Just wanted to give my fellow TT'ers heads up for tomorrow's Wander. Weather looks good and we have had way better than expected turnouts the past few years. $10 for a self-directed walking tour of the following locations:
* The Berdan building (pre-renovation into market rate apartments)
* Rideout residence/office - this has been on the tour, but is definitely worth a look if you've never seen it. It inspired me to move downtown myself.
* the newly built loft apartments above Pat Gianmarco's to-be-opened restaurant on Monroe St.
* Bozarts Gallery
* Oliver House brewery tour
Wander runs from 12:00 to 4:00 pm. Tickets are available day of at the corner of S. St. Clair and Layfayette Streets, outside Downtown Latte.
Plus, Oliver House is having their annual Oktoberfest party on their lawn. (Polka Floyd included).
Two great reasons to enjoy a stroll downtown.
A first-timer query after lurking on the list for a few months.
I'm an ex-Toledoan and come back once a year to visit relatives; the next installment is in mid-October.
On the last couple visits I've made forays downtown to see what's developing.
These trips have put me in the "OMG, It's Doomed" camp, but I'm willing to be persuaded otherwise. And I see from lurking that some of you have a more upbeat view than I do.
So, since my visit this year didn't coincide with this walking tour, I'd be interested in suggestions on what I should check out that would challenge my gloomy view.
weekends are tough, especially in the fall. You're not going to see many people out on the streets etc.

$10 for a self-directed walking tour ... follow the homeless dudes for free.
Justaviewer...do you add anything positive or worthwhile?
^its 68 and sunny...feel better?
There isnt anything in the warehouse district worth paying ten bucks to see.
Are you sure? Why don't you go shoot a youtube video about it for us.
I'd just as rather keep EconCat out of the neighborhood...
If you wanted to wander tomorrow, there will be thousands out for the "race for the cure"
I suspect several businesses normally closed on Sundays will open for all of the foot traffic!
If you're in town the walleye have their home opener on oct 26th. They usually have pre game festivities and the blarney, papalis, 44 corner should be pretty lively pre and post game.
