Things We Love: Alive staff picks

By
From the April 17, 2014 edition

Justin:

Vegan tacos

The diversity of Columbus offerings is killing me: Barbecue tofu at Angry Baker, jackfruit at Strongwater, chickpeas at The Crest, weekly specials at Hal & Al’s and (new) zucchini tacos at El Vaquero’s.

Brad:

Phillip's Jr. at Philco

This new menu addition at the criminally underrated Short North diner is fast becoming one of my favorite burgers under $5 in Columbus.

Alyse:

Mad Men's silver fox

Roger Sterling has all the right lines and all the right moves. I can't wait to see what shenanigans he gets into this year.

Lauren K.:

Snow…

I am not talking about that horrid white stuff on the ground; I am talking about Jon Snow. He may know nothing except the way to my heart.

Andy:

Tableside guacamole

Does your restaurant have it? You’ll be seeing me soon enough then.

Jesse:

Don Draper

The tortured ad man has never looked more down, but his Cyrano de Bergerac-ing of his old ad agency (and others) through Freddie Rumsen is just another example of his utterly brilliant capacity for lying.     

Abernathy:

Aprilnathy

It’s my birthday week, chumps!

Meghan:

My new Narwhalicorn

Per Abbey’s suggestion, I named him Daryl. As in "Daryl, 'who gives a f--- about Oates' Hall"
