About Alex Gray

Hi guys, my name's Alex Gray and I'm one of the 2016 summer interns for Emerge Inc. and LC Explorer. I'm a senior at Kent State University studying public relations with plans to graduate in May of 2017.

Two Bucks Avon

Last week for lunch, Taylor and I got to venture off to Avon and eat at Two Bucks. As soon as we arrived, we sat at the bar and checked out the goodies on the menu. There were so many options to choose from so naturally it took us about 15 minutes to order.

Now that I’m back in America, I find myself always craving Italian food because their food is amazing and […]

My New Favorite Appetizer – Fried Brussel Sprouts!

Growing up in Lorain County, there are always places that you pass by all the time but have just never gotten around to visiting.  One of those places for me was Cafe Melissa, a small restaurant specializing in creative, local and organic ingredients located in Avon Lake.

High Fashion, Low Cost – Shop Consignment Shops in Lorain County
