Holiday Celebrating (with kids) at Barcelona in German Village!

I will tell you that, before last week, I have never once thought that it might be a good idea to take our kids to dinner at one of German Village’s finest restaurants, Barcelona Restaurant & Bar. It’s just not one of the first places that comes to mind when I think of ‘kid-friendly’ [...]

Pat & Gracie’s: Our Newest Reason to Visit Clintonville

If you’ve had the pleasure of visiting Clintonville, you know that it’s packed with adorable shops, restaurants and gastro-pubs. It’s the perfect place to visit if you’re in need of a really good meal or a refreshing craft beer, and the neighborhood is filled with young families making it an extremely kid-friendly spot (bonus!).   [...]

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 [...]

This year-round event takes place from 8 a.m. - 12 p.m.  on North High Street (May - October) -- and moves to the The Shops at Worthington Place during the winter months (November - [...]

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 [...]

Carsonie’s

If you venture to Lane Avenue in Upper Arlington (next to The Shops on Lane Avenue), you’ll come across a local Italian favorite called Carsonie’s. The atmosphere is bustling and the energy throughout the restaurant is exciting and fast-paced. When you walk in, you feel as though you joined a big Italian family party, [...]

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 [...]
