Yup, that was my point...and especially
in a bar...but it was late when I was posting and I only half-answered in my reply..... But made in puff pastry? Even that might fly in OH...any recipes I've seen call for a heavy pie-type dough.
VERY short OH/MI history: OSU fans hate Michigan fans...but individually we all can get along. But when it comes to state loyalty it's "Go Bucks/MI sucks". But it's all in good, clean fun. Honest!
Hmmm, how about "Westside Wednesday's"? Bill the daily special(s) as being what came in fresh from the Westside Market. That way you can cruise your way among the vendors to see what they have that looks extra-good that day. One way to bring in local.
I also think the idea of your patrons voting from a list of potential specials would make the menu selections more personal...and probably bring more people in? It's a chance that wouldn't cost anything.
