Mixing up the Perfect Old Fashioned

This old-fashioned method of crafting a cocktail has been around for almost 130 years, spending time in and out of the limelight.

We'll explore the ingredients and the perfect way to make your own old fashioned at home. For a little background, you should know a little bit about its history. In 1862, the book Jerry Thomas' Bartenders Guide: How To Mix Drinks was published, and in it were instructions from earlier days of bartending.

If you don't have friends who are knowledgeable about the local scene, check out these options for nightlife entertainment.

The Only Short North Tavern with a $5 Burger Night

A few months ago, we noticed other Short North taverns weren't offering any great deals on Mondays, so we decided to come up with one ourselves. While Mondays may have seemed dull before, now you can spice them up with the best deal in town—$5 gourmet burgers at the one and only Arch City Tavern! That's right, a custom selection of our gourmet burgers are only $5 every Monday. We wanted to give our neighbors a way to end their Mondays on a positive note. Those of us who go back to work at the beginning of the week probably experience a little bit of stress on that first day. What better way to let off some steam than meeting coworkers and ...

The Arch City

In the 19th Century, a city’s nickname was not only well-defined but it was widely known and used.  If someone mentioned “the Twin Cities,” it was understood that they meant Minneapolis and St. Paul.  Mentioning “the Big Apple” was clearly a reference to New York City.  It was more in fashion then that it is now but, in those days, Columbus was well known as “The Arch City.” Most of the locals in Columbus are used to the street-spanning metal arches that line the Short North, West Broad, and a few other locations around the city.  Even today with the skyline growing higher and higher above the streets, these arches are quite a ...
