Chinese Lanterns

We checked out the Ohio Chinese Lantern Festival a few weeks ago and were once again blown away! Located at the Natural Resources Park (Ohio Expo Center), we were impressed by 39 larger-than-life illuminated displays crafted by Chinese artisans.

Oddfellows Brunch

Oddfellows in the Short North is one of my favorite spots in the city. I don’t think its just one thing that draws me in. Its the combination of the decor which includes a historic back bar manufactured in Cincinnati in 1906 and a bottle cooler from the late 1930s, a long […]
