May 2008 Roundup

Finally, I’m starting to catch up with these roundups, and getting them out much more quicker – however, after the last one, I had a couple of people email me asking if I was a real person because they considered my post trackback spam (whatever that is, I’m not sure). I post these roundups mostly for myself (so I can bookmark the recipes I want to try), but also so I can share them with you too. So the question is, do you all like to read these, would you rather me do them weekly vs. monthly, or are they just a pain in your ass and would you like me to stop doing them all together? Comment and let me know. :)

If you live in Columbus, then you’re probably familiar with the tragedy that happened at Haiku a few weeks ago. Someone dining there walked out without paying their check, and three people (one server, one co-owner, and one bystander) followed this man to the parking lot, where he proceeded to run down the lot of them with his truck. The co-owner, Julie Liu, has serious injuries, and the server, Rachel Widomski, sustained severe spinal cord injuries that have paralyzed her for life. It’s amazing to see how the Short North dining community has come together, and this weekend’s Gallery Hop has been designated Hope Weekend, with several activities to help raise money for Rachel’s overwhelming medical bills. Even if you’re not visiting the Short North this weekend, please visit Haiku Help and consider helping in any way you can.

  1. If you try the cupcakes, you’ll have to let me know how you like them!
    And, I hadn’t heard that Columbus story… well, I not from Columbus so that is probably why. What a tragedy!

  2. What a tragedy. I don’t know what this world is coming to!
    Thanks for the link. I’m so flattered and think its a great idea for both your records and to expose some new stuff to others that may miss it in their blog surfing.I’m so happy your bouncing back!

  3. Horrible to hear what happened to the Haiku staff.
    I spent some of my childhood in Columbus (I went to Tremont Elementary) . My Grandma recently moved to the Apartments on Olentangy River Road (the big house got too much for her). We live in a wonderfully small world.

  4. It’s hard to understand how someone could run down those people rather than pay for the food they ate.
    I love your roundups. I’m flattered when I make the cut and I’m happy to see so many interesting and delicious looking foods to try. There’s a bunch that I know I want to make later that I wouldn’t have found if you hadn’t done the roundup. Thanks!

  5. Sorry to read of another senseless tragedy- hope it’s never repeated and that the innocents involved heal better and more quickly than anticipated. Glad your community is rallying round!

    I am always so pleased to be included in your roundups- please continue to post them- they’re a great resource! :)

  6. I am very flattered that you’ve included me in your round-up and look forward to checking out the others. Thanks!

  7. sorry to hear about the restaurant tragedy.

    I’m surprised and happy to be included in your recipe round-up. Thanks for the link! Let me know what you think of the Chiles! Also, blogging is personal, do what you love…you have an ambitious list of recipes to try! Good luck.

  8. Terrible to hear about the trajedy at Haiku…although I no longer live in Ohio, I end up dining in the Short North a couple of times a year when visiting my parents. Thanks for the link to donate.

    Thanks also for including me in your roundup! What a great collection of links…definitely pointed out a few great entries that I managed to miss!
