Hi! My Name is

Pat McCarty

I love Northwest Ohio. Being born and raised in Toledo and now raising my own kids here, I am passionate about all that Northwest Ohio has to offer. From events to see, places to go, and businesses to buy from, there is so much to see, do, and purchase locally. I was inspired to create a resource that I could share what is happening in the 419 in a creative and entertaining way. Learning about events and businesses in the area and being able to promote them is what the Guy in the 419 is about, and I want to help you get the word out!
