    Clintonville – does anyone there like change and more options?

    +1 I think there is more than enough people and money in that area to support a high quality grocery. It is also on a High Street bus line so easy access to OSU students.

    I’d be interested in seeing figures for people that tried public transit once or twice and never again. …but the routes were so slow, and the timing so inconvenient I made learning to drive a priority.

    That is how I remember it. I have a similar story.

    I don’t think tourists expect free transit. The group talking to me asked how people hailed cabs in Columbus. They didn’t look too enthused when I told them Basil was a mile up the street. I don’t use COTA much and I was not about to try and explain it to someone else. Since they didn’t know the area I think it would have been a little ambitious, even with google maps on a smartphone.

    I think this rubber tire trolley idea works well with Columbus unique layout of adjoining convention, downtown and Short North hot spots. I am frequently asked how to get from one of these places to another. If it spurs expanded economic activity I think it would be worth it, maybe the business associations could help subsidize it.

    I also used the opportunity to plug the Short North Stage to them. :)

    Was asked by a group of obvious out of towners how to get to Basil in the SN this afternoon from down near the Cap. I told them they could hoof it or call 614-777-7777. It would have been great to mention the ‘distinctive free bus/faux trolley’. :)

    I also can see the value in another small boutique downtown grocery closer to the High St area. Several small ones spread out over downtown would be nice.

    ^ Yes, you could use any Snap Fitness location in the country.

    If you just need the basics they are hard to beat. Most also have personal training available and there are maybe a half dozen Snaps in different parts of the city. I doubt the one in the SN will have free parking (though I don’t know) so living within a mile would be ideal.

    It takes about 15 minutes to walk a mile so that would be a good warm up. Jogging it would be even better. :)

    i wasn’t sure what it would take to make me wish for a french existential theme bar to move in, but yeah, hooka joint will do it.

    Not a whole lot of redeeming qualities to these places. Just when people were beginning to understand how damaging smoking can be. I also heard they were beginning to clean up that corner with the closing of the S&K.

    I know you are looking at a single family house, but you can find a 700sqft condo for just a bit more downtown.

    this is just from a very quick search

    We were in NYC for the holidays and that seemed to be pretty popular. I imagine it won’t be long before it gets here.

    Why are people saying to avoid Franklinton?

    I always wondered why I did not see them in a lot of key locations at certain times like late at night when other restaurants are closed. They really should be allowed to park and vend from the streets.

    I also wonder why there are no food carts at Gallery Hop? It seems like a no-brainer with all of the overflowing traffic looking for a quick bite to eat.

    An old boyfriend clued me into to them. I guess it shows how fleeting the internet can be. Hopefully it will be a couple years before CU ‘goes to print’.
