CAPITAL CROSSROADS SPECIAL IMPROVEMENT DISTRICT

 

 

  Nostalgia Meets Delicious

 

When you were a kid, did you ever press your face up against the windows of the old Lazarus store to watch the glittery Christmas displays? Then, did you beg your mom or grandma to take you to the Chintz Room for a fat slice of cheesecake?

 

Well, the new Chintz Room brought the cheesecake back (and the chicken salad, too). There is just enough of the vintage Chintz Room and Lazarus to bring a big smile. By the time you dive into your meal, these new digs will be your new favorite hangout.

 

How about giving your own little ones the same experience you had as a kid? Saturday is your chance. Breakfast with Santa takes place for kids of all ages. Feast your eyes as well as your stomach on the delicious nostalgia.

 

But you don't have to wait until Saturday. Celebrate all week long during grand opening festivities. The reunion for former Lazarus and Chintz Room employees takes place today, and then Nina West, Virginia West and Naughty Santa arrive on Thursday from 8 - 10 p.m. Get the latest news about special events on the Chintz Room Facebook Page. And don't miss this week's Blue Plate Special featuring The Chintz Room.

NHL All-Star Fun

 

We've always known that Columbus is an all-star town. The NHL has figured it out too. This January, the NHL All-Star Weekend will be held in Columbus, and there's lots more going on that just the All-Star Game itself. The Columbus Blue Jackets announced last week plans for the All-Star Winter Park to be held in McFerson Commons across from Nationwide Arena.

 

The park will feature the Scott Miracle-Gro Community Rink, an NHL-sized outdoor rink where you can enjoy public skating for just $5 (includes skate rental). There will also be youth hockey games, private events and other programming. The rink will be open January 16 - 25.

 

You won't want to miss the Snow Slide presented by Huntington, a 34-feet tall, 35-feet long giant three-lane slide. It will be erected in the westbound lanes of Nationwide Boulevard between Marconi and West St. January 22 - 25. The cost is a mere $2 per ride, and snow-gliders can access the slide at three different heights to ensure fun for all ages.

 

The Dispatch Media Group Hockey House will offer live music, food and beverages, as well as a Kids Zone full of family-friendly activities (it won't be just the kids who'll be jazzed about the Blue Jackets Replica Locker Room). PS: Both tents will be heated. You can also stay warm in front of the fire pits near the entrance to the Winter Park. Toast a s'more and bask in the glow.

 

Speaking of glow, the footprint for all the NHL All-Star venues and attractions will be illuminated with a spectacular lightscape comprised of approximately 350,000 lights wrapped around trees and canopies.

 

The NHL Fan Fair will be held at the Greater Columbus Convention Center January 23 - 25, a festival of fun for hockey fans of all ages. Enjoy interactive games and attractions, special appearances, trophy and memorabilia displays, live TV and radio broadcasts, music, food and more. Grab your tickets today, because the chance to take a picture with the Stanley Cup doesn't come along every day. Advance tickets are $12 for adults, $10 for children three to 12, $10 for seniors and college/military with ID, and children two and under are free.
