    Did I miss the announcement on the death of the Franklinton Tap Room somewhere?

    You might try Yutzy’s Farm Market near PLain City, off US 42, south of the Der Dutchman Restaurant. Large deli and farm market – not sure where they may get their eggs from….

    I am fully aware of the history of Federated Josh. The Lazarus family was in control of Federated from its inception in 1929 through the 1970’s, when the first non-family member was elected Chairman. The Lazarus family made Federated what it was.

    Although the holding company started in 1929, the divisions were very much autonomous until the late 1970’s. Federated was known for this at the time.

    This is the last Lazarus branch standing in Columbus. I realize Tuttle and Easton were opened as Lazarus, but this was the last branch opened by family, not the holding company conglomerate. Kingsdale used to be a designer’s mecca – they had the better clothing, cosmetics, home goods, and accessories outside of Downtown and Northland, and catered to the neighborhood. The Macyfication of America dumbed it down into their private label crap. Sad passing. I think the only remaining “Lazarus family” stores are in Indianapolis, Huntington, and Lima. What a way to flop…….

    JCPenney is also closing Eastland with no mention of a new store, that was proposed when Glimcher owned the mall.

    I would drive to Carfagna’s any day of the week for the quality and customer service that I feel is lacking at Mosley’s. I’ve enjoyed the Butcher at Fresh Thyme on Sawmill as well.

    Carlos, some clarification to my post – it was indeed called and spelled Kash ‘n’ Karry Warehouse Markets, a subsidiary of a chain called Seaway FoodTown from NW Ohio (Maumee), and also parent of the Fisher Foods stores that pre dated Fazio’s. Being a weekly patron of the store, I do remember it quite well as Fazio’s had been a full service grocer, and KnK was bare bones warehouse concept, not as nice as Cub Foods and some other warehouse grocers at the time. It’s not uncommon to have similar grocer names – Stop n Shop, Shop and Shop, etc….these were the days before we had mega grocers like Safeway and Kroger….

    The area west of Hilliard, beyond Meijer to the Franklin/Madison County line is Brown Township, similar to other unincorporated areas such as Franklin, Norwich, Washington, Truro townships. It is not carte blanche, there are development standards and rules – Brown Township does not permit any mobile homes and requires a minimum lot size of 5 acres for any new land owner. They are trying to preserve the rural character and the watershed surrounding the Big Darby Creek and its tributaries.

    A major plan was being pursued and developed by multiple townships, municipalities, Franklin County, and the city of Columbus to protect the area, and of course the future water supply to the city of Columbus. This plan is known as the Big Darby Accord. It was very active 2006 to 2008, and is still being discussed and developed after the economic downturn in 2008. At one time, a new freeway exit and town center were being discussed for the area to alleviate the congestion found on the Hilliard Rome Rd. corridor. Hilliard Rome Rd. faced the same pains that Sawmill Road had in 1983 – a rural area transformed into a commercial center without the detail to the infrastructure.

    The stores were separate entities – Fisher Foods/Fazio’s leased space from Lazarus/Federated/Gold Circle. The grocery had different hours from Gold Circle – I remember waiting for GC West Broad to open when grocery shopping with my mother early summer mornings. There was a gate between the two spaces. Also, Fazio’s pulled out of Columbus sometime in the 1980’s, and the stores converted to a warehouse concept called “Kash ‘n’ Karry” which had no affiliation with Fazio’s.

    I usually get the classic sugary frosting – but they have many choices available for cake and frostings. The Granny Rolls are the best – think homemade cinnamon roll with caramel pecans and glaze – they’re sold 6 at a time and are to be savored, warmed, and slathered in butter with your morning coffee….

    I don’t understand this pent up lust for IHOP – especially when you have the BEST pancakes in the world being served across the street at the only Perkin’s Pancake House in Columbus. Perkin’s pancakes are the lightest, fluffiest pancakes of any chain restaurant. The IHOP’s I experienced in California sucked – with pancakes worse than the local Bob Evans’. Give me Perkin’s or a waffle from First Watch anyday…

    EEK! Baja Sol made me wish for Don Pablo’s or ChiChi’s – restauranteurs from Minnesota didn’t know Mexican, in this case, at all.

    The Hayden Run Road bridge spanning the Scioto River was an engineering marvel in modern bridges when it was built over 70 years ago. It combines two truss designs, the Warren truss on each end span and a Petit truss in the center. It was designed to carry horse and buggy traffic and farm wagons.


    That same power line is still there.

    It’s a completely different bridge now, having recently crossed over the current bridge.

    The new bridge opened in 1984. I guess you don’t get around town like you used to….=)

    The Smithsonian National Museum of American History is A MUST – allow plenty of time – it takes more than an hour’s stroll. I was very moved by the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery – it might not be a good choice for a 9 year old – but some of the paintings and historic photographs were amazing. The Holocaust Museum might be too much for him, but is another very moving museum. Those are my top 3…..I thought the Museum of Natural History was a big bore and a waste of precious time. I guess I don’t like rocks and bones…..I’ve heard good things about the Newseum as well….

    YEAH – Kasich was solely reponsible for Lehman Bros……He brought the whole thing down….yeah….the Democrat Spinners are sooo right. Look, at this point, it can’t be any worse than the BOZO running things at the moment….I voted for Strickland but he has proven how incompetent he is time after time. Maybe he should return to the pulpit, but I probably wouldn’t repect him there either….
