    Two very different places. Sweet Carrot is a counter service place with decent barbeque, but not the best I've had. The Avenue is a more upscale steakhouse. There are better steakhouses in Columbus, but it's good. There are better options on Grandview Avenue in my opinion like Z Cucina or Spagio.

    Best steak is Jeff Ruby's, but it will cost you a body part. Nice value steak at Gallo's Kitchen & Matt & Tony's.

    Hey everyone! Coming to town for the Arnold classic next weekend and staying across the street from the convention center. Someone recommended we go to a bakery in German town. Would anyone know where about German town is and is it far outside the city? Thanks!

    German Village is approx 1-2 miles south of the convention center. There are a few bakeries in the area, so not sure which one you’re looking for, although Bake Me Happy and Pistacia Vera are good. Juergens bakery was well known there for 50 years but closed a couple years ago.

    Pistachio Vera is great as is Fox in the Snow, who has the best egg breakfast sandwich along with pastries

    Arnold Classic closed to spectators except for the Saturday night finale due to coronavirus fears.

    With all the 'Rona nonsense going on I never came back to post my AAR of my STL - Detroit - Columbus road trip.

    Had an absolute blast. Met some good and interesting people, enjoyed some long country drives, saw a hoarder's house that was overflowing with garbage, only had the car breakdown once. Ended up going to Sweet Carrot (didn't have time for steakhouse after the car incident) and the food was very good. Serving size looked small, but was deceptive in that it was very filling. I love the parking at Nationwide Arena as well as the ticket prices - if I lived in the area I would 100% buy season tickets.

    The game was amazing and most of the fans were really cool. The only downsides are the total lack of legroom in the lower bowl (what is this, a stadium for ants?) and this fat old drunk lady who could not STFU for more than 10 seconds at a time for the second half of the game and had to scream everything she said.

    I also liked the NationWide VIP lounge area for employees and the four seats crammed into the boards between the benches. My goal is to try to get my hands on some of those tickets for my next trip. I will definitely be going back.

    Shout outs to Perrysburg PD, Midas on Woodville RD, Enterprise rent-a-car, nice Uber lady, Billy the toothless tow truck driver, and Megan the Applebees waitress for giving my buddy and I a road trip to remember.

    Every time I pass by Riverside/161 I cannot comprehend how different that entire area looks.

    Potential new chant for the Fifth line:

    Tune: Allez Allez Allez

    We've conquered all of America
    We're never going to stop
    From Toronto down to Tampa
    We've won the f***ing lot
    Nummelin and Nutivaara
    The ice of Nationwide
    We are loyal season ticket holders
    And we come from Palos de la Frontera
    Allez! Allez! Allez!
    Allez! Allez! Allez!
    Allez! Allez! Allez!
    Allez! Allez! Allez!

    From the video that’s been posted around, looked like a road rage incident
