Sometimes I think the best food comes from little hole-in-the-wall places. We drive past them every day, but we don’t usually notice them. I love how the feeling inside these small restaurants is so intimate and cozy; the surroundings aren’t too loud so you are able to hear your friends/family.
Every first Friday of the month, the city of Canton, Ohio hosts an event called “First Friday.” That part is easy enough to remember, huh? The website states “First Friday is a monthly party in the downtown Canton Arts District featuring themed music, performance and visual arts events and always a few surprises for adults and children. It is primarily a self-guided tour of local art galleries, studios, stores and restaurants.”
Last night, I met up with one of my high school best friends and perused through downtown and all the quaint little art galleries. Isn’t it wonderful to meet up with old friends and it feels as if nothing has changed? As I get older I find it so fun to catch up with old friends and hear about their amazing opportunities and what they have been up to.
So, the nitty gritty:
Our first stop was at Thatsa Wrapp. I went there a couple First Fridays ago with my boyfriend, Cory, and instantly fell in love with the place. It’s quite a small venue that doesn’t take reservations, so get there before 5 or you will have to wait a while for an open table or bar spot. As the name suggests, they specialize in wraps that are SO GOOD.
After this fabulous dinner, we walked around to all the art galleries then ended the night at Carpe Diem, a cute little coffee shop that had live music for the night.
So, the next time you pass a little shop or restaurant in your town, stop in and see what it’s all about! What’s your favorite “hole-in-the-wall” place? I’d love to hear about it!
