Experience Columbus, Milestone 229:

Last month, David and I joined bloggers from across the country for a mini vacation in Columbus. Over 3 days, we ate, drank and visited more food and drink related establishments than I thought possible. We were thrilled when we were first contacted by Experience Columbus a few weeks prior to our trip, offering to take us on a magical, all expenses paid journey through their city.

It makes the most sense to go in chronological order, post wise, and we have a lot of pictures. Seriously, you have no idea. It took me over 6 hours to edit them all, partly complicated by the fact that editing food pictures is very hungry work and you need to keep stopping for snacks.

Bicentennial Park

We hope that you enjoy our posts about Columbus as much as we enjoyed our visit. Our first stop when we arrived in Columbus was Milestone 229, a contemporary restaurant overlooking the newly built Bicentennial park. The restaurant and the park were very impressive, and it was a great way to start out our trip. After meeting our fellow bloggers and everyone furiously exchanging business cards, we settled in for a drink and a sampling of the menu at Milestone 229. Both my cocktail, named “the greensleeves”, and the all dishes we tried were excellent, as well as creatively presented.

Pimento cheese flatbread with veggies


Some familiar brews on that list

Skillet Macaroni and Cheese

And...out come all the cameras!

Pork Belly

These are the other fine bloggers we had the pleasure of meeting on our trip. I also got to catch up with Julie of Wine Me, Dine Me, who I hadn't seen all summer!

  1. The food and the beer prices both look good. I need to check this place out when we're up there.

  2. Stunning pictures. Can't wait to get back up there.
