Ford Theater Reunion’s New Album

  Here on the Charlie Tonic Hour, we’ve never been shy about our support and enthusiasm for the Lexington based band Ford Theater Reunion. I don’t know if it’s their unique sound, the passion they put into their music, or just because they are clearly cooler than us but still let us...

Afternoon Delight Cocktail

With Arrested Development and a discussion of Marijuana legalization coming up in Episode 76 this week, I just couldn’t resist finding a drink that would tie the two items together. What better than an “afternoon delight?” This was a drink where I thought of the name and knew there must be...

Queen City Drinks One Year Anniversary Party

Little bit late since this event was a week ago but still an amazing night and I wanted to share a few pictures. This post originally ran on Queen City Drinks last Saturday. Enjoy! I just wanted to post a few pictures that Charlie and I took at the Queen City Drinks one-year anniversary party. I don’t...

Hellapalooza at The Southgate House Revival.

  Thank you to everyone who came out to Hellapalooza at The Southgate House Revival and who took the time to stop by the Tonic Tours table. It was an unforgettable night for sure. Switchblade Syndicate rocked hard, opening the night with a cover of Hells Bells and playing several more times over the...

Ignite Cincinnati #9

  Sometimes you have to go looking for cool things in Cincinnati and sometimes you just get lucky and a friend drags you to one. The later is what happened to me last night. A friend of a friend was speaking at Ignite Cincinnati #9 and she bribed me with drink tickets if I would go with her. As we...

Savor the Season at Gorman Farms

I just wanted to say to everyone who stopped by the Tonic Tours table at Savor the Season. Gorman Farm is a beautiful place and it was a wonderful way to spend the day. I especially enjoyed setting up next to the lovely interns from Turner Farm and getting to try some new herbs I’d never heard of...

Kickstarter and Creativity

This week on Episode 71, Charlie and I will discuss the ways that comic creators and other creative types are using Kickstarter to fund their projects and make a living. You can hear our thoughts on the subject on Wednesday but in the mean time here are a few of the projects we mentioned and one of them is...

Dutch’s Bar, Bottle Shop, & Larder

  After hearing many good things about Dutch’s Bar & Bottle Shop from both our beer friends and from our foodie friends, Charlie and I decided to finally stop by for dinner and a beer last Friday night. It was quite an experience and took some getting used to but in the end I was so impressed...

Kink and Cream: Kinky Liqueur Cocktail

  In honor of Episode 69, Charlie and I decided to do an all-sexy themed show. The bulk of the show will be a discourse intercourse featuring the naughty comics I found at S.P.A.C.E. followed by the panel I did at last year’s Steampunk Empire Symposium on Victorian Erotica (with readings by...

Slow Food Happy Hour at Maribelle’s

Last night Charlie and I had a great night. And by that I mean of course that we spent time somewhere with good food, excellent drinks, and lovely individuals. Slow Food Cincinnati hosted a happy hour at Maribelle’s Eat + Drink in Oakley for its members and supporters. Sharon from Eggplant to Go was...

The Seeker Wines: Better Red than Dead

Those of you who know The Charlie Tonic Hour know that we know our way around booze and we know our way around steampunks. So it is fitting that we first discovered The Seeker Wines through the steampunk world. Our friend and college Professor Charles Duncan is a representative for Seeker Wines and he also...

Yard House on the Banks

Sometimes life just smiles on you. Friday night I was very pleased to be able to attend the preview party for the new Yard House restaurant here in Cincinnati. The Banks have really started to come alive and after enjoying an evening there with friends I can say that this restaurant is a great addition to...

Chart Ratings and Youtube

On Episode 65 of The Charlie Tonic Hour, Charlie and I discuss recent changes to the way that Billboard Magazine ranks songs for the Top 100 list. If you haven’t heard, just a few weeks ago Billboard started including YouTube views into its formula for ranking the most popular songs. This continues...

Honey Buzz

On this week’s episode of Bottoms Up, Charlie and I reviewed Domaine De Canton, a wonderful ginger liqueur from France. This is a very high quality liqueur that makes a wonderful bottle for both professional and amateur mixologists. It has a very clean flavor, lightly sweet and with a really wonderful...

Cincinnati Magic Trick

Longtime listeners of the Charlie Tonic Hour may remember a film festival and awards show we attended back in July of 2012. We podcasted about it in episode #30 and Ginny write about it in the article titled “The 48 Hour Film Project Awards Show“. Since that time, the winning film “Magic...
