Afternoon Break at Dough Mama

When you’re four years old and you have a mid-day doctor’s appointment (and you’re REALLY good during it), you probably deserve a special treat :) At least that was our excuse to finally check out the popular bakery and cafe called Dough Mama, located in Clintonville on High Street.  Let me just say, how [...]

Short North Date Night: The Table, Brothers Drake Meadery & Service Bar

There are those weeks when we just have to have a night out without the kids. I promise that I love them very much, but time away is sometimes much needed, especially during the long winter months of being cooped up in the house. So, when my husband and I discovered that three of [...]

Family night out at J. Liu in Worthington

I’m embarrassed to admit that it’s been quite a while since we’ve taken the kids out to dinner. Our warm, sunny days have now been traded out with quite chilly, rainy ones, it’s November in Ohio, and we’re just more likely to sit on the couch these days rather than venture out on the [...]

Z Cucina

My first encounter with Z Cucina in Dublin (Bridgepark) was very hurried and quite honestly, pretty unexpected. I actually had plans to meet friends at another restaurant in the area. I was literally running down the sidewalk with my one-year-old as it was the middle of February, and we were both absolutely freezing. I [...]

Christmas in July

Who says that you can only celebrate Christmas once a year? If you venture into Worthington Hills (our fantastic neighborhood) mid-summer, you’ll quickly learn that this is not the case. Every July (for almost 10 years now), my husband and I have thrown the BEST Christmas in July party. This party is no joke [...]

The Rossi

My husband and I have always been lovers of The Rossi, a trendy yet comfortable (burger joint) on the corner of High Street and – in the Short North. We used to frequent it much more than I would like to admit, but since our two kiddos came along, we’ve had to take a [...]

Wine Tasting (at home!)

Who says you have to spend a night on the town to have a fun, exciting evening? My husband and I have found that although we certainly love taking the kiddos out to explore a new restaurant or even enjoy a date night every so often, we can make the best out of a [...]

Kraft House No. 5

If you make your way to the corner of Powell and Liberty Road in downtown Powell, you’ll find Kraft House No. 5, a charming little tavern that’s made itself known for locally sourced ingredients, crafty cocktails and a fairly hefty bourbon list. What you might not know is that you don’t necessarily have to [...]

Old Skool

If you venture near the High Street/Crestview intersection in the charming  Clintonville neighborhood, you’ll stumble upon a little, hidden gem that you may overlook if not for the bright, blue awning beckoning you inside. Old Skool, which prides itself on BBQ, burgers and beer, is the perfect stop if you and your family are [...]
