Nightcap: Jeni talks recall, Replacements cancel LC show
Need something to get you over the midweek hump? Here are some stories you might have missed and a few things to look forward to on Thursday.
Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams creator Jeni Britton Bauer shares what her experience with the recall was like, as well as what the company's plans are moving forward. Fans will be able to get their Salty Caramel fix soon because the majority of scoop shops reopen on Friday at 7 p.m.
Koble Greek Italian Grill, which opened in February, offers an array of Mediterranean dishes. While the food is good, the fairly new restaurant does have areas that need improvement.
The '80s alternative-rock band was scheduled to play to a sold-out crowd in Columbus, originally slated for May 6, but had to cancel the show due to front man Paul Westerberg falling ill. In a Facebook post, the band apologized for failing to reschedule and said they hope to someday have a make-up show.

6:30 p.m. - The Stand Up for Kids Comedy Happy Hour at Woodlands Tavern

Happy hour is from 6:30 to 8:00 and the show starts at 8:15. Tickets are $21 each and include two happy hour drinks.

7 p.m. - "From Mayerling to Sarajevo"
The Wexner Center for the Arts is showing this rarely screened movie from classic director Max Ophüls. The film follows the love affair of Archduke Franz Ferdinand and Czech Countess Sophie Chotek. Ophüls beautifully follows how the pair overcame disapproval of their relationship and the absurdity of court life. It costs $6 for members, students and seniors and $8 for the general public.
