    Is there anywhere to sit? Either tables/chairs or a park nearby?

    Or, if you’re in a sandwich mood (you’re at Five Guys after all), get the roasted pork bahn mi sandwich for $5. Amazing!

    I was never a fan of Saigon, but not sure if I tried the pho. My top pho destination is MiLi Cafe, and their cousin, Buckeye Pho on Bethel, seems to be following the same recipe. Very flavorful broth. I am so in for a Pho Grand Prix.

    And, actually, making pho at home isn’t hard. Basically roast your spices & aromatics, cook in beef broth, add noodles & garnish. I just haven’t figured out the right noodles to use yet.

    Had a great burger and BBQ tots from Street Thyme yesterday. Easy, fast, cheap. I love it. My only suggestion, and I mentioned it to Eliza yesterday, is that they get a couple highchairs. It’s hard to eat with a squirmy toddler in your lap.

    693 of Ohio’s gas and oil wells failed inspections in 2011
    Plunderbund.com

    In the wake of the recent Youngstown-area earthquakes, the debate over expanded oil and gas production in Ohio is heating up. Since one of the primary areas of concern is public and environmental safety, we thought it would be helpful to take a look at violation records for existing oil and gas wells in Ohio to see how the industry is doing.

    We took a look at data from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) obtained through public record requests along with data obtained from ODNR’s RBDMS database and we found that 693 gas and oil wells in Ohio failed inspections performed by ODNR inspectors last year, resulting in 1,625 distinct violations.

    My daycare provider has spent the last year trying to get her new center up and running. So much red tape and far too many headaches they kept canceling and dicking her around.

    Good lord. I’m finding waiting lists for daycare to be a year or longer, which means I’m unavailable for full-time work and not producing much income tax revenue to the City. So counterproductive.

    To show solidarity with Chad, and enjoy this fine summer day, a few of us who work on Gay Street have decided to take our laptops down to the J Gumbo’s patio around 3:30 today for some teleworking and happy hour food & beer.

    You’re all welcome to join us, even you DPS lurkers.

    If there is a silver lining to this, it’s that it should mean even more business for Cafe Brioso a block north.

    I wish that were true, but Brioso’s baked goods aren’t particularly good. There is a definite lack of cookies and donuts downtown, and I say this as someone who requires a sugar infusion every afternoon. Can’t wait for Pearl Market’s return.

    One thing the Other Paper neglected to mention is that there were four other film projects currently in the hopper at the office when its entire staff (of two) was sacked (link[/url]). There was no overlap between the Strickland folks leaving and the Kasich folks coming on, so that means no time to bring anyone up to speed on the status of the applications that had been submitted, or where they were in the process. I can only imagine that means producers applying for credits will have to start all over at square one. Not the best way to run a transition.

    Not sure about fun at this point, but likely there will be national implications.

    Point taken. I hope it’s not as “fun” as staying up all night waiting for Florida in 2000.

    There are plenty of reasons (berdawn outlines a few) to care about a Nevada race, even if you don’t have connections to the State. The Senate is a national body and Nevada is one of about 11 races with the potential to swing the Republican direction. It’ll be one of the last ones to report, time-zone wise, and could end up making the difference for the Rs’ attempt to grab the majority.

    I’ll also be watching the ballot issues in Colorado to redefine personhood and to legalize marijuana in California. I’m also curious how many votes the Rent is Too Damn High guy gets in NY. It’ll be a fun night with some serious national implications. No reason just to focus on Columbus/OH.

    Blendon Woods has an ultimate frisbee course, which is kind of fun for a change and might be cool with kids. Highbanks has some nesting bald eagles you can see if you take a hike with the park naturalist. The metroparks are pretty amazing. I’m not a huge fan of the playgrounds in Columbus city parks (many are old and badly maintained), but Worthington has some great city parks with brand new playground equipment. Oh, and still on the subject of playgrounds, Millstone Creek Park in Westerville[/url] is pretty unbelievable.

    mine are:

    Roasted Pork Bahn Mi at Mi Li Cafe
    Turkey and Jalapeno at Si Senor
    Torta Piema at Cuco’s
    Steak wrap with everything at Phat Wraps

    And I wouldn’t turn down a reuben anywhere – Lindey’s and TipTop have particularly good ones.
