      For some of us, Cincinnati is our home town and others loved it so much, they had to stay. Whatever the case may be, Cincinnatians have so much support for the place we call home.

      Cincinnati Ranked #2 City for Nightlife in the Country

      Posted by Brianna on Jan 30, 2019 2:30:00 PM

      Cincinnati is known for a lot of things. Chili-cheese coneys, flying pigs, and of course, Geotta. Cincinnati has the crosstown basketball game, Fiona at the zoo, King’s Island amusement park, and Findlay Market. When you think of Cincinnati, though, do you think of nightlife?

      When I think of cities with great nightlife, I think of cities like New York, Las Vegas, Chicago, and Los Angeles. In the past, I haven’t included Cincinnati in the group of major night life cities. However, that is about to change.

      Posted by Allison on Jan 22, 2019 10:45:41 AM

      This time of year is perfect for streaming Netflix, Hulu & Amazon Prime Video. The cold air mixed with the short days makes a perfect combination for binge watching your favorite shows. Once I get the time to actually sit down and get comfortable, I am always asking myself “What do I want to watch?”  This starts a long process of me clicking through all the options and flipping back and forth from Netflix to Prime, Prime to Hulu, and Hulu back to Netflix. Sometimes it feels like it takes more time to look up a good show or movie to watch than it actually takes to watch the show.
