Eat, Drink and Watch Football

17 Sep

Early autumn leaves. Jenny Rogers.

Ah, hello again, Monday. I certainly hope everyone’s week is off to a good start. As we all know by now, I have been missing in action, as they say, on many fronts. Including Kick-Start, my mini-guide to Columbus happenings for the week (as I see them, of course). So, let’s get back to calendar-marking, shall we?

Kick-Start: What to look forward to this week.

Columbus Young Professionals knows you probably already need a drink, and so they’ve acted accordingly. Head to their South American-themed wine tasting tomorrow at Camelot Cellars Winery in the Short North.

Do you like pizza? Are you a non-allergic human being? Thought so. Slice of Columbus is happening on Wednesday at the Columbus Commons, and boy am I sad to be missing it. This event was one of my first social outings upon moving back to the ‘Bus last year, and it was, in a word, amazing. And this year will probably be even better, as the new location has wayyy more space for pizza consumption than Huntington Park. Cheers, cheese lovers.

For all you snobs, BalletMet’s The American Songbook opens on Friday (and runs through October 7). And for one of the best ballet companies in the region, admission prices aren’t all that steep, with tickets starting at just $20.

Also on Friday is a screening of The Sound of Music at Goodale Park. The flick begins at sundown (ugh, so early now), and is preceded by a half hour of cartoons… if you’re into that. Oh! And it’s free.

Hang out at the museum after hours – and for a good cause – during Art for Life at the Columbus Museum of Art. This annual event raises funds for AIDS Resource Center Ohio, and includes an art auction and plenty of great food and drink for those that didn’t get their fill at the wine tasting and pizza-stuffing contest.

Oh, and of course… Buckeye football.


– Yours in trying to live for more than the weekends
