Y'all Come!

I know I always brag about how many cool things are going on in Columbus. Tell me if it's getting old. But seriously, one can never be bored here! Here are a few events coming up for those who enjoy life, food, and gardening:

Nurtur the Salon Makeover Contest - Nominate someone deserving to receive a full makeover at Aveda salon Nurtur in Upper Arlington. I am a judge so I can't nominate or be nominated but I can think of tons of people who deserve special treatment. Entries are low and you only have until January 25th to nominate.

Central Ohio Food Forum meets again on this Monday at Wild Goose Creative for eat by Sassafras Bakery at 5:30 and discussion at 6:30 pm.

Trio of Trucks class - Hills Market is holding a class with cooks from Hot Pita, Pitabilities, and Kolache Republic this coming Tuesday at 6:30 pm. An hour of instruction plus 3 courses and beer for just $25? I secured my ticket today! Call 614.846.3220 to do the same. Fresh Street Festival pop-up - FreshStreet and Section 8 Yakitorium are two of my favorite restaurants in town because they serve absolutely unique food. James Beard chef Jonathon Sawyer agrees and he invited the Fresh Street team to come up to Cleveland for a one-night-only restaurant. I am thrilled to be heading up there to work the yakitori grill with them on February 2. Tickets to the event, which include Thunderkiss coffee, crepes, yakitori, and more, are only $42 and selling fast. Find all the details and order tickets online. Art in the Garden - Local Matters is hosting an amazing series of gardening workshops starting with Art in the Garden Jan. 21st from 12-2pm at Godman Guild. Are you interested in adding some art to your gardens? Join talented local artists, Melissa Vogley Woods and Elena Harvey Collins and start your projects, meet other growers/artists and share a delicious lunch. RSVP to these free events to Trish@local-matters.org.
