columbus

Yesterday was my brother-in-law's bachelor party, so I took the day to head down to Columbus to visit my friend, Ina. The first item on the menu (literally) was to go to my favorite sub shop that has a big fat 0 locations in Cleveland:
Name that shop!
Truer words were never spoken.
After that Ina showed me around Ohio State's campus. I was impressed with it--the vibe reminded me a lot of Johns Hopkins. Once we had somewhat awoken from our food coma, we headed over to Jeni's where I indulged in a small combo of pistachio honey/the buckeye state. I also sampled bangkok peanut and salty caramel. It was unique and pretty delish.

Following ice cream, we headed back to Ina's place for food coma round 2 where we chit chatted and half-watched Law & Order Criminal Intent. An hour and a half later she took me to the Book Loft where we giggled immaturely at a pop-out Kama Sutra book (my favorite pop-out involved an elephant) and browsed through their 30-odd rooms of books. A quick run to Starbucks and a short drive later we were at Ina's boyfriend's place so I could meet him. We didn't get to stay long before I had to head out to make the 2-hour drive back north, but I was so glad I got to spend a good chunk of the day with her. We go back to elementary school and have a certain rapport about us, so I'm grateful for the few times we get to see each other.
