Mini-Review: Tom + Chee

Mini-Review: Tom + Chee

I have been having the worst trouble with my phone lately.  It seems to prefer being a paperweight to being a useful piece of technology.  Because of its bricked condition,  I’ve lost pictures from Virgil’s (and someplace else– I forget where!) and nearly lost this […]

Review – Wertheim’s Restaurant

Review – Wertheim’s Restaurant

(Guest post by The Boyfriend) In the Greater Cincinnati area, Covington’s Mainstrasse Village is my absolute favorite place…that I never visit. Julie and I rarely venture there unless we either have an event or there’s some other specific reason to be there.  It’s not on […]

Review: ForkHeartKnife (brunch)

Review: ForkHeartKnife (brunch)

Cocktail Hour Extra: The Tequila Mockingbird

Cocktail Hour Extra: The Tequila Mockingbird

I can’t tell you how many people I know say “To Kill a Mockingbird” is their favorite book. It’s a great one– a true classic. I’ve read it numerous times, taught it, and performed in a staged version of it (Miss Stephanie, if you’re wondering). […]

Review – Jim Dandy’s Family BBQ

Review – Jim Dandy’s Family BBQ

(Guest post by The Boyfriend) I have a love/hate relationship with smoke. There’s smoke.  But then there’s smoke. The wrong kind (read that as cigarette, or worse, cigar smoke) gives me an instant headache, clogs my sinuses, and transforms the whites of my eyes into […]

Cocktail Hour: The Bloody Caesar

Cocktail Hour: The Bloody Caesar

I have long said that I dislike savory drinks. I’m notorious for it– give me a Mimosa over a Bloody Mary any day. For the longest time, I avoided both the salt on margaritas and on salty dogs (defeating the purpose, I suppose).  When Mott’s […]
