My last meal with Alex Shebar, former Yelp Cincinnati community manager and current Yelp London community manager, was a lunch to discuss one of his events (and generally just catch up). He picked the place, as he hadn’t tried it yet– Wolf and Co., which […]

I really need to get to Covington more often– okay, though it seems like I’m there all the time based on my posts, I’m really not.  I don’t know why there’s some sort of magical force field around the river, but there shouldn’t be.  There […]

It’s really, really rare for me to go home after a meal and say, “I HAVE to make that at home.”  I’ve been doing it more lately, but my most recent foray was after Restaurant Week at Lavomatic.  I tried a new appetizer, goat cheese […]
