    That’s the problem in a nutshell. What about the kids are whose parents aren’t with it enough to send them to the charter school? And what’s going to happen to the kids in a neighborhood that have to continue to attend a failing school? This whole thing just going to make a two-tier educational system and a new permanent underclass. My take is fix all the schools or don’t bother.

    If/when they expand to OSU, I’m assuming Lennox would be included in those plans.

    What makes this more problematic is that Lennox is in Clinton Township which is not Columbus (not to mention that the center itself is private property).

    I can’t say I have ever had a bad fresh donut. Fresh being the kicker. Even the best bakeries can ruin the experience by serving a stale product. This comes to mind with a recent purchase of a $3 donut that I had been lusting.

    Critical restaurant reviews are getting few and far between. A reading of the menu with associated food porn seems to be the norm now. Unfortunately, if that had been a more obscure local restaurant instead of a chain most people would not have batted an eye. In general it feels like we are slacking off in our expectations.

    I feel naive but I am wondering if you can taste and drink the beer there before you buy like you can the wine at House Wine? I am not really familiar with how these new growler carryouts work.

    I would get the 5c if the no contract price is affordable enough. I have had enough plastic phones that this wouldn’t bother me in the least.

    Not much of an upgrade then, imho.

    Yeah, more indoor seating for the colder months. If it is still available they should look at the closed pizza place across the street from the Grandview library.

    The quality of the Sparano’s by bono was really hit or miss. I think the woman running the ship at that branch didn’t care and it showed.

    Interesting comments Rory. I wonder why they couldn’t or didn’t move. Did the recession play into that?

    I understand that even at its worst High St was still the main street in Columbus and still got exposure. That and the cheap rents of the ready made (though run down) small spaces worked out perfectly. I assume if the Franklinton Arts District ever takes off that there will be some galleries over there. They would probably need to be new builds. I also wondered if people are now conditioned to want wine and cheese, shopping and bars mixed in with their art?

    A TJ’s downtown or in the Clintonville area would get so much business. Brewery District Kroger can haradly keep produce stocked some weekends. Nice as the downtown Hills market is, I don’t think it’s really made a huge dent in the market. I know plenty of folks in GV/downtown and Clintonville that regularly make the drive to Easton just for TJ’s.

    Clintonville would need to adjust to Lucky’s first but I can see a Trader Joes working out in the VV Giant Eagle. I would call Trader Joe’s and Hills fairly different in many ways. IMHO, they appeal to different types of shoppers.

    What’s confusing about it?

    Confusing in a ‘why’ sort of way. It seemed to our group that the menu was all over the place in an almost random manner and they were out of various ingredients for some of the dishes. I don’t mind eclectic, but maybe a less convoluted menu would smooth things out?

    I will have to tell my brother about this. I love the Apple Store but he is staunchly entrenched in Windows gadgets.
