Jungle Jim’s International Wine Festival This Weekend!

Jungle Jim’s is sort of like heaven for me. So many different, interesting local and international foods (and an animatronic lion dressed as Elvis). They also have a few surprising things– like an events center, where they’re holding their International Wine Festival this weekend. They […]

Taste of the World for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society on November 9

Taste of the World for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society on November 9

Taste of the World is a darn cool event. When else can you have cocktails with jellyfish, or crudite with penguins (careful, they’ll steal your jicama). Sponsored by The Party Source and benefitting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Taste of the World features a variety […]

Livin’ in the Cin: Arts on a Budget

“So, go out and do something for a weekend on a budget of $50.” When it comes to things like buying clothes or electronics or houses or cars, I am all about the deal. Full-priced clothing? Never. My laptop? A refurb. Car? Certified used. I […]

The Anchor-OTR (theanchor-otr.com) opened in September 2012 on […]

The Camargo Hunter Trials: October 5

The Camargo Hunter Trials: October 5

Horses, hunting, Indian Hill. What does that make you think of? When Laura Gleason, one of the organizers of the Camargo Hunter Trials, approached me about this event a few months ago, I was dubious. I love horses and equestrian events, but it sounded a […]

Fit Friday: Fitnext Cincinnati

(I used Grammarly to grammar check this post, because even someone with two English degrees needs a little help sometimes. This post, surprisingly enough, was not sponsored by Fitnext. I really just love ’em that much.)  It’s amazing I’ve ever even tried anything sports-related, based […]
