Im reading a book that swears by scuds as the main part of Ozark trouts diet.

 

Do you remember Brewer and Shipley? One toke over the line? I met Jim Shipley on the river in Missouri. He lives down there and fly fishes all the time. Funny and unpretentious. He lost his wading staff that day in the river and was all upset about it. Probably a millionaire 10 times over and worried about losing a $50 wading staff.

I have thought about taking my son to Missouri on a more or less fishing trip.   To Lake Ozark area.  (he is the fisherman, not I).

Do you think that would be a good place to go?
