Damme Van, It's Monday?
- The good news? The Cinco de Mayo Bash at Anita's Mexican Grill hosted by Fort Thomas Matters was an unabashed success. The place was absolutely full. There was a wait to get in almost all night. The drinks were flowing, the food was amazing and The Carter New Band sponsored by Tristate Fireworks were on point. All this with a miserable, rainy, ugly Sunday afternoon.
The bad news? Cinco de Mayo fell on a Sunday this year and it is now Monday. Van Damme!
On tap for this week on FortThomasMatters.com:
- Stephanie Class will be going to the Caketown Comedy Jam2 this weekend. It's hosted by Teri Foltz, who also happened to teach me English when I was a Senior at Highlands. She dun gud.
It also features Michael Rudolph, who was named Funniest Man in Cincinnati a few years back and is someone I "met" on Twitter and now can call a buddy. Weird how the world works now.
The event will take place Friday and Saturday at 8:00 at the Village Players Theatre and proceeds will benefit the Village Players and the Fort Thomas Women's Club.
- Pat Lafleur has a follow up article from his post last week which explained why Highlands was not ranked in the top 10 schools in Kentucky by US World News and Report. Reminder: Keep it respectful in the comments, guys. If you are unsure of our comment policy, refer to the comment I made on Friday.
- Remodeling? Renovating? Jessica Duke will have a feature on our current banner ad sponsor, Designer Ally and Lovell's Hardwood Flooring. They are in the same building. It's a one stop shop if you are looking to modernize and update your house. They are unbelievably talented and cannot be beat on price.
- Christian Moerline Brewing Company has signed on to be the official beer sponsor for the Merchants and Music Festival this year. Seems like momentum is building for this year's bash.
