Studio 35- Oldest Independent Cinema & Drafthouse, Hosts Free Oscars Event in Clintonville

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On my way to Laura and James’ house, I saw this cool theatre, Studio 35,  and read the marquee.  Pulled over to the curb and got out the camera.  Thought it sounded like a fun evening.  Took the shot from the car and the day was a gray one.

This theatre looks l like the ones I knew growing up.  No theatre in Pittsburgh serves beer as far as I know.

My DIL was teasing about my getting home to watch the Oscars Sunday night, live stream on a computer as I have no TV that gets any channels. It is always fun to see the best and worst dressed though.  A lot of hype in the media.  But this image evokes nostalgia for me.  One of these visits to Columbus I am going to have to go watch a movie here.

Butter- Salted or Un

A variety of butter in the Dairy Case of the Clintonville Community Market in Clintonville Ohio. (walking distance from Laura and James’ home)

Minerva Dairy Amish Butter is on the right and Hartzler Family Dairy butter  ( from Wooster, OH) on the left.

Just last Thursday I ate dinner at a friend’s and she told me that someone told her, “Butter is love.”

A year ago this month the butter sculptor and “butter cow lady” from Iowa, Norma Lyon, passed away and her obituary is in the New York Times.

The butter in this photo was captured in early April. When we lived in Germany the commissary sold Danish butter and I see my family buying Irish butter these days.

What’s your favorite butter?


Ray Ray’s Hog Pit – Clintonville, OH

In Laura and James’ neighborhood, I see a lot of people lined up at this food truck whenever it is open- Ray Ray’s Hog Pit in Clintonville.  I read that on Sunday they feature a special of grass fed beef brisket.  Laura and James are veg so we’ve eaten at the Whole World Natural Restaurant & Bakery across the street or at their home.  But one of these visits I am going to get in this line and see why everyone is willing to wait in the chill air, order up and eat! It must be really good.  In fact, I think one weekend I should make a tour of Columbus Food Trucks  Here is one review
