Times flies when you are sling bourbon. Joseph Head knows that better than most.
Joe, who co-owns The Century Bar in downtown Dayton with Diane Spitzig, started his journey with the bar two decades ago.
Amelia Robinson, host of the new “What Had Happened Was” podcast, sat down with Joe just before his epic bourbon-ey party. Their chat was good to the last drop.
Joe talks about how he went from a rough-around-the-edges, long-haired arrogant youth to a so-legit Kentucky Colonel.

— Sara Levin and Gus Stathes have a love born in a brew.
It makes sense that he popped “the question” to her surrounded by Dayton brews.
Gus, the co-owner of The Barrel House at 417 E. Third St. with Sara, popped the question to her Thursday, May 17 at Warped Wing Brewing Company’s Mr. Mean Funkfest.
The recent Daytonians of the Week met at the brewery’s Mr. Mean event three years ago.
“My bed. Just kidding (but also not), but I guess outside of my bed I would say Warped Wing. Everyone who works there is like family, and has been since before I even moved to Dayton. In addition to that, it’s where Gus and I met, so it’s kind of my happy place.”
Prost, cheers and sláinte, guys.

TRENTON, N.J. — If you suffer from chronic migraines, relief is here.
According to The Associated Press, the Food and Drug Administration last week approved Aimovig, a monthly shot that aims to reduce migraines. The drug, developed by Amgen Inc. and Novartis AG, is "injected monthly just under the skin using a pen-like device," the AP reported. Its price tag: $6,900 annually before insurance.
But how does Aimovig work? The FDA said it blocks "the activity of calcitonin gene-related peptide, a molecule that is involved in migraine attacks." Amgen researchers said participants in one study saw their migraines reduced by half and experienced "minor side effects" like colds, the AP reported.
If Aimovig doesn't sound right for you, you're still in luck: Three similar shots and various pills to combat migraines are in the works.

Most of DCDC’s dancers are currently performing in Europe.
As part of its 50th anniversary celebration, DCDC will present a free summer concert called Street Beats 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. June 9 at Courthouse Square in downtown Dayton.
It will feature performance by DCDC, its training company DCDC2 and a list of guest artists that includes the Miami Valley Dance Company and Xclusive Dance Crew.
A work choreographed by DCDC Artistic Director Debbie Blunden-Diggs to Stevie Wonder’s “Shining Star” will be performed as well as a work titled “No Exit” by MVDC co-director Lily Seitter.
