Converging

Friends from two different states come over for dinner. A rare treat as folks don’t normally plan visits to Cincinnati very often. But they should. You should. It’s nice. If you’re reading this, you know someone here.

Jim & Elise

The best thing I can think to offer friends fresh from a long haul on the road is comfortable seating.

Jim (seated right) might have in St. Louis: the Arch, the Budweiser Clydesdales, toasted ravioli, and slingers… But we have IKEA here in Cincinnati. And that means inexpensive furniture and meatballs.
