First snow of the year. #winterwonders A bright green ring of moss around the base of a tree trunk. Spotted along the trail during the winter hike at Highbanks Metro park. The crafty burger; double naturally aged beef patties, arugula, cherry wood smoked bacon and creamy ale cheese on a brioche bun topped with a silly straw (Seriously?!) with a side of chipotle cinnamon tempura pickles! Awesome, just awesome! The Venetian Jail pizza, sausage, mushroom, goat cheese, ricotta, arugula, and balsamic vinegar! Patsy's Country cheeseburger an enormous burger topped with Swiss, cheddar, and mozzarella cheeses from Blazing Saddles Saloon. Come for the burgers, stay for the country line dancing (if that's your thing). A stately specimen of the American Sycamore (Platanus occidentalis) towering above the shore line of the Olentangy River as it flows through Highbanks Metro Park.
#treetrove Bibibop Asian Grill is the Asian equivalent of the Chipotle style of dining.
A bowl filled with wild purple rice, bean sprouts, sauteed potatoes, chicken, cucumber, lettuce, carrot, daikon, cheese, corn and egg topped with yum yum sauce. The dormant forest begins to awaken thanks to this installation of #green carpeting of marsh-marigolds (Caltha palustris). Cheese plate consisting of Humbolt Fog, Welsh Cheddar, Mahon, coal-fired french bread, fig preserve, grapes and blood oranges. Very cool old neon sign in front of the Dairy Queen on the main drag in Worthington. (Notice the texture on the cake cone is made from repeating D's and Q's.) Bacon cheeseburger from Fitzy's Old Fashioned Diner. A classic 24/7 diner with all the fixings you'd expect. The only thing missing would be a milkshake, Half with red grapes, Gorgonzola and fresh rosemary. The other half with marinated pulled pork, caramelized onions, pineapple, fresh jalapenos, feta, cilantro and creme fraiche. The grave marker of Joseph Pool who, along with his wife Sally, settled in Ohio after traveling from New York in 1812. They then proceeded to have 13 children. These stones mark the last known pioneer family graveyard in Sharon Township. A couple of dogs from Wholly Joe's. First up, a chili dog with cheese and onions. Secondly, a Chicago dog with mustard, relish, chopped onions, sliced red tomatoes, cucumber, kosher pickle, and sport peppers piled on a steamed poppy seed bun. The Smokehouse Burger from Firebirds Wood Fired Grill in the Polaris area topped with java BBQ sauce, apple-wood smoked bacon, cheddar and red onion with a side of tots.
#delicious CHICKEN FRIED BACON!
A nice and light appetizer of thick cut bacon, hand dipped and deep fried...with a jalapeño and bacon ranch sauce to top off the calorie count! THE BACON STAMPEDE!
A 3/4 burger topped with 10 pieces of crispy bacon piled high and covered with
cheddar and jack cheese, lettuce, tomato, red onion with a homemade chipotle mayo. Cleverly plated chicken and waffles on a wooden Ohio shaped board with jalapeno maple syrup and a side of cinnamon chipotle tempura pickles. Cookie Dough Creamery offers another dimension to the expected froyo experience.
If an endless toppings bar isn't indulgent enough for your sweet tooth, Cookie Dough Creamery offers you entire pans of cookie dough in four different flavors for you to scoop in your cup!
There are other differences too. They don't subscribe to the pay what it weighs model. They offer three pre-priced sizes of vessels for you to pack full.
They also don't serve froyo. They have dairy based flavors and Dole Whip non-dairy flavors. Enumerated earrings, the latest spring fashion of the deer meandering through Sharon Woods Metro Park. Cookie Dough Creamery offers another dimension to the expected froyo experience.

They also don't serve froyo. They have dairy based flavors and Dole Whip non-dairy flavors. So many different kinds of moss. So many different shades of #green . Key lime pie. A must have endgame to any seafood endeavor. A stunning view looking at all the late fall colors along the banks of the Olentangy River as it winds its way through Highbanks Metro Park. Smoked duck sausage with caramelized onions! Trail in Highbanks Metro Park. Part of a loop. 2018 burger no.3
The Ohio Burger from The Whitney House - challah bun, smoked Ohio cheddar. Currywurst (a sliced bratwurst covered in a Berlin style sauce and dusted with curry powder) and Kaese Spaetzle (German Mac and cheese, spaetzle egg noodles and melted Swiss). The three lobed inflated papery seed capsule of the American Bladdernut (Staphylea trifolia). These often persist into winter after the leaves have fallen and stand out in the otherwise barren scrub brush. Half and Half! The back half includes roasted mushrooms, feta, caramelized onions, roasted & fresh garlic & herbs...and starring on the front half: Red grapes, gorgonzola & fresh rosemary. An abandoned mini golf course next to the Days Inn. RiesenOktoberfest Brezen with Obazda. A giant soft pretzel with a Bavarian cheese spread made with brie, cream cheese, butter and onions. Marinated duck stone fired flat bread topped with roasted duck, habanero hoisin sauce, green onion, mozzarella, and fried noodles with a side of sriracha sauce. Bread pudding and fruit cake Overlook at the Highbanks Metro Park. A bit of a trail to get there. But has a nice view. A sunny late November day at Highbanks Metro Park on the Overlook trail. A view from the Eagle nest overlook. There is an Bald Eagle in the tops of a tree in the distance. Family-run eatery dishing up large portions of Italian & American fare, plus happy-hour specials. Most concise collection of Catholic iconography in the city limits. A cool old neon sign atop Capri Lanes. Not is the shiny happiest of neighborhoods, but a good place to bowl cheap. Herb encrusted scallops baked with lemon olive oil and brushed with garlic butter, served with vegetable medley and rice pilaf. Salmon salad A barn on the grounds of Highbanks Metro Park Old reliable. Hot tea with lemon, a waffle and hash browns scattered, smothered and covered. Smoked Trout Dip. Yum! Something's wonky about this joint. John Snow house. Jumbo gyro and fries combo.
