From Booze to Brownies: 5 places to celebration National Choc. Milkshake day

Mike Thomas



There are few things in life that can turn a terrible situation on its head immediately—and one of them is ice cream. To help you celebrate National Chocolate Milkshake Day, consider this list of five great shakes to be found right here in Columbus.

Shake Shack | Multiple Locations

Rumor has it that Easton/Short North-newcomers Shake Shack mix up a pretty mean milkshake (it’s in their name, after all). If you’re really feeling hardcore, you can opt for one of their concretes – a dense frozen custard blended at high speed with mix-ins. You’ll just have to make it through the line first…

Hadley’s Bar+Kitchen | 260 S 4th St

Need a little something for daddy? Hadley’s Bar+Kitchen serves up boozy shakes in flavors ranging from red velvet cake to bacon bourbon maple. If you have reservations about mixing booze and dairy, these shakes will make you a believer.


Eden Burger | 1437 N High St

The milkshakes at this vegan burger joint are so decadent, even staunch carnivores will leave satisfied. Vegan or not, put brownies in a shake and you can do whatever else you want. When your shake comes with a spoon, you know you’re in good hands.

Chop Shop | 2159 N High St

This campus eatery has some of the most underrated burgers in town, and the same can be said of their milkshakes. While their menu doesn’t explicitly include the option for boozy shakes, there is a bar in the back of the place. You figure it out.

Krema Nut Company | 1000 Goodale Blvd

If a store that sells bulk nuts and trail mix doesn’t immediately come to mind when you’re thinking milkshakes, you’re in for a treat. Krema Nut Company is known to have some of the best shakes in town, some of which feature ice cream made with their own nuts! Peanut butter and PB&J are standouts, but for the bold, there’s Krema’s hot & spicy peanut butter shake. Now there’s a flavor you won’t find at the average burger stand!

What’s your favorite shake in town? Let us know in the comments!

Condado Tacos open in select locations after closing its doors Tuesday




Condado Tacos is open once again after closing its doors to the public Tuesday following an employee walkout Monday night. Polaris and Clintonville locations remain closed until further notice.

Employees at the Polaris location walked out Monday after refusing to fulfill a catering order by the Ohio Highway Patrol, according to a press release from Condado Tacos Wednesday. The employees who walked out were given the opportunity to not work on the order, without repercussion, if they didn’t feel comfortable, according to a statement provided by Linda Powers, Condado Tacos director of marketing.

The order by the Highway Patrol was placed at the Condado Tacos Polaris location on the fifth-straight day of George Floyd protests in Columbus. Floyd’s death was ruled a homicide following an incident where a Minneapolis police officer placed deadly force on Floyd’s neck with his knee. The incident has sparked protests across the country, including Columbus.

After reaching out to Condado’s PR agency over email, the contact stated that their team has “parted ways” with the business. 

Wednesday’s statement by Condado says they “value different points of view,” but, “choosing not to serve a particular group, in this case law enforcement officers, in itself is discrimination and goes against our core values to welcome and serve everyone.”

Read the full statement here.

The End of the Road?

Julian Foglietti



As the economic impacts of COVID-19 continue, we are beginning to see the effects take their toll on Columbus eateries. Here's a list of some of the changes taking place.

The Sycamore+Cosecha Cocina  

Grow Restaurants, the company which owns Harvest Pizza, has listed The Sycamore and Cosecha for sale. While there hasn't been confirmation that the restaurants won’t make a reappearance in some form, Chris Crader stated in Columbus Underground, “It’s a lot of work to re-open after the pandemic and we have a considerable amount of interest in these two properties so it doesn’t make sense to open and then close again so quickly.”

Miller's Ale House

Both Miller’s Ale House locations are closing. The Florida-based company has removed mention of the Ohio locations from their websites.

Flowers and Bread Co.

In a recent article with Columbus CEO, owners Sarah Lagrotteria and Tricia Wheeler announced the closure of the cafe portion of their business. There are plans to expand the flower and bread workshop portion of the business under the new name Flower and Bread Society.
