April 27th. My brother-in-law and now, sister-in-law’s big day in Columbus. An absolutely breathtaking, perfect wedding. The bride chose the best and most useful bridesmaids’ gifts (Vera Bradley bags filled with things we may need on the big day, pictured below) and the cutest bridesmaids’ robes.
615 N HIGH STREET
A Short North happy hour staple. Take note: Marcella’s happy hour is Monday – Friday from 4-6pm and is ridiculously affordable and delectable. It includes half-price pizza ($6-7), salads ($3-4), appetizers ($4-6), small plates ($2-4), and select beers and wine.
JENI’S SPLENDID ICE CREAMS
714 N HIGH STREET
I am an ice cream connoisseur. Yep, sure am. I tend to eat local ice cream (well, besides the occasional DQ) – the summer I lived in Vermont, I had a ton of Ben & Jerry’s. Living in Columbus, my go-to is Jeni’s. Her shops and flavors are creative, visually-appealing, and extremely well-marketed.
Flower Child is a vintage-lover’s dream. Nestled in the Short North. Plethora of clothes, accessories, housewares, and furniture from the 1930’s-1980’s. Many rooms – each decorated to a different theme/time period. Very organized (which I love). A lot of vendors. Price range to fit your budget. Great place to go for unique gifts.
SCHMIDT’S SAUSAGE HAUS
240 E KOSSUTH ST
Schmidt’s oozes with history. Featured on the Travel Channel and Food Network, the authentic German restaurant began as a food stand at the Ohio State Fair. My pictures show everything in the “Schmidt’s area” on Kossuth Street, but the restaurant is where IT’s at.
