Like other months, we’re waist-, nay, shoulder-deep in responsibilities. But, unlike other months, we shelved our adult selves to eat, drink, play, and collect like much younger versions of ourselves.

This August, we encourage you to change your lens on the city and enjoy it from the perspective of a tike, a toddler, a tiny person. We tell you where you can find your favorite childhood dish: hotdog octopus in a macaroni sea. We adventure through the woods (just at a tad higher speed than when you were a youngin). We even take you into a bedroom where there’s no such thing as too many toys.

Don your play clothes, Columbus, we’re acting like kids this month.

In the issue:

  • An Adult’s Guide to Playing Young
  • August Festival Preview
  • All Things Thurber
  • Flytown Records Lands in Columbus
  • An RSVP to Roys Supper Club
  • The Global Grocery at Saraga
  • The Family Fun Guide
  • Fall Weekend Getaways

The reading experience is optimized for tablet devices. Turn your phone or tablet horizontally for the 2-page spread view or vertically for the single-page view.

In normal times, the month of June is the long-awaited start to summer - backyard barbecues, outdoor concerts, patios and enjoying our relatively short-slice of perfect weather. Instead, 2020 has offered a season of challenges from COVID-19 to the ongoing protests surrounding police brutality and the killing of George Floyd.

This issue went to press before the Floyd killing and subsequent protests. Columbus was just emerging from the pandemic lock-down as businesses stretched their arms and prepared for the return to semi-normalcy.

If you have any stories of helpers you would like to share, let us know here.

Here's what's inside:

  • Carryout Coronation
  • No "small" in small business
  • Rockin' in a F-150: Truck-bound concert series reaches the city's most vulnerable with music
  • The Parlor: Reconnecting Artists and Audiences
  • The Music Lives On: A 'night out' from the comfort of your own couch
  • Drive-In Renewal: The battle at home against trolls
  • Ohio Wineries
  • Salvation in a Can
  • Columbus' Asian Kitchens
  • Not a Moment Too Soon: The reopening take of Valter's at the Maennerchor
  • Employee of the Month: How a manager's dedication kept a Columbus classic going
  • Sustainable Adaptation
  • The Bread Diaries
  • Carryout Coronation: Dining-in may be back, but carryout is here to stay
  • Making the Pivot: New Distillery Thrives despite uncertain climate
  • Sound of Silence: Craft & Vinyl rallies small business struggling through the shutdown
  • Special Delivery
  • Love in the time of Corona: You smell so good, is that Purell you're wearing?
  • Two Arts Collide: Combining art forms, FERA hopes to reinvigorate the Columbus Denim scene.
  • Quarantine Fashion
  • #Asseenincolumbus
  • Thank you!

As Ohio continues to deal with the physical and economic toll of the coronavirus, we decided to shine a spotlight on the 'helpers'. These are your friends, neighbors and fellow citizens who have stepped up to contribute in their own ways.

The cover, design and features were inspired by the well-known Mr. Rogers quote... "When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, 'Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping."

If you have any stories of helpers you would like to share, let us know here.

Here's what's inside:

  • Six Pack: Fresh May suds from hometown brewers
  • Julialynn Walker helps community blossom through gardening
  • Yellowbird Foodshed offers alternative to grocery shopping
  • The Saviors: the nurse, the doctor, the mask makers
  • The Innovators: feeding those in need, sanitizing shift
  • The Educators: from college to K-12
  • The Helpers: keeping the music alive, keeping pantries full
  • The Fighters: mobile kitchens to staying on the air with CD102.5
  • Self care while stuck at home
  • Social Distance Cinema
  • Giving thanks: letters from our readers

Well, this wasn't the issue we had originally planned. Life for all of us took a sudden detour in mid-March and here we are - telling the stories of restaurants trying to survive, and tips on making it through our at-home-exile. There is the serious too. Read what our readers thought (back on March 23) about the government response to the COVID-19 pandemic and read a profile on the woman who is inspiring legions of fans - Dr. Amy Acton.

We hope you enjoy this issue and with your support of us and the many businesses advertising in our pages, we will see you again next month :)
