Friday we went to Alana's for a quickie dinner of appetizers that included this Caesar salad topped with excellent fried oysters...

...and this racy, chorizo-stuffed pepper with a rich and comforting butternut squash base. Then it was off to the Wexner Center to see the American premiere of the wild, wild, wild new movie by Guy Maddin called "Keyhole" (think shame, impulse, memory and time)

Spicy and potent Manhattan Jello shot were a weekend feature at Ace of Cups, where I went post-movie to see the entertaining Dead Indians (the new band headed by former Sun frontman Chris Burney, backed by most of Greenlawn Abbey).

The next day, after meeting my friend Dave (who had filmmaker Guy Maddin in tow) at Dick's Den for afew drinks, it was off to see the Buckeyes (at least semi) successfully kickoff the Braxton Miller era on a beautiful Saturdayafternoon. Sure, the barely existent passing game is giving us fans agita, but seeing our rushing attack (and that includes Miller's nimble legs) become a force to contend with was fun to watch; less fun to watch was this enthusiastic lady in front of me, who never ever ever got tired of "raising the roof."
