One ambitious Alive reader attempts the Scott Woods 24 in 24 challenge

On Sunday, one reader tagged Alive in a Facebook post. In it, they announced that, beginning that very evening, they would tackle the 24 in 24 challenge proposed in a recent column by Scott Woods and document the adventure on Facebook (while accompanied by a cardboard cutout of romance novel cover model and popular goose target Fabio, no less). Following a few overnight hiccups, things appeared to be back on track this morning. Here are the remaining stops on the tour:

9 a.m. Community Grounds: Coffee & Meeting House, 1134 Parsons Ave.
10 a.m. Plank’s Café & Pizzeria, 743 Parsons Ave.
11 a.m. The Crest, 621 Parsons Ave.
Noon Comune Restaurant, 677 Parsons Ave.
1 p.m. TBD (Bake Me Happy closed on Monday)
2 p.m. The Brown Bag Deli, 898 Mohawk St.
3 p.m. Valters at the Maennerchor, 976 S. High St.
4 p.m. The Old Mohawk, 819 Mohawk St.
5 p.m. Winans Chocolates + Coffees, 897 S. Third St.
6 p.m. Pierogi Mountain, 739 S. Third St.
7 p.m. Stauf's, 627 S. Third St.

We wish you well, and will plan on seeing you at some point along the route.

Columbus music queen Sharon Udoh of Counterfeit Madison tackled the catalog of Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin in a sold-out Lincoln Theatre concert on Saturday. According The Dispatch, Udoh proved more than up to the daunting task. “More importantly, she took Franklin’s inspiration — as singer, activist, and singular artist — to shape a program that allowed her own unique talent to take flight,” Curtis Schieber wrote in his review of the concert, which featured contributions from nearly 20 musicians.

In more depressing news, on Sunday the Dispatch started the final run of the newspaper to be printed in Columbus. Beginning today, production will be shifted to Indianapolis. Here’s a photo gallery documenting the final go-round of the local printing press.
