How cool would you look behind the bar of our Beachwood location making drinks and sandwiches?!?

If you think you would be really cool and have what it takes to work in a fun fast paced environment, then you should stop what you're doing and apply to be a barista in Beachwood today!

We are very excited to have the talented Cari Miller sharing her art with us here Nervous Dog. The West Side Leader did a nice little write up detailing her work. Be sure to come check out some of her paintings for yourself at our Stow location and grab one of our delicious Valentine’s Day drinks!

On a list of things to love, clearly Nervous Dog is right behind family. That said, Valentine's drinks are back! Stop in for a sweethearts latte while we have em. (It's the one on the right.)

Back to normal hours! The white stuff out there has been moved enough to the side for us to continue safely distributing the fuel you need to get through your day.

This will be the last week for our seasonal winter drink line up. Come in and get one of each. (They are even more tasty when it looks like winter outside.)

Welp. We tried, we did 🙁... but we’re throwing in the towel for today (and methinks it just skidded into a ditch).

The Summit County sheriff has issued what looks like a level 2 snow warning, and I’m going to err on the side of caution here to get our dear colleagues home safely. It’s slightly less precarious in our Beachwood location, but we’re not taking chances.

Appreciate your understanding, and very much hope that whatever you do today, you stay safe, and also that you build a silly snowman and send pix. Thanks folks… current plan is to open usual hours tomorrow… see you on the other side!

-Michael.

01/20/2019

Ok- everyone made it in, all 4 shops; looking forward to see your smiling faces and cold noses today! Bring a book, a laptop, a friend- and chill with us if you can, it’s cozy up in here!

As promised, drove around to scope out the roads… the trucks are out en force & main streets are plowed; however, major drifts on the less-traveled side roads. If you have a solid 4wd vehicle, it’s a BLAST out there; if not, it’s the exact opposite… please be careful either way.

Signing off to go sledding with the kids, screaming and giggling like an idiot the whole way down (it’s what I do). Yep- followed by a nice, piping hot cocoa at some decent local coffee shop ;) Hope to see you there- have fun, be safe and eat your protein. Cheers!

-Michael.

01/20/2019

Sweet peeps- apologies for the late notice, but we sent our baristas home safely a bit early tonight- hope you’re all safe, warm and cozy as well.

On the bright side, 'tis unbelievably BEAUTIFUL out there; good time to take a minute to stop, catch your breath and look around. Puts everything in a nice perspective!

Meantime, regarding Sunday hours… I’m guessing our tireless city crews will be hard at work all night; we’ll scope things out in the morning and post an update here either way. Stay safe, warm, and caffeinated!

Ever wonder about the best way to brew your joe in the morning?

Nervous Dog's own Michael Litt sheds some light on this topic.

How should you brew your joe? There is a profusion of confusion on the best coffee infusion; however, it all comes down to preference: In the 16th century

Hey everyone, sorry for the late notice but we will not be having Poetry Night tonight at our Wallhaven location. We will resume Poetry Night on January 25th, and continue having it on the last Friday of each month. Sorry again for the inconvenience.

PLEASE: Toys For Tots needs your help more than ever now after $5000 in children's toys were stolen this week. Un. Believable. (see https://www.ohio.com/news/20181212/thieves-steal-5000-worth-of-toys-from-toys-for-tots-in-akron)

But we can help by locking arms and pitching in to help recover the loss (and EXCEED their goals?)... it's really very simple; they're just toys. (And tots!)

You can find a drop-off bin in each of our ND locations for this great cause. The deadline is THIS WEEK... so please- help create some smiles and giggles... drop off new, unwrapped toys and help widen the eyes of a ton of children!

As always... cheers, and thanks for all of the ongoing support in our community!

Our shops will close for Thanksgiving Day, 11/22, so that our friendly staff may enjoy (or, less specifically, ‘spend time with’) their families at home. We’ll turn the lights off Wednesday 11/21 at 8pm and reopen at our usual 6am Friday.

Our fall drink selection will be ending one week from today in order to make room for our WORLD- RENOWNED selection of winter drinks, launching on Black Friday!

Also, hot mulled cider, hot mulled cider, hot mulled cider. That’s subliminal- you didn’t just read that. Happy happy!

What a Laborious Day 😉

Today marks your final day to get our summer drinks. (While supplies last at each location.) Swing through and slam a cold one before the tires melt off your car on this scorcher of a day.

Labor Day will be your LAST DAY this year to enjoy our delicious summer drinks. That's only one week away- so trot on in to any of our locations and buy like 3,000,000 of them. Or so.

Psst-yeah, you...

*WE ARE OPEN ON JULY 4, until 6pm*
( ... should give our fun-loving team enough time to gather their lawn chairs and mosquito repellant)

And we're celebrating MORE than hamburgers... like all being created equal, and the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Important stuff to think about every, single day. AND hamburgers.

So come join us, grab a nitro coffee, and pursue some happiness. Enjoy the holiday, don't blow off any fingers lighting stuff off in the driveway, and- happy birthday, America!

FREE LABOR, ANYONE?

‘Course, we mean YOUR labor, free to us. But let’s not sweat irrelevant details, folks; it’s the thought that counts. Anyways, we’re launching a monthly contest, where you get to do all the work with very little in return- it’s total CUTTING EDGE marketing, people. Here’s the gig:

The rules are simple; take a righteous, or silly, or oh-that’s-so-pretty picture at one of our shops; drinks, friends drinking drinks (with permission to post), or that one napkin we handed you folded into the exact likeness of Michelangelo’s Bacchus sculpture… whatever catches your eye. Use #NervousDog, and get kinda famous. More precisely- show folks why your perspective is so unique, keep helping us spread the joy, and have some artistic fun doing it!

Phone pix are fine. We’ll pare’em down to some of our favorites, feature them online and embarrass you with a public vote, let YOU guys pick a winner… who will get some fabulous free stuff and some bragging rights. (It’s not a yacht or anything, so please focus on the ‘bragging rights’ portion of this public service announcement).

It’s fun. It’s free. It won’t harm any animals. Come out and play!

Ok, ‘tis the dreaded time for our annual bad ‘spring’ Haiku has arrived:

Orange barrels cast shadows
Spring in Ohio
The point is we now serve wonderful, healthy, and DELICIOUS Matcha, and you don’t, and we may have just exceeded 7 syllables

You can too; if you’re one those who haven’t been drinking it ‘for over thousands of years’ (yo Adam- what’s that even MEAN?!)… stop in and give it a shot? You’ll thank yourself. Which might look strange to other people in the room, but who cares what they think? Try it out...

Happy Vernal Equinox!

Happy Vernal Equinox! (Errr, ‘spring’, if you wanna get technical; we’re not exactly geolophysioastronomerologists. Or gastroenterologists, for that matter; just don’t have the stomach for it.)

Here's to positive change, new growth, and MORE SUN. We’re wagging our proverbial tails just thinking about it. It’s kind‘ve adorable, only not really.

Expect more time lapses in the future; this was simply an experiment (but we’ll surely make more. Because coffee).

‘Course, it’ll STILL be ‘simply an experiment’, so chill out over there, Hoss ;).

Do you know what I realized is missing? For St. Patrick's day I mean (I'm constantly missing something, I think... hahaha). I realized we are missing REUBENS. That's right, delicious Boar's Head corned beef, sauerkraut, swiss cheese, and thousand island all on rye bread! WOOF. It's good.

Hey I just have a real quick question. I promise I won't take too much of your time. It'll only take a minute to answer and you can be on your way.... ANYWAY... how do you brew our coffee at home? I mean, when we're not hard at work making it for you. Do you use a drip machine, an Aeropress, a pour over? Or maybe you do cowboy coffee...? Probably not. Comment your favorite method below! Happy Wednesday!

RUFF week? Here's some weekend fun that you can wag your tail for:
Friday: COOP and a Guitar at Nervous Dog Stow
Saturday: Lauren Brabson at Nervous Dog Akron

Both start at 7pm. See you there!

02/20/2018

What are you doing this Saturday? Nothing? Alright, well I made plans...
We have two great shows at Nervous Dog this weekend at TWO different locations. BOTH on Saturday. We have Josh Jones at Nervous Dog Akron and at our Stow location we have the equally friendly Clyde. It's nothing to wag your tail at... that was pretty ruff... I'll stop while I'm ahead. Link to the Clyde event in the comments. See you then!

Ok, so we don't often share feedback with you masses... if it's complimentary, we just do more of it; critical- we fix (even if it does make us a little weepy). All helpful, and we appreciate the time folks take to share either flavor... keeps us rocking' and a'rollin'!

But this one just MADE MY MONDAY, I'm such a proud papa. (Pardon the envelope-pushing on the 'family-friendly' continuum, but we thought it was a killer great description, so verbatim it is.)

Please keep the feedback coming in- and stop in and see us soon? You have a kind face. Happy Monday!

Building a nervous dog: sense of community drives business for local coffee chain owner - Akronist

Very kind, thoughtful article written by Yoly Miller for The Akronist; a terrific source for finding compelling stories about greater Akron.

For those of you in the vicinity... the Akronist is YOUR website; home to local videos, photos, podcasts, articles and blog ... all produced by the community. Our kinda thing.

Thanks again, Yoly, for spending the time getting to know each other! But HOW DO I CHANGE THE LINK PICTURE? Aargh. Oof. Coffee.

A coffee shop. There seems to be one on every corner, unless you are looking for the perfect one. Coffee drinkers know too well that finding the right combination of good coffee, an inviting atmosphere and community can be difficult. Once you find your perfect spot, you stay loyal to it for as long....
