Since you’ve never been before, I encourage you to read the ‘sneaking beer in’ thread and to try a fishboat.
Have been before. Scanned that thread…amazed it went as far as it did.
“Though many people bring dogs along, the crowds and loud weather make it uncomfortable for most pets.”
Loud weather? Not sure if they intended to say hot weather or loud music. I wish the author would have added “irresponsible” to describe people who bring pets to the ComFest.
I suppose it might be irresponsible to sit in front of loudspeaker stacks with your dogs…actually its probably bad for the both of you. Probably irresponsible to pull your dog through a tight crowd of people…paws might get crunched or run over by a mega stroller. In our experience weather is manageable, for both you and the dog. This is all understood by many people who own pets that like to socialize.
I find it irresponsible to leave our dog alone at home for extended periods. Especially a dog that you can tell really enjoys being social. If he was a prick around people I’d find other options, but saying it’s irresponsible to bring a dog to a park (ComFest) in general is asinine. There’s plenty of space and plenty of shade for everyone. So, don’t get your panties all in a bunch when you see a dog at ComFest enjoying the outside and wonderful spaces that the City has created for everyone that lives here.
Went there a couple times when it opened and just the other day we were thinking how interesting it was that graffiti burger was still open.
I guess this corner of south Clintonville is a hard sell. Maybe it’s too much on the line of identity between Olde Northe and C-Ville. Probably a giant paved parking lot for food trucks would work, aren’t they supposed to save the world?
How about a Columbus Underground Discussion Lounge Coffee Shop – Clintonville Division. Then we could all sit and hammer it out face to face over coffee….no dildos required.
We have enough boutique, coffee shop, granola, vegan, craft, ice cream, tattoo, hookah, old people bitching places, and empty lot spaces in C-Ville. Of course I’m biased, but a nice brewpub….rusty bucket, maybe press grill-esque…that’s open late with food place would be great. A place more for the masses to get a little bit of draw from other parts of the city? Maybe one of the million new micro brewers can snatch it up?
Sure, I saw that but maybe I should have posted this link…..they are asking for public input at the bottom of their page.
Speak for yourself. There’s plenty of people all over this city who strive to make it a better place every single day.
Discounting their efforts is insulting at worst, oblivious at best.
Well, drats, I’d hate for my sarcastic opinions to be insulting. Fortunately, I wasn’t discounting efforts of the individual ‘people’, just the constant stamping of the uninspiring design aesthetic over and over. Kudos to them, they will keep doing it their way and I will continue to do it my way. It won’t bother me to not see my face on the landing page of CU.
Perhaps I’m thinking micro versus macro but that’s how I view the world of Columbus…WE all see the details on a daily basis. However, I’m not oblivious to the lack of creativity by the city to bring world class to us. Everywhere I turn I see the same aesthetic all over downtown…we all know who controls that design and it’s getting old. But again, opinions are like what?
You’ve obviously not been here long enough, then. We Columbusillian’s love mediocrity and will stop at nothing to keep it that way. We only want pure capitalists to develop our city and we only want the same bland planning and design firms to place their uncreative stamps where we say it. We don’t like competitions and demand that no outside sources of creativity pass through our walls and try to offer us world class design/thoughts/places/programs/bridges/landscapes/buildings….
So, how do we do what you’re asking? I don’t know yet but i just felt like getting that one off my chest this morning.
Construction on the trail should be finishing in the next couple of weeks with more planting and the lasts bits of fencing and signage. Currently it will temporarily stop at Goodale street. The trail at the north end continues on street into the Harrison West area. This trail was developed as a connector for the Harrison west and surrounding neighborhoods. There will be plenty more trail development in this area in the coming months and years…this looks to be just the start.
I’d commute downtown from clintonville by bike quite a bit if my employer or the city provided showers. About the only time of year I can bike commute is the fall without turning into a sweatball.
Great! More crap in the way on the sidewalk. Columbus is horrible for signage, posts, boxes, bus shelters, and miscellania obstructions on the sidewalk.
