Chris Waugh has found her niche. She's put together all the disparate elements of her working life -- communications, marketing and sales -- and paired them with her passion: wine.
CityBeat: Where'd you have your last great meal and what was it?
Chris Waugh: This is embarrassing, but the last time I had a chance to eat out was nine months ago when we opened. I took the staff next door for a six-course wine dinner at mesh. Everything was fabulous -- especially the foie gras course. They did an amazing job pairing each course with different wines.
CB: Why do you have periods between the letters of "C.A.R.T."?
CW: It stands for each of the four elements of our business: courses, art, retail and travel. We arrange in-store and off-site wine courses; we feature in-store art and entertainment; we're obviously a retail wine shop; and we support Ohio tourism and our terrific local wineries.
