Where will you be - CYO Complex on Holland-Sylvania or the Lucas County Rec Center? It depends on what kind of dining/entertainment you're looking for. Fun bar/restaurant atmospheres near those places include Shawn's Irish Pubs (1 on Bancroft "near" the CYO and 1 on Heatherdowns near Lucas County Rec) and Paddy Jacks on Heatherdowns. Trotters on Heatherdowns across from Paddy Jacks is a good atmosphere when they have live music.
The Zoo, near Lucas County Rec, is a great zoo which I prefer over the Cbus Zoo. I haven't seen their new aquarium yet, but it's supposed to be very impressive. The original Tony Packos in Oregon, thus the Jamie Farr pic posted by ICouldNotGoFor3, is good, but the new one near Mud Hens stadium downtown offers the ability to bar hop between SEVERAL fun spots.
Saturday night in Toledo, Ohio is like being nowhere at all.
All through the day how the hours rush by, you sit in the park and you watch the grass die.
Ah, but after the sunset, the dusk and the twilight, when shadows of night start to fall.
They roll back the sidewalk precisely at ten and people who live there are not seen again.
Just two lonely truckers from Great Falls, Montana and a salesman from places unknown
all huddled together in downtown, Toledo to spend their big night all alone.
You ask how I know of Toledo, Ohio? Well I spent a week there one day.
They've got entertainment to dazzle your eyes: go visit the bakery and watch the buns rise.
Ah, but let's not forget that the folks of Toledo unselfishly gave us the scale.
No springs, honest weight, that's the promise they made,
so smile and be thankful next time you get weighed.
And "wive and wet wive", let this be our motto, let's let the sleeping dogs lie.
And here's to the dogs of Toledo, Ohio, ladies, we bid you goodbye.
RIP John Denver!
