Tour de Cincinnati, Week 1

A self-proclaimed Cincinnati enthusiast, I like to think I know a reasonable amount about this great city.

Unashamedly a Phillip Phillips Phangirl

Having watched about half of the seasons of American Idol, it is great to see this season’s winner stray from the standard vocal powerhouse in favor of a musically gifted modern-day crooner. Sure, his vocal abilities aren’t technically sound, but where his intonation is lacking, he makes up for in raw musical and songwriting talent. […]

Visit to New Yankee Stadium

Not only was I fortunate enough to have visited the MLB Fan Cave during my trip to the Big Apple, I also had the opportunity to attend a game in which my two favorite teams played. I grew up a Yankees fan but also love the Cincinnati Reds, and having never been to New Yankee […]
