It’s already January 7, 2010. I’ve been way too lax about keeping up with this blog. I will do better in the new year.
When last we saw our intrepid TV crew, they were eating ice cream at Tom’s Ice Cream Bowl in Zanesville en route to Columbus. It was Thursday, December 3, 2009.
Truth is: we were going to the capital city of Ohio to meet Nicholas Drekker who writes a fascinating blog called “Breakfast With Nick.” It’s about his favorite meal and some great places in the Columbus Ohio area (and occasionally beyond) where you can find interesting morning meals. I had stumbled upon his blog while doing some breakfast research, and I liked his writing, his opinions and his attitudes. I was really happy when he said he’d help us with our program.
We met Nick, his wife and 17-month-old son for dinner on Thursday night at one of their favorite spots. Nick was frankly younger than I thought (not a bad thing) and seemed a good talker, always the kind of person we’re looking for. I had asked him to suggest two or three breakfast highlights in Columbus, and we agreed to meet him the next morning at a place called The Best Breakfast & Sandwiches in a suburb called Westerville, sort of northeast of the city.
