Over the weekend Burke and I went to Westgate to browse through Gypsy Soul Antiques & Vintage Home Decor. Here we were greeted by shop owner, Heather, and learned there are a variety of small business selling their craft: candles, natural dog treats, jams, blankets and towels, handmade tables, and more! Burke was wishing he could bring home the parking sign from the Arena District. I overruled that purchase!
From there, we headed to Dirty Frank's West. As Dirty Frank's West features three types of all-beef dogs, steamed, ripped and charred, and also veggie dogs, you cannot say there is no type of dog for you. Take a look at this menu! Burke ordered the Ohioana and I ordered the West Virginia Slaw Dog (thank you DFW for serving with no onions!). And I ate every bite! So good!
I am happy to tell you...we went to the Wounded Warrior Dog exhibition at the Ohio Craft Museum! As a special treat, the artist, James Mellick was also there. James told me the wounded dogs were the newest feature of his extensive dog sculptures, and a way he can honor veterans. This exhibition is running through March 26, be sure to stop by!
So I was wrong about which character was in the video, but here is the little animated piece that taught me not to drown my food. I took this lesson to heart. Except for when I eat a West Virginia Slaw Dog. That's a different story!
