CW Star Finds of the Week
By Alissa Henry, Cameron FontanaPosted Jan 30, 2013
Music: One of my favorite country music groups is coming back in town: Rascal Flatts! The Grammy Award winning trio recently extended their “Changed” tour and the winter leg of the trek will stop at Nationwide Arena Feb. 9. It’s a perfect early Valentine’s Day date idea! Kicking off this great night of Country Music is The Band Perry. You can follow the concert on Twitter: #ChangedTour2013

Food: Last week, I had the pleasure of embarking on a culinary adventure during Restaurant Week Columbus, and one of my destinations was Till Dynamic Fare. Owner and indie chef artist Magdeale Wolmark is a two time James Beard nominee and an expert of biodynamic agriculture, placing the highest production standards on the ingredients he uses. The food is very unique and very delicious, the most popular being the lamb burger, one of the best burgers I’ve had in the city. The bread was fluffy, the meat was cooked perfectly, and the flavor was as fresh as it gets. Make sure you explore the rest of the scrumptious menu as it includes chicken liver éclairs, crispy pig tails and goat cheese tiramisu. They won’t let your taste buds down!
Where to find: 247 King Ave. Columbus, OH 43201
Fashion: When it’s wintertime here in Columbus, the zero degree forecast can easily de-motivate your desire to go out and buy some new threads. The obvious solution is to shop online. But where you shop makes all the difference. I personally love Jack Threads, a members-only shopping community that serves up the freshest contemporary, street, & footwear brands at exclusive prices daily. Membership is free, and you can even login with your Facebook account. The best part is their phone app showcasing their everyday deals and dividing their clothes by price range. Come summertime, you just might ditch the road trip and stick to your computer.
