Published: Wednesday, June 28, 2017 @ 12:41 PM

Canal Street Arcade & Deli sets opening date

An iconic Dayton building has new life thanks to Ms. Pac-Man, Centipede, gourmet sandwiches, craft beer and a good bit of elbow grease.

Canal Street Arcade and Deli celebrates its public opening today, Wednesday, June 28, at  308 E. First St., the former home of the much-beloved music venue Canal Street Tavern. 

>> Canal Street Tavern fans say goodbye to venerable venue

>> Street named for local music icon to be dedicated

We got a sneak peek inside of the renovated building that dates back to 1900. 

One thing is clear from the moment you walk in, Canal Street Arcade and Deli is about more than classic arcade games and a banging beer list. 

>> Check out these amazing photos of the new Canal Street Arcade and Deli

Here are just a few of our favorite things. 

👾 1.) The return of The Champ

There was a disturbance in the Sandwich Force when Rob Strong closed Fifth Street Wine and Deli in January 2017. 

>> Daytonian of the Week: Rob Strong

Fans of his gourmet sammiches wondered if their favorites would make it to the new place. 

Good news, friends: The Champ and other sammys perfected at Fifth Street  are back... and Rob and the gang have added pizza to the menu. 

>> Did your favorite Fifth Street Deli sandwiches make it to Canal Street Arcade & Deli?

Canal Street Arcade served samples of the pizzas and sammys during a preview party. 

The falafel sandwiches can’t be stopped. The Nuclear Sub will blow your head off.

👾 2.) The windows

Apparently Canal Street and Canal Public House, the business that followed it when it closed in 2013, had windows the whole time. 

Who knew? 

Canal Street Arcade and Deli has uncovered them to let the sun shine in. 

Customers can lounge on comfy chairs set up on the bar’s former stage and catch a few rays while sipping on suds.

3.) The jukebox

Imagine this: a real, old-school jukebox with actual CDs. 

The arcade even has a special “Never Tame Your Dayton” option featuring modern and classic music from the Gem City. 

>> Downtown bar closing, blames meter maids, city 

👾  4.) The patio

Canal Street Arcade patio will surely get the attention of people heading to Dayton Dragons games or home to the soon-to-be-open Delco Lofts.

👾 5.) The naughty claw

The restaurant’s five or so pinball machines and claw game are the only things customers are required to pay a quarter to play. 

Not every prize in the claw game are  for the kids if you know what we mean.. wink, wink

We mean there are adult-themed items among the stufffed toys in the Hot Stuff claw game

👾 6.) The stickers

The pews might be gone, but hints of the old Canal Street are throughout Canal Street Arcade and Deli.

None is bigger and bolder than the sticker wall that pays tribute to Canal Street’s green room where stickers covered nearly every surface.

Stickers from bands that played Canal Street greet you right after you turn the corner that leads to the bar. 

👾 7.) The bathrooms

They are real nice. You might even want to sit down in them. Big improvement if you remember the old ones. 

Ms. Pac-Man is on the ladies room wall and surely approves.

👾 8.) The bar staff

The business has an impressive craft beer list and will serve cocktails created by some of the best bartenders in town.

It’s time to sink your teeth into this grub at the Ohio Renaissance Festival 

Published: Friday, September 01, 2017 @ 6:11 PM

A look at some of our favorite Dayton-area fall festivals.

It is time to eat (and drink) your way through the 16th century. 

There'll be jousters, fire jugglers, blacksmiths and hundreds of other eye-catching sights at the 2017 Ohio Renaissance Festival, but you'll be no lord nor lady if you miss out on the grub that once gobbled.

Giant "turkey leggs" (and that's not a typo) are among the most glowing symbols of the festival held on a 30-acre, re-created 16th century village just down the road at 10542 East Ohio 73 in Harveysburg.

Turkey leg: Hoist up a Turkey Leg, probably the most popular food du jour at the Ohio Renaissance Festival. Plentiful and tender, these turkey legs are cooked to perfection at the Aleing Knight Pub, ready for you to sink your teeth right into the juicy meat. Prepare thyself for a non-stop, day-long adventure by visiting www.renfestival.com.

>>  7 fall festivals we just cannot wait for

Turkey legs are far from the only fare sold at the festival, now in its 28th year and third year under new ownership.

>> MORE: New Renaissance Festival owners plan changes

TIMES AND COST 

Everything from fish and chips to hot apple dumplings to haggis to bangers and mash can be found at the festival, which is staged from 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. nine Saturdays and Sundays Sept. 2 through Oct. 29 , as well as on Labor Day.

>> PHOTOS: Ohio Renassance Festival 2017 

General Admission is slightly less expensive this year compared to last. Adults get in for $22.50 and children ages 5 to 12 are admitted for $9.50 at the box office.

ON TO THE FOOD

Below is  some 16th century-inspired food you can sink your 21st century teeth into at 2017 Ohio Renaissance Festival.

>> 25 September food events to help you fall in love with fall

NEW GRUB 

The festival is has a medieval theme, but that doesn’t mean organizers are against change. 

Ren Festival spokeswoman Cheryl Bucholtz said new options include The Chocolate RavenArchibald Drake’s and KJ’s Cajun Cuisine.

From the owners of Holly B’s Sweets in nearby Waynesville, The Chocolate Raven will sell a selection of chocolate and fudge treats. 

Archibald Drake’s, from the owners of the Nacho Pig food truck from Clark County, will serve fish and chips. 

KJ’s Cajun Cuisine will serve gumbo, po’boy sandwiches, beignets and similar food. 

BREADY, SET, BOWL! 

Minstel’s Mac & Cheese in a bread bowl: To prepare thyself with the energy needed for a day at the Ohio Renaissance Festival, you’ll want to load up on this delicious Old World treat. The hearty bread is baked fresh and topped with a cheese covered pasta that will make your mouth water. Prepare thyself for a non-stop, day-long adventure by visiting www.renfestival.com.

They kept things simple in the 16th century, so it should be no surprise that a place called the Bread Bowl would sell bread bowls. You'll find salads and a host of soups and stews. 

Soups include chili, Peasant's Potato Soup, Westminster Stew, Minstrel's Mac & Cheese and a spinach artichoke dip bowl.

Bucholtz says the Bread Bowl is a popular spot when fall temperatures arrive.

HOT LEGGS 

Ohio Renaissance Festival attendee Seth Roshon of Baltimore, OH bites into a turkety leg on the Renaissance Park grounds in Harveysburg, Ohio Saturday. The 19th annual festival opened Saturday and will run on Labor Day then on 8 weekends (Saturday and Sunday) through October 19. Staff Photo by Jim Witmer 08/30/08

Did we mention the turkey leggs? We assume the extra "g" is because they are extra good and really big —about 2 pounds each. About 35,000 turkey leggs are sold each year. 

THE OTHER BIRD 

Turkey isn't the only fowl to be served at Ren Fest.

Bourbon chicken -- grilled chicken covered in a bourbon sauce and placed on a bed of rice -- is also among favorites. 

IN A PICKLE

The festival features a new way to enjoy an adult beverage without the kids.

By popular demand, Bucholtz said The Naughty Bawdy Pub Show, an hour of "bawdy humor, cigars, and ale for ages 21 and over" will be held each day from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the The Dirty Duchess. Admission is $15.  

BBQ

  

Two summers ago, 1572 Roadhouse Bar-B-Q opened its doors to the public on the grounds of the Ohio Renaissance Festival.

The restaurant’s menu includes  Baby Back Ribs, Chicken, Pulled Pork, and Smoked Sliced Beef.  

STREET TACOS AND SHAWARMA 

Last year, Ren Fest added Garden of Eatin, Marco Polo's Bistro and Jerusalem Cafe.  

Burgers and such will be found in the Garden of Eatin. Go to Jerusalem Cafe for Middle Eastern foods like baklava and shawarma. Marco Polo's will serve street tacos. 

While you are at it, be on the look for Earl of Corn and swing by the Aleing Knight Pub for a list of munchies that includes Scotch eggs, onion petals and brownie bites.

UPDATE: 

An health emergency is forcing a Dayton food truck’s closure.  

Katie Marks announced on Facebook Tuesday that she will close The Wicked ‘Wich of Dayton. 

In July, Marks said she would sell the truck. She said health issues are forcing her to close it instead. 

>> MORE: Your guide to Dayton-area food truck events in September

Marks was recently diagnosed with a tumor on her pituitary gland.
She posted the following on her personal and business pages: 

“I have not quite been myself this year. I have been moody, tired, had headaches, and gained a significant amount of weight despite eating well quite regularly. I've been flaky and double booked events like crazy without remembering, and the thought of waking up and dealing with people seemed so daunting at times because i just felt like I needed rest. I made a big decision to sell my business because I thought that I was stressed and burned out, but it turns out it was a deeper issue related to hormones. Today at the doctor I was officially diagnosed with a tumor on my pituitary gland. It is a hefty little mother and is pushing on my optic nerve, leaving my vision to being pretty weird and hard to recognize people when I'm out and about.”

The  pituitary gland is at the base of the brain and controls several of the body’s hormone glands. 

BENEFIT PLANNED 

Wicked ‘Wich’s last event will be at RiverScape MetroPark in downtown Dayton 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on September 13.

The Yellow Cab, 700 E. 4th St. in Dayton, is organizing a sandwich food truck rally to support Marks. 

A dollar from each sandwich or specified item sold at Yellow Cab’s food truck rally set for 5 to 10 p.m. Friday, Sept. 15 will be donated to Marks.
Trucks participating in the “Sandwich Rally for Katie” rally include Ramen Rickshaw, El Meson, Smokin’ Bee-Bee-Q, Thai1On, Greek Street Food Truck, The Drunken Waffle, Hunger Paynes Food Truck, Sweet P's Handcrafted Ice Pops, Flying Santucci Bros. and Creme de la Creme Cakery.

EARLIER:

Fans of one Dayton’s favorite sandwiches, take notice. 

The lady behind the Lady Marmalade plans to put her food truck on the market.

Katie Marks said she will sell The Wicked ‘Wich of Dayton food truck after the end of the food truck season in October. 

>> MORE: Local food-truck pioneer puts cupcake business up for sale

Marks said the whole business — the name, truck and recipes — will be sold.

She launched the business three years ago to prove she had what it took.

“I wanted a chance to cook food for a living without a lot of corporate restrictions,” Marks said.  

The Lady Marmalade was voted second best on Dayton.com’s Best of Dayton "Best Sandwich” category.

>> MORE: This sandwich edged out Lady Marmalade

The Lady Marmalade includes two pieces of toasted buttery bread, with a layer of orange marmalade and turkey breast with almonds covered with a freckling of cilantro flakes.

Marks says it has been hard at times to operate the truck on her own. Many area trucks are managed by a husband-wife team or partners, she said.

“Not only is it a lot of maintenance, but a lot of time,” she said. “It is pretty much a 24/7 gig.”

>> MORE: You seriously don’t want to miss these upcoming food truck events

She may open a condiment business with sauces perfected on the truck and plans to spend more time volunteering with organizations like Building Bridges and TJ's Place of Hope.

Building Bridges helps at-risk youth involved in the Montgomery County Juvenile Court.

TJ’s Place aims to provide “a safe place for teens and young adults to gather in a confidential environment for recovery from addiction and other destructive behaviors.”

The Dayton native hopes the next owners support nonprofits as she has tried to do. 

“I hope that whoever takes it over has the same mission to make Dayton a better place and help continue its steady rise,” she said.

Not so much a newcomer as a new location, the Buckin’ Donkey recently opened at the former site of Murray’s. The owners are staunch Pittsburgh sports fans, but you can probably talk them into putting the Buckeyes on for you on gameday. Their specialty burgers are ridiculous.

 HOURS: 4 p.m.-1 a.m. Monday: 11 a.m.-1 a.m. Tuesday-Sunday

Young's Jersey Dairy has a not so secret weapon, cheese curds.

Mooove over cheese heads! Something fried and cheesy is aboard a local restaurant's new food truck. 

Young’s Jersey Dairy near Yellow Springs is now selling cheese curds, ice cream and panini-style grilled cheese sandwiches from its very own food truck aptly named Young’s on the Moove.

“We wanted to help get our product on the road and enjoy some of the festivals,” said Ben Young, one of the Young’s owners.

Cheese curd varieties include  White Cheddar Curds, Garlic Cheddar Curds, Cajun Cheddar Curds, Italian Cheddar Curds, Dill Cheddar Curds, Cheddar Ranch Curds and Sweet Basil Garlic Cheddar Curds. 

“All of our cheese is from our own cows,” Young said.  

Young’s celebrates its 59th year in business this year, but the family’s history in farming dates long before then. Young’s great-grandfather built Young’s red barn in 1869. His father and uncles started selling beans, milk and hay in 1958.
