Dinner at Lisse in Covington

If you want to have a top notch steak dinner then you really should treat yourself to dinner at the Dutch inspired restaurant Lisse in Covington.   I would venture to say that the steak at Lisse was one of the best I have had, and all the other foods we tasted were amazing as well,...
The Hannaford in Covington

The Hannaford in Covington

The bar and restaurant scene in Covington has really been booming these past few years.  The Hannaford at Pike and Madison is one of the more recent newcomers to Covington.  They opened in 2016 in the old Mutual building in Covington after it was empty for so many years.  The Hannaford is in a great...
Apocalypse Brew Works in Louisville

Apocalypse Brew Works in Louisville

During a recent trip to Louisville we were looking for a brewery to stop by for a quick brew before meeting up with friends and we ended up at Apocalypse Brew Works.  Louisville is booming with craft breweries much like our own hometown, which makes it fun to try to find new places to try new...
Cincy Shakes Presents Tom Sawyer

Cincy Shakes Presents Tom Sawyer

Tom Sawyer premiered this weekend at Cincy Shakes and will run through December 9th.  The show was downright delightful and would make an excellent holiday outing for families or even as a date night.  Tom and Huck’s antics and Becky Thatcher’s sass had me and Sam in stitches.  And the intense scary scenes had us...

Camping at the Natural Bridge State Park 2017

Every fall we spend a weekend camping at the Natural Bridge State Park campground and hiking around the Red River Gorge.  It is a treasured family weekend that always leaves us with memories for a life time.  This Fall we had a fantastic campsite, and the weekend started out like a dream but soon turned...
Brain Candy Live at the Aronoff Center

Brain Candy Live at the Aronoff Center

Coming to the Aronoff Center for one night only is a one of a kind show called Brain Candy Live.  I have seen this duo perform  on late night television, but I have never seen one of their shows.  It sounds like a ton of fun!  My family is excited to witness their antics on...
Lunch at Tela Bar + Kitchen

Lunch at Tela Bar + Kitchen

I do not know what I loved more at Tela Bar and Kitchen, the food or the groovy decor.  When we dined at Tela the chefs knocked it out of the park with the food we ate, and the kitschy, vintage decor made me smile.  The bathrooms are covered in concert posters that make me...
The Jailer's Inn Bed & Breakfast in Bardstown KY

The Jailer’s Inn Bed & Breakfast in Bardstown KY

We have stayed in the Jailer’s Inn Bed & Breakfast twice now and each experience was full of memory making fun (and maybe a little haunting).  This old timey jail turned bed and breakfast is in the heart of Bourbon country in the quaint town of Bardstown. The accommodations are unique and well cared for,...

Cincy Shakes Presents: Dracula

October is the only month of the year that I try to be brave and watch scary stuff.  So it makes sense that I went to see Dracula at Cincy Shakes on Friday the 13th. The Cincinnati Shakespeare Company outdid themselves with this phenomenal production.  I was not expecting how dark and gruesome this production...

There is a magical, mystical event happening in town this weekend and you do not want to miss it!  BLINK Cincinnati is a feast for all of your senses!  Blink Cincinnati is a festival like no other.  It is a celebration involving light, art, music, food and beer in our fair Queen City. We went...
Urban Artifact Brewery in Northside

Urban Artifact Brewery in Northside

There are many great breweries in our area to choose from, but I  have only been to one that is in a church basement and that is Urban Artifact in Northside.  There is great beer (with quirky fun names) and great live music at Urban Artifact.  And if you find yourself itching to play bingo...
Moonrise Doughnuts

Moonrise Doughnuts

If you love doughnuts then you need to find your way to Moonrise Doughnuts some evening soon!  Way back in the day there was a doughnut shop in Latonia where you could go late at night and get fresh doughnuts hot out of the fryer.  Moonrise Doughnuts is bringing back the nostalgia of eating fresh...
