As everyone rejoiced over the beautiful weather this past weekend, it was a happy reminder that spring is finally here. For all of us here at The Club, that means the start of a wonderful busy season filled with Special Member Events, Weddings, and Catered Events. We’ll see more and more people joining us here each day which always puts a smile on our faces.
We recently launched our new Spring Catering Menu which features a lot of bright and fresh new dishes, so check it out here to add exciting new seasonal tastes to your next event.
As for Member Events, we have a variety of them coming up. First we have our annual Mother’s Day Brunch on May 8th. Make sure to make your reservation now to celebrate the best women out there, as this event fills up quickly!
On Tuesday May 17th, we’ll be hosting Anne Amie Vineyards for a Premier Winemakers Dinner. Joining us will be Thomas Houseman, a Master Winemaker from Anne Amie, and he’ll be sharing with us his skill and passion for making these delicious west coast wines out of Oregon. To learn more about our wine dinners, take a look at our blog from last month’s Drinking Like a Master Sommelier Wine Dinner.
Additionally, on Friday, June 17, The Faculty Club is holding its first Blues Night. Last summer we began a music series here at The Club that has so far featured two Jazz Nights, each with remarkable artists. This June we’re trying out Blues Music with renowned musician Sean Carney. Be sure to make your reservation soon as this music series has proven to be a hit! Visit our Club Calendar here for more details on this event and others.
After a cold winter, spring is the time to get outside and enjoy what the city has to offer. Living in Columbus, that’s actually quite a lot. For those days you won’t be joining us here at The Club, we’ve got a few ideas to share with you for fun things to do around town.
- Go to a Columbus Clippers Game! — This is a favorite of ours here at The Club. Getting out on a beautiful night to enjoy an All-American past time? It doesn’t get any better. Don’t forget the Cracker Jacks!
- Looking to have a Picnic? Why not head out to one of Columbus’s 20 Metro Parks? Or one of Ohio’s State Parks? Ohio is one of the last states that doesn’t require payment to enjoy their state parks, and of course the metro parks are free to enjoy as well, so pack a tasty lunch and head over to one of these gorgeous parks and enjoy the day outdoors! If you want something a little more unique, check out the Topiary Park downtown which mimics the famous work of George Seurat’s “A Sunday Afternoon on the Isle of La Grand Jatte.”
- One thing this city isn’t lacking is festivals! We’ve got one for almost every occasion. One of the best festivals to check out in Late Spring is the Columbus Arts Festival. If you enjoy the talented artists whose work we feature here at The Club, check out the outstanding work of a variety of artists from all over the nation. It’s right on the Riverfront downtown and also showcases food vendors from almost every type of cuisine. Good food and outstanding art! What more could you want?
- If you’re looking for something to do on a Saturday morning, check out your local Farmer’s Market! One of the best Farmer’s Markets in town is in Worthington. It’s got a large variety of items and it actually goes year round.
- Are mornings not your thing? Check out the Gallery Hop in the Short North on the first Saturday night of each month, or head down to the Scioto Mile on Friday nights to catch Movies on the Mile or Rhythm on the River!
- If you really want to be one with the outdoors, try hiking at Hocking Hills, Zip Lining through the Trees at Zip Zone in Lewis Center, or go Canoeing/Kayaking/Rafting at Trapper John’s Canoe Livery in Grove City. These are some of the best ways to experience and appreciate nature in the amazing Buckeye State.
These are just a small few of the never-ending list of things to do in central Ohio. So get out there, soak up the warm sunshine, and enjoy the fresh air! Spring is calling!
