Things Jackie Mantey Loves

Staff Writer
Columbus Alive

As Alive's newest reporter, Jackie covers style and the arts. Her hazing involved bringing doughnuts to her first staff meeting. The shame.


My adoration was solidified after seeing their stylistic range in "American Legends." I am psyched for "7 Deadly Sins."

Caffe Apropos

Great coffee, sandwiches and atmosphere. I raid their stock of Mad Housewife wine to use as gag gifts for girl friends who are getting married.

Highbanks Metro Park

I'm a farmer's daughter, so often I crave height from trees, not buildings. The trails are the perfect length for a hike after work.

Chuck Klosterman

I appreciate his unpretentious social commentary, but really any professional pop-culture writer who proclaims his love of Kiss is deserving of a thumbs-up.

The red panda at the Columbus Zoo

This little buddy melts my stone-cold heart every time.
