We hope you had a great time celebrating Columbus’ Brunch scene with us during our first ever Best Bites: Brunch event at the Columbus Athenaeum on Thursday night. Thanks to the wonderful local businesses that partnered with us to make Columbus’s largest “brinner” event happen! Thanks to all our guests who participated in the event, we appreciate your support and enjoyed your company! (You can check out photos from the event, HERE.)

An extra special thank you to the CU team that helped make this event happen: Ashley Brannon, Nancy Colvin, Susan Post, Tyler Wiseman, Rebecca Wagner, Anne and Walker Evans.  I am so lucky to work with such a wonderful group of people who are not only encouraging but also make my work fun! Thank you to all our volunteers: Diana Gryniuk, Sara Austin, Becca Lane and Patrick Moore who helped make this event shine.

You helped us donate $3,000 to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Ohio, and signed congratulatory letters to seniors who will be graduating high school this year from their programs. The Columbus Underground Best Bites event series have collectively raised over $16,000 for local charities since August 2014.

It was so fun to partner with our friends at Crimson Cup Coffee to host the event and hope they kept you caffeinated. You also enjoyed some tasty cocktails from Karate Cowboy and a sampled fresh squeezed orange juice from Kappus Company.

Thanks for all of your support. We love hosting the Best Bites event series and we hope to see you at one of our events in the future!
