September's a major month for fun-food-and-drink events, and tomorrow brings yet another "Taste": the very first A Taste of Columbus, held at the scenic outdoor pool deck of the Renaissance Columbus Downtown Hotel.

Pooling together to raise funds for the construction of HomeReach Hospice's new Kobacker House (an immensely worthy cause!) are six of Columbus' finest restaurants. You may have heard of them: Barcelona, Basi Italia, G. Michael's, Jeni's, Latitude 41 and The Refectory.

The site, scene, cuisine and reason for the gathering transform an otherwise so-what Tuesday into something special. Save a seat for me!
