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...

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...

A Weekend in Sandusky {2017}

Last weekend I attended Bloggy Con 2017 at the Breakers Hotel in Sandusky, and the family came along for some fun and games at Cedar Point.  The conference was fantastic, and I learned so many great tips to implement on the blog.  Now I just need to find some time to sit down and make...
Madtree Brewing & Catch A Fire Pizza {2017}

Madtree Brewing & Catch A Fire Pizza {2017}

Madtree Brewing and Catch a Fire Pizza moved into their new taproom earlier this year, and their space is fantastic! From the tap room to the beer garden to the private party space to the brewery, this place is the sort of place anyone would want to hang out at.  And not just two legged...

Broadway in Cincinnati Presents: WICKED

Broadway in Cincinnati has brought everyone’s favorite witches back to town for a special engagement of WICKED at the Aronoff Center for the Arts.  I read Gregory Maguire’s novel Wicked before it was a big-time Broadway Musical and I fell in love with the tale of two witches.  I was excited to share my copy...
Burgers and Crafts at the Holiday Inn in Covington

Burgers and Crafts at the Holiday Inn in Covington

You must know by now that I like to find all the great burgers around town.  A while back we discovered Burgers and Crafts in Covington, located inside the Holiday Inn.  When they opened their doors earlier this year the internet was all abuzz about the delicious burgers offered up at Burgers and Crafts.  We...
