At the beginning of 2011 winter quarter, I decided to schedule a formal "break" from grad school. So I came up with this really good idea to trade my compensation and staffing textbooks for a week of sun and fun in the Tampa Bay, FL, area with my girlfriend. And if that isn't exciting enough, I decided to pick the week of my birthday to take that break! It's like a personal spring break ...
After resisting (and resisting and resisting) for over 3+ years, I finally retired my "dinosaur" LG flip phone and caved-in to being a proud owner an HTC smartphone. In all honesty, I was probably more "forced" to move in the direction of smartphones rather that freely choosing to move in that direction since almost all phones packages now require a data plan.
I know what you are thinking. And, believe me, I thought it too. For starters, my blog title is a bit cliche (and lame-o). But, if you can move past that, it's hard NOT to notice the signs of spring all around us: Birds chirping their brains out at 6am and prematurely waking me up; trees budding; tulips beginning to push up through the ground; grass turning green, consistent 50-60 degree weather and the lovely April rain showers that produce May flowers.
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.
I have always had a penchant for trying to find the best places to dine out. For me, there is nothing like going to my favorite restaurant, bar, diner, cafe' or sidewalk shack to get some amazingly delicious and succulent food. I would almost consider dining out as a personal hobby of mine. It's really no big secret, I like food and food likes me.
