Charles Behlow Professional Photography offers professional photography, video, and digital services for any occasion. To produce the photo-to-print miracle, a client sends in or uploads a picture, at which point a trained and certifiably tortured artist digitally modifies the image, renders it on fine-art-quality paper, and accents it with watercolors and oil paints according to the client's requests. The treatment adds an emotive touch to familiar people and places, making it an ideal way to preserve glowing memories and add realistic moustaches to your relatives. The studio can work from prints, digital photos, negatives, or slides, and the finished 11"x14" print is placed in a 16"x20” matte.

With 10 grandkids in her rolodex, Gramma Debbie is well-versed in cooking homestyle food to please the whole family. She sets up shop in Findlay Market, where she turns out housemade favorites such as meatloaf, which can be heated up and served at home, and stuffed peppers and asiago chicken burgers, which only need to be cooked before serving. Hot sides, such as macaroni and cheese and braised kale, are also at the ready, as are precooked meatballs made from pork, beef, or ground chicken and basmati rice, which Cincinnati Magazine declared "...unexpected, but seriously savory..." Cold items are also available, such as baked potato salad and cole slaw made with Gramma Debbie's slaw dressing.
When Jason Reser isn't pouring his energy into competitive mountain-bike racing and trail improvement, he's tending to his business?Reser Bicycle Outfitters, which was named one of America's best bike shops for 2013 by the National Bicycle Dealer Association. At two stores, one of which earned a Best Bike Shop recognition from Northern Kentucky Magazine in 2012, he leads a team of competitive cyclists, technicians, and fitting specialists certified by the Serotta International Cycling Institute. At the Over-the-Rhine location, staffers match customers to city-friendly bikes and accessories; at the Newport, Kentucky store, they instead oversee a stock specializing in sports-focused bikes. Their inventory encompasses brands such as BMC, Civia, Orbea, and Ridley. The technicians service all makes and models in onsite repair shops, treating bicycles with everything from basic tune-ups to major overhauls to unproductive psychotherapy sessions. They also measure customers and frames at more than 30 points and swap out parts to complete custom fittings.
Taste of Belgium follows an authentic family recipe to make its waffles out of thick dough and coarse Belgian beet sugar. A specialized cast-iron press then crushes the dough into its distinctive waffle shape and caramelizes the sugar in the process. This gives the waffle a rich vanilla flavor and a delightful sweetness that doesn't require syrup. As such, you can eat waffles on the go without plates, forks, or Catholic guilt.
