I write like it's my job - because it is! I have a Master's in English and love words: crossword puzzles, Scrabble games, Wordle, and, of course, good, old-fashioned books.
I'm a writer and editor at OnlyInYourState, and a contributing writer at Cincinnati Magazine. I love the Great Outdoors and am endlessly awestruck by this beautiful country of ours. Coffee keeps me going, yoga keeps me sane, my kids keep me grounded, and my writing keeps me inspired.
Kentucky is known for bourbon and barbecue, and while there are many places in the Bluegrass where one can go for a killer bourbon margarita or even barbecue tacos, our state isn’t exactly known for classic Mexican cuisine. So when we say we’ve found the best empanadas in the state — at a Northern Kentucky tiki bar of all places — you know it’s a dish worth seeking out.
Have you been to Kon-Tiki on the Levee before? Did you know this Northern Kentucky tiki bar served the best empanadas in the state? Ché’s empanadas are truly on another level, and the perfect compliment to a tropical cocktail!
