Review: Mr. Hanton’s Dogs

Hot dogs are trendy. Trendy enough that we now have several choices for killer dogs. I finally caught up with Mr. Hanton’s during Midpoint Music Festival. They, along with other food trucks, were stationed in the Midpoint Midway, which we wandered through on our way […]

Mayberry Foodstuffs Closing

Josh Campbell’s Mayberry Foodstuffs, an urban grocery, is closing, according to Cincy Voices. There just wasn’t enough business (surprising as the downtown area is burgeoning), but many of the specialty items will be available at Campbell’s other projects, The Skinny Pig and Mayberry.
