    Anyone know of any bars around the Northern Columbus area (short north and above, but honestly anywhere) that offer free peanuts to patrons?

    Dick’s Den, back in the day, I still eat salted peanuts with the shells on.

    I am truly baffled by this… what is the obsession with the free peanut/ popcorn thing?? I dunno- never mattered to me when I was seeking bars. ????

    Oh& I think the Short North Tavern& Xenos still offer this indulgence:)

    stems entirely from nostalgia. where i used to live the bar i frequented had a barrel of peanuts that you could take bowls from to your table. it was the.best.bar.ever. i’m just hoping i didn’t move away from the only place that does that, ever.

    Villa Nova happy hour offers free wings, pizza, subs and popcorn. You know when you sprinkle fish food in a fish tank and the little fishes go into a spastic feeding frenzy, that’s how it is when they bring out the free pizza.

    I believe Thursday has the answer to your question.

    Peanuts are not really nuts– they are legumes. Peanuts are difficult to digest and can make one feel sluggish and lethargic in body and mind. Ideally you should boil peanuts before eating them.

    Adding peanuts to that apple a day that keeps the doctor away is a good way to stay heart-healthy and trim, says a Purdue University professor.

    Researchers at Harvard School of Public Health found that dieters who included a moderate amount of good fat in their diets from foods like peanuts, nuts and unsaturated oils, were able to lose more weight and keep it off over the long term

    http://womenshealth.about.com/cs/heartdisease/a/peanutsheart_2.htm

    The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) affirmed a health claim that peanuts and other nuts may reduce the risk of heart disease when consumed daily in small amounts. This action is based on a large body of epidemiological and clinical studies showing a 25-50% reduction in the risk of heart disease when 1 to 2 ounces of peanuts or nuts are consumed 5 or more times a week.

    http://www.peanut-institute.org/071503_PR.html

    A University of Florida team says peanuts are rich in antioxidants which protect cells from damage linked to heart disease and cancer.

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/4194275.stm

    At least five major studies confirm that eating peanuts can lower risk for coronary heart disease. So it’s no leap to think that peanut butter confers the same benefits. “Suffice it to say that eating peanut butter or peanuts has been associated with lower total cholesterol, lower ldl or ‘bad’ cholesterol, and lower triglycerides, all of which are associated with lower cardiovascular disease risk,” says Richard Mattes, Ph.D., R.D., a professor of nutrition at Purdue University.

    Even better, these health benefits seem to occur without also promoting weight gain.

    Now, I’m sure some maharishi has told you that peanuts, like red meat, stay in your bowels for a decade undigested and you need regular colonics to clear it up…but that’s, forgive the pun, crap.
