Susan Speaks: Road Trip!


I’ve had this tab open in Firefox for awhile now. It’s news from Blabbermouth that Tim “Ripper” Owens, he who inspired Jennifer Aniston and Mark Wahlberg movies, has re-opened what was called Tap House and is now Ripper Owens Tap House.

This is one of those rare times when I can actually do more than dream about going to this place. You see, it’s in Akron, which is only a couple of hours’ drive from Chez West of Mars. They are boasting about a family-friendly menu (darn it. Guess there goes any shot I had of going without the kids) and being able to handle high-volume times of day. They also book national and local acts, as well.

My kind of place. Despite not being able to dump my kids for a few hours. I mean, I LIKE my kids and all and they’re at cool ages. But… being without them for a bit is always a good thing. Otherwise, when they leave the nest, will I know how to act?

Anyone who’s up for a weekend road trip to Akron, let me know and we’ll see what we can work out. That’d be a WAY cool meeting place, no?

    Road trip! Unfortunately, Akron is too far for me to drive, but I’ll be with you in spirit. Report back on what you find (and eat … and drink)
