Malaysia is located so far from here most of my friends couldn’t point it out on a map. But lucky for us, Ohio just welcomed its first Malaysian restaurant right outside Cincinnati. In the belly of an old municipal building in Mason is the new restaurant Straits of Malacca.

Beach Waterpark Closed for Summer

The Beach Waterpark, a summer hotspot for locals and visitors alike, will not open this summer, according to a press release from Warren County Convention & Visitors Bureau.The organization's president and CEO released this statement today:“We are saddened to hear The Beach Waterpark will not be open this summer. Tourism is the largest industry in Warren County and as a significant attraction and major landmark in the County for more than a quarter of a century, The Beach has had a lasting impact on visitor spending which, in turn, fuels jobs and revenue for the County. We realize this was a difficult decision for the park’s management and hope they can reopen in the future.”The Beach's website has not been updated with this information; there is still a job fair listing on the home page, which was supposed to take place March 24-25, along with a 2012 operational schedule.Apparently those looking for summer fun that's a step up from the city pool will need to visit Kings Island's Soak City Waterpark. Kings Island is set to open April 28, with the waterpark opening May 26.The Beach sprawls across 35 acres of land, pumping 2 million gallons of water throughout more than 50 rides and attractions including The Cliff, Kahuna Beach Wavepool, the Lazy Miami River and the Hidden Rapids.

What was thought to be a plane turned out to be a prop built on The Beach Waterpark’s property. Hours later, things got even more confusing when some of the first responders passed Kings Island and became certain they were in France because they saw the Eiffel Tower.

Lunch in Cincinnati, lunch in Costa Rica — is there a difference? Beyond the view, a significant difference is that you'll leave less trash behind when noshing in a rural area in the Central America country.

When a government tries to tread on Americans, we don't take it lying down. That’s why thousands of people visited downtown Cincinnati today to participate in the Cincinnati Tea Party, a widely organized event meant to demonstrate displeasure with President Obama's federal stimulus package and the concept of taxes in general.
