Deep Dish Dilemma

Inn and Spa at Cedar Falls innatcedarfalls.com By Lesley Jenike Upscale without the pretension, the Inn and Spa at Cedar Falls in Logan is located right in the heart of the Hocking Hills, close to…

Face Value

Let’s keep it real: while a necessary component of a strong civic plan, convention centers aren’t typically the source of excitement in a city. Even in Columbus, where Peter Eisenman’s off-kilter, colorful menagerie of brick…

Fashion: La Vie Boheme

Sometimes, if you wait long enough, the things you dream of wearing will come into the eye of the current season’s fashion. This fall, lovers of vintage and texture will be thanking their lucky style…

The Wild Blue Yonder

Expectations are funny. One would think that after a season in which the Blue Jackets finished third in the conference (they’d never finished higher than seventh before that), tallied 108 points (they’d never recorded more…

Root System

Grilled Eggplant with Pesto & Tahini Yogurt Sauce Cooking eggplant on the grill may have forever changed my perspective on the sometimes-mushy globes. Eggplant parmesan can be greasy or soggy and ratatouille is really all…

Beyond the Bones

Life is short, though I keep this from my children. Life is short, and I’ve shortened mine in a thousand delicious, ill-advised ways, a thousand deliciously ill-advised ways I’ll keep from my children. The world…

Axes Up!

I gave myself the name Ragnar. Joining me for my first experience with the nascent “sport” of axe throwing was Maple, Axe Bomber, and Hoss Funk. Before we were to train with the hefty and sharp…

10 Years Later

Dive-In Theater

Under the surface, it’s quiet. The cool turquoise press of the water slows your movements. Like meditation, you are conscious of every breath. Every motion is methodical: inflate and deflate your vest, keep track of…

Imagine, Imbibe
