    Favorite things in Columbus: Visits to any Jeni's Ice Cream.  Bike rides on the O-tangy trail.
    Favorite Outdoor area: Park of Roses, or just about any of C-bus's awesome festivals.
    Pizza:  Mama Mimi's and Pizza House
    Favorite nice restaurant:   Vino Vino (It's nice, but not tooo nice, so I can still feel comfortable while drinking some amazing wines :)
    Favorite Mom n' Pop: ooo so many: Betty's, Starliner Diner, The Pita Hut, Villanova (not the best italian you'll ever have, but good mom n' pop comfort food).
    Best Bar: Bob's Bar - It looks like a dive from the outside, but I assure you, it's not.  Best "good" beer selection in town.  For a good margarita though, Ted's Montana grill - amazing - all fresh squeezed citrus.

    What are your favortie things to do in Columbus?
    OSU football games, Comfest & various outdoor festivals...basically anything that's motivating enough to get us off the couch ;)

    What is your favorite outdoor area?
    Park of Roses?  That's where we took our e-pics and the roses were all in bloom...it was really beautiful.  We're not really outdoorsy people.

    Favorite pizza place?
    Adriatico's on campus for thick crust, Gatto's & Dante's in Clintonville for thin crust, and we just recently tried Z Pizza in the Short North which was really, really good (NY-style).

    Favorite nice restaurant?
    Italian - Moretti's on Sawmill
    Japanese - Akai Hana
    Chinese - Sunflower

    Favorite mom and pop, well kept secret place to eat?
    O'Reilly's has the best bar food in town & possibly the best burger as well.  

    Best Bar?
    O'Reilly's again...total dive bar (it looks like a double-wide), but we love it!  For something a little more upscale, Press Grill is great too.  Very friendly bartenders and yummy food..  You can't beat a place with a Thanksgiving dinner special every Thursday and a NY Strip dinner for $10 on Sundays.  Their wings are amazing too.  Can you tell we like to eat?
