First Fridays at St. John Chrysostom

If you happen to have a little extra time to spare tomorrow afternoon, run – don’t walk to St. John Chrysostom Church on Cleveland Avenue near E. Dublin-Granville Rd. at around 3:30pm. Every First Friday of the month (except for when those Fridays fall on holiday weekends – this month being an exception because they’re […]

Event: Taste the Future 2009

Last night was Columbus State’s annual fundraiser, Taste the Future. We were so thrilled to be able to attend for the fourth year in a row, and were so happy that the weather cooperated long enough for the event to be held outdoors. As usual, the food was fabulous. That goes without saying. It always […]

Event: Taste of the Independents 2009

May is definitely a busy month for foodies, with several events all taking place within days of each other. The first of these we attended was last Thursday’s Taste of the Independents, an annual fundraiser that benefits Dine Originals Columbus. We were lucky enough to attend last year, so we’ve been looking forward to it […]

May 2008 Roundup

I post these roundups mostly […]

Eating this past week has been all about cleaning out the perishables before the end of the year. But there should be some […]

Menu for Hope 4

    I’m pleased to be able to participate in this year’s Menu for Hope fundraiser.So what is Menu for Hope? This description from the organization’s Facebook site explains it so much better than I could: “Just for $10, you can feed a hungry child (for over a month), and, if you’re in luck, Ferran […]

Event: Taste the Future 2006

Last night was the 18th Annual Taste the Future 2006 event, and Paul and I were lucky enough to bbe able to attend. We definitely weren’t disappointed. Amazing food. Amazing atmosphere. And the chance for us to try tons of things we’ve never had the opportunity to try before. For example, the seared (but mostly […]
