Summer is not generally a reflective time. But for a moment, think back with me. 50 short years ago, it was the mythical Summer of ‘69. Apollo 11 landed on the moon, shrinking our solar system a bit and creating heroes. The Woodstock Music Festival hosted 400,000 young people who were transfixed and transformed by Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, The Who, and The Grateful Dead. And there were the Stonewall riots, an altercation between the LGBTQ+ residents of Greenwich Village and the New York City police that launched the LGBTQ+ rights movement, eventually leading to one of the biggest celebrations Columbus throws every summer.

No, it doesn’t last forever. Change does happen. One summer at a time, it happens. We no longer live in a country where people can be arrested merely on the basis of their sexual orientation. But we are still struggling to allow LGBTQ+ individuals to worship as they will, to serve this country, and to access healthcare, housing, and safe spaces without discrimination. In this issue, we’ll explore Pride in Columbus and how people express their birthright to love.

In the issue:

  • Show Your Pride
  • Summer Fests in the Six
  • Maker’s Space: Classic Ford Broncos
  • Shake Shake Shakes Up Columbus
  • Lincoln Social Goes All The Way Up
  • Rock Candy Healing Stones
  • Fourth Street Runway
  • CBus Brew Bus
  • Gallery Space: Hakim Callwood & Lauren Carter Best
  • Return of the Columbus Destroyers

Interest in video games falls on a continuum; and if you’ve ever kicked back with a controller, you fall somewhere on it. On one end, you can think of casual players; on the other side are those who take gaming seriously. But what became increasingly apparent as we researched and refined the articles about gaming in Columbus for our cover package was just how much substance there is in between these endpoints.

For readers whose idea of an escape doesn’t involve a screen and a controller, we’ve put together some destinations in Ohio with top-notch food and wine that will help you feel far away without traveling very far at all.

We at (614) highly encourage you to check out numerous destinations this month, whether online or off. Since you never know exactly which castle your princess is hiding in, you might as well explore them all. We wish you well on your quest.

Is there another holiday that inspires quite so much hand-wringing as Valentine’s Day? We’ve found that people tend to approach it from one extreme or the other: it’s either the holiday that will fundamentally define your relationship that everything hinges on; or it’s just another day on the calendar designed to increase sales of candy and roses that can be comfortably opted-out of. Middle ground is hard to find.

Whether you’re in a relationship, looking for one, or happily single, the love-minded stories in the February issue of 614 Magazine are moving reminders of the different ways we connect and share time together. Is everything “happily ever after”? No—and that’s OK. There are ups and downs, perfect spontaneous moments, and events that go unexpectedly awry even after months of planning. That’s love, and that’s life.

We’re here to give you options, though if you decide to default to “Netflix and chill,” we certainly won’t judge. No matter what, readers, we’re glad you’re here. However you choose to express love this February, we choo-choo-choose you all.

In the issue:

  • Finding and keeping love in Columbus
  • Gallery Space: Phoenix Rising
  • Mic Drop: Elijah Banks
  • Belly up to Lawbird
  • Rooh is rising
  • Fearsome fusion
  • Wheels to work
  • The wedding issue

There are a few things you can count on when it’s January in Columbus: miserable gray skies, exercise classes filled to the brim with folks attempting to make good on their New Year’s resolutions, and (614)’s annual Interview Issue. Thankfully, at least one of these three inevitables is an enjoyable one.

The Interview Issue is our annual moment to take stock of who is making Columbus the city that it is right now. It’s an opportunity to pause and reflect on the stories of our neighbors who are doing incredible things, and consider how their work contributes to the tenor of our town, impacting—in ways large and small—our own lives.

In the issue:

  • THE INTERVIEW ISSUE
  • GALLERY SPACE: KYLA RAFERT
  • SOUNDCHECK WITH SNARLS
  • THE SECRETS OF GHOSTWRITER
  • POPULAR PEPPERONI
  • SWEET THINGS COLONIAL CANDY
  • FROM THE COURT TO THE KITCHEN
  • 614HOME: GEORGIE HOME
