I've never believed that an unpleasant moment equates to a bad day.  I'm characteristically two seconds from hype mode at any given time and cherish little things that produce big smiles. New experiences excite me, kind faces and helping others brings peace to my soul. While I'm certainly no stranger to the struggle, there are times I find [...]

Jumping Fences

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 [...]

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 [...]

Making All The Noise: Here To Disrupt

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 [...]

Night At The Refectory

It's the most wonderful foodie week of the year Columbus! Yes, yes, 614 Magazine's Restaurant Week always has a plethora of tasty options and a long list of great restaurants to try! I decided to kick it old school and visit one of my favorite spots in the city, The Refectory. The Refectory, located on [...]

Exploring Pickerington: Herb’n Cafe

By | 2015-08-20T03:00:00+00:00 August 20th, 2015|Dining|

Once upon a cold fall day, I was feeling restless in the city. My spidey sense was tingling and I knew that something amazing was going to take place by the end of the day. A new food truck had hit the streets and I was eager to try it out, but because of my [...]

The Ultimate Pop-Up Dining Experience

By | 2015-07-12T13:30:00+00:00 July 12th, 2015|Dining|

I'm sure it will come as no shock to anyone that I'm in love with the culinary scene in Columbus. Our options range from gourmet morsels served from a food truck to artistic spots tucked into the very best corners of the city. One of my favorite savory adventures includes the all-mighty multi-course meal. [...]

From the Burbs To The City: Red Velvet Cafe

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 [...]

Exploring Marysville: Hinkley’s

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

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 [...]
