I just read in New York magazine
that pumpkin is the new bacon. They may be on to something. Listen to
this shopping list a friend just posted on Facebook: pumpkin coffee,
pumpkin oatmeal, pumpkin cream cheese, pumpkin butter, pumpkin cider and
pumpkin-chip biscotti. Eat that and you’re likely to start glowing all

Adriatico's and Eli's BBQ on top 100 "cheap eats" list

as 98 more, from the million (yes, million)

tap plus tons of craft bottled and canned beers, you’re able to mix and match pizzas and brews for
the best combination for you. To keep up

Shanghai Mama’s was closed for nine
months following a fire last October. There was some despair among
downtowners as the months dragged on. Call it the dark night of the
soul. But Mama’s back, and I’m happy to report that she’s better than

Tim Lambrinides opened Silver Ladle on Sixth Street back in March. The new “fast casual” restaurant serves a variety of hearty sandwiches, a dozen soups, fresh salads, gluten-free options and, of course, its own twist on Cincinnati-style chili and coneys.

Maybe we’ve done
enough for this summer, and it’s time to chillax. But then we’d miss out
on the Farmers Markets, City Flea at the gorgeous new Washington Park
and planning for September and the MidPoint Music Festival. This town is

The reopening of Maribelle’s could not

The hills — around here, anyway — are
alive with the sound of music! Everyone is singing this week in honor of
the World Choir Games, which, you’ve got to admit, have actually become
the Very Cool Thing that our civic leaders were predicting. It’s nice
to see the city filled with people, arriving from all over the globe,
enjoying Cincinnati and all it has to offer. I suspect that a choir, like an army,
travels on its stomach. These singers are going to need sustenance!
