Review: The Echo

Review: The Echo

It’s no secret that Terry and I can usually be found at Tucker’s on Sunday mornings.  One day, when we had to go to breakfast  early– Tucker’s doesn’t open until 9 or so (I think!)– we pondered where to eat (home was not an option!).  […]

Market Wines’ Summer Sips

Did you know Findlay Market will be open until 6:30 on Tuesdays?  To celebrate this change, Market Wines is doing a wine tasting from 3:30-6:30 on Tuesday evenings, starting July 7.  For this tasting, they’ll be partnering with Madisono’s Gelatos. The tasting includes St. Germaine […]

An Old Friend:  The Peanut-Banana Smoothie

An Old Friend: The Peanut-Banana Smoothie

(Guest post by The Boyfriend) Julie and I have been on a smoothie kick lately. Virtually every summer, I rediscover at least one favorite recipe.  It’s usually an old reliable standby that, for any number of reasons, dropped off the radar for a few years.  […]

Murphy-Goode Outcome

Murphy-Goode Outcome

Well, our Michelle didn’t make it into the top fifty– though she was a top 50 vote getter (which I consider a huge achievement). My thoughts on the less-than-transparent voting process are over at my other blog (that I need to update more), dittochic. She’s […]

News: Lavomatic no longer open for lunch

Sad news, Lavomatic will no longer be open for lunch– my source says that any lunch they’ve been to there recently has been dead. Sad to hear, there aren’t that many lunch places in OTR that are a little upscale. Tucker’s for burgers, anyone?

Review:  Taste of the NFL

Review: Taste of the NFL

(Guest post by The Boyfriend) It’s a tough job, but somebody’s gotta do it. Julie realized a few weeks ago that she wouldn’t be able to cover this year’s Taste of the NFL at Paul Brown Stadium.  Because of a long-scheduled performance of The Vagina […]

Discussion: Grippos, Mike-Sell’s, Husman’s and other local potato chips.
Review: Wild Ginger

Review: Wild Ginger

Last month’s Happy Mouth outing was to Wild Ginger, a pan-Asian restaurant in Hyde Park.  It’s a place I’ve tended to go to for lunch, historically– I’d get their pad thai (good), sushi (good, yet a bit expensive) or miso soup (delicious).  This was the […]

Mini-Update:  Newport Pizza Company

Mini-Update: Newport Pizza Company

On Veggie Option’s recommendation (well, Mr. Veggie Option’s), I tried the BBQ Chicken Pizza on Saturday night. Wow– pretty good stuff. I had had Italianette BBQ Chicken Pizza earlier that day (the original location on Plainfield, not the cheap imitation on Erie) and I am […]
