Where to Eat? — Jimmy’s 5 Step Guide

We all do this whether we are single, dating someone, or married with kids. It doesn’t matter how many people are a part of the equation, it seems to always be one of the hardest decisions to make—where to eat. We’ve all heard the banter, “I want Mexican, no, I want Chinese…well, you picked last week, it’s my turn” — you know how it goes. Even for Spade and I, we take what seems like an endless amount of time deciding where to spend our precious moments (eating) together.

Have you ever driven past a business or seen a sign and just wondered…what in the world is that place? Orange Avocado was that place for me. I literally drove past it for weeks deliberating in my mind what it could possibly be. (A Mexican place perhaps? Or maybe they sell hybrid produce? Could it be one of those new age sip and paint places? They always have weird names. I bet I could make it my rap name though.) It wasn’t until Spade saw them on social media and brought me down there one day for a special treat that I was able to put all that analytical nonsense behind me. Orange Avocado is a cold pressed juicery on 224 in Boardman in the Creekside Plaza. If you haven’t been let on to this new trend we are here to tell you, take the dive in to fresh juices.
