Hi I’m Tiff of Tiff in the Morning on Kiss 1071 (heard weekdays 6-10a on iHeartRadio)
I do a lot of things alone…As someone who lived solo in city of Cincy for 4 years I’ve got this down to a science. Join me for tips on how to enjoy experiences alone during various activities…
Tonight I went to a comedy show/dinner at OTR eatery at the DT Kroger. Its centrally located in the city and the atmosphere lends itself to causal conversation, good food, and… grocery shopping if needed.
*Bonus Tiff tip: grocery shopping is a great conversation starter.
For this type of setting my number one recommendation is to sit and chat with the bartender, it’s not groundbreaking, but it’s a great start. Bartender who are not busy are often open to chatting, sharing recommendations, and will often bridge the gap to other people solo in the bar.
Easy questions to start:
“What do you recommend on tap?”
“What’s a typical night here look like?”
“ What else happens at this place, that I might like?”
My second recommendation is; If you find common ground with someone, exchange Instagram handles. This eliminated having to exchanges numbers with someone who don’t really care about (yet.)
*Bonus Tiff tip: FOLLOW UP! That’s my secret sauce, if I meet you and we hit it off, I will reach out and DM within a day or two. I never wait for someone to come to me, its nothing personal, but people get caught in their busy schedules.
My final recommendation is… just do it. You usually wont regret the experience, but it’s natural for your mind to talk you out of it… hell! Our body literally protects us from things that are uncomfortable.
*bonus Tiff tip: I usually tell myself “Stay for 30 mins Tiff, then you can decide.”
Everything Cincy has loads of things to get you started … she does all the research, so you don’t have too, then stop by Tiff in the Morning Tuesday 9:20 for tips of the week.
As a ‘Major Party Town’, there’s no surprise we Cincinnatians love a good party like St. Patrick’s Day. And, seeing as the holiday falls on a Friday this year AND coincides with the first round of March Madness, it’s sure to be a great time.

The invitation only beer festival taking place this Saturday, November 19th at Fowling Warehouse Cincinnati, has announced the final list of breweries that will be showcased at the event. Twenty-three breweries from Greater Cincinnati will be attending with many of those bringing multiple beer selections.
“Beer, Booze & Bonks!”, is unique to our area. Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky breweries can only attend if they are chosen by the event committee. Further, committee members then choose the best beer, seltzer or spirit, in their opinion, that these breweries produce to be showcased at “Beer, Booze & Bonks!”. The committee is headed by The Gnarly Gnome and includes several beer and brewery thought leaders from the region.
The exclusive, invite-only, list of Cincinnati Breweries and distilleries is set to feature local favorites like Third Eye Brewing, Streetside, Fibonacci, Nine Giant, Cartridge, High Grain, Dogberry and West Side Brewing. It’s rare to find this collection of breweries and the exclusive beers chosen all in one place.
The event is open to the public and tickets include the ability to sample all breweries and their beers. Tickets also include unlimited Fowling and one beverage from the infamous “Mystery Beer Machine”, which lets fate decide which libation you’ll be enjoying. Food trucks and vendors will be on-site. The event will also be supporting Big Brothers Big Sisters, who will be pouring beers and collecting donations.
“Beer, Booze & Bonks” will be held on Saturday, November 19th at Fowling Warehouse Cincinnati. Fowling Warehouse Cincinnati is also home to the regions first and only Cincy Seltzer Fest and the Official Bengals Tailgate Watch Parties for 2022. Fowling Warehouse has 47,000 square feet of event space and Fowling will be included with entry. Tickets and more information can be found at: http://www.cincyticket.com/bonks2022

August 5 is International Beer Day, so to celebrate the occasion, we are filling you up with all the local beer knowledge you need to get out and enjoy all of the wonderful brewery and beer options our great city has to offer.
What makes a brewery great is so much more than just having good beer. Sure, that helps, but there are so many other qualities that go into a taproom to make it stand out. The overall taproom experience includes the ambiance, food options, and other events and “amenities” (like having games and being kid or even dog friendly). The good thing? Cincinnati has an abundance of great craft breweries.

MadTree, Rhinegeist, Rebel Mettle, Urban Artifact, Sonder, Third Eye, March First and Karrikin are all bringing some incredible seltzer flavors for everyone to sample”, said Owner of Fowling Warehouse, Joe Frank.
