Last month I traveled to Europe vicariously through the cuisine made in Columbus’s best cultural restaurants in Part 1 of "Around Columbus with a Fork". This month, I continue my adventure as I reposition my palate and take on the city’s offerings in Thai, Indian, Mexican, Latin, and Korean fare. In this installment, I venture to Nida’s Thai on High, Aab India, Local Cantina, El Arepazo, and Bibibop. Nida’s Thai on High: The exposed brick walls that hug the bar and tables in this urban Thai vacation provide an escape from Columbus’ blustery winter winds. The dishes of Thailand draw...

Fall means fires, fruit orchards, football games and festivals. Fall means finding your frumpy sweaters and forgetting your fit beach bod in preparation for the frigid months ahead. Fall gives trees a fresh face during this multiple month makeover. The result is a visual overload of reds, oranges and yellows that cannot be ignored. This post is dedicated to the top five foliage finds in Ohio, and since Hocking Hills is on everyone’s mind as a potential number one spot, I’ll omit it and make room for other contenders. With help from my friends at the Ohio Department of Natural... Continue reading

An unusually mild August morning invited me to one of my favorite bike trails in Ohio - the Westerville bike trail. Within a few miles of my home, it only takes me a few minutes to hop on the trail and cruise north to the quaint town of Galena or south to Uptown Westerville. What’s nice about this bike trail is its flat terrain, minimal road crossings, and shaded path. This route, officially titled the Alum Creek Trail, is actually a portion of the Ohio to Erie bike path, which is a culmination of trails that connect Ohio’s riders from... Continue reading

As the summer draws to an end, I made it my goal to get out on my bike before the Ohio weather decides to bring on winter’s wrath. I wanted to try something new, something active, something I could suggest to others if they had just a few hours to spare. The Hockhocking Adena Bikeway provides the answer to this prevalent predicament. The world is different when on a bike. A slower pace and smaller means of transportation not only allow for more time and easier navigation, but provide a different perspective, a much needed perspective in today’s world. This...

Hot dogs. A food that conjures up memories of youth, a food essential to American culture; a food that can be simple or stuffed, dressed up with toppings or dressed down with a single condiment. The hot dog has also become a staple at baseball games all across the nation, thanks to a man named Harry Stevens. The inventor of the baseball scorecard, Stevens decided to sell hot dogs as an alternative to ice cream on cold baseball game nights. That decision may have created one of the most quintessential American pairings: baseball and hotdogs. Stadiums around the state of... Continue reading

On the second floor of Columbus' COSI, America’s number one science center as voted in Parents Magazine, stands a portal into the realm of ubiquitous myths. Within this door, questions of the strangest kind are answered through the use of science: Will Christmas lights burn an entire Christmas tree down? Will a duct tape canoe really stay afloat? Does toast usually land butter side down? All these questions and many more are answered in the MythBusters Explosive Exhibition on display now until September 2 . For those unfamiliar with the Discovery Channel show, hosts Jamie and Adam take universal myths... Continue reading

Downtown hipsters and urban soccer moms unite. The new Hills Market Downtown has arrived for stocking up on local goodies for the week or for a quick weekday lunch. I describe the new grocery as a hybrid of Trader Joes and Columbus’ North Market. The small size and unique array of goods bring to mind Trader Joes, while the emphasis on local conjures up the variety found at North Market. I would say the Hills Market is a very happy medium between the two. Like its sister store in Worthington, the downtown branch makes its own house products and stocks... Continue reading

I am a certified bookworm. I love holding books, smelling their fresh or worn pages, and of course I love reading them. Books are comforting and have much to say without speaking at all. For me, a shopping spree means completing my collection of classic fiction novels rather than completing my wardrobe. Bookstores are always warm; the books that line the shelves serve as insulation as well as inspiration. Books are more of a culture, a lifestyle rather than a hobby for me. As an English major, I know many of my peers can agree with me on that seemingly... Continue reading

Being a vegetarian isn’t easy, especially a vegetarian in college where it’s quicker and much more cost efficient to walk a block for a ninety-nine cent cheeseburger rather than pay five bucks for a soggy salad. That’s why I’ve made it a goal to search for the best vegetarian/vegan hotspots around Columbus that us herbivores can enjoy. The following restaurants are my five favorites in the Columbus area. 1.) Northstar Café: Northstar Café deserves a spot on this list. Although not 100% vegetarian, most dishes can be made to accommodate. This hip, urban restaurant is just cool. Using Ohio-grown and...

It’s a sun-filled, unusually warm Sunday in November. I have my best friend by my side and an empty schedule for the day. I’m going to Toledo. In Toledo one can find music and Mud Hens, baseball and bridges, glass and gardens, restaurants and a river. In my case, I found Packo’s and portraits. After doing some research and finding that Tony Packo’s is a staple of Toledo cuisine, I had to hunt down Ohio’s home for Hungarian hot dogs and hot peppers (try saying that five times fast). The only problem with going to a restaurant that serves mostly... Continue reading

If you’ve never heard the name Annie Leibovitz, it's more than likely you have seen one of her photographs at some point. And if you’ve never seen an iconic Annie Leibovitz photograph, now is your chance to see over 300 of them at the Wexner Center on Ohio State’s campus. The enticing exhibit is broken up into three sets: a collage of proofs, the Master Set, and Pilgrammage. The collage sits at the foot of the staircase leading viewers to the exhibit. It is compiled of alternate takes and portraits, some of which make up the exhibit. This portion can... Continue reading
