I Love Free Publications

This morning, Kathy and I were heading into Wooster to participate in early voting. We thought we would stop at the golden arches to have breakfast. Problem was that there was renovation going on at Mickey D's and half of the parking spaces were not available. So it was off to another place to eat.

We went to The Parlor, a restaurant on w. Liberty St. We have eaten there before, and the meals are very reasonably priced. And while I'm there, I always grab a copy of  The Vendor, a free magazine that gets most of it's revenue from advertising. And the magazine had some good articles. Most of the articles are faith based. I would guess the Amish community would be readers of this publication.

There are also recipes, factoids, and clean one liners throughout the magazine. But best of all, it's free. And like most folks, I like free.

The restaurant has some pretty good food as well. I had biscuits, gravy, home fries, and sausage. Kathy had corned beef hash and toast. With drinks, bill come to $12.45. They don't take credit or debit cards, so I had to,walk a block to the closest bank to get money out of the atm. The owner told me that that could have waited since he had plenty of dirty dishes and toilets to clean. Place definitely has a good atmosphere and worth return visits.

Cliff Note: After I wrote the post, I went to see if The Vendor had a web address. It doesn't. The publisher is located in Brinkhaven, Ohio. Does have a phone number, (330) 276-6508.
