Wooster Jam: Be There or Be Square This Saturday

I am getting excited about Saturday, which is when the 2013 version of the Wooster Jam will be held at the Wayne County fairgrounds.

WoosterJam

This is the third annual Wooster Jam, and it marks the third time I will be performing magic at the event. It is a neat event because it brings together a variety of artists, from visual to performing to musical. Whether its dancing, singing, film, art or poetry, the Wooster Jam has always brought together a diverse group.

Speaking of diversity, for the second year, the Wooster Jam, which runs from noon to 11 p.m., will be held in conjunction with the Wooster Ethnic Fair, so come out to the fairgrounds this Saturday and experience a variety of cultures, foods and arts.

The First Amendment, Right On

The First Amendment Bar and Grill, a new restaurant in Wooster, Ohio, is looking to make its mark with a patriotic flare.

A friend, Dave Rhoad, and I visited the restaurant to get some lunch. While I do not have enough information to write a review of the restaurant, I was impressed with the quality and taste of the food.

Dave had The¬†Filibuster, don’t ask me what it is, and I had the Lincoln, a sandwich made of slowly roasted beef and served like a French dip, except on a round bun instead of French bread. We also had the Yankee Doodle Noodle, which is two gigantic balls of macaroni and cheese breaded and deep fried and covered in cheese sauce.¬†We both enjoyed our meal.

Here’s what I think makes the place interesting:

  • Every morning at 9 a.m. they get out the P.A. system and sing the National Anthem;
  • The restaurant is open from about 7 a.m.-4 p.m. daily with an interesting menu, and it shares space with a coffee bar from 7 a.m.-11 a.m.;
  • It provides an atmosphere for civil discussion to promote better understanding.

If you are in Wooster, you might want to check them out. They are right next door to Matsos Family Restaurant, a legendary downtown restaurant that serves great Italian and Greek food.
