Review: Sotto

I know, I know. I’ve never been to Sotto. One of Cincinnati’s best restaurants. Not that I need to defend myself, but I do have my reasons. First, BK and I don’t often go out for expensive meals. We spend a lot of money going out to eat, yes, but we don’t usually have a meal that will…

This Weekend in Awesome

As I previously mentioned, this week in blogging is a little bit different in format. I wanted to focus most of my TWIA attention towards the Bockfest Parade, but I wanted to still share this weekend’s events and goings-on with you all. Thus, I bring you This Weekend in Awesome. Some fun things to do starting…

March Madness: Cincinnati Craft Beer Edition

Editor’s update: Voting is now active! Here are the complete instructions and rationale behind selection and seeding. How the game works: 1) In the Round of 64 (first round), there are four regions — Westside, OTR, NKY, Eastside (as with regions in the NCAA tournament, they’re not at all geographically accurate by “team”) — with…

Review: Frida 602

First and foremost, I’d like to acknowledge that this is Tour de Cincinnati’s 300th post. 300. Wow. And there is still so much to talk about! Anyone who thinks there is nothing to do in this city certainly isn’t trying very hard. This little ol’ website has been viewed 36,057 times by 22,723 people in 106…

Bockfest Parade with Die Innenstadt

This [Past] Week in Awesome was, in fact, awesome, and it included such things as the Shamrock Shake (one of my favorite beers) release at Listermann, dinner from Andy’s Mediterranean Grill, lunch at Hathaway’s Diner, dinner at Brew House, a quick trip to Washington Park dog park, and dinner at Frida 602. But what was…

Favorite Five: Chili Dishes

Chili parlors have been culinary staples in Cincinnati since the 1920s and there are currently more than 200 of them in the region. Though National Chili Day may have been last week, every day is National Chili Day in Cincinnati! Cincinnati-style chili is so popular there are even potato chips made after it. I was never big into…
