Tweet What once was the “don’t drive through that” area in downtown Cincinnati has since become the new dining and bar destination. Over-the-Rhine, once home to Cincinnati’s infamous riots, has undergone a complete transformation over the past five to six years. It’s now an urban hub for great food, cocktails and boutique shopping. I’ve been […]

Cincinnati Spotlight: Findlay Market

by snackface July 8, 2012 Uncategorized

Tweet I’ve been spoiled. The first food market I ever experienced was San Francisco’s Ferry Building. Years later, I was in awe of Cleveland’s West Side Market. And just last week, I finally made my way to Cincinnati’s famous (or Cincinnati-famous) Findlay Market. As both a Cincinnatian and a food person, I am embarrassed to admit that […]

Tweet Last Saturday, after working for six hours at the office, the crew and I decided we deserved a break. A delicious, satiating break.

Tweet I woke up today with a plan. To go to work, to go home for lunch, to go back to work, to go to the gym, to go home. So what did I do? Only some of that. I went to work, of course…after having major closet dilemma. Someone please take all my clothes. […]

Attitude Turning Point

by snackface March 27, 2012 Uncategorized

Tweet Hi, beauties! I’ll be honest with you. About 3/4 of Tuesday was a bust. I’ve been bragging all month about, “I have no idea why your allergies are terrible this season! Mine are completely fine!” I was completely wrong. Ka-ka-ka-karmaaaaa! An allergy attack started at 7:30 p.m. Monday and didn’t quit until 4 p.m. […]
