Event: Slice of Columbus 2011/2012

I love pizza.  Okay, I admit it.  Is that so wrong? I’m not talking about big corporate pizza chains like Pizza Hut, Domino’s, Little Caesars, etc.  I love *good* pizza.  There are plenty of good independent pizzerias in Columbus. Those pizzerias, as well as some of the chains, are represented at Slice of Columbus.   […]

Event: Taste the Future 2012

B. and I have gone to Taste the Future every year since 2006. It’s always great to see the best that Columbus restaurants have to offer, and this year was no exception. It was a shame that the threat of inclement weather forced the event to be held in the parking garage; alas, a dimly-lit […]

May is for Foodies!

May is always, always one of my favorite months of the year – if not for the great weather (the cold snaps of early spring are behind us, and the weather is still cool enough to enjoy spending time outdoors), then definitely for the events for food lovers that are held this month. Today I’m […]

Some Upcoming Columbus Events

I usually don’t promote events on the front page (instead, I list them on a separate Ohio Events page), but these are ones I wanted to bring attention to specifically, either because I’m involved directly, or because they are fundraising efforts for charities I believe in. Please be sure to check out one of these […]

Event: Taste the Future 2010

This past Tuesday, P. and I attended Taste the Future, Columbus State Community College’s annual fundraiser to help raise money for scholarships to help send hospitality students through the three-year program. Under almost perfect weather conditions (mid 70’s, clear), we enjoyed an evening of running into a bunch of people we knew, eating more food […]

Would You Like to Taste the Future?

It’s that time of year again! Year after year, we love going to Taste the Future, Columbus State Community College’s fundraising event for the Hospitality program at the college – and most of the restaurants participating in the event either employ CSCC graduates or work closely with the program during their apprenticeship. This year the […]
