My Kind of Town

Moos Flash: I heart Columbus. A lot.

Before Wednesday I would have bet money you couldn't find anyone who loves Columbus more than this cute cow; however, that morning I lear
ned there are 47 people that might just love Columbus a little more. Those 47 love our amazing city so much they spend a lot of their time promoting it! If you haven't guessed by now, I'm talking about the staff at Experience Columbus.

Wednesday, I helped Eric and Lisa take some OC season brochures down to the Experience Columbus Visitor Center. We'd never been before and it's a fantastic place! Our new friend Ben, showed us around the center and then arranged for us to get a tour of the rest of the office (which is beautiful and full of
marvelous people).

Ben is udderly fabulous and we clicked right away.

Here we are having a chuckle over the joke
I just told him. (
What kind of milk comes from a
forgetful cow?
Milk of Amnesia!)

Need to know what's going on in Columbus? Want to buy some Columbus based/themed merchandise? Want to know about Columbus restaurants, sporting events or performing arts events? Well, you can do it all at the Visitor Center!

They have all kinds of helpful things to educate you about the city I love. In the middle of the center there are several computers where you can look up events and even purchase/print tickets (if tickets
are sold on - *ahem* like Opera Columbus tickets).

Looking up some fun stuff to do this weekend:

On one wall of the center they have two HUGE magnetic maps. If you're not sure where something is Ben can point out (at lightening speed). That Ben, he's a smart (and cute) guy. Here Eric points out a super fun place to be, Opera Columbus:

I showed Ben the best place to put our Season Guide. Now when you stop in the Visitor Center, besides seeing Ben's smiling face, you can pick up an OC brochure (yay!).

On a different note, I want to give a quick shout out to an amazing friend - Amy Constantine-Kline. Some of you know Amy as your go-to-gal at the CAPA ticket office. Amy is moving back to her hometown of Pittsburgh and working at MCG Jazz. We thank Amy for all her hard work and wish her, and her family, the best of luck.
