I was going to go (we live in Columbus) and Mary Kay Sharett is DS's dietician, but that is our 6th wedding anniversary! I really wanted DS to go too and meet some other kids his age that go through what he does.

Is this a conference put on by Childrens Hospital? How can I find out the progam agenda? I am an adult onset/diagnosis and not interested in learning about childhood issues.

Thanks for the link. I will check it out. I live Northwest of Columbus in Bellefontaine so I wouldn't be a difficult trip.

Hey -- I live in Louisville, KY AND the Eddie Bauer outlet (the real one, not like the ones in the outlet malls!) is there, isn't it?????? MY DH wants to take a visit there, so perhaps he would enjoy hearing much, much more about this disease which has us eating strangely :lol: :lol:

Hi Lynne

sorry I can't help you out with the Eddie Bauer store but the conference is a nice one.I buy alot of food to bring home when I go.
So please come, you meet alot of people and for me I get to buy stuff I can't get near me...I think it is well worth the $30.00. That includes educational materials,lunch & snacks .
Hope you can make it.....

You actually get to purchase gluten-free products there? That would be GREAT! Even though we have a very competitive health-food store market here, they don't carry some of the really GOOD things . . . mamaw, it would be so nice to be able to purchase foods that we can't get here, either. Can you tell me more???

Wont it be nice to go to a conference where you do not have to make special arrangements for the lunch/snack portion of the meeting! I might just go for that luxury again.

Yes at the Columbus Conference you can buy directly from the vendors & also alot of them have sampling too. There are a couple of foods in with the info packet also..
exhibitors are:
1-2-3 gluten-free
cali fine foods
celiac specialities ( Home of the yummy glazed donuts)
ener_G
enjoy life foods
gifts of nature
gluten evolution(Anna's bread mix)
gluten-free mall
gluten-free passport

food- tek (micro fodds)
gluten-free trading co
heartland
Kathy's creations ( she has the best peanut butter bars)
maple grove
raisin rack( wondeful store)
sterk's bakery
So that is who will be there selling & sampling. I spent about $300.00 last year. I take a small freezer with me so I can keep the stuff I buy safe . I also make a trip to the Raisin Rack to stock up on other things too.
It is a nice event.My husband is the driver not gluten-free but he like the event too. My daughter is coming also ( her birthday the day of the cenference ) so we have a great time. It does seem to fil up fast so if you are planning on coming register before (9-22-06 for the $5.00 discount....

I think it is well worth the $30.00 , you get lunch & snacks..........

I hope you all can make it. I would love to meet up , maybe the same hotel? I am friends with Anna so I think we will try to meet at the same hotel........
keep me posted

Hello!

I live in Columbus and would also really love to hear about the local eateries! Been here 4 years and my biggest complaint is that there is very little in the way of good food!

I've heard of the Raisin Rack but never been. Is their gluten-free section any better than Wild oats or Whole Foods?

I'm going to do the best I can to save up money for all the good shopping! I can see my husband's eyes rolling as I type this! LOL

As far as I know, there isn't any Eddie Bauer outlet, but Columbus is headquarters for all of Les Wexners stores. (ie Gap, Banana Republic, Limited, Victoria Secret) All of those headquarters have local wharehouses that occassionally have employee sales, but I've not heard of a public outlet.

The Eddie Bauer outlet is on the west side of Columbus - I go 2x per year! It is off of Fisher Rd. and 270. Try mapquest for specifics.

For you who know columbus well, where is a good place to stay & be safe too. Last year we stayed at the doubletree on Front st( I think). We were not happy with that place.Is Front St a main drag? I knoe after we left we went in the opposite direction a few blocks & seen another hotel chain tha tlooked better---of course none of us remember the name. Before we stayed on the outskirts of columbus.
also what is the German Village?
Any input will be greatly appreciated. I think there might be a fairfield inn around close????? I don't wan tto pay $200 or $300 bucks for a one night stay cause all we do is shower & sleep, on the run most of the time. Anything under $ 150.00 I would consider. plus the more I must pay for the room the less I can spend on goodies.....



Lindalee,

I just posted the vendors afew hours ago but it you can't find it pm me. would love to see you .....If you also go to Children's Hospital Columbus, ohio all the details will come up. It does fill up quickly.......
