Thank you, internet friends.
We took a bunch of your suggestions for things to do in Columbus and have had a lovely weekend. →
[More:] Short North yesterday evening for drinks and dinner followed by Jeni's ice cream; German Village and the Book Loft today. Book Loft was amazing and like some sort of Halloween corn maze for bibliophiles.
Internet friends are a good thing. My friend just moved here a couple months ago to start her PhD, so she's new enough to have appreciated the suggestions, too.
