Up Front in Cbus | December 18-24

Columbus Community

Congratulations to the Columbus Crew SC

We are proud to celebrate the Columbus Crew SC becoming MLS Cup Champions! A championship is always a special moment, but after facing challenges like relocating and taking on new ownership, this is more than just a victory. Congratulations Columbus Crew SC! Can’t wait until next season? Watch the new stadium progress on this live Downtown Construction Camera.


Celebrate Holidays in Cbus

This year the holiday season is unlike any other, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of ways to celebrate safely in Cbus! If you’re looking for a fun experience, visit the Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens for Holiday Blooms, and enjoy hundreds of colorful, unique poinsettias—or take advantage of social distanced options such as drive-in activities at the South Drive-In or Community Drive-In. Experience Columbus has a great compilation of things to do to keep your season merry throughout the downtown area and surrounding neighborhoods.


Neighborhood Dining & Beauty Services

There’s nothing like a fantastic meal during the holidays – whether it’s at a restaurant or within the comforts of your own home. And if you’re doing the cooking, why not pair your traditional homemade dishes with a carryout cocktail or growler from a neighborhood restaurant or bar?


Breakfast & Brunch:

Brekkie Shack | Order Christmas morning breakfast! Preorder for pickup Dec. 23 or 24: HERE


Lunch & Dinner:

Hofbräuhaus Columbus | Pilsner Bier is the December Brewer’s Choice! Golden, clean and crisp but with a bit more hops, this Pilsner is refreshing to the max. Or if you’re looking to bring in the holiday season, check out their festive Christmas Lager, it’s sure to spread holiday cheer. If you’re anticipating a family get-together, grab a Family Meal to-go.


In the spirit of the season, Grandview Yard is running a giveaway for restaurant gift cards! Now through January 4, 2021, share a photo of your meal (carryout or dine-in) on social media by tagging @grandviewyard—depending on the location—for a chance to win a generously sized gift card to a Grandview Yard restaurant of your choice.

You’ll get a double entry if you incorporate festive attire or decorations in the photo, like a Santa hat, light-up necklace or ugly holiday sweater!
