Concert Review: Bush

Matt Ellis Matt Ellis Concert Review: Bush

I have to admit that I was a little apprehensive about seeing Bush play live for the first time 18 years. After the recent surge in 90′s nostalgia tours I was half expecting a lazy performance from a band happy to sit on it’s pile of no-longer-aired-radio-hits.

Restaurant Review: Acre Farm-to-Table To-Go

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Acre Farm-to-Table To-Go

Acre feels something like a start-up cousin to the Northstar Café. Both have counter service, both promote locally-grown sensibilities. Both have rice bowls on the menu. But at Acre, the counter team wears plaid shirts, while the back of the house wears serious white chef gear (minus poofy hat). And Acre doesn’t have a double-digit […]

Jenna Taylor Jenna Taylor Nightlife Review: Kingmakers Board Game Parlour

Let’s be honest, Columbus’s nightlife scene can get pretty dry during the winter season. Besides lurking through bars and catching up on those Netflix series, options seem more limited when it’s cold out. But what if this entire winter, you’ve been overlooking a trending concept that’s the first of its kind in the city of […]

Film Review: Two Days, One Night

Hope Madden Hope Madden Film Review: Two Days, One Night

A woman wakes from a nap due to a phone call. She’s baking for the kids. It seems like a lovely way to spend your afternoon, really, drowsy and surrounded by the smell of baked goods. So why does Sandra (Oscar-nominated Marion Cotillard) sound defensive about the nap and too enthusiastic about the treats with […]

Three to Go: An Art Field Trip in Columbus

Jeff Regensburger Jeff Regensburger Three to Go: An Art Field Trip in Columbus

I cleared out some space on my calendar on Friday so I could enjoy a mini art field trip. My intention was to catch up on some area artists and venues, both old and new. The fact is there are a lot of great places to see art in Columbus, certainly more than I typically […]
