Hang Over Easy (Review)

All day brunch and booze to cure a hangover — or get one

0 Comments · Tuesday, June 3, 2014
The best course of action when opening a restaurant with the aim of catering to the glassy-eyed, post-party brunch bunch might be to keep it close to a college campus. And Hang Over Easy chose the perfect spot in Corryville, close to the University of Cincinnati and a string of thriving new hot spots on Short Vine.  

World Food Bar (Lunch Review)

0 Comments · Wednesday, August 12, 2009
After picking up some hot sandwiches at the new World Food Bar at Findlay Market (1801 Race St., Over-the-Rhine, 513-342-1968), the only sounds emanating from our table were “mmm … mmmm” followed by: “Holy shit. Let’s go tell everyone how good this is.” It’s not surprising that the food was excellent, knowing chef/owner Joshua Campbell’s extensive background working in some of the finest restaurants in Cincinnati, Florida and the Bahamas.   

Missed Connections

An open letter from a confused straight guy

Dear Amanda, It was nice talking to you at Cadillac Ranch Friday night. It was kind of a weird place for a straight person like myself to be out socializing. You know, with the hundreds of gay people who showed up with Guerrilla Queer Bar. That's why I appreciated your forwardness when you told me I was cute and asked me if I was gay.

When she walked into Buddakhan bar and restaurant downtown on New Year’s Eve afternoon, I wasn’t paying attention. Sitting at the far end of the bar, I was busy sulking while drinking a vodka and cranberry. I was thinking of my therapist, who tells me I shouldn’t let other people’s negative energy or behavior affect my mood.  

My Bartender and Bar Politics

I think that bartenders are like therapists for some people. You say things you wouldn't normally tell anybody else. That was my case with Laura. Over the three plus years I've known her she's seen just about every side of me. She listened to my ramblings and babblings beyond when she probably could stand it.  

Reflecting Over Crab Rangoon and Smiles

I'm sitting at the bar in Buddakhan restaurant at 713 Vine St. downtown. It's late Thursday afternoon, and I'm having my usual vodka and tonic. I'm starting to feel more relaxed, less grumpy. Maybe the surroundings have something to do with my improving mood.
