'Pound This' & Pixar

Posted By

COVINGTON, Ky. - If this weird weather has you falling out of sorts, then fall back into them by getting out into LoveTheCov this weekend. (We just made that up, but logically speaking, if you can fall out, you can fall back in, right?)

 
How?
 
There’s a trivia contest, a fashion show, the recording of a popular live podcast, a wine and food pairing, live music, a theater production, a citrus sale and so on and so on.
 
Make Life Move
Are you a fan of the “Pound This” podcast?
 
Host Amanda Valentine will perform a live episode on Saturday at Braxton Brewing Co., where she will share the secrets of keeping your New Year’s resolutions and reaching your fitness goals. (BTW, she’s down 117 pounds and counting ... all through healthy lifestyle changes.)
 
It’s the second part of Braxton’s Make Life Move 2020 Party.
 
Info, HERE.
 
In style
Shop local boutiques and businesses and gain insight on new styles with the “New Year/New You!” fashion show Friday at The Madison Event Center.
 
Enjoy complimentary champagne, a swag bag, refreshments, a photo booth, and of course fabulous fashion. Info, HERE.
 
Trivia trivia trivia
Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars?
 
That’s a lot of ground to be responsible for in a trivia contest, but Keystone Bar & Grill intends to cover it with its Disney+ Trivia contest this Friday.
 
We’d say start binge-watching, but heck, you probably already watched all those movies 10 times each anyway.
 
Oh, and costumes are encouraged. Details, HERE.
 
If you like wine ...
More specifically, if you want to try wines made by some of the most prominent women of the wine-making world ... then head to Lisse Steakhuis on Friday evening, where executive chef Nick Amshoff has paired such wines with five delicious courses.
 
But act quickly. You have to email the restaurant to reserve your seat.
 
Details, HERE.
 
Madison music
Check out the music menu at arguably Covington’s best music venue(s) this weekend.
 
On Saturday, it’s pop singer-songwriter Tyler Jarvis (from Atlanta, by way of Cincinnati) with guests Abby Holliday and Cory Breth at Madison Live! Info and tickets, HERE.
Then get in the groove Sunday with the seven-piece Boston-based funk band Ripe at the Ripe National Tour 2020 at Madison Theater. Tickets, HERE.
 
Covington Farmers Market
Why be boring? This is the fresh and fun way to shop for groceries (and do your weekly meal prep), while supporting local at the same time.
 
Baked goods, pastries, coffee, and more, Saturday morning at Braxton Brewing Co. This week? Live music by Kate Wakefield.
 
Info, HERE.
