Taste Overview

Taste Overview

You know, I wasn’t into Taste this year– I’m super busy, between work and theater (same with Terry) and just wasn’t feeling it. Fortunately, The Chocolate Horse and 5chw4r7z dragged me out and I had a good time. Things I noticed: more corporate sponsorship, but […]

Review: Arloi Dee (Best Damn Dish!)

Review: Arloi Dee (Best Damn Dish!)

Arloi Dee recently won the Best in Taste award for their chicken lettuce wraps.  Since I work around the corner, I had to try them– and, of course, dragged a coworker with me.  It’s a favorite Thai stop for me– a little more expensive than […]

Tweeting for a Cause

Tweeting for a Cause

Hey, everyone– I know a lot of you are heading down to Taste of Cincinnati in the next two days.   Be sure to check out the Katie Reider stage (particularly the Chocolate Horse, but I am not particular).   Also, check out the World’s Largest Tweetup, […]

Mini-Review: Chick-Fil-A

Mini-Review: Chick-Fil-A

OK, I know, I know, I don’t review chains. But this one I have nearly a personal interest in. Nearly. Outside my office, on Mason-Montgomery Road, I’ve watched the old Amor de Brasil be torn down and the lot rebuilt over the past few months. […]

Review: Slims Northside

Review: Slims Northside

It’s really hard to write a “review” of Slim’s because every meal is different.  Though the food always has a distinct Latin American flair, you will never eat the same meal there twice.  The menu is fresh, seasonal, and grown– quite literally– around the corner, […]

News: Hamburger Mary’s Reopening, Summer 2009

I’m so excited! One of my very favorite burger places– Hamburger Mary’s– is reopening. You may remember them being HM for a time, then Universal Grille, which closed a few months ago. It’s reopening at its old location (900 Vine). I know, it’s a chain, […]

Thursdays at the Palace– $60!

Thursdays at the Palace– $60!

Check out Michelle’s blog to see the menu for the Palace’s two-course meal for two for $60 (including wine!). Amazing– I wish I had time to go tomorrow. This is not every Thursday, so check it out while it’s available. It’s a great way to […]

News on Tom’s Pot Pies?

News on Tom’s Pot Pies?

I walked past the Vine street store of Tom’s Pot Pies and noticed it was “closed for reorganization” and pretty much cleaned out. Has anyone heard any more? I love his pies (as I know many of you do) and heard from Veggie Option that […]

Mini-Review: McCauley’s Pub

Mini-Review: McCauley’s Pub

I went out to lunch (a “working lunch”, so no pictures) at a place I’d never tried before– McCauley’s Pub, which is on Fields Ertel (towards Maineville). I’m having a heck of a time finding it listed anywhere– but it’s great! Very hole-in-the wall, with […]
