Renegade Grille

You’ve seen Renegade Street Eats on Fountain Square, at various breweries around the city, and parked outside of Listermann Brewing on Thursday Wing Nights and Xavier game days. Now, in addition to their food truck, you can find them in their permanent home inside of Listermann four nights a week. Dave and Kris Buening started…

Review: Braxton Labs

I have never been shy about how much I loved Ei8ht Ball Brewing. (First-ever review here and second review with more photos here.) I didn’t really start drinking beer until a few years ago and it is because of BK and the vast selection at Ei8ht Ball that initially piqued my interest in beer. Suffice it…

Celebrating Father’s Day in Cincinnati

Here are some unique ideas how to spend Father’s day this Sunday: Go to the Reds game Your Cincinnati Reds take on the LA Dodgers this Sunday at 1:10pm. Make it a day out in Cincinnati by grabbing lunch downtown beforehand or an early dinner after. Some of my favorite places to eat near Great American…

Review: Wooden Cask and La Mexicana

Friday afternoon, on a whim, I asked BK if he’d like to walk to Wooden Cask Brewing Co. after work for happy hour. It had been a long (short) week, the weather was wonderful, and I’m obsessed with walking these days. I figured he’d say no anyway. Thankfully I was wrong and, around 5pm, we set…

Review: Court Street Lobster Bar

A new seafood restaurant in landlocked Cincinnati. (Well, landlocked in that the lobster probably isn’t fresh caught from the Ohio.) I felt similarly when The Anchor opened, but was pleasantly surprised by its fresh, delicious quality. The same can be said for Court Street Lobster Bar, a New England-style lobster shack located at 28 W Court Street…

Walkable Cincinnati

This past weekend I had the opportunity to spend the better part of my Saturday morning (and early afternoon) walking around my pocket of the city. (My pocket being Walnut Hills and downtown.) A friend and I try our best to do some kind of workout on Saturday mornings when the weather is nice and, since…

This Weekend in Awesome: 6/1–6/4

I have to admit: I don’t love summer. Let me explain myself. I think that 90-degree weather with 97% humidity is miserable and it gets to a point where it’s unbearable to be anywhere but in the A/C (which I’m extremely grateful to have). Thankfully we’re at the point in the year where it’s beautiful outside…

Review: March First Brewing

As we arrived to March First, we pulled into an office park parking lot, which isn’t unheard of in the brewery industry (in fact, I’ve been to a handful of breweries located in such places), but still a bit confusing at first. Fortunately they’ve got great signage and wayfinding, and making our way to the taproom was…

Photo Recap: May

I thought it might be fun to choose some of my favorite photos from the past month to give an overview of how I spent my time. These photos include some of my favorite meals, concerts, and other great events I was fortunate to have been able to attend. Plus, I’m trying to get into…
