    we are moving down the street from joseppi’s,and will have to check this Jack’s place out when we get settled in

    Welcome to the Hood! You must be in Westgate or right by Bishop Ready.

    Jack’s has dollar coneys on Tuesdays and Fridays. He is right on Broad St just west of Hague Ave.

    Dread cleaning the bathroom.

    Love cutting the lawn.

    I was hoping (and in the back of my mind knew) that Jeni’s would have to have something pumpkin. Had the Sunny St. Cafe pancakes today. Not bad. Circleville pumpkin show….I’m already there. Thanks for the suggestions.

    And Jeni’s does. It is Buttercup Pumpkin and Amaretti Cookies. It is simply divine.

    in reply to: The United States of Income Inequality #402290

    In a recent survey, people were asked who was mostly responsible for the current state of the economy. They could choose from any walk of life, from the President, Congress, Jesus, etc, etc. However, the clear winner was the CEOs of large corporations.

    I think what we’re tired of seeing is the CEO who lays off thousands of workers just to get a golden parachute. The CEOs don’t share in any pain when the rest of the company suffers and everyone sees it. It would be very refreshing to see a CEO volunteer to play by the same rules that he or she enforces on others.

    Saigon Palace is the worst restaurant in Columbus! It smells like sewage when you walk in. The walls look like a hoarders episode after cleanup with dirt and mud coating them. When I went, they ahd 4 menu items available. They had no fried rice either! How are you out of fried rice if you have steamed rice?

    I agree. I refused to eat there. However, there are people here who actually liked the place. I just wondered if anyone knew the details on why it was closed.

    in reply to: Restaurants Face Alleged Health Violations #153012

    I just heard that they’re closed. Does anyone have any information on this? Some co-workers at AEP are not happy.

    At least they got the general direction right. They’re good for a total screw up on their direction on a regular basis. They must have cut back on their proof-reading staff…

    Their brand of reporting is sad. Have you ever noticed they usually fail to mention the race of a crime suspect when describing them? Not that it matters in the grand scheme of things, but when you’re trying to accurately describe a suspect, that information usually helps……

    Give Tenzo a break. He is just being descriptive, not creepy.

    Give him credit for calling 911 and not jumping out of his car to “assist.”

    Delaware dumps their do-do in the river, pays the EPA fines, which Columbus happily accepts, and makes the river stinky.
    When that stops, and the damn’s near OSU and Battelle (for the do-do) are removed, it would be a wonderful idea.
    And before anyone asks just google the evidence. I’m not going to be a research librarian on this topic.

    it aint just delaware. everyone dumps their doo in the river, including columbus (for now). Although New Orleans still has boats, so I don’t think it’s a poo problem. and when those damns are gone, the Olen’scrungy is going to be a shallow stream, not a boating river.

    You are correct. Check out the warning sign at Northbank park. It cautions people to stay out of the water due to combined sewer overflows. Isn’t that a great sign to see at a park?

    Too bad for local people losing jobs – will not miss the outlet store! Too many yucky memories of having to buy clothes there as a child.

    OMG. I have the same memories. My memories are more related to my Mom staying there for hours going through what seemed like every rack/bin in the store…..

    word is the Hilliard area building was in poor repair, needed alot of work as the newer location is in very good condition

    I also heard that some bills were going unpaid at this location.

    At an old job of mine we used to get their catered deep-fried macaroni “bricks”. They were SOOOOO good.
    Only ever ate at the Hilliard location itself one time. I wonder if the increased competition in that area played some role. The whole Rome-Hilliard corridor has really exploded over the past 10 years.

    That would be “Pasta Salvi.”

    I think they suffered more from their remote location. To get to them, you had to turn down a side street and the route there was not intuitive at all.

    I thought it closed years ago. I loved when Salvi’s was located in the Brewery District, I used to go all the time, the pasta Salvi is the best!

    No, they had a single location at I70 and Hilliard-Rome Rd.

    BG Salvi’s had several locations at one time, they were a booming chain.

    You are correct. I was referring to the post booming chain era when there was only one location.

    No, they had a single location at I70 and Hilliard-Rome Rd. I guess they have opened a Dublin location, but just closed the Hilliard location a few days ago. You can still get your fix up on Metro Place in Dublin. Pasta Salvi (a brick of deep-fried fettuccini alredo with melted cheese on top)is very good!

    in reply to: Snow Removal Efforts #423301

    Walker wrote >>
    I saw plenty of plows out, both Downtown and elsewhere. They don’t remove 100% all snow though. Plenty of it was either flattened or pushed around by other traffic. Not really something new.
    Leave a little earlier, drive a bit slower, relax, breathe, and you’ll be fine.
    Personally, I’m more annoyed by property owners Downtown who don’t shovel their sidewalks. There needs to be a crackdown on that kind of enforcement.

    West Mound hasn’t been touched. Not even any salt down. I am referring to the section of West Mound that is west of 3C. Last winter, it took 2 days after a major snow to get West Broad in Westgate plowed and salted. I am disturbed with the lack of clearing on the west side of town. Today’s Dispatch said that the City said they would begin clearing residential roads in German and Victorian villages today. I think they should worry about ALL major roads first.
