Completely charmed by the holiday decorations at Honey Cup Coffee up in SoHud. Sadly not around for long. Blown off overnight December 10 by high winds from the storm that produced massive tornados in SW Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky.

Christmas lights in the sycamores in front of Ohio State University Medical Center, Rhodes Hall.

Chittenden Ave duplex sporting some festive Christmas door wrap. Doorwrap for Christmas used to be obligatory in Weinland Park. Don't see much of it anymore since the area started gentrifying.

100 years ago December 21st, the luxurious State Theater opened at 1722 N High, across from the Ohio State University campus. Decked out in Italian marble, Flemish velvet, mahoghany, gilt, brass, and rock crystal, The State was a true movie palace. The State was the finest and largest (2,500 seats) movie theater in Central Ohio outside downtown. It also featured a 2nd floor dancehall. After 49 years as a motion picture theater, the building became The Agora rock club in 1970. In 1984, The Agora became The Newport. Between them the two clubs have featured everybody who's anybody in rock as well as a good selection of R&B and blues performers in the past half-century.

January 7, 2022- Early morning, frosty construction site as new Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center rises.

January 23, 2022- The OUAB set up a mini-skating rink and inflatable snowglobe selfie station on a snowy afternoon on the West Patio of the Ohio Union. Continuing high rates of infection by the omicron variant of COVID caused the event to be scaled back massively from a planned Winter Wonderland.
