Just wanted to add something random to Darrin's post from earlier regarding the insanity that is Newport's new jewel, "The Ft. Thomas Krogers." ***
Nothing really more can be said, especially if you were brave enough to part the sea of people for those free samples of Boar's Head turkey with the pretzel toothpick (and don't pretend like you didn't partake) - it was nuts.
I went twice this weekend. Once at about 3:00 on Friday and again after the Bengals game on Sunday for groceries.
I was impressed. I was even more impressed that with all that was going on in the store, Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus were hanging out in the furniture area and not a person was paying attention to them. I think there was just too much to see.
Anyway, before I go any further in my postings, allow myself to introduce... myself. Mark Collier, born and raised in Fort Thomas. Graduated from Highlands in 2001 and UK in 2005.
I'll leave it at that for now. I hope I can add to your Fort Thomas Matters experience. Now go get to the Fort Thomas Krogers *** and hang out with Santa Claus. I think he's lonely.
*** Just wanted to point out that there is no "s" on the end of Kroger. I have been called out repeatedly by people in Lexington and Louisville for doing this. Must be a Fort Thomas thing.
