Planning a summer wedding in Columbus?

Get busy! There are so many summer wedding locations in and near Columbus but summer 'tis the season. Have you tried all the popular venues and found out that they are booked?

If you are still looking for the perfect spot and are willing to travel a little outside of I-270 (or even to Clintonville!) you might still be able to have your wedding outside ON the day of your choosing.

Food Pantries in Columbus

This doesn't really have anything to do with being bored in Columbus. The winter months often take their toll on families - higher heating bills, seasonal workers are laid off and food costs keep going up.

If you or someone you know is in need of food assistance, there are several food pantries and other organizations throughout Columbus that can help.

Here's a quick snapshot of one of Columbus' best neighborhoods.
