At the 25th Annual Taste of Colerain in 2014, Rick's Tavern & Grille took home the honor of "Best Entree" for its baby back ribs. To some, the ribs might have been a revelation?but the accolade was no surprise to the tavern's throng of loyal fans. Since opening in 1996, RT&G has stood as a go-to hangout in the greater Cincinnati area. Beyond the ribs, the tavern serves specialty sandwiches and fresh angus burgers that have never been frozen or cryogenically preserved. All the while, Rick's keeps guests entertained with more than 50 flat-screen TVs and live music every weekend.
The instructors at T3 Fitness and Training employ a variety of tools to help melt the pounds off of their clients. During hour-long boot-camp and boxing-for-fitness classes, students jump rope, push around oversized tires, lift barbells, and punch bags while wearing boxing gloves or bowling balls on their hands. The instructors also give clients one-on-one attention during personal-training sessions and take time to teach children about the importance of proper fitness and health.
At Cincinnati Gymnastics, Olympic coach Mary Lee Tracy and a staff of dedicated instructors help kids realize their athletic potential with expert guidance in gymnastics. Kids aged from three to seven build acrobatic abilities at an early age through classes and camps that hone skills on the vault, bars, balance beam, and floor.
The slick wooden rink at Skate America offers groups a good, old-fashioned roller-skating experience.

Other entertainment options include a bounce area for kids under 48 inches. After a few turns about the rink, skaters can relax with a menu of grub that includes pizza, pretzels, and cotton candy.
