We're back with another installment of Best Day Ever, our feature highlighting how movers and shakers spend their time in Central Ohio.

We asked the director to share her local favorites:

Breakfast: Katalina's in Clintonville. I love their pancake balls with sweet and spicy bacon.

Morning activity: I usually try to stop by a parks department event or visit one of our 28 community centers.

  • If I'm not working, I will check in with my family back home in Atlanta.

Lunch: The Olde Towne Tavern for baked wings (extra crispy!) and buffalo sauce on the side.

Afternoon activity: I live near the Scioto Mile, so I take advantage of this beautiful park.

  • If you haven't tried biking or walking along the path with great views of the river and downtown, definitely check it out.

Dinner: B & K Smoke House for some delicious rib tips, macaroni and cheese and green beans.

Evening activity: I love sitting on my terrace, relaxing and enjoying the skyline while listening to R&B on Magic 95.5 FM.
