I've Been A Bad, Bad Blogger

The thing about getting a boyfriend - my life is an utter whirlwind.

And I wouldn't have it any other way.

The past week alone has ushered a few fantastic things that you should try and check out if you can:

Showboat Majestic and Arsenic And Old Lace. Starring none other than Stephen Samuels as lead character Mortimer Brewster. If you've ever seen a Skyline Chili commercial, then you've seen Stephen.

This OtR resident is dear friend of mine (he cooks up a mean chicken breast), and I had no idea his theatrical talents have been featured on Friends, Saved By the Bell, Married With Children and Who's The Boss. You can check out this great thespian at Showboat Majestic through July 1. Tickets are about $20 per person.

Last week, we also had the pleasure of enjoying the Cincinnati Opera's Pagliacci and Gianni Schicchi. Much of the city's cultural community is buzzing about the company's next performance - Porgy and Bess takes the stage at Music Hall June 28 and 30, and July 6 and 8.

For tickets, ring the Cincinnati Opera Box office at 513-241-2742.

On Saturday, we headed to the Gateway Quarter for a late dinner. We've been hitting up Bakersfield almost once a week as of late (is there anything better than a few of their tacos and a pitcher of margaritas? At $22, that pitcher is one of the best deals in town), but we decided to cross the street and visit Senate for fancy franks (the all-beef variety) and truffle fries.

Senate is launching their Sunday brunch this coming weekend; if you intend on waiting it out for a table, I'd suggest killing time at 1215 Wine Bar and Coffee Lab. Their sparkling wine flight is a perfect treat for Sunday morning, and I can't get enough of their bread-and-oils plate (the truffle oil is especially delicious).

Tomorrow, I am heading to a shooting range with some fine folks from my office.

What? Me? Shooting guns? I know...

I'm going to try my hands at a .22, 9mm Glock, .45 Colt, and an Uzi. The guys have already told me to wear my cowboy boots, a pair of jeans, and a top that covers everything.

It turns out little bits of bullets go flying when you shoot, and the last thing you want is a hot piece of metal shooting down the front of your shirt.

Point made, and pictures to come.

And finally, this weekend brings with it a quick, one-night getaway for the sights and sounds of Big Money.

Luck be a lady on Friday night!
