Last week, I went back to Columbus, Ohio--my adopted hometown. Stuff I did that was great: Bob Evans (their banana cream pie is to die for), Flying Pizza on campus,the Monkey's Retreat comix store, Siam Restaurant on Bethel Road (unfortunately, the Indonesian restaurant on north campus was closed), the Coffee Table in the Short North, Victorian Village.
Random Columbus notes: Fans of Flippo the Clown: there's going to be a roast for him in Columbus on October the 22th. I will try to make it. . . I stopped by the offices of Campus Partners and thanked them for helping to make the OSU campus look great . . .A friend told me that infamous local speedtrap New Rome is no more. . .Karen Wycliffe Books has moved north. . .I couldn't make First Thursdays or the Gallery Hop--both great venues for meeting hot women. . .I was disappointed that I can't get a Big Bear hug anymore. . .Andrea Cambern is still looking hot. . . Columbus things I don't miss: Fred Ricart (though I enjoyed the curling iron urban legend about him, Ameritech, and cold winter weather.
