New owners of Kettering sports bar were regulars before they decided to buy the place

Crazy Cooters Bar & Patio replaces Sports N Spirits Pub & Patio on Woodman Drive

The owners of the Dayton area’s newest sports bar were customers of the previous pub, and decided to buy it and run it themselves.

“We thought it was a neat little place,” said Cindy Caudill, who, along with her husband Greg, purchased the former Sports N Spirits Pub & Patio at 1725 Woodman Drive just north of Patterson Road in north Kettering. “It’s a great location, and we enjoy the people.”

The couple shut down the sports bar for three weeks for extensive renovation, and reopened Friday Oct. 5 under its new name: Crazy Cooters Bar & Patio, Caudill said.

The sports bar seats about 100 inside and another 50 on a patio, and opened with five employees. Crazy Cooters now boasts draft beer, and opened a room upstairs for darts. It offers karaoke on Friday and Saturday nights. Beer and wine are available for carry-out.
