Hibernation is for Losers

What’s Daft Punk got to do with January? Read on. Image via.

The Cap City is a great place to live. There’s no doubt. But I think we can all agree that January tends to be a little… dull… no matter where you live. For me personally, I’m in party mode from the first days of Halloween-costume prep until the wee hours after the ball drops, and so the long days of the year’s first month can be a bit melancholy.

Solution: things to do. And so I’m sharing with you, pals, some of Columbus’s January highlights.

The World’s Toughest Rodeo comes to town on January 12. They wouldn’t lie about being the world’s toughest, right? Right?

The Wex is showing a lot of great films this month. Don’t believe me? Check it out.

Are you talented? No? Are you delusional? Great! Casting for America’s Got Talent will take place at the Convention Center on January 19 and 20! The people-watching alone might be worth it… (Also, AGT: hire a new web designer, stat! Good grief that’s an ugly site).

Restaurant Week! Enough said. Eat. Up.

I can’t stand Morrissey, but I know a lot of people feel otherwise. Enjoy you crazy kids! He’s at the LC on January 22.

I’m honestly not sure what to make of this but… a tribute to Daft Punk? I’m too intrigued not to be into this. January 28 at the Newport.

OK… so it’s not really a Columbus highlight… but for all my Matthew Crowley lovahs: Downton returns on January 6!

None of these goings-on catch your interest? May I suggest: drinks at Double Happinesskaraoke at Mickeysa food tour of the North Marketa late-night meal at Tip Topreliving childhood memories at COSIa snowy photo outing in German Villagea dance party with good friends at Park Street Tavern.

Jenny, Your Envy is Showing.

Sam Taylor-Wood is partially my hero, partially someone of whom I am very, very envious. Why? The above picture, of course. This photo, and more, were part of Bullet Mag’s fall 2012 Romance Issue — of course. I mean…

In all seriousness, all of the photos from this issue (including shots of Elizabeth Olsen) are gorgeously great.

Baseball, Bacon & Blues

I love late-summer evenings.

And with the amount of autumn-focused posts I have planned, you’d think the theme of HJR was “weather.” I know, I know. It’s soooo cliche this time of year to hear about how “nice it’s been outside.” But the thing is, I’m infatuated with this time of year. Sure, the days are getting shorter, but the crisp air is definitely welcomeafter the summer we’ve had. I won’t put all my apples (get it? because they’re seasonal?) in the fall basket just yet, but I will admit that I’m super excited.

So, what else is there to be excited about?

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

We don’t have a huge professional sports scene in Columbus, but we do have serious rivalries. Check out the baseball variety on Wednesday, Thursday & Friday when the Clips take on the T-Town Mud Hens. Penny pinching? Tickets start at just 12 bones.

Crafty? Obsessed with pinning DIY projects that you’ll probably never get around to? Check out Etsy Team Columbus’ annual craft party on Friday. It’s free!

Catch some fashion flicks at the Columbus Museum of Art this weekend, when they host the Kleibacker Film Fest. Friday’s film is Bill Cunningham New York (su-freaking-purb), Saturday’s film is The September Issue, and Sunday’s film is Secret World of Haute Couture.

Hungry? Thirsty? Feel like partying? The Columbus Food Truck Fest takes place at the Ohio Historical Center on Saturday and Sunday; BaconCamp Columbus is happening on Saturday; and Summer Beerfest will be raging on Saturday night. Cheers!

Fan of Dr. House? Hugh Laurie and the Copper Bottom Band take the stage at the LC on Sunday.
