From simple to adventurous, Columbus had options for New Year’s 1922-23

For most people in Columbus, Ohio, New Year’s Day in 1923 was a time to celebrate the coming of new times and to remember passing places and people.

The weather was chilly but cooperative, and many people took the opportunity of a holiday weekend to spend time with family and friends.

Most of the churches in the city held “night watch” services on New Year’s Eve, with special programs of singing and music. Other people spent the evening in a favorite restaurant. The Oriental — at 30 ½ N. High St. “over the Kroger Store” — offered a New Year’s dinner at $1.50 per plate. People of more modest means found their supper at the Stadium Restaurant at 580 N. High St. There — for 55 cents — one received “cream of chicken soup, roast stuffed spring chicken, green peas, mashed potatoes, combination salad and tea or coffee.”
