Review: Senate Blue Ash

When your favorite restaurant opens a second location, you make a point to check it out. When your favorite restaurant’s second location also serves Sunday brunch, you do what you can to get there as quickly as possible. Alas, BK and I do not make it to Blue Ash very often — certainly not during…

Fifty Fest is one of my Favorite Local Beer Festivals for…
