All About Alexa

We've been following 25-year-old Brit ex-pat Alexa Chung since before she crossed over the pond to become MTV's new star on It's On with Alexa Chung. We're smitten by the confidence and individuality she exudes so well by combining vintage and new so effortlessly as if to shock convention. We're smitten. Did we say that already? Catch her feature in September's Marie Claire just out on newsstands.

We Like Bike

We're excited to be part of the first wave of Downtown local businesses to support in Columbus. It's a collaborative bike share program with participating retailers. We just bought our first bike and took it for a spin! It's the perfect way to get around the Short North (with basket for your purchases), not to mention an easy and conscious way to lower our carbon profile. So far, 10 shops Downtown have signed up in the first wave with 50 more hopefuls by summer's end.

Over the weekend at Gallery Hop, Tigertree hosted a press preview to discover more about the bike share program, including Mayor Michael Coleman.

Loaning a bike at participating shops is complimentary and easy. Each shop provides lock and key. 2-hour time blocks for use. Riders must complete a simple form and waiver of liability provided at each participating retailer. Riders can take a bike, run errands, visit the various retailers throughout our neighborhood, stop and enjoy food/drink/shopping and return the bike for others to enjoy. Super simple.

Visit one of these participating businesses to try one of the Kona Africa 3.0 bikes:

Paradise Garage
Vino 100
What the Rock

If you like the bike, visit Paradise Garage ( to get your own. With every two bikes purchased, one is given to an aide worker in Africa.

Dave Hunegnaw of Sandbox and Josh Quinn of Tigertree deserve the credit and thanks for getting this program off the ground. Let's push our pedal to the metal!
