Taxed. Even the potato salad guy gets hit

Columbus finally got its wish: national attention. But in the form of this guy trying to make potato salad. With donations at more than $40,000 (ignore the fake $70,000 you might have seen because of fake donations), Zach Brown the mastermind or lucky duck behind the campaign might not even be fazed with the huge tax estimate on his Kickstarter. According to Columbus Business First, he is estimated to be taxed about $21,000 for his endeavor. That estimate was also based on the inflated number that has since been removed though.

Facebook doesn’t like the potato salad guy

Does anyone really look at the terms of service for anything? It’s almost universally known that you scroll to the bottom and check “yes, I agree” to whatever life altering restrictions were hidden in the legal jargon, and Zach “Danger” Brown has fallen victim to Facebook’s terms of service after his explosion of fame via potato salad. Because Facebook requires real names, the company is requesting he remove the “Danger” out of his name, which he has used without issue for three years. (The downfall of living in the limelight.)

Potato salad party: Kickstarter campaign out of control

It was all just supposed to be a funny joke between friends, sparked from a casual conversation about favorite back yard side dishes, according to the Dispatch. Victorian Village’s Zach “Danger” Brown is about to be knee deep in potato salad after turning to Kickstarter to fund a $10 side dish—he’s now raised nearly $40,000, which is probably more potato salad than he had anticipated making. Media outlets have latched onto the story of the potato salad guy (because it’s probably more fun to talk and write about potato salad than crime and murder rates), which has effectively put more fuel on the fire for Brown. Because the money has to go toward potato salad no matter what, he is planning to rent out a venue, stream the event live and make a whole party of it.

Frankly, you’ll love the new hot dog restaurant open now in Graceland

Hot-diggity-dog, there's a new hot dog stand in central Ohio! Links-N-Lemonade has completed its transition from food truck-only to brick-and-mortar, slinging creatively-topped dogs in the Graceland Shopping Center.

Links-N-Lemonade's menu consists of several hot dogs topped with different sauces and sides like cole slaw, coney sauce, and fries. Customers can opt for the classic all-beef dog or go for the veggie option.

Guests can choose from predetermined loaded hot dogs or customize their own with up to 10 toppings. Fresh-cut fries, both loaded and not, and fresh-squeezed lemonade are also offered.

Owner Damon Owens began serving his all-beef, quarter-pound dogs out of a food cart in 2011 with hopes of opening a restaurant soon thereafter.

Columbus Dispatch reports the recession slowed him down, but income from a coveted spot at Tanger Outlets Columbus off Interstate 71 put him in position to buy a food truck in 2017. From there came the 128 Graceland Blvd. restaurant, which opened in June.

Damon continues to operate his food truck, having just made an appearance at the Columbus Food Truck Festival.

Hours are 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 6 p.m. Sunday. For more information visit linksnlemonade.com.

Prost'ing has been postponed for an Olde Towne East brewery. The opening of Gemut Biergarten at 734 Oak St has been pushed back indefinitely due to "unforeseeable circumstances."

The brewery was supposed to open to the public on August 16, but ran into a "little bump with the state."

When it does open, guests can expect European and German-style lagers and pilsners brewed by former Four String Brewing Co. employees Kyle Hofmeister, Rob Camstra, and Nick Guyton. Gemut Biergarten is owned by Hofmeister and his wife Chelsea Rennie.

In addition to brews, the venture will serve wine, cocktails, and traditional German and European fare.
