Taft Museum offers a rare glimpse into Rosenthals' private collection

0 Comments · Wednesday, December 10, 2008
Ed and Nancy Rosenthal haven't technically opened their home to the public, but this exhibition at the Taft Museum of Art allows us a peek into their life just the same. The show documents an art collection that began in 1980 with a 3-foot-tall Chinese vase. From there, the Rosenthals ventured on a collecting odyssey as they traveled throughout China and New York and chose pieces that struck them. As such, their collection runs the gamut of media, size, form, era and technique.

The world's second-largest city, with 13.6 million people, Mumbai (formerly Bombay) is an industrious booming place: a financial, media and glamour center for all of Asia but home to sectarian violence, as the world recently saw.

Nothing beats dinner in the cozy dining room of a restaurant located in an historic house when the weather turns cold. As I waited for my step-dad outside the Iron Horse Inn, the smell of a fire burning in a distant fireplace and melted candle wax stirred up images of Christmas dinners and drinks by the fire in northern Ohio.

Documentary looks at the privatization of water

1 Comment · Wednesday, December 3, 2008
The story centers on an evil international agency trying to privatize and control the water supply in Bolivia. Not gold, not oil, not diamonds, not plutonium - just plain old water. How'd they ever come up with that bizarre, seemingly fantastical plot line? After all, we all know water belongs to the people, just like air.  

Hyde Park Tavern (Review)

All-purpose pub is good for friending or dating

0 Comments · Wednesday, December 3, 2008
While Hyde Park Tavern underwent new ownership last year and has a new fall menu with several wonderful gourmet options (including a great wine list), it's still very much a pub. There are the loud TVs, the loud talkers and the visceral, sports-inspired.  

Tousey House (Review)

Reopened Northern Kentucky landmark remains a classic

As you sit by the fire in one of The Tousey House's dining rooms, you can almost feel the energy of the last 186 years, the life span of this Kentucky federal-style home.
