Exploring Downtown Columbus: Barley’s Ale House

By | 2014-08-20T23:47:00+00:00 August 20th, 2014|Business, Dining|

I'm a HUGE fan of Barley's.  I am confident that they could go head to head in a competition for the best wings in Columbus.  Don't believe me?  Head downtown on any given Wednesday for wing night to see what the fuss is all about.  You'll thank me later. Recently, I moseyed to the N. [...]

By | 2014-08-07T03:06:00+00:00 August 7th, 2014|Business|

You made me love you The Market Italian Village!  I find myself daydreaming of  you often.  I long for another latte, crave my next charcuterie!  What have you done to me?!!  In recognition of a stellar experience, please allow me to honor the following individuals. Davey - Your big smile and welcoming gestures as I walked [...]

Exploring Downtown Columbus: Philco Diner + Bar

By | 2014-07-18T01:39:00+00:00 July 18th, 2014|Business, Dining|

As I approached the door to Philco earlier one Sunday afternoon and spotted the extremely bright green menu, I knew this was meeting of destiny. As I slowly opened the door and walked inside, my eyes were introduced to green seating, a bar with old school swivel seats, over-sized booths, metal tops, and bar stool [...]

My Obsession Part I: Columbus’ 614 Restaurant Week

By | 2014-07-18T00:52:00+00:00 July 18th, 2014|Business, Event|

I love many things, but there are only a few things I'm completely and utterly obsessed with.  There are few events that I will gladly allow to disrupt my life, require a legal name change, climb over a mountain, swim the widest river to conquer.  614's  Restaurant Week is a MAJOR event in my life.  [...]

Exploring Columbus: B Spot

By | 2014-07-05T03:51:00+00:00 July 5th, 2014|Business, Dining|

The first time I got really excited about a Michael Symon project was when I heard he was going to collaborate with the good ole boys of Middle West Spirits to create vinegar of some sort.  The second time was when word began to spread that Michael was bringing B Spot, his burger joint, to Columbus. After reviewing my new [...]

Exploring the East Side: Gratzi Pizzeria Sports Bar

By | 2014-06-20T03:25:00+00:00 June 20th, 2014|Business, Dining|

One thing I love about publicly expressing my love of supporting local is that people willingly offer suggestions of new places to try and explore in the city. A few weeks ago a friend of mine mentioned that a new restaurant was opening in Pickerington that might be local. "Might be?" I scoffed with skepticism, [...]

Tiki In The City

By | 2014-05-29T00:26:00+00:00 May 29th, 2014|Business, Dining|

It all started when I convinced myself that biking downtown on a Sunday was a great idea.  It ended with my wanting a trike that didn't exist and making a last minute decision to check another spot off my 2014 list.  Without further ado, allow me to introduce:  Robin's First CFL Encounter:  The Grass Skirt. [...]

Oh My Oyo!

There are many spirit choices out there. Wait, I'm talking about liquid spirits.  The kind made in a stainless steel tub in Uncle Jeff's barn after dark when the cops aren't around.  For decades, there have and continue to be debates on the best way to make your spirit.  Distilled thrice, flipped over twice with [...]

Exploring The Explorers Club

By | 2014-05-08T00:58:00+00:00 May 8th, 2014|Business, Dining|

May 7, 2014 It brings me great pleasure to formally announce that a milestone occurred tonight.  Well, maybe not a milestone, and the formal announcement might be over the top, but I'm hyped!  I checked another local spot off my 2014 list! Wait, have I explained my 2014 list yet?!  You know what?  Please remind me [...]

Old Towne East: Hot Chicken Takeover

By | 2014-04-29T01:51:00+00:00 April 29th, 2014|Business, Dining|

Somewhere deep inside, I think we all wanted Pinky to succeed.  We figured eventually one of his hairbrained schemes might actually work.  While he didn't reach his life achieving goal, I do believe we have a new contender that has a much better shot.  I ask myself now, why didn't anyone tell him to start [...]
