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.

Once the turkey is eaten and the parade is over, what can you do with the rest of your holiday weekend? How about a fun and challenging scavenger hunt that takes you exploring through four Northern Kentucky neighborhoods?
The Finders Keepers Thanksgiving Weekend Scavenger Hunt is perfect for a family, couple or group of friends. With your Code Kit, you’ll have everything you need for up to four players. You can do the hunt any time between Thanksgiving morning and the evening of Sunday November 27th.
What the Hunt Entails
Put on your spectacles and thinking caps because the puzzles require sharp eyes and a clever mind. There are four neighborhoods included in the hunt: downtown Covington, MainStrasse Village, historic downtown Newport and Bellevue’s Fairfield Avenue entertainment district. Each neighborhood has several puzzles to solve, mostly based on the public art and architecture you’ll encounter.
You’ll find clues, crack codes and test your brain as you solve the puzzles and do the photo challenges. Submit your answers when you’re done, and you could win art from local artists and prizes from NKY businesses.
The puzzles are intended for smarty pants adults and kids ages 12 and up. Younger kids can help spot the clues and play in the park and open spaces included on the hunt.
Registration for Finders Keepers closes on November 18, so don’t delay. Reserve your Code Kit here. Proceeds help support the arts in NKY.
Covington has a rich history and parts of it are pretty spooky. To celebrate the Halloween season, two local women are teaming up to share these creepy secrets with the curious.
The Spooky Secrets walking tours are around 90 minutes long and start on Covington’s riverfront. They end in the MainStrasse Village neighborhood, where guests can remain for dinner or drinks or, if they prefer, they can walk back to the starting point with the tour guide.
Kathy Witt and Jill Morenz worked together to uncover the stories they share on the tours. Kathy Witt is the author of Secret Cincinnati, which highlights several dozen weird, wonderful or obscure places in Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati. Jill Morenz, Director of the NKY Public Arts Network, guides the tours.
What You Will See
During the 2-mile walk, you’ll learn the real identity of the Grey Lady of Carneal House and meet Captain Mary B. Greene, who meddled in the lives of her friends after she died. You’ll picture the chaos of a ravaged cemetery and find out why dogs won’t enter the basement of a former hospital. You’ll peek inside mystical and creepy shops and hear gory tales hiding behind things you see every day.
You will also receive a signed copy of Secret Cincinnati, as well as a special bookmark that serves as a checklist for the locations included in the book.
Tickets and Dates
If you love ghost stories, you’ll enjoy the Spooky Secrets tour! Individual tickets are $29.99 and include one book.
A pair of tickets costs $39.99 and includes one book for the two people to share. See available dates and purchase tickets here.
This will be the twelfth of these tours, which showcase the range of housing options in Northern Kentucky’s urban river cities, while encouraging you to explore the architecture, art and businesses that make the region so vibrant.
On the Tour
The October 2nd tour offers an exclusive peek inside more than a dozen interesting properties, including historic buildings, artsy renovations, cute bungalows and updated apartments. There will also be a few businesses on the tour that are using old buildings in new ways, such as an event venue in a “mansion” and a music performance space inside a decommissioned church.
As you walk along the pretty streets, you’ll come upon beautiful gardens, fun public art, quirky shops and inviting restaurants. Latonia is experiencing a rebirth, as new businesses open and young families move in.
Latonia was an independent town from 1896-1909, when it was annexed by Covington. It is probably best known for the Latonia Racetrack, which was located at the current site of the Latonia Shopping Center on Winston Ave. The first race held there was in 1883 and the Latonia Derby debuted in 1888.The track closed in 1939.
This Beyond the Curb tour starts at the Roost Latonia, a quirky shop that serves coffee and cocktails. They also have an ever-changing stock of vintage or vintage-inspired art, home décor items, apparel and toys. On tour day, you’ll pick up your tour booklet, wristband and event bag there.
Beyond the Curb tours are a fun way to get to know the river cities a little better and experience urban living, NKY-style. Learn more about the Latonia tour here.

September is Bourbon Heritage Month and Cincinnati is ready to celebrate!
Bourbon is a type of whiskey, but not all whiskeys are bourbon. In order to be bourbon, it must contain at least 51% corn in its mash, it must be aged in new, charred-oak barrels, and it must be stored at no more than 125 proof and bottled at no less than 80 proof. Though bourbon can technically be made anywhere in the US, 95% of the world’s bourbon is produced in Kentucky, our neighbor just to the south.
It is for that reason that we have a lot of great bourbon bars, events, and even bourbon-inspired foods in our area. Below is a comprehensive list of all things bourbon to try during Bourbon Heritage Month and beyond.
There are so many excellent bourbon-inspired menu items across the region. Here are a handful of suggestions of what to get at nearby local restaurants.
