Moe’s Original Bar B Que to Expand into Newark, OH

With a successful restaurant already in Granville, Moe’s Original Bar B Que is set to open a new location in late May in downtown Newark, just off the square at 21 W Church Street. Moe’s original style of Alabama BBQ, Southern sides and fresh desserts will be the staple items along with seafood and tempeh options. Opening Monday-Saturday for lunch and dinner at 11am, the fast casual restaurant also will offer large party takeout orders and full service catering.

“We thought with all of the revitalization downtown that Newark was a perfect spot for our second family-friendly restaurant,” said co-owner Kara Gallagher. “We even have a Mini Moe’s area complete with a shack, little picnic table, and flying pigs on the wall to keep the kids entertained while the parents can enjoy a cold beverage from our full premium bar.”

Recognized with many awards, Moe’s Original Bar B Que has been named one of the Top 10 Rib Joints in the U.S. by Relish and Top 10 BBQ Chains in America by USA Today and The Daily Meal. Moe’s Original Bar B Que features award-winning pulled pork, ribs, wings, turkey and chicken smoked over hardwood served along with Catfish and a Shrimp sandwich. Additionally, a daily rotation of traditional sides and house-made desserts are prepared fresh from recipes passed down for generations.  In over a decade Moe’s Original Bar B Que has grown from a junkyard pit to over 50 successful restaurants in 16 states.

Adamandeve.com asks: Does your Partner Know about your Sex Toy?

Adamandeve.com, America’s most trusted source for adult products, is back this month with new results from its annual sex survey. This time, the company asked over 1,000 adults if their partners are aware they have sex toys, and the results may shock you. Of those polled, 66% of the women and 54% of the men said their partners knew about their sex toys. Only 34% of the women versus 46% of the men did not let their partners know they had sex toys.

“Sex toys are wonderful to use alone or with a partner,” says adamandeve.com sexpert Dr. Kat Van Kirk. “Instead of hiding your toy from your significant other, I’d suggest asking how your partner feels about incorporating a toy into your lovemaking. You may be pleasantly surprised! Sometimes shopping online together for a couples toy can help both of you feel less intimidated.”

Red Phone Booth Takes Cigar Enjoyment to the Next Level

Red Phone Booth has become an Atlanta hotspot where cigar enthusiasts can enjoy a wide variety of blends in an exclusive atmosphere. In developing the humidor selection of 100+ labels, this upscale cigar bar prioritized quality and desirability of the cigars over quantity of any one brand, therefore continually bringing in fresh new inventory. Red Phone Booth’s house cigar, the 18th Amendment, features a Brazilian Arapirca Maduro wrapper and a savory blend of Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers to create a dark, medium bodied cigar. Red Phone Booth offers exclusive memberships to its guests, yet customers do not have to join to enjoy the prohibition experience.  

With a strict bi-weekly maintenance schedule, air quality is a top priority at the Red Phone Booth. Extensive time, money and effort was placed to combat the smoke including  multiple large rooftop fresh-air units, micro-environment air scrubbers, and other additional temperature controlled fresh air intakes and exhausts. Red Phone Booth completely replaces the air in the space approximately every four minutes so guests can have maximum smoking enjoyment while relaxing in Italian wing back leather sofas with triple lumbar support.

“At the Red Phone Booth, it is part of our credo to exceed all guest expectations,” said Red Phone Booth Co-Founder/Operating Partner Steve de Haan.  “From the comfort of the seating to the training and knowledge of the staff as well as the quality of the air, it is all of these things and more that allow for us to deliver an unparalleled smoking experience for our guests.”

Located in the iconic Dailey’s building in downtown Atlanta, Red Phone Booth is a prohibition experience featuring not only an extensive cigar program but also a classic turn of the century craft cocktail selection. Patrons will notice the finest attention to detail that provides for exceptional cocktails including 100% fresh squeezed juices such as blood orange, mango, and cranberry, hand chipped double-reverse osmosis ice, garnishes cut to order, a collection of some of the rarest bourbon, whiskey and scotch selections available and over a dozen tinctures, bitters and flavoring agents to help breath new depth. Small plates featured include fresh seafood, carpaccio, Neapolitan pizza and house made desserts. In keeping with the speakeasy theme, guests enter by securing a secret phone number and dialing it into a restored antique London red phone booth entryway.
