Dick’s  Den

Bluegrass Jam Tuesday nights

Ohio looks like it belongs on the cover of a country album sometimes. Rolling fields, beer and farms everywhere, cow fields ten minutes from downtown—the imagery isn’t going to leave anytime soon. Bluegrass Jam at Dick’s Den gives us a connection to a vital part of the Ohio identity. with the very best in bluegrass and jazz.

Gateway Film Center

$5 movies and free popcorn all day

Most of us don’t go to the movies anymore because we’re wondering why you’d ever spend eight to ten bucks instead of paying the Netflix subscription. The cost of concessions sure doesn’t help. Gateway Film Center, though, perserveres against what some are considering the death of the movie theater. Movies for $5 and free popcorn might be what they need to beat staying home.

P3 Magic Theater

Tuesday Night Magic

There’s still some part of us that wants to believe in magic, even as adults. For just a little while every week, P3 Magic might be able to make magic real for you. Located in a small 40-seat theater, Tuesday Night Magic lets viewers get a really good look at the tricks on display. The magicians are so confident in their tricks that they’re willing to let people get that close—or magic is, in fact, real, and everything we wished for as kids might be true. Plus, free booze, so, hey.

Ruby Tuesday

Writing Wrongs poetry slam with open mic

Ruby Tuesday has stood in Columbus since 1973 and hosted quality music as long as it’s been around, but the Writing Wrongs Poetry event has only recently begun at the bar. The poetry slams aren’t only open mics, either. In the past there have been Team Challenge Slams, workshops, and competitions. Just as poetry is more than romantic imagery or perfect rhyming, the Writing Wrongs poetry slam always promises more than poetry.

According to multiple news outlets, including 10tv.com, the beleaguered Short North hot spot Standard Hall is once again closed temporarily after one of its employees allegedly tested positive for COVID-19.

The original Facebook and other social media posts that led to the news reports have been removed from Standard Hall's social media sites.

Standard Hall was one of the first establishments to reopen once COVID restrictions were lifted and was immediately one of the first to close due to violations. It reopened just three weeks ago.

The state does not require a restaurant to close after an employee tests positive but strongly recommends it. In this case, two other Corso Ventures establishments are reportedly closed because the same employee was within both places: the Short North Pint House and Short North Goody Boy. The now deleted Facebook post supposedly said they were closing all three for a short time to deep clean each of the establishments.

You can stay tuned for updates here or on Standard Hall's Facebook page.
