ON THE NIGHT BEFORE Valentine’s Day, Strongwater Food & Spirits held a fast-paced event focusing on Columbus Love: locals supporting locals. The five presentations centered on businesses and visionaries who champion a stronger and more viable Columbus community.
Drag Queen Nina West served as the host for the night. The presenters were Addie Mayella Cheges from Mute & Gold, John Lynch from Rambling House Soda Pop, Donald Isom and the I AM DANCE team, Chet Ridenour from car2go Columbus and the Short North Civic Association and Dr. Randy Sharma from RockDocOhio and Project Zero. There is no doubt that everyone in attendance walked away with an overwhelming sense of pride, love and appreciation for the city we call home.
Founded by an architectural firm in Japan in 2003, PechaKucha Night is an evening of “chit-chat” presentations that follow an international format of 20 images for 20 seconds. Presenters share ideas, work and passions in a relaxed and informal atmosphere to a community of creative and fun peers. The unofficial motto of “thinking and drinking” makes the nights not-to-be-missed events. Learn how to get involved or check out past presentations at: pechakucha.org/cities/columbus.
