Best Place in Town, Pt. II

Last week, I wrote a blog about eating at one of the best places in town – Tai’s Asian Bistro.  As for this week’s blog entry, I wasn’t really planning on blogging about “another” best place in town to eat, but I couldn’t pass it up.  I felt the need to get the word out about this great dining place in Columbus, OH.

On any given Monday, if you find yourself craving pizza between the hours of 5pm – 11pm, then it’s time for you to hit up Classic’s Pizza & Sports Bar at Tuttle Mall Crossing.  Classic’s has your typical sports bar feel, complete with all the flat screen sports-watching you can handle.  If you aren’t into watching sports, you can still enjoy some billiards or casual conversation with some friends.  At times the music can be a bit loud (and annoying), but if you read on, the food is definitely worth it.

Now, let’s get to the good part:  the pizza.  One of my favorite foods of all time happens to be pizza.  And, like anyone, we have all had our fair share of “good and bad” pizza.  At least I know I have.  Classic’s pizza comes in four different ordering sizes:  7-inch, 10-inch, 12-inch and 14-inch.  You can’t go wrong with “Classics Pizza”, which is any one-topping plus cheese.  There are several specialty pizzas too, including supreme, Hawaiian, major meat, veggie, chicken veggie, barbecue chicken and dimo’s margarita.  I have tried all, but the chicken veggie and barbecue chicken.  Personally, I don’t think you can go wrong with any kind.  The pizza is ALWAYS served HOT and within 15 minutes of ordering.  The crust is just right – not too thick and not too thin and the toppings are more than generous.  Take a look at the 14-inch pepperoni pizza I ordered last Monday night (see below) - every square inch of the pizza is covered with pepperonis.  Classic’s definitely doesn’t skimp when it comes to toppings.  Classic’s pizza is comparable to Donato’s, except that I think it tastes better, is fresher and (if you go on Monday Nights) is WAY cheaper!

All in all, Classic’s is a great place to check out if you want to get outside of the OSU campus area and try to some great pizza.  The good thing about Monday nights from 5pm-11pm is this:  PIZZA is HALF-OFF.  So you cannot go wrong with ordering a 14-inch pizza because it will only cost you $6.00.  And I don’t think any college student would argue with that price.  Plus, as you can see below, my 2nd favorite food is cold leftover pizza.  It certainly complements my reading assignments from MHR 854 Economics.

Go Bucks!


All good things must come to an end

It’s raining, it’s pouring, the old man is snoring. I knew the amazing weather wouldn’t last long – I’ve lived in Ohio my entire life, changing weather is Ohio’s trademark. Hopefully the weather shapes up for my first bridal shower this weekend! Sad news today though – I misread my indoor/outdoor thermometer, and thought it said 68 degrees for the outside temperature instead of 50, so I’m just wearing a longsleeve t-shirt, with no coat, and it’s definitely a little too chilly for that. At least I’ll be inside most of the day.

A few shameless plugs before I actually start my blog

  1. Support my sister and her team for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure by clicking here. Her name is Jennifer Osborne, and you can donate to her, or to the team or to the cause in general. Imagine a life without Breast Cancer
  2. Support the Fisher 5K. As of a few days ago, they’d raised $17,000 and counting. Click here for more information and to learn what the money supports – the Boys and Girl’s Club of Columbus.
  3. This is a great song. I just discovered it, thanks to Pandora. Check it out!
  4. Whenever you’re bored with life, or studying, or you’re just plain procrastinating, check out Mark “The Shark” Titus’ blog – Club Trillion. It’s pretty awesome and entertaining. I won’t bore you with details, you can read them in Joseph Fahrendorf’s blog if you want to know.

Now that that’s over…

So far classes are shaping out to be very interesting this quarter. It’s week 2 and so far I am completely caught up on reading. Be impressed. Normally I read before exams, and skim through it as the need arises for projects. Tonight is our first quiz for our Seminar class, aka economics. Why don’t they just call it economics? Anyway, we’ll see how it goes. Last week I missed class because I was in church for Maundy/Holy Thursday, so hopefully I’ve prepared enough to make up for it. I have notes from two of my classmates, so that should give me a fairly well rounded view of what I missed. And, as a reassurance, if I totally bomb the quiz, I can always have my lowest dropped. Whew.

I found out last night that a few of my classmates read my blog. It’s a really weird feeling to know people read it, but kind of cool, too. Most of the time when I write these things, I write them as if no one ever reads them, because I feel like it gives a more honest view of what actually happens in my life. But, still sweet that people read what I write.

Anyway, have a great Thursday. Tomorrow’s Friday and I’m going to the Daughtry/Lifehouse concert with Jaimie and a few friends, so I’m excited. It should be a really great weekend!


Winter break = freedom

Classes are over, finals are finished, papers are complete… and I’m finally on winter break!  For the next three and a half weeks I am off.  This will give me plenty of time to reflect on the Q1 and make the necessary adjustments to be more successful in Q2.

Favorite class: Managerial Economics with Professor Campbell.

Least favorite class: Data Analysis.

Overall, this quarter was amazing.  I met a lot of great individuals and I really stretched myself by taking subjects in which I had no prior knowledge.   Accounting was tough, but I survived.  I hear Cost Accounting next quarter is even harder, so that should be fun.  My professional speaking class really improved my public speaking skills and I feel much more comfortable speaking in front of large audiences.

I’ll reflect more on Q1 a little later.  Now it is time to relax.  I should also have plenty of time to blog over the next three weeks… although I won’t have anything to blog about.  Stay tuned, I’m sure something will come to mind.
