Spring Fever

Spring is finally here! After a very long, cold winter we’re excited to see warmer temperatures and green grass. And those of us who are parents are excited to have kids in school every day!

One of my favorite parts about Dayton is our ever-growing food scene. For a self-proclaimed foodie like me, Dayton has a great mix of new favorites and old standards that makes the phrase, “Let’s get dinner out,” four of my favorite words! My family loves the Buffalo Bullburgers at Bullwinkle’s; I fell in love with them in high school! With your help, we picked the long-standing favorites that best represent Dayton. How many have you visited?

In this issue, you’ll also hear from Clark State Community College’s new president and her drive to move the college forward. We had some informative conversations with area leaders about the impact of the new Fuyao plant on local workforce development, and you’ll find an inspiring piece about serial entrepreneur Patrick Hood to share with the budding business builders in your life.

Dayton is starting to thaw and there is so much going on in and around town. Be sure to check out our entertainment listings for a full calendar of happenings, read our arts feature about the Dayton Contemporary Dance Company and find some new places to shop for your home in our Style section.

Be sure to let us know how we are doing through email at nbaker@thedaytonmagazine.com or through social media on Facebook or Twitter. I would love to hear from you.
