Hello guys,

I have a chance at a job in Columbus (going up the 12th for an interview), and wanted to get your opinions on the city/wheeling scene?

Thanks,
Chris

I went to OSU and liked the town. I'm not a partier and there was still tons to do. As for a wheeling scene, pretty much non-existant.

I have lived here in Columbus for 23 years. The job market is the thing that attracted me and kept me here. There are quite a few good jobs, and the cost of living is very reasonable. As far as entertainment goes, Columbus is up and coming. There are some nice malls, theatres, comedy clubs, and restaraunts, and downtown Columbus has a pretty good nightlife. Also, the Brewery District has some really good restaraunt/bar scene with some great local brews. IMO the professional sports scene here is severely lacking, but the college sports are pretty good (OSU Buckeyes). Wheeling here is getting scarce (but not yet nonexistant). Most of the good local places to 'wheel have been closed down, but there is still some private property that we can go to, and there are some good places relatively close in PA/KY/IN. Of course, if you have any specific questions, feel free to ask...

Also, the frame on my '95 Tacoma was perfect at 230,000 miles even as much as I beat on it, filled it with mud, and drug it across stuff....and the truck is still going strong from what I hear...

Thats the reply I wanted to hear.

I favor the local restaurant/bar/brewery scene :)

Here in Knoxville, TN the only sports we have is college, big basketball football town. 100,000+ drunk fans wandering around and shut down part of the town haha. Down here people are college sports crazy, is it the same in Columbus?

How's the hockey team? I really liked going to our local Southern Professional Hockey League (bottom of the bottom of hockey, ive seen better college games).

I'm a young just starting professional and it seems like Columbus would be good for me (I really need to get away for a while), and a lot better than an alternative of middle of nowhere Texas.

Oh and I'm a Civil/Environmental Engineer

Yes, Columbus is full of rabid Buckeye fans, myself included. They had a tough year this year (all sports not just football), but overall they are a top school, so it is a great college town. Coming from NY to a Big 10 school, it was a welcome change.

Well, if you like watching bad hockey, then you'll be right at home...lol But the Columbus Blue Jackets have a nice new arena and a good following...

Well, IMO Columbus is a good place to get a start in a professional career, and still have some fun.

The Knoxville ice bears are the shittiest of shitty hockey teams.

Well, Columbus has a shitty hockey team (Columbus Blue Jackets), a shitty soccer team (Columbus Crew), and a shitty minor league baseball team (Columbus Clippers) although the clippers sometimes get some good entertainment in the form of major league rejects and misfits playing here while suspended...lol

So, if you like to be able to watch mediocre games, then go out on the town afterward, then its the place to be :D

My tires stuck out about 2" on the tacoma, I had no rear bumper, and I had tinted tail lights and no license plate lights. I never had a problem. As long as you dont bring attention to yourself, you'll be fine.

And no emission testing here :)
