Historic Dublin Slider Challenge

On the first Thursday of the month, Historic Dublin, Ohio features Jig Thursday which showcases live music on the streets of this charming town. Restaurants have special menu items, visitors can explore local shops, and enjoy live Irish-themed music throughout the historic district. A special edition of last night’s Jig Thursday was the Second Annual Historic Dublin Slider Challenge. The Slider Challenge includes six of Historic Dublin’s finest restaurants (Dublin Village Tavern, J. Liu, La Chatelaine, Mezzo, Oscar’s, and Tucci’s) which provided a unique slider for participants to sample. All six restaurants are within walking distance, making a perfect evening to stroll through Historic Dublin sampling local cuisine and to visit the local shops. After sampling all six sliders, participants voted for their favorite slider. This family-friendly event has sold out for the past two years, and proceeds benefit the Dublin Rotary Club. The Slider Challenge and Jig Thursday was the perfect way to spend a beautiful July evening in Historic Dublin!
