Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

The Tap Room in the Brewery District
150 W. Sycamore St.
Columbus 43215


Don midwest took on the task of scouting for the venue:

Place: The Tap Room

It is in the Kroger store in German Village. It is on the South side of the store with its own entrance. They have beer on tap and also sell wine. Anything from the store except hard liquor is also available.

They have a nice facility. I have had several meetings there.

They shut down the beer at 7 PM, so if you want a beer on tap, you need to come before then. The Tap Room is still open but you have to access it from the Kroger store. Food is available from the Deli and Pizza. It is right near the Tap Room. There is no charge for the room. We can stay there for as long as we like as long as we behave ourselves and buy anything but hard liquor in the store to drink.

There is no charge for the facility. I called and signed up. We are the only group there at this time and even if a few more people are around, there is lots of space.

It is located at 150 W. Sycamore St, Columbus 43215. It is West of Front St, which makes it West of High Street.

I signed up to start at 5:30 PM on Saturday March 23. Remember to be there before 7PM if you want beer on tap or a glass of served wine.

Unlike almost everyplace in German Village, there is lots of parking.
