WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING INSTEAD OF THIS?
 
 

Happy Living with C’est Cheese

2 Comments · Wednesday, August 8, 2012
In a sense, Emily Frank is living vicariously through her food truck. C’est Cheese, pronounced “say cheese” (but it’s OK if you never get it right — few do), is a gourmet grilled cheese truck. A year in the making but only really a couple weeks old, C’est Cheese hit Cincinnati’s ground running.  

Hello Honey, Bellevue Farmers Market, Restaurant Week

0 Comments · Tuesday, July 31, 2012
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 on a roll, people!  

Eat + Drink + Be Mari

The reopening of Maribelle’s could not come any sooner. I was eager to see the old recipes I once gushed over with friends as well as what the old tavern would look like juxtaposed with the cavalier Boca across the street.  

Braunschweiger: The ’Wurst?

1 Comment · Wednesday, July 25, 2012
“Lost in the Supermarket” has been on hiatus for a few months. For the column, I mostly play the “food rube,” searching the aisles of average neighborhood grocery stores for “everyday” items that strike me (and maybe you) as “weird” or “gross.” I investigate the food item and taste it so you don’t have to.   

Mantra on the Hill (Review)

Mount Adams' new 'mantra'

0 Comments · Wednesday, July 18, 2012
When David and Liz Cook of Daveed’s at 934 decided this year to try a new concept in Loveland, Daveed’s Next, the Mount Adams space Daveed’s had occupied at 934 Hatch St. was not vacant long. Mantra on the Hill opened in late May, lead by Chef Yajan Upadhyaya, originally chef/owner of Cumin in Hyde Park.  

Wunderbar (Profile)

Some kind of wunderful

When stepping foot inside Wunderbar, the new German-themed Covington restaurant and watering hole, be prepared for the Wurst. Their German sausages are the cornerstone for the four-month-old eatery: wholesome, authentic and in most cases house-made, freshly ground from locally sourced meats and free of fillers.

Market Garden in Place for World Choir Games

There are plenty of restaurants downtown, but for the World Choir Games, the city has set up a Market Garden at the corner of Fifth and Race streets to provide additional options that are fast and affordable. It’s a great “Taste of Cincinnati” opportunity — without the crowds and long lines.Eats include local food trucks and Cincinnati’s own Mecklenburg Gardens, A Taste of Julia, sweets from Graeter's and Queen City Cookies (yay!) and more. There are also local gift and souvenir stands. They did a great job selecting vendors for this, so be sure to enjoy it during the Choir Games.
 
 

World Choir Games Dinner Deals

0 Comments · Tuesday, July 3, 2012
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! Snacks! Skyline!   

WhackBurger (Review)

Unique Ingredients, Comic Books Inspire New Burger Joint

1 Comment · Tuesday, June 26, 2012
What do ground beef, onomatopoeia and a slew of fresh ingredients have in common? Well, nothing, really, unless you’re at the new gourmet burger restaurant WhackBurger in Covington. The small restaurant has been open for about a month now, serving big, juicy burgers with creative toppings right across the street from Madison Theater.

Your Long Weekend To Do List: 5/25-5/28

Summer doesn’t officially begin until June 20, but it’s Memorial Day weekend and Cincy’s signature mugginess is in full effect — the season is upon us! Stay hydrated, slap on the sunscreen and get ready to make the most of this three-day weekend. It’s tradition to fire up the grill and open pools at the start of summer, but the biggest local ritual this time of year is the Taste of Cincinnati, taking over downtown Saturday-Monday. Fifth Street will fill with local food vendors, plenty of booze stations, carnival rides, four performance stages and more. This year is the debut of food trucks at the Taste — be sure to stop by Café de Wheels, Pizza Bomba, Taco Azul and Queen City Cookies’ mobile eateries in addition to the traditional Taste staples. Pick up an issue of this week’s CityBeat for a guide to the Taste with a map and full menu or click here for a digital copy. Tonight OTR’s green general store Park + Vine celebrates its fifth anniversary. P+V is a hub for local goods, vegan food, eco-cooking/gardening/living classes and much more. Danny Korman and the rest of the P+V crew have introduced Cincinnatians to kombucha keg parties, bike-friendly culture and even tasty vegan cheese (seriously, it exists). Stop by the shop from 6-11 p.m. tonight and enjoy a street market with local environmental organizations, food and produce vendors. Inside, there will be music, a Flashbox photo booth, beverages and the usual great shopping. Across the street, Northside vintage outfitters Chicken Lays An Egg present a fashion show at the park adjacent to Old St. Mary’s Church. As bike month comes to a close, celebrate the way countless teens end their high school careers — with a prom! Saturday the City of Cincinnati Bike Program hosts a Bike Prom ride from Northside’s Hoffner Park to Fountain Square (and back), kicking off at 4:30 p.m. Dress in your snazziest bike-friendly formal wear, get your photo taken prom-style under a balloon arch and even vote for a king and queen. After the ride, head to Mayday in Northside for after-prom: Mobo Bicycle Cooperative’s annual fundraiser. Dance to classic prom tunes, participate in a busted bike build-off, sign up for a silent auction and enjoy delicious Mayday drinks-n-'dogs all night long. The ride is free, after-prom admission is $10. Exhale Dance Tribe presents its season closer Saturday with Imprint. The contemporary Jazz show features original choreography by Exhale founders Missy Lay Zimmer and Andrew Hubbard. Dancing With the Stars champ and 98 Degrees alum Drew Lachey hosts the evening. Check out Lea Lachey, Sherene Schostak and Traci Swain, a father-son live art performance, solo by Andrew Hubbard and much more. The show begins at 8 p.m. Saturday; purchase tickets here.There's even more going down this weekend: Read Rick Pender's Stage Door for theater shows, follow our music blog for nightly concerts (and plenty of music festivals this weekend), and check out the To Do page for more.
