    Just went through this myself… PNC was SUPER easy to get Euros (took 3 business days I believe) with no fees. They also offer a few free ATM withdraws from other banks each month,so I saved those for when I was overseas and again got other currency with no fees.
    They also took back my extra currency when I got home, but no coins- so treat yourself to something nice in the airport on your way home.

    Was at La Tavola in Grandview for dinner last week and their gelato was awesome- I think they said it was made by a family friend of the owners.

    I think its pretty simple… parents today don’t seem to want their kids to grow up (helicopter parents??) and are afraid for them, so they aren’t pushing independence.
    Why get a license and pay for gas, insurance, ect when mom will just drop you off and pick you up whenever you want?
    Probably similar to younger kids getting bikes. It meant freedom when I was young, today I’m sure you would be shunned if you let your kid ride around the neighborhood alone all afternoon.

    Its a great day in the neighborhood! It also looked like the trophy shop and whatever else is in the plaza next door might be closing up shop.
    I’m shocked there haven’t been any 5XNW/ Grandview/ Columbus comments on this thread… but not sad to not to see them :)

    Totally agree SJT! The employees there have always been very helpful and friendly.
    Was in last night to see what kind of clearance was going on- pretty sure you could get things cheaper at other Macy’s during one of their many “One Day Sales”… they’ll need to drop the prices again to move anything. Still tons of merchandise.

    Agree! I much prefer Lyft drivers- I hope this “pause” is short because I’ll be damned if I get in a cab anytime in the near future…

    I’ll cover the “girly” stuff:
    Yoga- Go Yoga in UA (just a minute from Grandview on Arlington Ave.) has some great instructors and is reasonably priced.
    Nails- SoPo in UA (also just up Northwest from Grandview) is my spot now- good prices and quality work plus no waiting around forever like at some of the places on 5th Ave. Elli is also a good spot, but a little more $$
    Hair- Nurtur in Grandview or UA. They have a range of experienced stylists so you can pick what level/ price you want. You also get a mini facial with your haircut/ color. Bonus!
    Gyms- already good suggestions in previous posts- Go on King is a nice, small, community gym. Some of their classes are great, and they also have options for small group training at an affordable rate- also a great place to meet people that live in the neighborhood!

    Welcome to town!

    The name and location fooled me. I thought this was in Dublin’s jurisdiction.

    A better name for the area might be 161st by Northeast Industrial Parkway.

    Or 161xNIP for short. ;)

    Oh Walker- you’re taking me back to the passionate arguments of the Pizza Crawl thread HA!

    Giant Eagle has a bad habit of not letting tenants go into their old locations… happened in Canton, where I grew up, which lead to run down strip centers. Hope that doesn’t happen in Grandview- would hate to have a whole block just sitting empty!

    Hey all – I’m totally new here (to the forums and the thread), but I figured I’d pop in and ask some advice. I’m taking a trip to Kentucky this weekend, and was wondering if anyone had suggestions for some available-only-in-Kentucky bourbons I should pick up while I’m down there. I have a short list going – Weller/BT products, Old Fitz, Larceny, Very Old Barton – but I’d love to hear any suggestions outside of those. Thanks!

    Hello all, I’m new to this thread as well. I was recently in KY and picked up a bottle of Rowan’s Creek ($35ish). It’s a 12 year old small batch made by KBD that (I was told) is not available in OH and came highly recommended by the salesman I spoke to. I’m really enjoying it. Another one he recommended was Noah’s Creek which is a 15 year old also made by KBD, but it was a little too pricey for me ($50+ I think). I’m a relative bourbon newbie and was a bit intimidated and in awe of the selection in KY!

    My first passion is craft beer, but I’m now expanding my appreciation of bourbon and definitely see some similarities between the two drinks in terms of flavor variety, styles, hard to find limited releases, etc. Fun stuff.

    Was just down in KY last weekend and visited Willett distillery in Bardstown– they produce Rowan Creek and Noah’s Creek- super small craft place. Their Johnny Drum is also really nice, especially for $25. We can’t buy them in Ohio, but you CAN purchase online thru Liquor Barn, just an FYI :) You’ll prob end up spending too much time looking at all the goodies they have!

    Agree Dystropia— cabs rarely actually show up, then the drivers are rude, have crappy cars, and try to drive you out of the way to make more money. Latest trick is saying they have “no change” trying to get bigger tips. No thanks.
    The convenience and ease of Uber is worth the few extra bucks.
    The comment from the Yellow Cab associate in that Dispatch article was laughable.

    Did this place ever open? I was at the Library yesterday and it looked to be almost open/ or open but I haven’t heard a peep about it!
