Crunch through those fall leaves with the November issue of 614! In honor of the time of year devoted to giving thanks, this issue highlights the side of the city that is working day-in and day-out to create some social change in their own unique ways.

From century-old establishments with locations across the country, to grassroots with humble beginnings in a garage, and tech start-ups hoping to bridge the gap between volunteers and organizations—these people aren’t doing what has to be done, they are doing what should be done.

Maybe one of these stories grabs your attention and energy to get involved. Perhaps these efforts inspire you to help out elsewhere—that’s great, too. While this month we wanted to cover as many charities and nonprofits as we could, there are numerous other incredible causes in the city that we just couldn’t get to. We’re sure they would love your help in any way, shape, or form.

Whatever form it takes, remember to give thanks, Columbus!

In the issue:

  • DO MORE GOOD IN REAL LIFE
  • GALLERY SPACE: CRAIG CARLISLE
  • NO IFS, ANDS, OR BUTS
    ABOUT AMPERSAND
  • GEMUT BIERGARTEN GROWS ROOTS
  • WHAT’S ON TAP AT CBC
  • ART MOVES FORWARD IN FRANKLINTON
  • CABIN FEVER: WINTER 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.

June 2020

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?

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."

Here's what's inside:

  • Six Pack: Fresh May suds from hometown brewers
  • Julialynn Walker helps community blossom through gardening
