Small Talk: Letters and Chatter about Columbus Monthly, August 2015 Edition

Columbus Monthly Staff
Columbus Children's Theatre

We'll be honest: We love the love mail we see after every year's Best of Columbus issue (July 2015), because it's all about you celebrating you. Cameron Mitchell Restaurants shared the news about Best of Columbus wins on social media, writing, "Four of our restaurants were voted winners in @ColumbusMonthly's 'Best of Columbus.' Congrats to Cap City, Marcella's, M and The Guild House."

Yoga on High took to Instagram to tell its followers, "We are so happy to announce that we won the award for Top Yoga Studio in @ColumbusMonthly! Thanks to each and every one of you who makes up a part of this vibrant community!" Columbus Crew SC, which we celebrated for its new branding and attitude, tweeted, "Thanks to you guys, @ColumbusMonthly says we have the 'Best New Attitude' in town!" Supporter Skeebolt replied, "Crew should be best of Columbus forever, for all time."

Aaron Pitcock, who's involved with organizing Independents' Day Festival, wrote: "Humbled to be part of the @CbusIDfest team just named the most Columbus-Proud Festival by @ColumbusMonthly!"

From @Fake_Dispatch, whom we declared one of the best Twitter accounts in Columbus: "Twitter is not a contest, but I won anyways." And from Fake Urban Meyer, another twerp: "Flattered my silly account has been recognized as among the best in Columbus by @ColumbusMonthly. Thank you."

We also love the rebels: "Best of Columbus 2015: Readers' Picks via @Columbus Monthly. BEST BRUNCH NOT NORTHSTAR," wrote @ShadyWadeyyy, aka Wade Daniels.


A photo in our Best of Columbus story was erroneously identified as a moment from a Columbus Children's Theatre play. The photo was actually taken at a staging of "Korczak's Children," produced by the Gallery Players at The Jewish Community Center of Greater Columbus. We ran the photo by way of celebrating Columbus Children's Theatre as a Best of Columbus pick. " 'Korczak's Children,' part of Gallery Players' 66th season, was an important play, an excellent production (yes, definitely worthy of a BEST) and had a strong impact on the hundreds of children and adults who witnessed it," wrote Laurie Alexander, who directed the play and is a committee member of Gallery Players. We regret the error.
