Review: Ramundo’s

I really pride myself on eating like a sophisticated six-year-old and, from desserts and breakfasts to entrees, I prefer my fare to be more on the plain side. That’s not to say I won’t eat Cookies & Cream, but there’s something to be said about chocolate and vanilla ice cream. I love a good burger…

Review: Melt and Higher Gravity

Last week BK and I celebrated our eleventh monthiversary.* But last week was also a jam-packed week on the blog, so I decided to wait to write about our night out in Northside, where we had dinner at the revamped Melt Eclectic Cafe, followed by a beer from the newly-opened Higher Gravity Crafthaus.

Review: Revel OTR

I am excited to announce Tour de Cincinnati’s first collaboration. Because I am more of a beer person (and I’m not what you’d consider “classy”), I have partnered with Blake, a friend of TDC, who is far classier, worldly, and more qualified to talk wine than I am. Thus, I present to you, the second…

Thanks for the memories, Blank Slate

Now that I’ve had some time to let the news sink in, I still cannot believe it’s gone. I’m relatively new to the beer-drinking scene, having started somewhere around 2014 thanks to BK, Ei8ht Ball (first review here and second review here), and Tour de Cincinnati. What began as casually sneaking tastes from BK’s flights, eventually…

Review: Spruce Natural Nail Shop

Everyone I know who’s been to Spruce Natural Nail Shop has loved their experience. There’s a reason for that. Service is always pleasant, the space is relaxing, and, while it’s not the cheapest nail salon around town, I love this natural and eco-friendly nail boutique on Vine Street in OTR.  My first visit was soon…
