Mardi Gras, 'naked' trees & trivia

COVINGTON, Ky. – Did you know that the first recorded Mardi Gras street parade in New Orleans took place in 1837? Decades later, six men organized a rather clandestine Mistick Krewe of Comus and held a parade with the theme, “The Demon Actors in Milton’s Paradise Lost” and held a lavish ball. Demons on parade. Now that’s something to behold. Some theories maintain ...

‘Black’ wines, Sara Mackie & Pysanka

COVINGTON, Ky. – The Super Bowl is over. Too soon for March Madness. Valentines’ Day came and went. The weather, in a word, is gloomy. The ground’s too frozen to till, and the water is too cold to paddle (for most of us). However, there’s no need to despair at home. Here in the The Cov, even a light weekend calendar has fun to be had, starting tonight: 'Black&#...

V-Day & Who Dey

COVINGTON, Ky. – All of you happily in love couples better hope our neighbors to the north win the big game on Sunday. If not, the region’s collective depression, dejection and discouragement would make it a little difficult to celebrate with enthusiasm Monday, the day the candy-and-card industry has set aside for love and romance. (We’re confident, of course. The way we se...

Belly dancing & ‘bundles’

COVINGTON, Ky. – The odds of you wanting to leave your house this weekend are slim. We get it. We’d just as soon stay put too. Make a fire, grab a book, drink hot chocolate, or warm up with bourbon. But … we have a job to do, and that job is to inform you of the always cool, wonderful, entertaining, tasty, and just plain overall worthwhile things to do in The Cov, come wee...

Trivia, tunes & Tagalongs®

COVINGTON, Ky. – Why is January soooo long? And cold? And gray? And why does Mercury have to be retrograde now? Ugh. (Insert “woe is me” emoji here). Enough. Time to get out and enjoy the (last) weekend of this seemingly endless month (finally). If cookie and beer pairings can’t jolt us out of winter doldrums, then what on earth possibly can? Perhaps a classic stor...

The Bengals & Betty White

COVINGTON, Ky. – Did you know that raindrops are actually just tears from angels crying over the death of Betty White? At least that’s our theory. We’re still in mourning over the death of the beloved actress Dec. 31, just 17 days shy of her 100th birthday.   If you are too, you’ll be interested in knowing that there are two (2!) events in Latonia this weekend...

Kitty Curio & Montana Banana

COVINGTON, Ky. – The holiday tree is dropping needles, the mulled wine is gone, Omicron is exploding, the air is bitter, and a little bit of snow is falling (and not the snowman-building kind, just the pain-in-the-broken-wrist kind) … Fortunately, we have two things going for us: One, the Snow and Ice Team out at Public Works is about the best there is when it comes to keeping C...

Admission is free on Sunday, Jan. 2, for Covington residents at Behringer-Crawford Museum, just in time to explore BCM’s holiday exhibits. “We have our Holiday Toy Trains, our LEGO® exhibit...

Blue(s) Christmas & cheer

COVINGTON, Ky. – We know there’s a lot more going on in The Cov this weekend than what we’ve listed here. We also know that most of the best things that are happening are likely taking place in the comfort of your home as you celebrate the holidays. But in case you’d like to get out and about and partake in some neighborhood cheer before the stockings are emptied and the...

‘Ugly’ sweaters, reindeer games & BJJ

COVINGTON, Ky. – It’s that wonderful time of the year: Christmas carols, spiked eggnog, twinkling lights … and invites to parties that require – no, DEMAND – that you wear the ugliest sweater in your closet. And if by chance you have more than one ugly sweater, why not wear them to all the cool events going on in The Cov this weekend? There’s … a h...
