At Tippy Canoes, smooth paddling through handoff
Saturday, June 15, 2019
It’s been just shy of a decade since Allison Bahr tipped the canoe that gave her restaurant its name.
“When I purchased the building, the canoe hanging over the bar was sitting right side up,” she said. “I didn’t like looking up at the bottom of the canoe, so I tipped it over, hence the name Tippy Canoes. … I felt the name was fitting and customers immediately nicknamed us Tippy’s.”
Under Bahr’s charge the family restaurant developed its fun-loving side, evolving into sports bar and restaurant where everyone seemed to know each other.
