    what i would do for some peqouds right now, my stomach is flipping. although i usually answer tommy’s as my favorite pie to rep columbus, pequods is the best ever. giordanos is probably the worst of all the joints in chicago.

    i would recommend tristano’s in grove city for chicago-style pizza, it’s good

    I was just coming here to recommend Tristano’s. Their stuffed pizza is great. They have a nice outdoor seating area that you might want to check out while the weather is still warm.

    I paid $19,600 to purchase a parking spot at the Hartman Building in 2006.

    I’m not sure if you’re interested in areas beyond downtown, but I had a surprise party for my husband’s 30th at Marshall’s in Grandview. I didn’t have to pay anything to rent the party room and I had the party during happy hour on a Friday night, so beers were only $1 a piece. We had a dedicated server and everyone could order their beer through her and it all went on my tab. I also ordered a few pizzas and a veggie tray and they allowed us to bring in our own cake. It was a great party- cheap and low key.

    I’m not sure what the income qualifications are for their services, but the Capital University Law School Legal Clinic helps people (free of charge) with tenant rights issues, among other things:

    https://culsnet.law.capital.edu/LegalClinic/LegalClinic.asp

    “Tenant Rights & Issues: Students provide representation to people facing eviction, needing assistance to assert their right to habitable housing, assistance in recovering their security deposit or defending damage suits. They have the primary responsibility for negotiating with either the opposing party or their counsel and representing their client in the eviction hearing.”

    Dr. Beer at the Care Pet Clinic is an excellent vet and his prices are very reasonable.

    There are other considerations to take into account for raising a pet on a budget. We use pet insurance, but I would only recommend that if you anticipate having a lot of expenses (e.g., surgeries, etc.) because there is a monthly fee. We have come out on top, but I don’t think that would be the case for everyone. Another option would be to use Care Credit, which is essentially a low interest credit card for vet bills (and human medical bills). This can be a good thing to have around for emergency situations.

    Finally, you might want to consider getting an older puppy who has already been through its puppy shots. During the first couple of months of a puppy’s life, they have to visit the vet pretty frequently and get a lot of vaccinations. By adopting a puppy who is already a few months old, you could avoid that high upfront cost.

    I hope this helps!

    You should check out Freshbox Catering. They offer excellent food, prices are reasonable, and they deliver. The best part is that Freshbox has a social mission to help fight poverty and homelessness in Columbus.null

    I was going to give Freshbox a plug as well. But someone beat me to it. So I’ll just go with the more traditional +1.

    +1 for Freshbox Catering. We used them for our work holiday luncheon and we were very happy with the service. The portions were very generous and the ingredients were high quality.

    Wheeler is my fave, completely fenced in & has water, poop bags, & trash cans, and plenty of space for different dogs (and their owners) with different vibes. It’s right behind the Giant Eagle on Neil ave in victorian village.

    +1 for Wheeler Park. We love to take our dog there.

    Kohl’s and JC Penney’s have a wide variety of sizes for men and they always have good deals. They carry some really nice brands, too. My husband is a hard to fit size and I shop at those stores for him. You could also try Nordstrom.

    Smokey Bones has really good soft pretzels. I also really like the jalapeno cheddar pretzel at Auntie Anne’s. However, after reading the other comments, it sound like I may need to venture beyond the chains :-).

    +1 for Dan from Cornerstone. We used him for our home inspection last week after reading this thread. He was very thorough and professional.

    I am trying to rent out my condo in the Hartman Building downtown. Here is a link to my ad:

    Condo Ad

    It is also posted on Craigslist. I know that you said you aren’t looking for something for a couple of months, and my condo may not be available then, but Craigslist is a good source for downtown rentals. The Hartman is a great place to live and there are usually a couple of rentals available.

    If downtown proper isn’t your thing, I second the Grandview recommendation.
