Spicy stew, horrendous bowling and grown men in animal costumes... it can only mean one thing: the TriAd Chili Bowl! This year, we celebrated our FIFTH ANNUAL with some really amazing chilis, and some very unusual presentations. Mike Todd (from the Columbus Blue Jackets) once again returned to pass judgment on our cooking and performing skills. He had a VERY difficult time choosing between our delicacies, but ultimately, the winner was 'Writers Block Ink', with their 1970's Woodward and Bernstein newspaper theme and Jack Daniels chili (yum!). Other teams included the 80's-inspried 'VHS Players'; the friendly 'BeSocial'; the Bob [...]

“There was these things, these killer clowns, and they shot popcorn at us! We barely got away!” This isn’t Killer Klowns From Outer Space and there aren’t really alien clowns out to get anyone, as far as we know, except for the one in my apartment affectionately named ‘Shorty’. He isn’t here to turn us all into cotton candy to be eaten by other clowns, he just wanted a sweet pumpkin with his face carved into it. However, Shorty was a little put off that he wasn’t invited to TriAd’s first annual BYOP (Bring Your Own Pumpkin) party, he therefore [...]
by Eric BrownWhen you step into my office here at TriAd, it becomes readily apparent that I love scary movies. It could be the giant Hellraiser poster next to my desk or the Texas Chain Saw Massacre and Creature from the Black Lagoon posters on the opposite walls, the Nightmare on Elm Street toys, or the various Halloween decorations that Dave graciously allows me to leave up year round. Now that October and Halloween are in full swing, my little world has become consumed with watching scary movies. There are numerous movies that I keep in very heavy rotation during this [...]
