Exploring Pickerington: Red Velvet Cafe

By |2016-12-05T20:50:20-05:00December 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 [...]

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 |2014-10-11T00:11:00-04:00October 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 [...]

Columbus Food Adventures: Grandview Tour

By |2014-09-22T20:40:00-04:00September 22nd, 2014|Business, Dining, Event|

I get downright GIDDY and more than stoked when it comes to learning about local communities and experiencing their culinary art.  It was no surprise that I would fall head over heels when I discovered Columbus Food Adventures, the ONLY food touring company in Columbus, operated by Bethia Woolf.  I remember calling my Mom when [...]

Exploring Downtown Columbus: Barley’s Ale House

By |2014-08-20T23:47:00-04:00August 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. [...]

Exploring Downtown Columbus: Philco Diner + Bar

By |2014-07-18T01:39:00-04:00July 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 [...]

Exploring Columbus: B Spot

By |2014-07-05T03:51:00-04:00July 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 |2014-06-20T03:25:00-04:00June 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 |2014-05-29T00:26:00-04:00May 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. [...]

Exploring The Explorers Club

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 [...]
