Rock stars, new lunch spots, old scooter stores

Some Wayne Avenue good news-

The South Park Tavern is now open for lunch daily. Same great Pizza Factory pizza- plus some new subs that you can’t get anywhere else. I’ve only tried one so far- but, head on over and check things out.

1301 Wayne Ave.

While we’re talking about the Tavern- from the Historic South Park Website-

South Park neighbor and recording artist Kelley Deal, best known as a member of The Breeders, will be hosting an artist residency at South Park Tavern, with special guests and performances every Tuesday in April! Doors open at 8PM, admission is $5. Appropriate for all ages. As a super-loyal South Parker, Kelley says she wanted to use the residency to really honor the creative spirit of the neighborhood, so in addition to musical performances, she’ll also be hosting Q&As with HSPI’s own Amy Lee, community gardening guru Kasey Henneman, and nationally recognized graphic artist Chris Glass. Also, YOUR chance to write a song with Kelley Deal: the South Park Songwriting Experiment April 19!

And- now that gas is up to $3.79 a gallon (last night on N. Main)- you might want to start talking to Jason at Motoscooto who is back in business. He’s got scooters at all price points. 80 m.p.g. is sounding a lot better now- isn’t it?

It won’t be long before Olive, an urban dive opens at the corner of Wayne and 3rd Street too- so you’ll have another Dayton Original to check out.
