Hey Warren! City of the Week has chosen YOU! I went out to Warren to check some stuff out. Read on for a recap of my adventures or scroll down to enjoy the pictures I took in Warren. Find out our Warren factoids HERE.
Where in Warren Did You Go?
First I stopped in and saw our friends at Planet Fitness. The Planet Fitness staff is superat Tech Plaza plus my co-workers, Jenny and Rob, were there, so extra fun for me. 🙂 Rob loves stealing my phone and taking his own pics. Look for that in the gallery. Paul was a WCSX listener working out at Planet Fitness. He had just finished his workout and stopped by to say hello.
I’ve been wanting to check out Red Olive and they are right in the same plaza! Red Olive has been in Tech Plaza since it opened and they are family owned and run. Their menu is Greek-inspired and a lot of their food, sauces, gets are prepared in-house. I spoke with Melony and Claire. The ladies were both really nice and had great things to say about Red Olive.
Next, I drove over to Dragonmead Brewery! This is another place that I’ve really been wanting to see. Lesson learned: read more completely. They open at 3pm, but they are closed on Mondays. As a result, I saw the front of the building but that was it. Side note: Dragonmead Brewery is also a Pokemon Go Stop. LOL
I decided to check out Weigand Park. On the way there, I stopped by XL Autobody & Paint. I love these people. They’ve been a part of Warren for more than 30 years. Ray told me about the painting process and they let me observe! Check out the video:

After XL, I stopped at Shenanigans because I saw they offer Karaoke on their sign and I felt it had to be a fun place. The place has only been open for a few weeks… It’s the old Midway. They are known for their corn beef sandwiches and burgers. The bartenders, Chelsea and Rochelle, were super friendly. Karaoke is on Wednesdays 7-11pm.
I finally made it to Weingard Park. They have a nice playscape for the kids and a cool mural. I grabbed some pics (and spun some poke stops) and headed home. Thanks for the hospitality, Warren!
