Blogging The Buckeye State

Weblogs, Inc. has gone local with their first metro blog. The metro they chose to explore is the great state of Ohio—really an amalgamation of several metros.
One of the better posts is from Hannah Blumenfeld. It’s about Anabelle’s, a dive bar in Akron, a.k.a. Aktucky.

I discovered that the bar’s cigarettes were housed in a converted vending machine! I’d seen machines with PBR instead of Pepsi and Coors instead of Coke, but never had I seen cigarettes instead of Snickers. Ah, the little things that comprise happiness!

Others active in the metro blogging space include Metro Blogging and Gothamist LLC, neither of which have a blog in an Ohio city.
