Crew playoffs

You can have your Buckeye gamedays. In my eyes, nothing beats Crew home playoff games in the fall. The two-leg home-and-away series with New England has all the makings of a classic to boot.


Katalina's pop-up in Oddfellows

A great selection from the Katalina's menu (including one of my favorite sandwiches in Columbus, the Mazatlan Pork and Egg) now available in my favorite new Short North bar? Heaven.


Homemade Cincinnati Chili

Nothing is more comforting than a warm bowl of chili on a chilly day. It's like Skyline, but better and way healthier.

Crocheted animal hoods

My friend Catie did an awesome job on my leopard hood for my Halloween costume. It will also be a great winter accessory!


Pappardelle ai Funghi Trifolati at Giuseppe’s Ritrovo

A trio of ’shrooms (cremini, shiitake and porcini) and fresh pasta make for an earthy, delicious fall dish


The Detroit Lions

Winning by f---ing up is the best. Down 21-0 at halftime? No problem! Miss the game- winning field goal as time expires? Don’t worry, a penalty will give us another shot. Go Lions!


Xena Warrior Princess

My neighbors love to hear me practice my Xena battle cry.


Gaff tape

More versatile than duct tape, without any of the mess when you take it off. This is a photographer's best friend.
