Grrls Grab Your Boys

Dec
13
Yes, it’s the holiday season and yes, you have 900,000 things to do but it’s worth it to add this one to your list: Have dinner at Palomino on Saturday night. Make reservations to sit by the window around 6:00PM. Then you can see the skaters on Fountain Square and the fireworks from the rooftop reflected in the 5/3 Tower windows. Very romantic.

Sung Korean Bistro

Oct
18

Sung Korean Bistro has recently opened in the old Aioli site. Dinner last night was very tasty. If you normally order a medium spicy dish, you might want to downgrade here. The scale is 1-3 but the 2 was pretty hot.

I had the spicy vegetable & tofu stir fry and it was great. My dinner companion had the sushi appetizer and the Gimbab appetizers & the Dolsot Bibimbad.

There was a decent crowd for a Wednesday night with only a few open tables. The bar area was empty but could easily hold a few happy-hourers.

The service was great, good date night venue.

Oktoberfest

Sep
23
Shoo, it was hot this weekend at Oktoberfest. (I was there during the day on Saturday.) It was the usual lineup of all things German and a few carnival rides for the kids.  

Lots of people were in from out of town and a large number of them took photos of the large inflatable Budweiser bottle at Broadway & Fifth. I hope they took pics of other things while they were here.

"Oh hell no, I GOT to see Peyton Manning!"

Aug
31

This was shouted by a gentleman chasing three luxury motor coaches complete with police escort as they arrived in front of the Westin hotel last night just before 7.

Sometimes I forget that celebrities come to Cincinnati all the time. Now if we could just get that MLS team going...

Jet Lag

Aug
29
I used to think jet lag was a myth. Especially for domestic travel. It's just a 3 hour difference... cowboy up! This weekend's trip west appears to have had no effect. Unless you count the fact that I've been at least one hour early or late to every appointment since then.

Or Am I Not Paranoid Enough?

Jul
11

I've decided to go back for my MBA since work will reimburse me for a couple classes each year.

Note to self: Even though the summer catalogue of classes says the class is Tuesday & Thursday, always double check. Lesson learned last night when I arrived for class 24 hours late.
