"Red Tree Gallery & Cafe"
Red Tree is a newly relocated art gallery in Oakley that has added a cafe and shop, all under the same roof on Madison Road. See my 11/13/09 article in the Weekend section of the Cincinnati Enquirer for details. We stopped by their opening-night party for the November art exhibit last night and chatted with Wendy Smith, the gallery's owner. It's a comfy place to hang out with coffee and your laptop, and in a great location near Oakley shops and restaurants. Photo of the lunch my friend & I had there is above -- quiche, soup and a wrap.
Here's a way to find good places to eat when you're traveling. It's (appropriately) called Find Eat Drink, a website and an iPhone app. (I have a Droid but also an iPad, and hope it will work on the pad) Click on photo for link.
At the University of Cincinnati, I teach writing, reporting and research methods to journalism students as well as a course in mass communication.
I also write a "Healthy Foodie" column, with co-author Mary Ann Barnes, M.D., for the magazine Whole Living Journal, which is distributed in the Cincinnati metro area.
I'm a freelance food and travel writer, a dedicated exercise fanatic (have been since my 20s) and an avid gardener, reader, cook and moviegoer. I'm live in Cincinnati with my husband, George, and recently lost my sweet mother, who died peacefully at 91.
