Dining & Drinking
Jennifer lives a mile and a half from the Old Dublin Historic District, which is located on the Scioto River with a lot of great bars and restaurants in the district. The Dublin Village Tavern has a nice patio with really good food. There are also high-end restaurants with great happy hours, including Tucci's, which has a "really great patio" and is a good spot for lunch and happy hour. Brazenhead is more casual with decent drink specials, a nice patio and good food. All of these places are within walking distance.
The craft beer craze is catching on in Dublin with several spots for the craft beer connoisseur already open and several more coming soon. The Pint Room, located just up road from historic district, has over 100 beers on draft and good sandwiches. The 101 Beer Kitchen is doing some of the best food in the area with a huge selection of craft beers in a nice atmosphere.
For gift ideas and to satisfy a sweet tooth, check out Sisters Sweet Shoppe in downtown Dublin, which sells "grandma's" fruitcakes, dessert cakes and gourmet chocolates.
Retail Therapy
Pink Door is a relatively new consignment store that has great deals on work clothes for the young professional.
The Great Outdoors
The Glacier Ridge Metropark is a beautiful park with great biking and walking trails. Dublin is also famous for their Memorial Golf Tournament, a professional golf tournament that offers tickets to the public at reasonable tickets. "It's a fun experience," Jennifer says. "It's great to people watch and see all the golfers." Afterwards everyone heads to the Bogey Inn, the post-tourney tradition.
Dublin's Irish Festival has grown more and more every year. It now it goes for a full weekend, drawing in over 100,000 every May, with live music from well-known Irish bands and, of course, plenty of food and beer.
"For a suburb, Dublin is actually pretty progressive," Jennifer says. They are currently working on the Bridge Street Corridor Plan, trying to take a historic district and make it much more walkable by adding high-density housing units and planning many more restaurants and shops, and will also include building a pedestrian bridge over the river. "The plan is to make it much more dense and much more walkable. That's really key to attracting young people who want (walkability)."
