Grandview Heights

Weekend doings

The Restaurant Widow has a list of things to do this weekend. Included are a zombie walk and the Grandview Art Hop.

Also, Livin’ in Cowtown relays that the Maverick coaster at Cedar Point will open on Saturday:

Breaking news straight from Cedar Point’s press office, their new 2007 roller coaster, the Maverick, will open sooner than anticipated. In fact, it will open this weekend!

As reported earlier, the Maverick was scheduled to open when Cedar Point did for the 2007 season, but after some initial test runs, the park determined three sections of track would have to be replaced. As a result, Maverick was not expected to open until June at the earliest.

Lets go to the hops

Bit of a tempest brewing between the Short North Gallery Hop and what was going to be called the Grandview Gallery Hop, as Jon at ColumbusING reports. Someone from the Short North organization has told the Grandview event that they can’t use the name “Gallery Hop”. From the Grandview site:

The Director of the Short North Gallery Hop contacted us saying that we could not use the name “Gallery Hop”. When we did a Google search for “Gallery Hop” there were almost 3 million searches that came back. The term “Gallery Hop” is widely used not just across the United States, but across the globe. We will temporarily amend the name to “Grandview Gallery Hops” until our Articles of Incorporation for a Nonprofit Organization have either been approved or denied by the state of Ohio.

Now I am not a trademark lawyer- ok, I’m not a lawyer at all- but I think that there is such a thing as a regional mark. After all, Tony’s Pizza in Dayton can’t do much about Tony’s Pizza in LA. So it would be perfectly reasonable for there to be Gallery Hops all over world, with only one being allowed in the Columbus metro area. Secondly, assuming the Short North’s complaint is legit, and I think it is, putting an ’s’ at the end does not constitute adequate relief. Besides, Gallery Hops sounds a bit like a beer ingredient museum, not that there would be anything wrong with that.

The Short North site is here, and the Grandview site is here.

UPDATE: The Grandview event has decided on “Grandview Art Hop”.
