Things We Love: Alive staff picks

From the January 30, 2014 edition


Columbus bread

Dan the Baker, The Angry Baker, Lucky’s... Sometimes I even drive down Cleveland Ave. just for Columbus Bakery’s fresh bread smell.


Pharrell Williams' Smokey the Bear hat

It takes confidence to wear something like that on stage with Daft Punk.


Puppy Bowl X

Adorable puppy athletes and penguin cheerleaders?! Yes, I'm in!

Lauren K.:

I'm yelling timber…

That’s right, I like “Timber” by Pitbull and Ke$ha. It makes me want to dance, and I don't care what you think. 


The Browns

They consistently make horrible decisions on both coaches and personnel, but I still can’t quit this team. Besides, this year will be different. Right? Right?! /sigh


“The Hunt”

This Oscar nominee for best foreign language film is a gripping look at a man (brilliantly played by Mads Mikkelsen) accused of a heinous crime, and the town’s reactionary response. The powerful and tragic film is currently streaming on Netfilx.



I just found out both Drauma and the Alternative Fashion Week kick-off are on my birthday. Forget Bradtober, it’s time for April-nathy.


Kelly Moore Camera Bags

They look like purses, but they’re really super durable, high quality leather camera cases. Great for flying under the radar.
