Jumping Fences

By | 2017-01-06T04:02:35+00:00 January 6th, 2017|Dining|

I'm a creature of habit. I love shopping at Costco and I'm on first name basis with the FedEx drivers because of all my Amazon Prime purchases. I also love exploring the city {shocker} and checking out neighborhoods I'm not quite familiar with. My most recent adventure took me to the corner of Summit and [...]

Sipping With The Columbus Barrel Co.

By | 2017-02-07T20:52:27+00:00 December 14th, 2016|Business|

In front of me was one of the prettiest things I'd ever seen. Thick, brown, rough yet sturdy, its presence filled the room with power and the most wondrous oak-y smell. I was enamored, spellbound. Bourbon were officially my thang, inside and out. Ever since the day in which my eyes fell upon the vessels that protect [...]

Moving On Up!

By | 2017-02-07T20:56:17+00:00 November 6th, 2016|Brainstorm|

The year was 2000. My busted up Dodge Neon was on it's last legs of life, crawling down the street at a steady 7MPH. I yanked the steering wheel to the right with all my might, sheer determination and fear driving me, to get the car into the Hamilton Big Ford Country parking lot. 7 [...]

You Should Sit This One Out

By | 2016-10-03T12:30:00+00:00 October 3rd, 2016|Event|

"Robin. Maybe you should just sit this one out." These words have been tattooed on the inside of my brain and have affected physical activity decisions for most of my life. Growing up I was an overweight, adorable, hyperactive child with asthma. For some this may not seem like a big deal, but it [...]

Exploring New Albany: FireFly American Bistro

By | 2017-02-07T20:53:49+00:00 September 19th, 2016|Dining|

I can clearly recall the day I was chatting with my sci-fi friends as they raved on and on about FireFly, a new show that was “all that.” Sad to say but at that time I didn’t listen to them, and much to their chagrin the show was cancelled after one season. Fast forward several years [...]

Summer Fun At Columbus Commons

By | 2017-02-07T20:54:21+00:00 July 7th, 2016|Event|

It’s July in the city which means we are halfway through summer! “But Robin,” you say, “summer officially started a couple of week ago. Surely we aren’t at the halfway mark.” Well, as factual as that statement may sound, if you blink twice and yawn for more than five seconds in the great state of [...]

Summer Grooving: 2016 Musical Series Around The City

By | 2016-06-06T14:00:00+00:00 June 6th, 2016|Event|

Confession: 2016 is shaping up to be the year of lists for me. Can I be blamed when there are a multitude of entertaining events happening throughout the city! I feel like it's my civic duty to ward of any potential FOMO episodes for you lovely folks; especially when the topic of conversation turns to [...]

Making All The Noise: Here To Disrupt

By | 2016-05-19T02:10:00+00:00 May 19th, 2016|Dining, Event|

I believe the year was 2013 when the "pop-up" dining concept took off for me. It was such a wild and crazy concept, and I wanted to be involved in every aspect of it! The thought of an abandoned building being flipped into a beautiful venue for no other reason that to dine and [...]
