My apologies for any confusion (and I appreciate the excitement!), but Castles in the Sky screens tomorrow (Saturday) afternoon.
Tonight, the Wexner Center hosts a visit by Brazilian filmmaker Walter Salles (a two-time Oscar nominee), who is here to show his classic Central Station and participate in an audience Q&A after.
Here is a link to the schedule for the remaining films that will screen as a part of our Studio Ghibli series:
Please note: Because of the expected demand, we’ve added a second matinee of My Neighbor Totoro for the Friday after Thanksgiving.May 23, 2012 1:55 pm at 1:55 pm in reply to: An Evening with Carrie Fisher at The Wexner Center 5/23 #483629
This is tonight; good seats remain!
Come out for a lively discussion that will benefit to worthy organizations–the Wexner Center for the Arts and the Ohio State University’s STAR (Stress, Trauma, and Resilience) Program of the Wexner Medical Center.
If you have any intention of ever rebuilding a garage on the existing site, you may want to hold off on a tear-down, as a new garage may not be compliant with existing city codes re: how close one can be to, say, your neighbor’s property or an alley. The way to get around that is to use at least a small part of the existing garage in a newly built one, so it’s grandfathered in under the older code restrictions.

Then I can show how the Icons of Columbus list includes the Scioto Country Club, but not the Scioto River.
I didn’t make up the survey or see the results until they were printed, but it looks like all the icons were manmade.December 28, 2011 5:32 pm at 5:32 pm in reply to: Moody Nolan Imagines New Office Tower for Columbus Bicentennial Magazine #474786
Hey, a quick point of clarification: this publication is a collaboration among the bicentennial organizers, Columbus Monthly and Columbus C.E.O. (subscribers of both publications are receiving this bicentennial pub with their regular magazines), as well as our colleagues at The Other Paper and Suburban News Publications. It should be going online at some point in the near future; I’ll make sure to post a link here when it does.
Anyway, we asked for local architecture firms to shoot for the stars in imagining uses for the little remaining undeveloped space in downtown Columbus. It was meant to be a conversation-starter; I’m glad it’s sparked up some interest!
Having lost all hope of Benevolence reopening, a question: Does anyone happen to have a recipe for its house dressing? I miss it very very very much.

What a great photo, Lakee911–thanks for sharing it. While it has been years since I patronized that White Castle, I’ll be sorry to see it go.March 21, 2011 6:25 am at 6:25 am in reply to: Vote Rob Wood for Clintonville Area Commissioner District 1 #433987
Although I haven’t been following the goings-on in the CAC (or its elections) as closely as I should, I just wanted to jump in here and say that Rob came to my home recently as part of his door-to-door campaigning and seemed very thoughtful and sincere about his interest in improving the community.
Apparently, Papa John’s does (or did). But the results were … not good:

We couldn’t get 2 different meters to accept cc payment in the Short North last week. They still took coins, but it’s annoying because it was freezing and we thought we were doing something wrong. The buttons to increase the time wouldn’t work.
Yup, my husband and I had the exact same thing happen to us on Saturday, Jan. 15 while trying to park in the SN. I looked on the meter to see if it had a phone number for the parking violations dept. (when I’ve faced this prob in other cities, I’ve called in right then and there to make sure I wouldn’t have to worry about a ticket.), but as far as I could tell, it was only marked with a serial number. Aggravating.
My mom loves to shop there and told me about the closing last week. The situation sounds grim, to say the least.
Oh, Phat Wraps is GREAT. The name, however, is terrible indeed.
Not to be contrary, but I wasn’t super-impressed. I found the vegetarian selections lacking (if memory serves, they were one plain grilled cheese and one with veggies); I ended up going with the Hawaiian-style one, minus ham. I was hoping the food would be along the lines of Skillet’s grilled cheese or the fab pear and caramelized onions grilled cheese I’ve had at Bodega; this has decidedly more casual fare, so that may have been part of my disappointment.
That said, the seasoned fries were really good and the service was both friendly and speedy.
Anybody know what happened to this place? The number appears to be disconnected, and 411 doesn’t have a new number listed.
