Cincy Craft Madness Championship

Update: voting has ended. Results will be posted soon!  We’ve made it to the final! After a 64 beer start and more than 35,000 votes, the championship starts now.

Favorite Five: Appetizers

Growing up I went out to eat a lot. But aside from the occasional Potato Skins and Mozzarella Sticks (not that there’s anything wrong with either; we just didn’t do a whole lot of branching out), I never truly appreciated the art that is appetizers — a necessary precursor to most meals. My appreciation for appetizers probably…

This Weekend in Awesome

Hey guys! Guess what? Spring is here. And the return of spring means the return of flowers and Washington Park Deck hours and so many fun things to do outdoors.

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…
