Review: Mecklenberg Gardens & Oktoberfest To-Dos

Mecklenberg Gardens, one of the oldest Cincinnati restaurants, is a perfect alternative to Oktoberfest.  Now, don’t get me wrong– I’m not suggesting you skip Oktoberfest– but sometimes, you want something a little German, a little quieter, and maybe something with more German than American influence.

Response from 3CDC about Food on the Square

Response from 3CDC about Food on the Square

I just heard from 3CDC about the food tents at Fountain Square. Thought the tents are going away, 3CDC is looking towards more partnerships with the City and food trucks in the future.  The Strauss and Troy market on Tuesdays will not go away, and […]

No Food on Fountain Square?

No Food on Fountain Square?

Polly Campbell is reporting that food will be removed from Fountain Square starting at the end of September (this was originally reported over at Eggplant to Go). Personally, I love the vibrancy that having food and beverage vendor on the square lends to the square […]

Review: Cheezburger Cafe

I thought I had a meltdown. I had a bunch of reviews in the queue, the pictures all lined up on my iPhone.  Then, I decided to test the developer’s kit for iOS5… and poof. They were gone.  Apple released a new version, I upgraded […]

Fashion’s Night Out at Saks Fifth Avenue

Fashion’s Night Out at Saks Fifth Avenue

Food and fashion go together.  They just do. Trust me on this.  Do you get dressed up to go to special meals?  Coordinate your outfit with your meal (I do– you know, avoiding the white and pastels at an Italian meal…)? Okay, so it’s a […]
