Cool Days, Hot Sandwiches

 

Cold weather is coming, but you still have to eat. So, make it good. Dave Ruhl and his crew at The Carvery will lure you out on even the coldest of days.

 

The menu is unpretentious, but Dave and his crew focus on the details. Every. Single. One.

 

A baker arrives in the wee morning hours to prepare handcrafted ciabatta bread (and desserts). In the meanwhile, Dave and the crew hand roll roasts with herbs and spices and slide them into the oven, while others make homemade mayonnaise, salad dressings and soup. And, don't forget the house-cured bacon. Mmmm, bacon. Vegetarians, don't fret though; Dave offers a great vegetarian sandwich, too.

 

Leave a comment on our Facebook page about what you like about the downtown food scene, and you will be entered to win lunch at the Carvery.

Treat to Try: Loralie's Baking Co. Brownies By Miriam Bowers Abbott 

Lots of people don't like cake, but it's hard to find a person who won't eat a brownie. Always the first to disappear at potluck dessert tables, there's something about the density and soft intensity of the treat that makes it irresistible. [Read More...]

Interview: Newest City Councilman Shannon Hardin By Jesse Bethea, Photo by Walker Evans

Columbus City Council has been appointed Shannon Granville Hardin to fill the seat left by outgoing council member A. Troy Miller. Before his appointment to Council, Hardin served as a member of Mayor Michael Coleman's administration for a number of years and was selected as a council member from a pool of 27 candidates.

Councilman Hardin was kind enough to call in for a lengthy conversation on what he hopes to accomplish during his time in office and his vision for the city's immediate future. [Read More...]

COTA Looking at Raising Fares, Charging for CBUS By Brent Warren

The Central Ohio Transit Agency (COTA) is looking into raising fares and charging to ride the CBUS downtown circulator. A standard bus ride would go from $2.00 to $2.25 and the cost of riding the CBUS would be fifty cents. Four public meetings are scheduled to present the possible fare adjustments and gather input.  [Read More...]

 

Tourism Contributes $8.7 Billion to Columbus Economy By Walker Evans

Columbus doesn't have mountains, oceans or internationally known landmarks, but that doesn't mean that tourists are non-existent in our city. In fact, Experience Columbus released a report yesterday that highlights the fact that economic impact from visitor spending is up 11% in the past two years to a grand total of $8.7 billion, generated by 37.6 million visitors.   [Read More...]

 

Proposal Would Redevelop Two Long-Vacant Campus Apartment Buildings By Brent Warren

On Wednesday, the teachers of Columbus City Schools were notified that the district was recalling bonuses awarded for the 2010-11 school year. According to state auditor reports, administrators at CCS misrepresented school performance activities and manipulated data to improve ratings.

Development Roundup: Updates on Barrett, The Olympic, and More By Brent Warren

A Buckeye Real Estate proposal calls for the redevelopment of two long-vacant apartment buildings south of the Ohio State University campus. New apartments, townhomes, and parking would be added to the back of the two structures - a three-and-a-half story brick building at 1509 North High Street and a two-story row house behind it that fronts West Ninth Avenue.   [Read More...]

 

Fashionistas See More Room for National Chains in the Short North By Walker Evans

On Friday, a new two-story Anthropologie store opened in the Short North, marking the entry of one of the first national retail brands to enter the district that is primarily populated with local and regional businesses. While pricier boutiques have long been a part of the Short North shopping experience, national brands have been kept at bay partly due to a lack of larger spaces that are more ideal for a bigger store footprint..

ENTERTAINMENT

Japanese Arcade

Japanese Arcade and Gift Shop Opens in The Short North By Walker Evans

Anthony Locke and Shane Mack first met at an anime convention and became fast friends. After attending many more conventions together throughout each calendar year, the duo decided to showcase their fandom in a more dedicated fashion.

"Why cant we just have a small convention every day with Japanese import arcade machines, toys and Pocky?" said Locke. "And so the concept of Gotcha Gachapon was born."  [Read More...]

 

100-Year-Old Underground Bowling Alley Reopens DowntownBy Walker Evans 

If you've ever walked down the sidewalk on East Broad Street past The Athletic Club of Columbus, then you've stood on top of a bowling alley.

Theatre Review: Evo Takes You on an Emotional Journey

By Anne Evans 

The company of Shadowbox Live dazzles in their reincarnation of the 90s off-broadway rock musicalEvo. Many of the banners throughout the stage were from the original show. Director Stev Guyer decided to bring this show he wrote with Jimmy Mak back, and I'm glad he did since I was not here to see the first version.  [Read More...]

Arepazo review

Restaurant Review: Arepazo Tapas Bar Grille

By Miriam Bowers Abbott, Photo by Mollie Lyman

The new Arepazo Tapas Bar Grille is doing its own thing down in the Brewery District.

Sure, it's from the same good people who created a legendary joint in Pearl Alley, famous for empanadas and a cilantro sauce that people will spill blood over.

But the new digs are a little glitzier. It's more Frida Kahlo. In fact, there's a Frida portrait hanging right at the front of the restaurant, as well as other bursts of color installed throughout the establishment that brighten up the heavy woodwork.  [Read More...]

Blue Jackets win

By Rob Mixer at the Blue Jackets

The Calgary Flames were determined to make this a far more interesting outcome than it appeared after 40 minutes tonight at Nationwide Arena.
