    Thank God! I was so tired of explaining to people that it was supposed to be a form of art. It just made the neighborhood look like a ghetto to visitors.

    now you can explain to them why there is a field of weeds and broken concrete.

    The way it was explained to me: business owners in the Short North are complaining about the murals. It sounds like the complaints came from the Short North Business Association and has nothing to do with recent development plans.

    we have at&t dsl. i would not recommend it. the signal is extremely unreliable, drops out several times a day, and requires a re-start a couple times a week. i hate it. that said, had TW prior and although the signal didn’t drop as often, it still required restarts every so often.

    It looks like the cherry tree is giggling from being tickled…

    I put down a bunch of stuff in containers yesterday. Basil, peppers, and shiso did really well the past couple years so I repeated those. And since tomatoes have never done really well for me, I cut down to only one sun gold. A couple new things: two types of kale (dinosaur and red russian) and purple rain (a very productive yet compact eggplant). I’m excited to see how this growing season turns out!

    So, if there are no inclement weather days between now and 60 weekdays, the fountain would only be completed after Comfest (June 24, 25, and 26), and after Pride (July 4th), and right around the first Goodale Park Music Series.

    Somehow the prospect of stagnant water and lack of insect larvae eating fish is making the park seem really unappealing.

    i didn’t have a car for two years and relied heavily on COTA. having moved from nyc, it was really nice not having to worry about finding a DD or moving my car, or anything related to cars and drinking. however, even living in the arena district, downtown, and short north areas, i still much prefer the option of having a car at my disposal whenever i needed. i wonder if there are new zipcar type programs that your friend might make use of?

    in reply to: Hanging Out at the Grocery Store: Yea or Nay? #434513

    The closest I ever come to “hanging out” in a grocery store are for the large Asian groceries out on the coasts. They seem to hit the trifecta between quick food, quality, and low costs (oh, and variety too). For example, Ranch 99s have a dim sum station, a Cantonese BBQ station, a stir fry steam table, and noodle soup station (with Cantonese, Taiwanese, Vietnamese, and Japanese options). And it’s pretty much mobbed at any time of day.

    Seems like whenever I go to the Brewer’s Yard Kroger or Market District, I never see anyone in their dining areas. Tho, Whole Foods always seem to have diners.

    I’m really disappointed CAM doesn’t have plans for a made-to-order prepared foods section for their dining area.

    Pork bun was goooooood. I actually think I could go and just eat pork buns. And maybe some dumplings of any variety.

    @DavidF You should NEVER EVER have to eat frozen bbq pork buns! Go to Golden Delight Bakery[/url]. :o)

    To my knowledge, Fudha certificates may be applied to liquor but the state of Ohio does not permit liquor to be discounted after 9pm. Regardless of what the restrictions are on Fudhas in general, the Jury Room is bound by state law. There may be some legal gray area if the Fudha is considered a “coupon” or “gift certificate” but either way, there was a “discount,” and thus, could not be applied to the liquor after 9pm.

    For all the folks who are taking home whole pies, don’t forget that there is one, and only one way, to reheat pizza. It can be found here.

    This is what meal planning is for. So you can take advantage of when Pearl Market is open and plan the week accordingly. Also, the farmers market at North Market is awesome and easily walkable. And actually, North Market isn’t expensive for the quality of products.
