Coffee: the fuel that gets your morning moving. The stuff of first dates. The perfect beverage for those deep conversations between best friends.

Coffee is great, but the only problem is getting enough of it in your body. Chug away all day and you’re bound to get the jitters. Coffee enemas? Not for everyone.

Short of mainlining the stuff, there’s no better way to get your fix than coffee ice cream—and would you believe it? Today is National Coffee Ice Cream Day! Enjoy these picks of our favorite coffee varietals from Columbus’ many great cone zones.

Velvet Ice Cream | 11324 Mt Vernon Rd, Utica, OH (and in a freezer aisle near you)

The velvety goodness of this down-home ice cream is all the rocket fuel you’ll need to get through your day.

CRMD | 1190 N High Street

As long as you’re getting coffee out of the way, you might as well take care of breakfast. Top that java treat with your favorite childhood cereal at this millennial-targeting High Street newcomer.

Graeter’s | Multiple locations

Graeter’s might be Cincinnati’s top export aside from Skyline Chili—and unlike Skyline, no one can fault you for inviting chocolate to this party.

Johnson’s Real Ice Cream | 2728 E Main St

Johnson’s is nothing short of a Columbus institution. With ice cream this good, they could afford to play it safe with their flavor names—but what’s the fun in that? Get a scoop of “Coffee and the Cool Beans” today for a rockin’ good time.

Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams | Multiple locations

If you’re not already flying off the handle in a caffeine-induced stupor, hop in line at Jeni’s for a scoop o’ Joe. In this case, cream and sugar are mandatory!

Making cocktails at home is hard—that’s a statement we won’t get much debate from with the drinkers at home. Maybe it’s the magic the bartenders in this city wield that make our drinks so damn delicious, or maybe it’s just our lack thereof. But sometimes all you need is a few tricks of the trade to become a master of your own home bar, and that’s where High Bank Distillery comes in.

Fresh from the still comes High Bank’s newest bottle release: Professor Rum. Stock & Barrel stopped by the facility, kitchen, and bar to see how we could concoct our very own cocktails at home with the rum. Here are three options for you to try. Or of course, just simply stroll down to HBD and have one of their cocktail wizards whip you up a delicious elixir.

1.5 oz. Vanilla Infused Professor Rum .75 oz. Demerara Simple Syrup
1 oz. Half and Half
2 oz. Fresh Orange Juice

On the 18th of September, some great folks—the powers at be only know who—determined this would be the day humankind celebrates the juicy, succulent, greasy creation we've come to know and love as the cheeseburger.

And on October 7 through 12, your good friends here at (614) decided those would be the days we'd celebrate burgers and beer here in Columbus!

Burger + Beer Week, presented by (614) Magazine and Ohio Beef Council, is your chance to enjoy $6 burgers and local beer specials at 75+ of Columbus’ top restaurants:

Some restaurants will discount their menu mainstay burger for the event while others will whip up entirely new creations you can only get during Burger + Beer Week.

And thanks to our friends at Columbus Brewing Company, Seventh Son Brewing, Platform Beer Co - Columbus, and Land-Grant Brewing Company, you'll be able to greasily grab for a specially-priced pint to wash down your meal.

But, perhaps the best part of Burger + Beer Week is the opportunity to give back. Now through October 12, you can enter to receive dinner for four people at six Burger & Beer Week restaurants plus a craft beer gift package, with each unique entry equally a $0.25 donation to the Columbus Diaper Coalition!

Be sure to RSVP to the event and follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for loads of burger giveaways, like this one we have going on right now with Ted's Montana Grill!
