      Best Super Bowl Commercials for 2019

      Posted by Allison on Feb 4, 2019 5:15:00 PM

      “Okurrrrrt” It’s the day after the Super Bowl LIII and by now you should know the New England Patriots beat the L.A. Rams at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. You should also know that the game was not the most exciting and it was actually the lowest scoring Super Bowl game in history. The halftime show featured Maroon 5, Travis Scott, and SpongeBob SquarePants. That’s right. SpongeBob. Many fans begged to have the song “Sweet Victory” featured after SpongeBob’s creator/animator Stephen Hillenburg, passed away last year. SpongeBob did make a small cameo right before Travis Scott’s performance. The game finished with the Patriots winning and Tom Brady taking home another Super Bowl victory.

      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.

      Best Original Shows to Stream on Netflix, Hulu & Amazon Prime

      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.
