Hank and Charlie on "Californication"

Usually a bromance becomes a little tiresome even when it isn't trite, but Hank Moody (David Duchovny) and Charlie Runkle (Evan Handler) are part of quite possibly the greatest nonsexual love story of all time.


Fried c hicken at Park Creek Kitchen

I consider myself a fried chicken connoisseur, and this Upper Arlington gem serves up the best, complete with mac and cheese and peppercorn honey.
