Nolan in WWII, Bruce Willis in CBUS: Movies This Week

Hope Madden Hope Madden Nolan in WWII, Bruce Willis in CBUS: Movies This Week

So many movies! WWII epics, foul mouthed nuns, Bruce Willis in Columbus, foul mouthed besties, intergalactic adolescent fantasy, and Sally Hawkins in an award-worthy turn. Too many to cover, but I hit what I could. Mainly, see Dunkirk. For real. Dunkirk Christopher Nolan, one of the biggest imaginations in film, takes on a WWII epic. […]

Treat to Try: Good Food Bakery

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Treat to Try: Good Food Bakery

Sure, it’s prime-time for growables such as sweet corn and tomatoes, but the local farmers market scene continues to provide excellent opportunities to try out independent, local baked goods. Even though bakeries can operate 365 days of the year, the summer markets give them sales outlets and opportunities that simply don’t exist in the winter. […]

Put it in Your Face Sandwich Cart isn’t quite a food truck. As the name suggests, it’s a diminutive food cart. That said, the cart puts out great big flavors from a menu that’s just as formidable as anything with a steering wheel and an engine, and the sandwich cart makes appearances at food truck […]

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Treat to Try: Smidgen

A good-looking macaron is impossible to pass by. The treats are so prissy and dainty, and yet . . . so packed with flavor. Too often, pretty food and delicious food share too little space in Venn Diagrams. That said, macarons are treats that occupy that shared space. So the house macarons are the initial […]

Restaurant Review: Red Door BBQ

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Red Door BBQ

Red Door BBQ is a sign that Franklinton is an evolving neighborhood: the area is entering the early revitalization stage that happens about a decade before gentrification pushes out the local inhabitants. The eatery opened with a splash this spring, just in time for barbecue season, and has already scored a spot on local BBQ […]

Fireworks in Theaters: Baby Driver, Beguiled, Bad Batch & More

Hope Madden Hope Madden Fireworks in Theaters: Baby Driver, Beguiled, Bad Batch & More

We’ve had a couple of dud weekends at the movies, but theaters are ablaze with the pre-Fourth fireworks of really good movies. Edger Wright’s hotly anticipated rocker Baby Driver meets expectations with a head-on collision, while Sofia Coppola’s Cannes-winning version of The Beguiled proves its mettle, as well. And for horror buffs, Girl Walks Home […]
