The (Ohio) River ran through it

So, here’s how our quick Covington/Cincinnati getaway started: Half way across the Ambassador Bridge, I realized that in a few minutes someone was going to ask “Where you going” and the answer was, legit “We’re going to Kentucky”, but it behooved me to not follow that up with “We’re going to the fair”. Also probably […]

Foodie Friday: Cincinnati’s Top 10

My Gentleman Associate is at a woodworking workshop at Lost Art Press, so I’ve been set loose to find my own adventures for 3 days while he’s building his toolchest. In deference to the traditional cuisine of the area, I decided to take a half-day tour with Riverside Food Tours, exploring Cincy’s top 10. The […]

Thursday Throwdown: Roadtrippin’

Mike and I are off to Covington, Kentucky today. It’s going to be a 6+ hour drive. Mike claims that if I sing “We’re going to Kentucky, we’re going to the fair…” he’s going to leave me on the side of the interstate. I feel like he might be serious. Funfact: he likes to drive, […]

Today, we expanded our wanderings to a few breweries and some other fun stops, and we invited Coocoolooloo […]

Throwdown Thursday: Wanderlust Edition

Child returns from Europe in a few days. He’s been there 4 times in 2 years, and has visited 6 countries. He may be running out of space in his passport. For those of us stuck at home, here’s a playlist that’s a poor substitute for sashaying around Europe, but still pretty great for sashaying […]


Everyone knows how much I like the seaside. I go to the beach as often as I can, and I’m fortunate to live within a few hours of 3 of the 5 great lakes. As well, Canada has millions of rivers (depending on your definition of when a creek becomes a river. I’m being generous […]

Bacon and Ale Trail: After Action

I know that I’ve mentioned this in passing a few times, but in the interests of Making the Most of the Dash, I thought a debrief was in order. So, to the After Action Report, then! The way this tour works is that you go to the Stratford Tourism Alliance on¬†Downie¬†Street, you get your map […]
