Broadway in Cincinnati Presents School of Rock

Last week we were able to spend a night on the town in Cincinnati and see Broadway in Cincinnati’s latest and greatest show, the School of Rock.  This show was fantastic, and the best part about the show was the incredibly talented cast of children.  They could sing, they could act, and they could even...

Fort Mitchell Public House

It occurred to me this weekend that I just keep taking pictures of our meals at The Fort Mitchell Public House and have not yet shared them.  We love this neighborhood restaurant and eat there quite a bit.  Their beer selection is always changing and they just updated their menu, so we always have great...

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...
