A restaurant in Delaware, Ohio that is. In business for over 150 years; minus the two years rebuilding it after an arsonist destroyed it in 2002. It’s name comes from the nickname locals gave the original business, a bakery, from one of it’s staples. Wonder what that staple was 😉
I decided to shoot this iconic sign from the middle of the street instead of from the often seen photo of the sign from across the street leading to the restaurant; happy traffic was very very light that day. Almost everything was closed in preparation for the 4th of July parade a block away.
Amazing how food trucks and the variety of foods they offer are multiplying. The difficulty is finding the one you want when you want it. They have a tendency to move around what with those wheels and all 😉
No idea why it was on their shirts but these ladies were making sure that those with a beer ticket got their whistles whetted.
This wasn’t quite what you were envisioning when reading the post title, was it? Today was the annual Olentangy Summer Bash – food trucks, bands, bounce houses and fireworks. The ice cream cone and I had a nice laugh together and I wished her a melt free day. I just got back a mere half hour ago and I am tired!
There’s nothing quite like getting bopped in the head a few times by flying June bugs while trying to take fireworks photos. More photos from the OSB coming shortly.
You just cannot have hundreds and hundreds of people gathered to have fun without food and drink. There were so many options to choose from ranging from the traditional fair food to more unique offerings. We all know that corn dogs are one of the most traditional foods found at events like this but never have I seen it offered from a pink castle and dragon.
Of course there was beer and here is a view from the main food street. Fried Swiss cheese, hmm.
Food trucks parked inside of the park were offering goodies like Ribman here; wish I had gone back to get something from them because they had some goodies on their menu I haven’t had in a long time.
And then there was the well known (and well patronized by students from OSU for one) pizza from Late Night Slice. Gotta love the slogan on the truck 😉
Today we finally made it to Comfest after many years of it almost always getting rained but today – unlike yesterday where it absolutely poured – was wonderful. The weather could not have been more perfect for the event; sunny with a slight breeze and the temperature being in the 70’s. But what is Comfest you may be asking?
“ComFest (officially Community Festival) is a large, free, non-corporate, volunteer-driven, music and arts annual festival currently held the last full weekend in June at Goodale Park in Columbus, Ohio. Dr. Lincoln Goodale, prominent and charitable pioneer, and the community’s first physician in his later years donated the 40 acre site July 14, 1851 to be forever kept as a public park or pleasure resort for the inhabitants of City. If appropriated for any other use or purpose, park is to revert to heirs of Lincoln Goodale.. ”
The park was host to loads of happy people, dogs, bands, vendors selling just about anything you could ever want, food and of course beer. I mean after all, it’s not really a street festival in summer without beer now is it? But there was also wine, soda pop, bottled water, snow cones and lemonade. This young lady was celebrating her 21st birthday today at the fest and as her friend could be saying – a toast to you on your birthday! The food stand they are in front of belongs to Schmidt’s restaurant. Trust me on this one when I say their cream puffs are huge and so tasty. Don’t get me started about their sausages though… oh yes!
I will be sharing more from Comfest with you in the next few days.
