What do you think of when you hear "Toledo, Ohio"?

Hello lovely Cleveland ladies :)

I am getting married in Toledo, OH and we will be having many guests from OOT.  We are having welcome bags at the hotels for them, but I am looking for outsiders views of what I should include in them.  I am assuming most of you have been to Toledo at some point.  Is there anything that is "Toledo" to you?  Thanks all!!

    My DH is actually from that area. The first thing that comes to mind is the Mudhens baseball team! (And, the Toledo Walleye hockey team, but DH's buddy works for them, so I'm aware of them -- maybe others aren't?)

    Carruth artwork would be a nice addition. I know there are inexpensive little pieces you can get -- magnets that come in a 3 pack that are adorable and you could put one in each bag. The Carruth shop would have them, but I think Andersons carries them, too?

    Also, Toledo is known as the 'glass city', right? So, something made of glass would be appropriate. And, Tony Paco's... I know I've seen TP's jars of peppers and such in grocery stores. Um... the Toledo zoo is very nice. And, there's a butterfly house in I think Swanton(?), but I've not been.

    Does that help?

    Ditto JK...I immediately think of Tony Paco's and University of Toledo (but maybe that's because my dad is an alum).

    I like the idea of something made from glass, I think that would be cool...especially if you tied a ribbon with a tag explaining that Toledo is the glass city, etc.

    I believe Tony Packo's has filed bankruptcy and may be closed. Family dispute. I've read some about it in the Blade (I read a ton of newspapers online each day, I'm a news junkie) but I didn't really keep up with exactly what is going on there - if they are still open, it would be good to include something from there or coupons to use to eat there.

    That is also where Jeeps are made, you could put Jeep trinkets in - if you could find say bottle openers or something with the Jeep logo.  Jamie Farr from MASH is from Toledo, he hosts an LPGA gold tournament there every year that's a pretty big deal.

    Libby Glass is there and has an outlet store.
