Weekend Highlights

4 years ago

{alicia} Seeing that it's a Wednesday, and I'm already dreaming about Friday what better way to get through my day then recap the excellence that was last weekend? We're going to skip along through Friday as I have a tendency to be too tired at the end of the week (see: old) to get into anything super exciting. I did see Bad Words, though, and while I am[...]

Eating and Drinking in German Village

4 years ago

{alexis} One of the biggest perks in living in German Village is the local eateries. It is obscenely easy for me to pop into world-class bakeries and restaurants. Our last-minute food decisions often yield the type of food that people plan weeks in ahead for. It's just too easy here! Last week was a perfect example. After discussing options for a quick meeting, we settled[...]

Scioto Audobon Metropark

4 years ago

{alexis} You probably think that all Alicia and I do is eat. While you're not entirely wrong, we do leave our house for more than just a ridiculous brunch or a spicy cocktail. Sometimes, we even go enjoy the great outdoors! A few weeks ago, on the first nice day we had, I dragged the husband and Indiana Bones out to the Scioto Audobon Metropark.[...]

Brunch at Wolf’s Ridge Brewery

4 years ago

{alicia} Yes, I am bombarding you with another brunch post, but I had to share the marvel that is Wolf's Ridge Brewing. I know, right? Brunch at a microbrewery? What is this madness. As it were, WRB (to me at least) is just as passionate about food as they are about drink. But as this is a brewery, let's talk about libations first. Let me start[...]

Saturday Brunch at 101 Beer Kitchen

4 years ago

{alexis} After shopping our little hearts out at the Made Local Market on Saturday morning, we dragged ourselves through the rain and into Dublin's 101 Beer Kitchen for a brunch extravaganza. I really like this place. The cocktail and food menus are local, seasonal, and interesting, and you get the sense that they are really trying new things. And, refreshingly, the place is spacious! These little[...]

Made LOCAL Market

4 years ago

{alicia} This past weekend, we took our own advice and spent the afternoon at the Made LOCAL Market. After we dubbed our friend Megan an honorary blogger, the three of us dodged the raindrops (which later turned into snow, naturally) to find shelter at the Bridgewater Banquet Hall. While we hid from the rain, we took a peek at the Boutique Truck that was set up[...]

Weekend Roundup {3/28 – 3/30}

{alicia} You know how it's supposed to be spring? (I know, hilarious joke, Mother Nature.) Although the weather is going to be spotty, let's not allow it to affect our weekend. Here is a list of things to do to take your mind off winter's unyielding grip. Aren't you just raring to get out, like this little guy? Friday Take a page out of Indy's[...]

Natalie’s Pizza and a Painting Party

4 years ago

{alexis} As a Christmas gift, one of our loveliest friends offered to treat a bunch of girls to a painting party at the Party Studio in Worthington. After a few months of coordinating schedules and perusing the available paintings online, we settled on a day and a butterfly. The class is three hours long so of course we needed to fuel up with pizza, wine,[...]

To Market and a Pitstop at The Angry Baker

4 years ago

{alicia & alexis} Due to our husbands' obsessions with March Madness, Alicia and I both found ourselves with Saturday afternoon free. We spent some time looking through fellow bloggers' weekend event lists and finally settled on the winter market at 400 West Rich. I wandered down from German Village (if it's above 40, not raining, and less than two miles away, I'm walking) and met[...]

Marmi Grand Opening at Easton

4 years ago

{alexis & alicia} This week, we were kindly invited to the grand opening of Marmi Shoes. So together, we let the balloon bouquet lead the way and we popped in to see the selection. First I must say how kind everyone there is: we got a lovely tour, and a great description of the products. Here is just one wall of the store. A lovely[...]

Chicago from the Langham Hotel

4 years ago

{alexis} As I mentioned, I spent a long weekend in Chicago over the St. Patrick's Day holiday. Husband and I always butt heads when it comes to booking hotels, and this trip followed suit. A few weeks before, I began to despair, yelling about how all the reasonable hotels were booked and we would just have to shell out for a five-star. Ever frugal, husband began[...]

Graze Box Giveaway

{alicia} Remember a couple weeks ago when I raved about the wonder that is Graze Box? Alexis and I are such big fans that we thought it would be nice to share the love with one of you! Instead of gorging on this box ourselves, one of you will receive the following: [caption id="attachment_837" align="aligncenter" width="480"] Snacks include cookies & cream, piña colada, yaki soba,[...]

BHLDN in Chicago

4 years ago

{alexis} Last weekend, husband and I packed our bags and jetted off Chicago for St. Patrick's Day. But I had something to do first. Upon landing, and planting husband firmly in front of a TV for the Buckeye game, I headed off to meet one of my best friends for a bridal appointment at BHLDN Chicago. This had always been our plan, and, thanks to[...]

Weekend Consumption

4 years ago

{alicia} After a challenging week at work, I couldn't wait for the weekend to decompress. Nothing elaborate, just me, the ones I love, and the things I love to consume. Since Friday coincided with Pi Day, I insisted on (pizza) pie for dinner. After going back and forth on where, we took the path of least resistance and drove down the street for some Mellow[...]

Dinner and Several Drinks at the Jury Room

4 years ago

{alexis} Last Friday was beautiful, wasn't it? After traipsing around in the mud with Indy at the Scioto Audobon park, we were hungry and required a Friday cocktail or three. Since we live in German Village, we've had take out from the Jury Room several times, but I had never actually been inside. This, I decided, had to be remedied immediately. We grabbed our light[...]

NOLA Pt. II {Food}

4 years ago

{alicia} Since yesterday's post on New Orleans was record-breaking in length, I will make a heroic attempt to keep this succinct. I'm fond of waxing poetic about food, but I'm running on fumes and am somewhat delirious. Lucky for you, I will let the photos do most of the talking. In short, New Orleans is a foodie's dream come true. There are so many delicious[...]

NOLA Pt. I {Sights}

4 years ago

{alicia} What can I say about New Orleans that hasn't already been said? To borrow the words of Chris Rose, “I'm not going to lay down in words the lure of this place. Every great writer in the land, from Faulkner to Twain to Rice to Ford, has tried to do it and fallen short. It is impossible to capture the essence, tolerance, and spirit of[...]

A Stop at Zauber Brewing

4 years ago

{alexis} I've been meaning to go in since I heard they did a game night on Wednesday's, and so finally, last week we got to Zauber Brewing. (This is mostly true. But it was a conversation that really brought me in: While lamenting on Twitter my tendencies toward unsportsmanlike conduct after a loss, they suggested I cheat. Sold.) @WanderandWhine you can always cheat ;) —[...]

{alexis} Readers, we know each other fairly well at this point, right? I want to introduce you to the most important figure in my life. I know, I've mentioned my husband before, and yes, he is supremely important. But really, it's time you know my puppy, Indy. Here he is: [caption id="attachment_622" align="aligncenter" width="517"] Fresh from a haircut.[/caption] He has about a million nicknames, among[...]
