Let’s take advantage of the rare national media attention on Toledo that doesn’t involve bar shootings or an episode of M.A.S.H. Crystal Bowersox mentioned the Village Idiot on this week’s American Idol and she played at the Maumee bar weekly until she got her golden ticket to Hollywood.
I went to the Village Idiot on my first night ever in Toledo, the night before my interview at ABLE, and I’ve been going back regularly ever since. The Idiot has the best jukebox in the area and tasty beers on tap, but the pizza is why I bring most out-of-town visitors here. They take their toppings seriously – if you order garlic, each small square slice be topped with 5 or 6 whole cloves. A perfect pizza to share while rocking out.
