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...

Smoke Justis Bar & Restaurant in Covington

Smoke Justis Bar & Restaurant in Covington

Smoke Justis touts itself as a sports bar, but I would say the TVs spotlighting sports are not the main event here.  Smoke Justis is a great hangout for friends or family, even if sports is not your thing.  Smoke Justis has a basement full of video games and offers live music on a regular...
