Will they let us tour the stadium? Are any practices open to the public?
How is the Columbus Zoo?
I don't know about the first couple things, but students will probably be moving in that weekend.
The Columbus zoo is one of the best in the country. How long are you staying? Assuming you have kids? If so, COSI would be good to visit.
Can't answer first two questions, but the zoo is really nice.
Wear UCF T-shirt’s. You’ll be the center of attention everywhere you go.
Or at least that was my experience in Columbus.
If you're a baseball fan at all our triple A park has won best ballpark like 10 years running in some publication or another, always a good time there
Columbus Zoo is ridiculous holy #### , you need like 2 days to go through and see everything. Dont know where Columbus zoo ranks but damn they have to be up there.
Akron zoo is cool too....very small and in the ghetto but it's cool.
Cleveland metroparks zoo is great too.
Yeah their zoo is pretty badass. Ive been up to it a couple of times over the years.
What was the bet you lost?
Pro tip: get a tattoo. Hear they're mighty cheap there.
not if you don't have golden pants, they're not
Head down to High street and wear Ma**e and Bl** and yell "Hail!" all the time. You should pick up some new friends quickly.
The Zoo and COSI are recommended. Was just at COSI when we wen to CBus for Red-White and Boom.
We’re taking the kids to Cedar Pointe then going to visit my sister in Columbus. I went to the Michigan game there in 2006, but my son hasn’t been and wanted to check out the Shoe.
I've heard that Demon Drop there is no joke, assuming it's still running.
So, they do offer tours for a fee, but this says you need 2 weeks notice.
You could just walk around it, and hope there is an open gate.
Or come back and go to a game! Just sayin'.
It is a sweet place, no doubt! Just sucks they're not the Yanks 3A team anymore, lol!
The original moved, but the 'new' one is wicked!
I would advise against eating at an OUTBACK.
I wish I would've spent an extra day up there and gone to the zoo. It looks amazing.
OP, how old are your kids? Once a month on a Sunday (not sure which week), kids can go to 16 Bit, which is a barcade, where all the games, other than pinball, are free. There's a good pizza place next door that you can bring in for lunch, too.
If you like to explore neighborhoods, German Village and Short North have some houses with cool architecture. Old Town East does as well, but pockets can be sketchy there.
Get some ice cream at Jeni's. The North Market is cool, and you can get some good Nashville Hot Chicken at Hot Chicken Takeover. While it is not the best German food in Columbus (go to Walters for that), Schmidt's is still kind of cool. You can get the buffet and try all their sausages. Get the Creme Puff if you go. Melt is a Cleveland based restaurant that has big "grilled cheese" sandwiches. It's not fine dining by any means, but with kids, it's good. Plus, they usually have a decent beer selection for you. Pins downtown and in Dublin is kid friendly during the day, I believe, and it has duckpin bowling, pinball, and other activities. There's a place in Worthington that I still haven't been to (I really need to), but have heard great things. It is like an ice cream shop, but with cookie dough instead (you eat cookie dough without the threat of salmonella).
Just a few things. I'm not sure how long you were planning on staying. Fell free to ask anything, and I'm sure you'll get some good recommendations from a number of us.
Favorite restaurant when we were in school was BJ salvi's. Not still there is it?
Had to Google it....think it's closed. Where was it?
I think it was off of 161 by the movie theater. Also a comedy club near by (this was early 90s). Pasta salvi one of my favorite appetizers.
Schmidt's not the best German food in Columbus?
hush yo mouth!
Dude, Valter's on South High. Better, trust me. It's a couple blocks from me. I stop by every once in a while.
It's definitely not, Valters is much much better located on High Street down there.
Yup, reading my mind. I know it was probably a typo on your part but Valters is awesome. Been there a few times. Love those skillets they make.
Yeah. Valter is a nice dude, too. If he talks to you once, he'll remember you forever.
Yeah i've never been, i just remember when my 9th grade German class went to Schmidt's on a field trip i fell in love with their desserts and never looked back
They also make the best bean soup i have ever had outside my grandmother's...i'll have to check that place out
Schmidt's cream puffs are awesome.. Can't say I've had any of the desserts there, though.
OP, do you need a girl to keep you company during your stay? Just let me know and I'll hook you up
I know him actually. He leased a little 1 BR apartment from my first broker when he immigrated here. We went to his grand opening and I tell everyone I know about this place. Super nice guy and takes a lot of pride in his business.
Awesome! You ever go on Tuesday evenings? The German social club/maennerchor practices there on Tuesdays. Sometimes, they'll sing some German drinking songs in the bar.
Never even knew about that. I’ll definitely have to stop in on a Tuesday for dinner then.
Ya, don't think he could afford the buffet tab with those Cbus girls...
So why don't you let me hook him up, OP drive 2.5 hours north this will be waiting......
My daughter lives there. We drove right up to the stadium. You can see the field from there pretty easily, but a tour would be better of course.
$50/hour. I can get you some on Sullivant for a big discount but you may pay for it later in medical bills
We're doing alright down here
