Tonight I ventured down High Street in Columbus - the area is known as Short North Art District --- I started by driving down the entire street and then finding a parking spot near a diner that caught my eye. The place looked like an old movie theatre - the marque in lights -- called Skully's Music-Diner. I entered it was dark with lots of neon, booths and tables you would expect to see in a diner - a large wrap around bar. I sat down and was greeted pleasantly by the waitress. Lindsey was her name, she was covered in beautiful tattoos, wearing a rockshirt, music from the 80's playing loudly, as I looked around at the diverse characters of individuals and friends carrying on and having good times to each of their selves. Lindsey recommended the Buffalo Philly Sandwich, a house specialty of Chicken covered with Buffalo Wing Hot Sauce, cheese, onions, peppers on a hoagie roll with some lite blue cheese, accompanied by their great curly fries. To top of this great indulgence (My trainer would have a heart attack) was their Macaroni Wedges - Deep Fried Wedges of Mac & Cheese with Ranch sauce - so delightful and hot - once cooled they become addictive. This place is truly a treat and if you get the pleasure of going there - make sure you give a shout out to Lindsey - that Billy sent you there. After my dinner - I took a very long walk down the entire High Street and back - (at least I got some exercise in). The street is lined with shops, restaurants, coffee bars, and galleries... even a White Castle. Beautiful murals on some buildings catch you attentive eye. It was very cold for such a walk, my nose started running because of the cold - at least I had my warm leather coat and my knit gloves (I did not wear my hat becuase I tend to get really bad hat hair - yes --- I am vain). I took lots of night pictures and look forward to posting them later this weekend when I can download them all and sort through the best of them. Can not wait to return during warmer weather and explore this street again.
