    Another missed opportunity to put much needed bike lanes on an amply wide street.

    Will the audible pedestrian signals be the bird chirp, beep-boop, or “Wait!…Wait!…Wait!” variety?

    I went last night for Valentine’s as well. We mostly split small plates so we didn’t get to try any entrees.

    The cocktails and beer selection were very good. I recommend the Citrus Punch.

    They had a diverse selection of oysters which were all excellent.

    The “Devils on Horseback” are bacon-wrapped figs with ricotta cheese. Definitely a highlight of the meal. The cheese curds were also very good.

    The one disappointment of the meal was the pound of “hot” wings. These wings, while tender and well-prepared, were overly salty and lacked any spice. I wouldn’t order those again.

    For dessert, we split a slice of “crack” pie. Its carmelly-crunchy deliciousness is worth saving room for.

    So eschewing bike lanes, light rail, the 3C corridor, and snow plows makes Columbus intelligent?

    I like Snap! I live across the street from the Grandview location. I love the convenience and that it’s always open. They usually do charge an enrollment fee of $50-150 depending on what monthly rate you want to pay, though they waive this sometimes.

    They have almost every kind of machine you could want and freeweights, but they don’t have classes, a pool, or some other amenities of larger gyms. I heard that the Upper Arlington location has classes though.

    The count is now at 7 bicycle-related accidents on Campus since the beginning of the semester. Some students say bike lanes will make the roads safer for cyclists.

    Columbus was ranked 34th in bike-friendliness by Bicycling Magazine. We still have a ways to go.

    Is it just me or do sharrows remind you of road kill? Why has the city decided to universally adopt these useless symbols over bike lanes?

    I used to enjoy cutting through the Statehouse grounds, they obviously don’t enjoy it as much as I did.

    Nice things we can’t have:

    • A beautiful pond without a fountain
    • A beautiful pond with an attractive fountain
    • A full pond with an ugly fountain
    • A full pond with an ugly fountain without graffiti

    I think anything is better than the vacant lots that currently line 3rd Ave. What that street really needs are bike lanes. Hopefully 3rd will be due for repaving after the heavy equipment has cleared out; they should do it then. There are almost as many cyclists on that road as High St.

    A few years back, Sabos decided to liquidate their camping gear (tents, backpacks, kayaks, etc.) and rely completely on selling trailers and RVs. In this economy, that was a foolish move. It’s a shame, because there’s been one less place in town to buy outdoor gear.

    It will be a sad day when I can’t hitch a free ride on COTA anymore. Every vacation has to end sometime.
