WEEKEND GUIDE: Our weekly, curated list of must-check-out activities. On the agenda for the next few days: a Startup Store, a Drinking Play, and a Dog Parade. Let's do this.
The original plan was to be a bottle shop — only. But when life hands you a bar... well, you open a bar. So that's what Tom Stephen, Jeremy Moore, and Garth Lieb decided to do. It's called Liberty's Bar & Bottle Shop. And it's located at 1427 Main St., just south of Liberty in Over the Rhine.

No longer will friends debate whether to go out for deep dish or thin crust; Pi Pizzeria serves both. Fresh out of Missouri, the regional pizza chain is bringing a little St. Louis flavor to the Queen City. And thus, you owe it to yourself to try a slice of Pi.

December is a time for eggnog, Christmas carols, and Santa suits. But the holiday month wouldn't be complete without a little dress up for our furry friends as well. That's right! The 25th annual Mt. Adams Reindog Parade took place on Saturday, Dec. 13, and I didn't think it was possible to be anymore in love with the canine species. But then this happened.

It’s no secret that exploring the natural beauty (and creature comforts) of Hocking Hills makes for a great time. But there’s a lesser-known treat waiting right at the Hocking Hills Regional Welcome Center. Let's pay a visit to this truly one-of-a-kind Buckeye State attraction.
Over three hundred million years ago, a meteor crashed into what would one day become Adams County, Ohio. Later (about 900 years ago), Native Americans built a massive mound in the crater left behind. Today, we know the earthwork as Serpent Mound. But there's so much about it we still don't know.
