Officially, Indianola Bridge is a state property, and the City helps maintain it. We consulted both the City’s Public Services and ODOT about their schedule to repair the bridge. They have plans to repair the bridge in 5 years, and the extend of the repair has not been determined. The City’s Columbus Arts Commission is aware of plan of repair and has supported the mural project to move forward.
The Ohio Birds Mural is public art itself. It is also a catalyst of transformation of the space into a future bird sanctuary. We’re taking baby step towards an overall improvement of the Glen Echo Park and Ravine. Different things are happening down there, including restoration of native plants. The mural is part of this larger effort.
An amazing exhibition at 400 W.

A new article on Columbus Monthly on the proposed “Columbiad”January 14, 2012 3:28 am at 3:28 am in reply to: If there was really good coffee and hot chocolate on a Food Truck……. #477065
I think coffee truck serving breakfast will be great, before folks heading to work. Coffee with pastries or bread, something from Omega to go with. That will make a good start of a day!
Excuse my ignorance: I’m very curious to know how exactly cafe and restaurant owners feel about mobile food units? I’ve heard here and there complaints like “unfair competition” because the cost of running mobile food units are so much lower than that of brick-and-mortar eateries, but I haven’t seen any restaurant owners, individually or collectively, say things publicly against the food truck trend. On the contrary, I’ve seen cases in which restaurants and bars work with food trucks and street food vendors to better serve customers.
So, how much impact have food trucks had on restaurant businesses?
You’re right on, Walker. We’ve talked to many food truck and cart folks about this concept, all of them like the rotating idea, which gives them freedom to still be on the street and try out other locations.
I want to throw out a question though: Would you as customers like to buy directly from vendors? Or do you prefer to approach a centralized cash wrap to make order and buy drinks, just like a typical cafe?
The exhibit just opens today and the Dispatch articles has picked an interesting angle to focus on Dinin’ Hall—how it can help revitalize struggling neighborhoods. While I believe Dinin’ Hall can benefit these neighborhoods, I want to emphasis that Dinin’ Hall would work best for communities that have no easy access to food and restaurants. Dinin’ Hall can serve locals as well as draw people to the neighborhoods. Along the river can make good locations and there should be many options out there. Dinin’ Hall is a concept that is adaptable to many neighborhoods.
I think we will see atleast a form of this idea sprout out to a few upstart businesses in 2012. Alteast… if I have anything to do with it!
I agree. Some forms of the idea will happen this year. Dinin’ Hall can be one. It aspires to be a street food hub where people can try out food from different vendors in an urban, communal dining setting. Yes, I also agree that it can be an incubator, a testing ground for new menus. Dinin’ Hall can be a great asset to the community, a happening space where people gather and socialize because of street food.
