Food, Food Everywhere But Not a Bite to Eat – Columbus Zoo

Susan says…

My family enjoyed a weekend in Columbus over the Independence Day holiday weekend.  Our activities included some shopping at Easton Town Center, an afternoon at COSI, and a day at the Zoo.

Ron and I spent Valentine’s weekend in Columbus, Ohio at Easton Town Center.  We have built a lot of history at this place.  I bought my first Brighton set at Easton.  I bought my first pair of True Religion jeans at Nordstrom.  Hope once ate a hot fudge sundae as big as her head at the Cheesecake Factory.  We have spent hours playing skee ball at Gameworks. I fell in love with Two Three-Buck Chuck at Trader Joe’s.  Most of Ron’s history at Easton, however, involves Adobe Gilas and their happy hour specials.

We enjoyed our first meal on a trip like this at Brio Tuscan Grille, a fine eatery.  Fado’s Irish Pub was a great place to enjoy Guiness wings, a Smithwick’s and a Glenlivet.  California Pizza Kitchen serves up a tasty pizza and the Cheesecake Factory is one of my favorite chains of all time.  But on this special occasion, I wanted to try something new.  Something Asian.  PF Changs.
