Review: Anchor OTR

Review: Anchor OTR

I am starting to get confused. People are talking about the Anchor– and, you know, people have been talking about the Anchor for years, except they were talking about the greasy spoon in Covington, and not the hip, straight-from-Brooklyn eatery in Over-the-Rhine. Now, instead of […]

New Things: Kona Brewing, eat well cafe

New Things: Kona Brewing, eat well cafe

My favorite part of my Hawaiian vacation in 2006 was the beer. I drank a lot of it. Without going into the gory details, I was on a 7-day cruise in Hawaii.  The food was unpalatable, the surroundings insanely beautiful, and I was on the cruise […]

Last Minute Wine Gifts

Last Minute Wine Gifts

I know, “wine me, dine me” doesn’t talk about wine much. I’m planning on changing that. I tend to be someone who obsessively reads about something (cocktails, food, whatever)– so a few books have been a lot of fun to read while I’m exploring the […]

What do you eat when you’re alone?

What do you eat when you’re alone?
