Cup O Joe Closing Lennox Location:
"Waiving the lease of an established locally-based coffee shop seems like a shortsighted move for a retail complex that primarily caters to Ohio State students, particularly in the current retail climate."

Four-Story Building to Bring More New Apartments to Harrison West:
"Wonder how long before developers buy out the rest of the businesses on that median? Seems like it's only a matter of time before that entire stretch of Michigan Ave is nothing but apartments and condos."

Restaurant Review: Short North Deli:
"Walker owns the title "least self aware person in the world" . What opinions you don't delete you Attempt to belittle. Why do you feel the need? I think you are a bit messed up dude. And you have zero clue how you come across. How do you get anything done wallowing in others comments in an attempt to stifle expression? "

Restaurant Review: Short North Deli:
"I wasn't really complaining, just stating a fact. I wouldn't have brought it up at all, but the fact that you used my comment to plug Condado made me want to respond! For someone who runs a site that invites comments, you sure get annoyed when people express their opinion."

Restaurant Review: Short North Deli:
"I've never seen "margarita drunk 20 somethings" at lunch at Condado (or really anywhere else for that matter). But I guess everyone needs something to complain about."

Restaurant Review: Short North Deli:
"Meh- if I want a good, cheap taco I will go eat at a truck. I am too old to be bothered with the margarita drunk 20 somethings this place seems to attract in droves."

Construction Roundup: Short North & University District:
"I drove down High Street two nights ago and noticed the tower crane was almost all the way up at the Taco Bell site on Campus and the crane base was in place at the 711 N High development. That will make 8 cranes in just the Short North and University District in addition to 5 that are currently up downtown with a few more to come. The amount of development over the next year is going to be incredible."

Work Begins on Major Short North Streetscape Improvements:
"Softwood trees don't last a human lifespan...and the ravaging of ash trees might add to this perception.Then there's the times the City just flat-out removes seemingly good trees. ;)"

Restaurant Review: Short North Deli:
"Lol... I was thinking the same thing... I just had the (always delicious) $12 egg salad sandwich at Katzingers yesterday​... And I'm sure I'll be back for another one very soon! The prices mentioned in the review seem pretty standard/reasonable to me. "

Exhibition Review: Action at a Distance at Angela Meleca Gallery:
"I'm excited about this as a Columbus resident, and as a Lebanese-American, among other reasons to be excited about thoughtful and thought-provoking works of art like this. Can't wait."

Work Begins on Major Short North Streetscape Improvements:
"Some trees may be approaching their end of life or have less than obvious defects that are only apparent to trained arborists. Plus, this new streetscape will also likely include silva cell underground systems that will both prevent buckling of the sidewalk surfaces as well as provide a healthier root zone for the new trees. It will take time but these trees will be healthier, leafier, and the canopy will be far greater than what you see now."

Work Begins on Major Short North Streetscape Improvements:
"Did I miss where I said anything against buses? You may want to do some research on streetcars before making blatantly ignorant accusations. For one, even with all of COTA's attempts to improve their bus systems, they have not made nearly enough investment to improve them to the capacity of streetcars. While streetcars are also not as efficient as dedicated light rail, they have many benefits over the standard bus line (notice my use of the word 'standard', something that could describe Columbus's bus system, but would not describe the more advanced bus systems of other cities). It all starts with a redesigned street system that is friendlier to alternative transit, and electrifying the line (did you know that's what the arches in the Short North were originally for?!) that prevents the common point-source emissions of the traditional buses.References: https://streets.mn/2013/03/12/six-less-obvious-benefits-to-streetcars/ http://humantransit.org/2009/07/streetcars-an-inconvenient-truth.htmlI look forward to your rebuttal."

Restaurant Review: Short North Deli:
"As someone who lives in the short north, having somewhere you can truly have a quick bite to eat is a commodity. Your options for quick, light dinner are Northstar... and UberEats."

Restaurant Review: Short North Deli:
"How long have you been picketing out front of Katzingers? The $13 club sandwich they've been selling for 30 years must really grind your gears."

Condado Will Take Over Clintonville's La Patrona Space for its Fourth Columbus Location:
"Go on a taco truck tour - delicious authentic Mexican food for very reasonable prices. Gringo faux Mexican food is okay but try the real deal."
