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...

Wabi Sabi is THE place to get Sushi in Covington.  We are big fans of their sushi rolls, especially since they are made with fresh ingredients and are half price all the time when you dine in.  They don’t just serve sushi though, there are other items on the menu for those who are not...

Cheap Date Nights in Cincinnati & Northern Kentucky

Cheap Date Nights in Cincinnati & Northern Kentucky

I have four children.  I love said children.  But I also cherish my alone time with my husband.  We’ll jump at any chance to have a date night.  While we enjoy having nice dinners in swanky restaurants from time to time, we also look for relatively cheap date nights as well.  While wracking my brain...
