Dine out to stand up for racial injustices this Saturday

Figuring out how to support the Black Lives Matter movement during a time like this is a difficult decision that varies from person to person. Some may not want to step out of their house to protest in fear of their own safety. Gathering in mass crowds is still something that people are avoiding. And for good reason.

There are other ways to help amplify Black voices than heading downtown for a protest. One of those opportunities is this Saturday, June 27, at a nationwide fundraiser cause that got its roots in Columbus—its culinary roots, that is.

Spearheaded by Fox in the Snow Cafe and Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams, Food Industry Action is a fight for racial justice and equality, where restaurants will donate five percent of Saturday’s sales to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund.

There are over 200 restaurants that have signed up to donate on Saturday.


“The hospitality world is reeling from the impact of the pandemic. Like us, many restaurants have been struggling, working tirelessly to bring their teams back. But every person I’ve spoken to in the industry wants to help in the fight against racial injustice—to do something now, and commit to continued changes throughout our system over time.”

Jeni Britton Bauer, founder of Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams


Below, you can find a list of participating restaurants in and around the Columbus area: 

The Food Industry Action mentioned in its mission statement that the participating restaurants feel the need to play their part in “demanding action in dismantling white supremacy.”

Barrels, get your whiskey barrels here!

Middle West Spirits has just announced a new sale program to unload their growing surplus of whiskey barrels. Barrels will be available for pickup and sale from their warehouse, 470 E. Starr Ave., Sat., July 18,  8 a.m. to noon.

Middle West will sell 30-gallon and 53-gallon barrels for $50 and $75 respectively. You may also pick up barrel staves for $3. 

The barrels for sale were used for either bourbon, rye, or wheat whiskey, and the barrel type can be specified upon purchase. 

Whiskey barrels, and bourbon barrels, in particular, have a long history of reuse in spirit aging internationally. This is a wonderful opportunity for home distillers to snag a barrel for their own experimentation. 

And if your skills lie outside of the world of homebrewing, there are more than enough craft possibilities in one of these recycled barrels.. With projects ranging from bars, to chairs and tables, the DIY-er will have endless options for creativity. 

Barrels will be available on a first-come, first-served basis and can also be reserved by emailing the barrel size and whiskey type to [email protected]

Even though City Brands announced that the Wine Bistro in Worthington wouldn’t be returning, there were initial rumors that the Westerville location also wouldn’t be making a comeback.

Original reports were wrong, and City Brands announced the return of the Westerville Wine Bistro, 925 N. State St.,on July 9 after a light remodel. You can find the (614) report on the City Brands reopenings and closings here.

The remodeling isn’t the only thing that’s going to be new about the Wine Bistro in Westerville, though. Or as we should we say now, NAPA Kitchen + Bar. With locations  in Westerville, Dublin, and Montgomery, Ohio,  NAPA Kitchen + Bar is a sister concept to The Wine Bistro.

“We feel the NAPA Kitchen + Bar concept will really appeal to a wide range of guests in Westerville. We wanted to undertake this conversion for quite a while but never found the right time to close down for the renovations,” Tim Rollins, President of The Metropolitan Companies and owner of NAPA kitchen + bar, said in a press release on Thursday.

The restaurant will be open Monday through Thursday, 4 to 9 p.m., Friday and Saturday 4 to 10 p.m., and Sunday, 4 to 8 p.m.
