From the Burbs To The City: Red Velvet Cafe

By | 2016-12-05T21:45:34+00:00 March 12th, 2015|Business, Dining|

I know that you know that I LOVE the concept of "new".  Yup, new cars, new clothes, new shoes, new books are exhilarating.  Okay, that last one is a bit of a stretch.  I mean, new books are cool, but I'm not turning up for them.  Now if it was a book that was made [...]

It Really Is Neat

Everyone  may not know this, but there is a cool application available across all mobile device platforms that is very user friendly and will help you stay current with upcoming events, restaurant openings/closings, and business movement.  It's a well known company although it has faced some heavy criticism and accusations in the past. Why am I bringing up [...]

Exploring the Discovery District: The Bosco Center

By | 2016-12-05T21:29:54+00:00 January 25th, 2015|Business|

I am often befuddled when I hear comments like "Columbus is boring." or "Man, there is nothing to do."  I immediately think "Well I can't really say since I've never been to Columbus, Georgia." I mean, people couldn't possibly be referring to the city full of cool stuff and hidden parks in Ohio." If these [...]

It's January 2015, and that dear ones, can only mean one thing.  It's time for 614 Magazine's Restaurant Week!  While millions and trillions are making resolutions, vowing to put the cigs down, turn up for the gym, I'm sifting through countless (okay, that might be a slight exaggeration) pre-fixed menus, plotting and scheming on how [...]

Exploring Pickerington: Red Velvet Cafe

By | 2016-12-05T20:50:20+00:00 December 29th, 2014|Business, Dining|

Over the years my coffee palette has developed from 'a little bit of coffee with my sugar and cream' to pour-overs straight up black, no sugar please. I'm talking about that  grown folk, hair-on-chest, not for the faint of heart, this isn't a game cup of brew. I find myself constantly fascinated by the various methods [...]

Exploring Zest Juice Co.

By | 2016-12-05T20:13:17+00:00 December 15th, 2014|Business, Product|

Quick Fact.  I love juice.  I don't mean that frozen concentrated can that needs water added.  I'm also not referring to the miraculous kind that can set on the shelf for 3 months and then the fridge for an extended period of time without ever going bad.  I'm referring to the type of juice that transforms 4 [...]

Fox in Snow Cafe - Italian Village There are a few confessions I need to make. 1.  I may have a crush on Italian Village. 2.  I'm pretty sure I'm falling for Italian Village. 3.  Fox in the Snow is one rad cafe. 4.  Definitely sure that I have a thing for Italian Village. Some of [...]

Exploring Powell: Kraft House No. 5

By | 2014-10-11T00:11:00+00:00 October 11th, 2014|Business, Dining|

It's funny how often I am in a state of flux when it comes to one of  my favorite pastimes - eating.  Why, you ask.  Well, because we all eat - it's a necessary task that must take place each and every day.  What and where we eat are critical choices we all make, and [...]

Exploring Columbus: Crafted Drafts

By | 2014-09-23T01:35:00+00:00 September 23rd, 2014|Business|

I love libations as well as the next jolly fellow, but it's only been in recent years that I've dabbled with craft brews.  As a result I love having opportunities to  learn more about the brewing process and more importantly, the drinking options. I had a hankering for grapefruit beer and was getting pretty desperate as I [...]
