This weekend yelp.com reviews

December 24th, 2012 · No Comments

I went to a classic restaurant that’s almost preserved in amber. I went shooting at a new range that was very nice…and run by the government. And, finally, I failed to play defense and went to a TGI Fridays. You can find all my yelp.com reviews here or at my profile howardmcewen.yelp.com.

My Yelp.com review of The Trendy Gardener

May 21st, 2012 · No Comments

The original is here. So my wife is a flower nut. From spring till fall there is a row of various gardening items lining our sidewalk in what I term the “to be planted” line. The Trendy Gardener will be making that line a bit longer. I love a gardening store in an urban area. […]

My Yelp.com review of Cincy by the Slice

May 21st, 2012 · No Comments

The original is here. An old friend of mine use to say pizza is like sex. Even bad pizza is ok. My wife tells me this is a very male thing to say. However, Cincy by the slice is not bad sex. It’s AOK. I did like their stone baked crust. It gave an extra […]

My Yelp review of Field of Vue Art

May 21st, 2012 · No Comments

The original is here. I rate this place 5 stars which according to yelp means “Woohoo! As good as it gets!” However, I’m not quite sure what the ‘it’ in this case is. Field of Vue is an eclectic shop of various art and craft works and garden and plant items. It is my wife’s […]

My yelp.com review of Streetpops

May 7th, 2012 · No Comments

Find the original here. This place should be a new Cincinnati institution. Street pops now has a store front. It’s the old Fork-Heart-Knife location and the charm of F-H-K seems to have carried over to S-P-. This is simply a great popsicle. I went Friday and Sunday! On Friday I had a spicy orange honey […]

My yelp.com review of Ruby Tuesday

May 7th, 2012 · No Comments

The original you can find here. My family instituted a rule long ago when the kids were little: no one is allowed to order chicken fingers and french fries. No one is allowed to dumb down their taste buds. This has turned the family into a critiquing group of foodies. My oldest daughter is the […]

Yelp Review: Herb and Thelma’s

August 27th, 2010 · No Comments

Here’s my Yelp review of Herb and Thelma’s: You have to be brave. Herb and Thelma’s isn’t the most welcoming from the outside.  The building is old, the neighborhood may look iffy to out-of-towners, but if you have the courage to hop off I-75 turn right on Pike, drive up a hill, and step onto […]

Yelp Review: Rio Grande Mexican

August 27th, 2010 · No Comments

Here’s my Yelp review of Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant: Rio Grande is my family’s restaurant choice when we’re thinking budget.  Here’s how to eat cheaper and better than McD’s.  Call up Rio Grande, order the Fajita special and make it a double.  It easily feeds my family of 4. It’s easily the most favor you’ll […]

Yelp Review: Schneider’s Sweet Shop

August 27th, 2010 · No Comments

Here’s my Yelp review of Schneider’s Sweet Shop: I really don’t like this place.  I’ve lived near it for over 10 years, but I find the staff to be rude and grumpy. The candies and ice cream are fine, I guess but I can take a short drive elsewhere and get the sweets without the […]
