Come Party on the Patio

With gas prices skyrocketing and the entire country feeling some effects of the current economic recession, this year”‘s sweltering summer months did not have the same feel as they have in years past.

Rather than clearing out the family savings account, many households began to embrace the newly popularized idea of the “Staycation,” choosing to take smaller inexpensive day trips to local attractions, instead of the more exotic destinations that were once staples of the American family vacation.

Keeping this idea in mind, it is comforting to know that even in Wooster, Ohio, there are still some places where a few dollars can go a long way.

This summer the Wooster Inn has continued the community tradition of Party on the Patio.

Every Friday from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m., in rain or shine or the possible summer hailstorm (it is Ohio, after all), the Inn opens its sprawling backyard for food, music and socializing for all ages.

The tented patio offers a relaxing atmosphere in any weather.

With a $5 cover charge, you get your choice of beverage, freshly prepared hors d”‘oeuvres and live musical entertainment.

The Inn offers full bar service with drink specials, including all items off of the Inn”‘s recently updated Brew List, the perfect combination for any college student with a budget.

This lovely tradition continues through Oct. 17.

Come enjoy The Wooster Inn”‘s fabulous food and drink for minimal charge (and the enjoyment that comes with being served).

Also, keep an eye out for the upcoming Beer Dinner.

Wooster alumnus and Brewmaster Andy Tveekrem “’85 will visit the Wooster Inn and host the Beer Dinner, which will feature a wide selection of IPAs, ales, stouts and lagers from Tveekrem”‘s Delaware- based Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, as well as a stellar menu carefully selected and prepared by Chef de Cuisine, Mickey Venditti.

The dinner will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 17 and is for advanced sale and reservation only, at $35 per person plus gratuity and sales tax.
