Hello good people of Columbus and passerby folk! It’s been a long time, and I left you without a dope beat to step to – my bad. One of the hardest parts about loving this beautiful city of ours without a body double is I often run out of time to tell you guys about some the amazing events happening to help you get out and about and explore!

I’ve been trying to come up with creative ways I could inform you crazy kids of the haps on a regular basis – then I remembered – I’m not about that consistency life (blame it on my A.D.D. baby!). I was thinking, if ya’ll are cool with it, that I’d put together a quick note to let you know what I know – from events to products – that you might want to get into. I figure there is no time like the present to test out my theory so….. Here we go!

Five young gun chefs (yes five!)  will come together to wow the crowd with their culinary skills at the 2nd annual Eat Up! Columbus on November 14th, an evening celebrating hope, restored lives and cause cuisine. The event will benefit Freedom a la Cart, a non-profit social enterprise that provides social support, work force development and employment to local survivors of human trafficking development.

The November 14th event will include a silent auction which starts at 6:00 p.m. with bidding available online. Tickets go on sale September 14, 2015 at EatUpColumbus.org for $150 each.
