A bit of sugar, some spice, and a whole lotta nice are being put into a property at 1540 Parsons Ave. J’s Sweet Treats plans to hold a soft opening on February 28.

The award-winning sweet boutique bakery specializes in luxury wedding cakes that are sure to leave a lasting impression on all who indulge. Flavors range from traditional favorites like vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry to gourmet options such as banana pudding and butter pecan.

“We specialize in making magical memorable moments through edible art because let’s face it… without us, it’s just cake,” J’s says on its website.

The Columbus Commons has been missed this summer, and the Columbus Commons misses you. Columbus may not be getting a summer concert series, the Columbus Food Truck Festival, or Picnic With The Pops events, but, Central Ohio foodies, there will be food trucks.

Beginning last Thursday, the Commons invited Columbus residents downtown to a variety of four food trucks: Cupzilla, Fetty’s Street Food, Pitabilities, and Queen’s Table. 

The four above-mentioned food trucks will be at the Commons Thursday, July 16, from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. 

In order to safely socially distance, orders must be placed ahead of time through Street Food Finder. Guests are asked to wear a facial covering when picking up their order. Head to the Columbus Commons website here to find out more information on food truck availability this summer.

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]
