Chill out, dude. Enough with all of the angriness/aggressiveness lately.
Let’s look at some of the things this woman has been called in this thread:
drug induced maniac
A walking pharmacy
privileged pill junkie
But FSonic is too angry and aggressive for a mild slam on a local high school?
Way too much schadenfreude up in here.
Here’s the Ale House draft list from their web site. I picture that scene from the Simpson’s when Homer tours the duff brewery and all the duff varieties flow from the same pipe. Also, as a proud pedant, I have to point out this so-called ale house has a lot of lager but very little ale.
Blue Moon Belgian White
Blue Moon Seasonal
Dos Equis Lager
Goose Island 312
Goose Island Honkers
Long Hammer IPA
Michelob Amber Bock
Newcastle Brown Ale
Rogue Dead Guy
Samuel Adams Boston Lager
Samuel Adams Seasonal
Sea Dog Blue Paw
Shipyard Export Ale
… and many more regional favorites!”
ETA: Hofbrauhaus wins almost by default.

And there it goes:
There is a slide show with the article. It’s funny that none of the pics in this article or any of the other articles show the ugly, run-down addition that was on the back of the house.November 11, 2013 7:51 pm at 7:51 pm in reply to: 192 year old UA house in danger of being demolished #554143
Here’s the follow-up, from the Dispatch:
“The Upper Arlington Historical Society determined over the weekend that it would be impractical, or impossible, to move the 192-year-old stone house on Riverside Drive and save it from demolition.”
“The stone house is too fragile to be moved and little original is left inside to salvage.”November 8, 2013 7:20 pm at 7:20 pm in reply to: 192 year old UA house in danger of being demolished #554127
You know, I think in the grand scheme of things, it would be a net positive for the universe if this house is saved.
But this house is 192 years old and nobody cared about it until exactly one day before demolition. Every entity in the position to save the house has dropped the ball for literally generations.
The UA historical society isn’t offering money. The City of UA doesn’t want to pay. The only group being asked to give anything up is the big bad developer.November 8, 2013 6:47 pm at 6:47 pm in reply to: 192 year old UA house in danger of being demolished #554124
Well, per the article the developer paid about $260k. That is certainly not chump change, but it seems like an attainable amount especially in a city with the size and means of Upper Arlington.November 8, 2013 6:16 pm at 6:16 pm in reply to: 192 year old UA house in danger of being demolished #554122

Developers are in business to make money, they don’t really care about the community unless it affects their business somehow.
Sounds like the community didn’t care about the house either until the developer came along.
Like a little kid that couldn’t care less about a toy until he sees his little sister playing with it.

If you want to oversimplify it, sure.
In my experience, literally every single person, on their first trip to Piada, looks around and exclaims, “This is just like Chipotle!”
Also, conversations about Piada with people who haven’t been there always go like this:
Person 1: “I’ve never been to Piada, what’s it like?”
Person 2: “It’s basically an Italian Chipotle. I like it/don’t like it.”

Sub-forums, maybe? “General talk”, “upcoming events”, “metaphysics of the universe” and so on.
Lame. The walled-garden approach should’ve died with AOL.
the last movie was so long, predictable, cliché, and frankly, quite dull that I only finished watching it out of a sense of obligation. I can’t see how people can really get this worked up about ben afleck. It’s not going to get any WORSE.
Sorry, unpopular opinion here, but its my 2cents.
I agree with you, too. In my opinion, the first Burton movie and the second Nolan movie were good, but all the rest were pretty dismal.
The 90s cartoon was mostly good, as well.
To replace a stadium that’s 14 years old? Sounds like this may be 10+ years down the road, if it’s in the plans at all.
ToddAnders lays it out over here:
I have no first-hand knowledge. I will say, however, that if ever there was a 14 year old stadium to replace, this is it. While cutting-edge at the time, all the new stadiums in MLS make our stadium look laughably rinky-dink by comparison.
Anyway, the good news is there is hope for the beleaguered former casino site after all.
We’re having enough trouble building up enough of a critical mass for 24 hour urban walkable environment downtown. Heck the old downtown site will probably sit empty for the next 5 to 10 years and it’s a 10 min walk from the arena.
The rumor is that the Columbus Crew will be building a new stadium in the arena district, possibly at the old casino site (disclaimer: I read this on the internet – may or may not be true). Although, you’re right, the lead time on that is 5-10 years on the low end.
