I am here with Aggression and G Diesel and it's very quiet, in 48 hours this place is going to be nuts. It's nice to be able to hit up Max & Erma's without having to wait and fight the crowds.

Cookies?

We actually refrained from the cookies tonight and ate what you would call a "clean" meal but there will be a lot more opportunities for those cookies this weekend

I was tortured by Vinny my first year, bringing cookies to our table... Then House continued by eating them over my shoulder, all while I was prepping for my first show...lol Subsequent years the game changed...lol

This year, it's back to no cookies, but enjoying the aroma doesn't hurt... ((hmmm wonder if the drool and envious moaning will be too disturbing??))

If you all are in for some real good eats, head to the Elevator, south on high st. about 5 blocks (short blocks). I work there and if you mention John or Mambourg the busboy to the bartenders I'm sure they'd hook you up nice.

Not to mention they have what I consider to be the best food in columbus. Huge fresh made burgers, fresh steaks, seafood, etc. And if you are the drinking kind, its a microbrewry. 8+ kinds of beer on tap

First year I won't be arriving on Thursday night. Kind of disappointing, but school comes first (stupid mid-terms) so I can graduate on time and have money for future Arnolds (and hopefully a few Olympias).

Looking forward to seeing the crew Friday night at Metro!

We might have found the best kept secret in Columbus, we are lunch there last year and just had dinner there again tonight - Barley's Brewhouse right across the street from the convention center.
