A view of the new pedestrian skywalk connecting the convention center to the new downtown Hilton. An abandoned railroad bridge spanning the scioto river hidden in the scrubland, sandwiched between an active quarry and a gated community of luxury condos. Creative cocktails and great pizza in a cozy space. #foodiefinds The North Market is a great spot for lunch in Columbus. Choose from over 30 prepared food counters and specialty shops in a turn-of-the-century farm implements warehouse. Nutella-filled pancake balls made my day at this delightful little cafe. You can also get them filled with dulce de leche or pumpkin-apple butter, but why would you when Nutella is an option! Paired with Sweet ‘N’ Spicy Bacon and blood orange juice. The #CCHolidayLights @ColumbusCommons
Over 300,000 LED lights decorate the downtown park! The view from pitcher's mound looking through the overgrown infield towards home plate inside the now abandoned Cooper Stadium, the former home of the Columbus Clippers, the Triple A affiliates of the Cleveland Indians. Wonderful little pizza joint in German Village. Build your own, or choose from a pre-vetted selection including the likes of the Ohio Double Bacon or the Spicy Yuma (pictured). I also have it on good authority that the gluten-free crust is quite tasty. Behold, The Gates of Hell!
The Gates of Hell is a drainage tunnel that runs beneath High Street, carrying a stream from Glen Echo Park to the Olentangy River. The creek bed is dry most of the time, except after rain. A large steel cage is built in front of the tunnel to ensure no large debris becomes lodged inside.
The interior of the drain includes two bends and when standing at the center, little to no light can be seen.
The interior of the tunnel and the surrounding concrete runoff area are popular canvases for graffiti artists and the area's half pipe design is inviting to skateboarders. A dilapidated dock jutting out into a mucky pond hidden in a tree patch on the west campus of the Ohio State University. Possibly the artist's commentary on the looming gentrification of the King-Lincoln District. A quartet of super fancy pancakes from SuperChef's Breakfast and More! Let's break this down clockwise style; a caramel apple pancake, a pineapple upside down pancake, a Reece's peanut butter cup pancake and a heart shaped red velvet pancake! If you are a fan of Dale Chihuly, don't miss the Glass Magic: Than and Now exhibit at the Columbus Museum of Art. It's there until May 1, 2016 and admission is free on Sundays. They have some beautiful ancient glass on loan from the Israel Antiquites Authority juxtaposed with some of the current masters, like William Morris and Lino Tagliapietra. Cherry Blossoms!
I must be in Washington D.C.
Nope, just walking through the west campus of The Ohio State University. Wall art on an alley in the Short North Arts District. #AsSeenInColumbus #LifeInCbus
The downtown skyline on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Simple, well-crafted donuts available day and night. No need to wake up early to grab a blueberry cake donut or maple bar - these guys are open 24-hr! Cheep pricing makes it easy to try a variety. It's State Fair time again! Are you ready for this one?! A giant red gummy bear on a stick dipped in batter and then of course DEEP FRIED! The setting sun illuminating the trees above the creek inside Glen Echo Ravine.
This spot isn't within the bounds of the actual park. It can be reached by a gravel access path behind Lucky's Market. From there, you can head east along the creek bed, through the ravine and end up inside the park. It's State Fair time again! Deep fried dill pickle and pepper jack cheese. Get your hot dog fix here. Feels a bit like a dive-bar, but fun and great for kids too. Plenty of dogs to choose from - pictured here are Puff the Magic Popper and Sarva's Tot-cho Dog. The jalapeños are the real deal. The Cheese Shop is just one of about 30 food counters in the North Market. After picking out a few cheeses, stop by the bakery to pair them with some fresh bread. This tentacled carnivorous critter is Drosera capensis, the Cape Sundew. A small rosette-forming carnivorous species of perennial sundew native to the Cape in South Africa. The strap-like leaves are covered in brightly colored tentacles which secrete a sticky mucilage that traps insects. When insects are first trapped, the leaves roll lengthwise by thigmotropism (plant's reaction to touch) toward the center. This aids digestion by bringing more digestive glands in contact with the prey.
This and many other tropical species are on display in the OSU Biological Sciences Greenhouse. This is sort of a hidden find. This greenhouse resides on the medical campus of OSU on top of a parking garage. It's not very often that you take an elevator to reach a greenhouse. The fennel sausage pizza with Gouda, havarti, smoked provolone, onion and fennel pollen from Harvest bar and kitchen.
Cute and clever foreshadowing graffiti on the former Rife's Market in Grandview hinting of the upcoming brick and mortar expansion of perennial food truck favorite; Sweet Carrot. 8 Sisters bakery from Mt. Gilead OH packs up their amazing donuts and brings them to downtown Columbus for the Pearl Street Farmer's Market.
Here is a pan full of maple bacon long johns! Maple cream filled and completely covered in bacon. A dark chocolate bacon and a strawberry lemonade donut from Destination Donuts in the North Market. Nashville hot chicken in the North Market! The chicken is sourced from nearby Ohio farms, brined for 20 hours, and double deep fried - you won't be disappointed. Also, 60% of the staff have experienced homelessness and poverty and are getting a second chance to earn a living. Eat great, and feel good about it! Family-friendly BBQ joint with a large menu and good draft beer. Not a gourmet meal, but easily beats any of the chain restaurants for taste and atmosphere.
Tip: Order extra pickles. Hyper-local bakery, crafting everything you see here and more. Scones, croissants, cookies, rolls and ten types of bread are all freshly baked right here in the corner of North Market. It doesn't get any more local than this! The view from an an abandoned overpass on Interstate 70/71 through downtown Columbus. Vegetation has overgrown more than half of the once two lane bridge. A very surreal environment, like a scene from The Walking Dead. Destination Donuts are dreamy decadent desserts from the mind of self proclaimed Donut Queen, Heather Morris.
Nutella Bomb. Boom. In addition to all the cool local shops and restaurants located in Short North district, with a bit of timing and luck, you can look westerly and catch a glorious sunset!
#GoldenHour The Rotunda is one of the most remarkable spaces in the Statehouse. Stretching 120 feet from the floor to the oculus.
The crown jewel in the Rotunda's dome is its 29-foot-wide skylight. The center circle of the skylight is a hand-painted Great Seal of Ohio, a reproduction of the Seal that was in use in 1861 when the Rotunda was completed.
The seal in the dome, which is 3ft in diameter, is slightly different than the seal in use today. This seal not only has the mountains, a sheaf of wheat and a bundle of arrows, but it also includes a canal boat in the foreground. The canals were an important mode of transportation at the time this seal was designed (circa 1847). The seal has changed five times in the course of Ohio's history.
#architecture Feels a bit like a dive-bar, but it's fun and great for kids too. Dozens of amped up dogs to choose from, including Slappy Pappy's Super Sloppy, the Doginator, and the Ohioana. If you want a plain old wiener, order The Glenn Beck. Jeni's is the place to go for quality ice cream in Columbus. What we have here is an ice cream sandwich made with Molasses-Ginger Snap cookies and Goat Cheese and Cherries ice cream. And in the cup we have a hot chocolate float with dark chocolate peppermint ice cream. Both were amazing! This arch is all that remains of Columbus Grand Union Station, the city's third and final train station.
Built in 1897 and designed by Daniel H. Burnham and Company of Chicago, the train station was located in the current footprint of the Greater Columbus Convention Center.
On October 22, 1976, demolition began despite having been listed on the National Register of Historic Places two years earlier. A restraining order federal judge George Smith halted demolition, but it was too late and only one arch of the ornate structure was saved.
In 1999, the arch in its entirety was slowing inched over several blocks to its current location at Dimon McPherson Commons in the Arena District.

A beautiful view of the skyline of downtown Columbus reflecting into the Scioto River during its restoration through the Scioto Greenways Project. The project is involves three primary components: 1) removing the Main Street Dam, 2) restoring the Scioto River channel, and 3) creating 33 acres of new green space. More info at http://www.sciotogreenways.com/ The LeVeque Tower is a steel frame building covered in glazed architectural terra-cotta tiles with an oak-bark texture.
Originally, the building's exterior featured a large number of sculptures. However, much of it had to be removed because the terra-cotta began to crumble and fall to the street. Lost sculptures include four 18 feet eagles at the corners of the building at the 36th floor and four 20 feet statues of colossus and youth on the sides of the building at the setback of the 40th floor
The spaces left by the departed sculpture serve as the bases for lights used to illuminate the tower. The Tower is often illuminated in white, but the colors change for certain holidays. Green for St,. Patrick's Day. Red, White and Blue for the 4th of July. Red and Green for the Christmas season.
#architecture A trio of pink jump roping girls and a collection of pink and blue antennas broadcasting some sort of message on the wall of the Short North Tavern. The iconic sign outside of the Southern Theatre. Very cool and classic looking because of the use of individual light bulbs. A bit of a challenge to photograph since it's only illuminated when there is a performance at the venue.
The Southern Theatre is the oldest surviving theatre in central Ohio and one of the oldest in the state, the Southern Theatre opened in 1896.
The theatre was closed in 1979. The theatre was gifted to the Columbus Association for the Performing Arts in 1986.
In 1998, following an intensive, 14-month CAPA-led restoration, the 925-seat jewel-box Southern Theatre reopened. A wall of soda!
Just a sampling of the 500 or so different soda pops available at Rocket Fizz Soda Pop & Candy Shop in the Short North.
I was in root beer heaven! I spent way more than I should and fully intend on going back to spend more! Festival Latino, held downtown along the Scioto River, is a great opportunity to try a variety of Latin treats.
The absolute highlight, without question, was the elote, or Mexican street corn.
Corn on the cob slathered with mayo, rolled in cotija cheese and chili powder with a generous squeeze of lime juice.
#delicious This is a unique yellow and purple bi-color Calibrachoa called Purple Cartwheel that will be available to the retail market in spring of 2016.
The OSU cultivar trials, located at Ohio State University's Chadwick Arboretum and Learning Gardens, are conducted each year in order to evaluate ornamental bedding and container plants.
The objective of these trials is to observe the performance of new and recently introduced cultivated plant varieties under environmental conditions typical of central Ohio.
Despite their stated scientific and economic purposes, the gardens are beautiful to walk through and photograph. Best of all, they're FREE! Stock up on all your nutty needs at this little shop near Grandview Heights. You'll find giant cashews and colossal pistachios among dozens of other nuts, chocolates and candies. Their all natural peanut butter is also tasty - be sure to try the spicy version too! One of three new bronze deer sculptures in downtown from artist Terry Allen.
This one can be found pontificating on the Rich St. bridge overlooking the new park.
The Scioto Greenways project consisted of three primary components:
1) removing the Main Street Dam,
2) restoring the Scioto River channel,
3) creating 33 acres of new green space. You can't go wrong here. Goat Cheese with Red Cherries and Dark Chocolate Peppermint. The second oldest building remaining on The Ohio State University campus, Orton Hall was opened in 1893. It is named after Dr Edward Orton, Sr. who served as Ohio State's first president, OSU Professor of Geology from 1873 to 1899, and Ohio's State Geologist from 1882 until his death in 1899.
Orton Hall is built of 40 different Ohio building stones. In the outside walls, these stones are laid in stratigraphic order according to their relative positions in Ohio's bedrock. The only non-indigenous to Ohio stone used is Indiana Limestone to build the front steps. It was chosen because of its high concentration of embedded fossils.
The bell tower was dedicated in 1915 and contains 25,000 pounds of bells that can be heard regularly tolling across campus. Encircling the top of the tower are 24 columns with gargoyle-like figures which are restorations of fossil animals. The sunset as viewed from the pedestrian half of the Main St. Bridge. The binoculars mounted to the bridge railing in the foreground are for detailed viewing of the downtown skyline just off to the north of the bridge. A look upriver from the Main St bridge of the skyline and the newly created parkland along the river downtown.
The Scioto Greenways project consisted of three primary components:
1) removing the Main Street Dam,
2) restoring the Scioto River channel,
3) creating 33 acres of new green space. Delightful little cafe in the heart of Columbus. Eclectic menu includes twists on standard breakfast fare (ex: pancake balls) as well as Mexican favs (Mazatlan Pork & Egg Sandwich). Open for breakfast and lunch. Don't miss the creative and tasty veggie dishes at this counter shop in the North Market. Fresh dishes rotate daily, combining ingredients like squash, rutabaga, spinach, quinoa and more. Yup that's right, a hot cocoa bar! A buffet style setup of any and all fixings you can dream up to make your own mug of hot cocoa! What a simple yet brilliant idea! A male red-winged blackbird (Agelaius phoeniceus) showing its red shoulder and yellow wing epaulets.
Scioto Audubon Metro Park, located along the banks of the Scioto River just south of downtown Columbus, is a 120-acre oasis created from an industrial area that contained the former police impound lot.
#hiking So glad to see that the sand-worms from Beetlejuice have managed to stay employed. These planted shoes decorate the raised beds of the horticulture therapy garden on the argriculture campus of The Ohio State University. Allow me to present The An overhead view of the holiday lights display at the Columbus Commons taken from the roof of the parking garage across the street. The Waffle Comes First, Respect The Waffle!
Waffle n'chicken with Ohio maple syrup and hot sauce from Taste of Belgium in the North Market. The Columbus Crew upgraded their stadium's food offerings to include many local vendors for the 2015 campaign.
These are drumsticks from Hot Chicken Takeover, southern style spicy fried chicken.
The food truck at the stadium doesn't offer the hottest of the hot, but these 'warm' drumsticks will have you downing multiple $4 bottles of water! Salt & Pine is located in the newly constructed 250 High building.
While the dinner menu could be construed as intimidating because of some unfamiliar ingredients, the brunch menu is much more approachable and simple delicious!
This the griddlecakes and a side of heirloom potato hash with a dollop of crème fraîche.
Griddlecakes, pancakes, flap jacks, however you refer to them, are a fairly pedestrian breakfast option but these were expertly done with a subtle sweetness to the batter and just a touch of crispness to the outside.
Just a few bites into the meal and my dinner companions were commenting on how they already couldn't wait to return and dine here again. A burger topped with bacon, Ohio Swiss, balsamic red onions and a truffle aioli from Angry Bear Kitchen. The downtown skyline as seen from in front of the Center of Science and Industry.
The Scioto Greenways project consisted of three primary components:
1) removing the Main Street Dam,
2) restoring the Scioto River channel,
3) creating 33 acres of new green space.
Be sure to check out the sandwich counter at this nut shop. They make a variety of tasty sandwiches with their all natural peanut butter and locally crafted jellies. My order of crunchy peanut butter and grape jelly on wheat really hit the spot. The neon pink filament like blooms of the Persian Silk Tree (Albizia julibrissin).
The leaves of this tree are very similar to the leaves of the Sensitive Plant (Mimosa pudica). Unlike the Sensitive Plant, the leaves of the Persian Silk Tree are not thigmotropic and do not close upon touch.
The tree is very attractive in bloom and has a tropical look for being winter hardy in many places in the Northern U.S. However, in many places the tree is invasive and is negatively allelopathic to neighboring plant life.
A miniature boardwalk leading to apparently nowhere tucked away in a wooded area on the west campus of the Ohio State University. The Columbus downtown waterfront along the Scioto River is going through a metamorphosis beginning with the removal of the Main street low head dam. This will drastically affect the width, depth and path of the Scioto River ultimately creating 33 acres of new green space directly in the downtown area. More information on the project can be found at http://www.sciotogreenways.com/ A shot of the setting sun reflecting off one of the buildings of the partial downtown Columbus skyline as seen from the confluence of the Scioto and Olentangy Rivers. A stunning specimen of Fagus sylvatica 'tricolor', the tricolor beech. The crown jewel of a rather impressive collection of ornamental beech trees in the chadwick arboretum. #treetrove A street art rooster with his cockscomb drooping on a currently abandoned building in Franklinton, the burgeoning art hub of Columbus. Built in 1861, this building operated as one of Ohio's first arsenals/armories until the mid 1970's. From then until the present, it's home to the Columbus Cultural Arts Center. Classes offered include bronze casting, clay sculpting, stone carving, ceramics, printmaking, drawing, painting, and jewelry making.
The classes offered are really an inexpensive way to nurture a new talent. There are day, night and weekend classes offered. Classes are generally $55 for 8 weekly 3 hour sessions.
The Cultural Arts Center is located in the heart of the burgeoning art hub in Franklinton and remains a #localgem Blueberry doughnut from DK diner. The shapes may be irregular but the taste is otherworldly! The caramelized vanilla bean cheesecake with a dollop of sorbet and sliced strawberries from Nada, a Cincinnati import billed as a contemporary Mexican restaurant. Translation: artfully plated upscale versions of Mexican street food for gringos who aren't yet comfortable enough to hit up the local taco truck. The Potato Bacon Bomb! Thick sliced golden fried potato planks, cheesy roasted garlic mashed potatoes, crisp hickory bacon, creamy sour cream and scallion sauce and sharp cheddar busting the seams of two slices of homemade bread. The cool retro sign outside of the amazing Little Donut Shop located next to the stalwart concert venue, the Newport Music Hall on The Ohio State University campus. A trio from Jeni's new color collection consisting of
Ultramarine Blue - Pulverized wild Maine blueberries and natural fruit extracts with buttermilk, biodynamic yogurt, grass-­grazed milk, and cream.
Cadmium Yellow - Bitter citron yellow. Crushed whole lemons with bergamot, white grapefruit, biodynamic yogurt, grass-­grazed milk, cream, and buttermilk.
Persian Orange - Mango, passion fruit, and blood orange zest with buttermilk, biodynamic yogurt, grass­-grazed milk, and cream. A sunset scene of the snow covered trees along this inlet of the Scioto River. In the warmer months, looking down from this observation platform rewards park visitors with a view teeming with an array of native turtle species sunning themselves on the natural flotsam and jetsam of fallen tree branches. The Chocolate Pretzel donut, a traditional cake donut dipped in chocolate frosting and topped with two pretzel sticks and finished with a sprinkle of sea salt and a white and dark chocolate drizzle.

This greenhouse resides on the medical campus of OSU on top of a parking garage. It's not very often that you take an elevator to reach a greenhouse. Water beading up on the pale blue bloom of this cultivated variety of Convolvulus. Intended for container or landscape use, this variety should not be confused with its less desired relative, the hedge bindweed.
The OSU cultivar trials, located at Ohio State University's Chadwick Arboretum and Learning Gardens, are conducted each year in order to evaluate ornamental bedding and container plants.
The objective of these trials is to observe the performance of new and recently introduced cultivated plant varieties under environmental conditions typical of central Ohio.

Festival Latino, held downtown along the Scioto River, is a great opportunity to try a variety of Latin treats.
Churros with ice cream topped with hot fudge and caramel sauce.
#delicious The breakfast burger from Chop Shop topped with American cheese, bacon, fried egg, hash-brown, maple syrup and ketchup.
...and not to be ignored, just look at those freaking onion rings! A regular order consists of five gigantic onion rings that must be the equivalent of eating an entire deep fried softball-sized onion. It's time again for the Ohio State Fair, which means it's time for a deep fried fair food feast!
Here is a black forest funnel cake!
Chocolate funnel cake topped with powdered sugar, cherry pie filling, chocolate syrup and whipped cream.
The Ohio Sate Fair started in 1850 and has been held at its current location since 1886.
#WeekendGetaway South of Lane is a tiny neighborhood breakfast/brunch spot located, you guessed it. south of Lane Ave in Upper Arlington.
This pile of #delicious includes hash-browns, chili, cheese, onions, two sunny side up eggs and hot sauce. A limestone sculpture of a sofa by artist, Robert Huff sits at its new home in the courtyard of the Cultural Arts Center.
The sofas was originally installed at Greenwood Park in 2004. Called the “Limestone Sofa” or “Sofa,” the piece sustained damage over the years, serving as a location for panhandling in the Short North.
The piece was removed, returned to the artist for restoration and now resides, renewed, in its new residence. This upscale diner has a fun 60s vibe and a great menu. The Philly Cheese Steak features shaved prime rib - clearly a notch above your standard diner fare. A close-up of the bloom of Buttonbush (Cephalanthus occidentalis) doing its best sputnik impression. The Pepper Burger from O'Reilly's Pub is still the best burger in the city, in my opinion.
Bacon and provolone cheese cover a beef patty that has been rolled in black peppercorns....just literally engulfed in black peppercorns. Spicy, strong, intense.
I can't think of a better culinary nightcap for my birthday. Behold, The Gates of Hell!
The Gates of Hell is a drainage tunnel that runs beneath High Street, carrying a stream from Glen Echo Park to the Olentangy River. The creek bed is dry most of the time, except after rain. A large steel cage is built in front of the tunnel to ensure no large debris becomes lodged inside.

#hiking Get your giant nuts here! Stock up on giant cashews and colossal pistachios, among dozens of other nuts, chocolates and candies. Their all natural peanut butter is also tasty - be sure to try the spicy version too! The prototype of the new hoop design being considered for the upcoming NBA season. It's State Fair time again! Deep fried buckeye (a chocolate and peanut butter candy in the shape of the fruit of the state tree, for you Non-Ohioans) The loaded Mr. Potato Head, with cheddar, bacon, scallions and baked potato from Mikey's Late Night Slice. With locations strategically placed around town, it's a great bet for pizza anytime of night. #lateplates The Crest Burger, cold-smoked, house-ground patty, caramelized beer onions, herb mushrooms, swiss cheese and oven roasted tomato on a house baked bun. Served with a side of wood fired truffle mac and cheese. The shell or husk left behind by a molting Cicada from the genus Tibicen. The annual late summer mating songs of the male cicadas are a disparaging alert to kids that school will be starting soon. If you ever happen upon one emerging from its husk, take the time to watch it happen! The tiny shriveled wings will enlarge and form a neon green almost stained glass mosaic pattern! Peanut Butter and Jelly Bread Pudding, the January dessert of the month. Homemade peanut butter bread pudding sliced in half to represent two slices of “white bread” then layered with fresh made sweet peanut butter, candied peanuts and strawberry preserves. Topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, fresh whipped cream & strawberry sauce. A half dozen deliciously decadent donuts and a week's worth of calories from The Little Donut Shop in The Ohio State University Campus area. Pictured are the Fruity Pebbles, Milky Way, Maple Bacon, Chocolate Pretzel, Birthday Cake and Strawberry Shortcake!
