Barry's Pub and Grill looks pretty casual to me.

Mike will have to chime in, but I do not think the pub portion of golf depot is where we are eating.

I would imagine a nice Polo and a clean pair of pants good enough.

We are probably going to be inside, as it will be cool.  Some may wear a blazer over a polo or shirt.  I agree with Paul Michael, polos and slacks will be fine.  I think jeans will be the exception.

Dress attire is so funny.  And so generational.  And just plain strange.
The "occasion" is there to serve you, not the other way around.  I won't be there unfortunately, but if I were there I would be wearing black Levi's 501s with black Reebok walking shoes and some sort of nice long sleeve Façonnable shirt.  Because that's how I like to dress.  And the shoes are more about "they don't hurt my feet" than "they look great".  When I go to Pebble Beach (which is once every 5 years or so) I wear about the same thing, lay on the grass and look at the under-side of the cars, and take pictures of the men wearing white pants.   Well, I don't actually photograph them but I realize how horrified they might be at what I'm wearing, just as I am horrified at what they are wearing.

...I guess I _did_ dress properly for the Obama presidential inaugural ball -  the black tux and uncomfortable shoes and all that.  But that was for them, not for me....

I brought a dinner suit as they said there was going to be a dinner.  You mean I did not have to carry it 15,000 miles in a suit carrier  :o

Thankfully I have brought some Jeans and a leary Hawaiian shirt that should fit in just nicely then. :D :D :D

Since the establishment is open only to our group this evening, I imagine you can wear whatever you like and you will not offend anyone. PUB is a casual and informal event. Make yourself comfortable. September evenings in Ohio can be a bit cool.
