Seeing there is no place for Ohio on the boards, I figured I'd make one. I live in a small town called Sheffield Lake which is close to Cleveland. If any of you feel like going out for drinks to remember the Great Ryan Davis, please go ahead and post here.

Lets also not make this a one time thing either. I'm always looking for people to hang out with!

Updated 7-11-2013 : I'm thinking that July 20th at Melt for those who would like to go there. Then July 27th at B Side Liquor Lounge.

Bleh, Opposite side of the state! :\

CLEVELAND! (Lakewood specifically here)

This was a problem I had a feeling would occur. Ohio is no small state.

CLEVELAND! (Lakewood specifically here)

I work right on the Lakewood/Cleveland border. It's on 117th.

I live in Cuyahoga Falls (around Akron) but work in Downtown Cleveland! There is an awesome little bar there called Moriarty's Pub.

I would be more than happy to meet up somewhere up there in his honor.

You're too far north for me unfortunately. I live in Beavercreek, a suburb of Dayton. Like the idea though.

Bit too far away for me (Cincinnati), but have a good time duders!

That sounds like an awesome pub. Never been to any of the bars in Cleveland before.

I live in the ohio valley right along the WV boarder and would have to plan well ahead but I would greatly enjoy meeting some community members in person

#10 Posted by elliottfr (9 posts) -

Ohio City / Cleveland

#11 Edited by Lord_Xp (602 posts) -

So to the people who would like to go in the Cleveland area...is there a bar you would like to suggest? Moriarty's Pub is one so far. I know none so I won't suggest anything. Once we get a place, we can set a day to go.

I'm in the Ohio Valley as well, and can see Wheeling, WV through my window, so Cincinnati and Cleveland is a bit too far for me... though considering the circumstances I'd love to do this given some serious planning. If you guys get together, drink one for him from me.

If anyone closer to the Ohio Valley wants to get together, I'm more than down. I really like the idea of duders getting together and becoming real friends in Ryan's memory.

#13 Posted by pandorasbox (303 posts) -

I live in Amelia, OH and cleveland is a bit too far for a duder who doesn't have a car. Sorry, mate.

#14 Posted by Lord_Xp (602 posts) -

To the other people who live to far to the Cleveland meetup. Feel free to use this thread to find a common place to meetup at.

#15 Posted by Aaron_G (1616 posts) -

Dayton, Ohio here. But you Cleveland duders enjoy!

#16 Posted by dkessler175 (88 posts) -

I'll second Lakewood, Ohio. It's hard to not end up at a good bar around here. Buckeye Beer Engine is a solid place.

#17 Posted by Diesel_Dan (19 posts) -

Count me in to meet anywhere in the Cleveland/westside area, particularaly to pour one out for the great Ryan Davis. Happy Dog could be fun.

#18 Edited by JOURN3Y (230 posts) -

i'm in the Cleveland area, so sign me up if the stars align.

#19 Posted by MrT (162 posts) -

I'm from Parma, but i'm straight edge so no drinking for me unless it's root beer or ginger ale.

Alcohol is not a requirement duder.

#21 Posted by TheUnsavedHero (1255 posts) -

I'm in Barberton. A small town outside of Akron. I would love to come out if I didn't have to work tomorrow. :-/

#22 Posted by Diesel_Dan (19 posts) -

So are we thinking this weekend sometime? I believe I'm free Friday and Saturday night, so I'm down for whatever works best for everyone else.

#23 Posted by zEyePawdz (47 posts) -

Crap, lotta Cleveland duders. Toledo, here.

#24 Posted by JoshyLee (178 posts) -

This is why I hate being in Athens. I'd love to meet up with some duders, but I'm in the middle of nowhere.

OU 2010 alum, here. Trust me, if I was around I'd demand meetups at Jackie O's.

God, I miss that place.

I live in Cincinnati

#27 Posted by aidros (241 posts) -

I see you Ohio duders! I live in Cincinnati myself, so Cleveland might be a bit of a drive, but I wouldn't mind driving it to meet some of you folk. Would Columbus be an option? Kind of meeting in the middle?

#28 Edited by lilarchie232 (728 posts) -

I'm in Akron, I'd be down for anywhere though. I'd love to get together and hang out with some fellow duders. Let's make this happen!

#29 Posted by copax (21 posts) -

I won't be able to join, but I'm a cleveland area duder.

#30 Posted by Package_Attack (28 posts) -

Glad to see a few people also living in Cuyahoga Falls or the surrounding areas.

#31 Posted by EpicSteve (6494 posts) -

I actually live in Fairfield if anyone lives around here. I'm going out this weekend, feel free to join.

#32 Posted by Lord_Xp (602 posts) -

If some of you none Cleveland people want to make other hangouts in other places thats fine. I only said Cleveland because I live near it.

Feel free to set up a cinnci spot or Akron or Toledo if you feel like it. I dont want you guys driving hours unless you really want to of course.

#33 Posted by joebillmatt (26 posts) -

I'm in Hudson, between Cleveland and Akron. We could do something in Lakewood or Ohio City as those places have good bars/centrally located. I'll keep a watch on this thread.

#34 Edited by AngryWombat (3 posts) -

For anyone in the Columbus area, there's a new bar called the 16-bit Bar + Arcade opening up soon. Would be an ideal place for a meetup. From what I've read on their facebook page they plan on having all their cabinets on free-play. https://www.facebook.com/16BitBar

#35 Edited by MikeHawk (382 posts) -

I live in Wooster (about an hour south of Cleveland) and I go to school another hour south in Mount Vernon. I would totally be up for something in either Cleveland or Columbus. I don't turn 21 until the 21st, though (Giant Bomb's 5th birthday!) Also, I'm on vacation until Sunday, so I wouldn't be able to go to anything until next week.

#36 Edited by waxenapple (10 posts) -

I'm in Brecksville which is just south of Cleveland. Definitely behind this idea. I know there's a bunch of different bars to choose from in Tremont if we're doing it in the Cleveland area.

Oh and a Saturday works best for me. I work laaaate on Fridays.

#37 Posted by Asmo917 (415 posts) -

OU Class of '03. I've left the state for DC, but goddam if I don't miss the CI, Courtside Pizza, Goodfella's...

#38 Posted by brownsfantb (400 posts) -

I'm in Broadview Heights (15 or so mins south of Cleveland) and would be down to meet up anytime. Weekends would work best for me. Would love to be able to share some Ryan Davis memories with others since most of my friends don't watch GB stuff.

That's fantastic to hear, both as a meetup spot and knowing that I'm going back to C-bus in August (starting my victory lap @ OSU). I'd be very interested in a place like this though. What does everybody else think?

#40 Posted by Korosuzo (175 posts) -

Akron, OH here. I could attend a Cleveland meetup but probably not this weekend as I'm heading to Pittsburgh.

#41 Posted by XplusY (68 posts) -

I live in C-Bus (at least for the next 5 weeks). I am definitely interested, just let me know date and time.

#42 Posted by FauxBen (22 posts) -

Oh shit, I'm in Cleveland Heights and I'd totally be down for a GB meetup as well if one goes down in the area. My own recommendations for location would be any of the Melt bars/restaurants (Lakewood, Cleveland Heights, Independence, Mentor), because grilled cheese and beer is a winning combination. There's also a Barcade that just opened up here in Coventry not too long ago (http://www.bsideliquorlounge.com/) if we wanted to go for the whole video games thing a bit more. I'll be around pretty much any weekend as well.

#43 Edited by Vipersona (55 posts) -

Columbus native. I live and work in Zanesville. Ohio Univeristy 2001 graduate. Family in Ohio Valley.

Meetup!

B Side looks AWESOME. I know there's a Melt right around the street from that, so a meet up then moving towards B Side would be awesome.

I think B Side should be the set place to go

would everyone be ok with this date: July 20th or July 27th? Both are Saturdays.

#46 Edited by MikeHawk (382 posts) -

I'll second the idea of going to The Melt. My college friends and I were wanting to go last semester, but we never got around to it. Also, I'd prefer we go the 27th if we're going to B Side so I'll be 21. Would they even let me in if I was still 20?

#47 Posted by matthias2437 (985 posts) -

@lord_xp: I'm cool with the place and either of those dates. Just let me know!

#48 Edited by SquirrelCheese (13 posts) -
#49 Posted by ScimitarPrime (2 posts) -

I'm stationed in Dayton. I'd be down to set up a Dayton or Cinncinati meet up for the people in the south part of the state if people are interested.

#50 Posted by joebillmatt (26 posts) -

@lord_xp:

27th would be great. Melt and B Side guys or just B Side? We could set times for both so you can choose your own.
