Broadway in Cincinnati presents: The Illusionists

We went to an “epic” magic show tonight at the Aronoff Center, called The Illusionists.  I use the word epic because I was with two young gents who used that very word.  I cannot remember the last time I heard my boys laugh harder than they did tonight.  Not only were our minds blown by...

Smoke Justis Bar & Restaurant in Covington

Smoke Justis Bar & Restaurant in Covington
