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.
Talk about a Foodie Wasteland…the food at the Zoo was boring, overpriced, and unappealing.
Of course the food will be overpriced: they have you and they’re going to squeeze some extra money out of you while you’re there. Hey, it’s capitalism…the American way. And I’m all for it. I knew we’d pay a little more, but I didn’t want the hassle of hitting a local grocery, packing up and dragging a cooler around.
Yes, Daniel, it’s a chain. But it’s a non-local chain. Does that redeem the review even a little bit?
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.
