San Francisco: Day 1

Sorry for the delay in getting this up, folks – I had lots and lots of pics from the trip to go through, and then had to edit, organize and upload them all. Finally we get to the fun part, recollecting the trip. I’ll be telling the story in four parts – Day 1, Day […]

Lots of Exciting Things in Store for November!

First off, an apology for not posting lately. It’s not for lack of drafts. When Bloglines announced they were discontinuing service,  what should have been easy (importing my subscriptions), turned into a nightmare. Since I subscribe to over 7,000 feeds, the file was too big to be imported, and I’ve had to resubscribe to them […]

Poutine at the Hills Market!

Back for one night only, the Hills Market is serving up poutine tonight from 6-8:30pm at their store. With fresh cut fries, their own gravy, and fresh cheese curds from Blue Jacket Dairy, this is a night not to be missed. For $8, enjoy a plate of poutine either to go or on their Veranda. […]

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.

This Sunday afternoon at 4:30, it will be a battle of blogger (me) vs. blogger (Lisa the Waitress of Restaurant Widow) vs. radio host (Ann Fisher of WOSU’s All Sides) at the Heavy Metal Chef Challenge, a cooking competition that’s an homage to Iron Chef with Q96FM’s Joe Show playing the part of Alton Brown. […]

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 […]

Event: Goodale Park Music Series 8/8/2010

I think of all the weeks that the Goodale Park Music Series has gone on this summer, my favorite theme had to be on August 8th, when Bethia of Hungry Woolf hosted a “Grown in Ohio” potluck that celebrated local foods. The fact that it went down during the best part of the growing season […]
