The Great American Ballpark has met the Midwest’s amusement park this summer! New to King’s Island this year is the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame Grille. It is a full-service, sit-in restaurant and bar in the Riverton area of the park (which is near Diamondback, White Water Canyon, and at the edge of Planet Snoopy, though you really can’t miss it).Beat the heat in their refreshing air-conditioned building, and get your fill of sports while you consume some of the most quality food in the park! Enjoy a meal with ribs, burgers, and wraps, while being surrounded by authentic Reds memorabilia and about twenty television sets airing ESPN. You can also learn some of the rich history of the team from the seventy-five Hall of Fame plaques honoring the players and management, along with jerseys, photos and more dating back to the first professional baseball team in the 1800’s. Also available is a ticket kiosk where you can buy and print tickets for your next trip to the Great American Ballpark. You can also dine out on their patio that overlooks the Diamondback ride. If you’re a member of the Reds Hall of Fame, or have a gold or platinum pass to the park, there’s even more for you to enjoy, including half-off an appetizer when ordering two entrees. Thrills certainly connect at Kings Island; and this summer, the thrills of local baseball and adrenaline-pumping coasters have joined to add even more to your summer fun in southwestern Ohio.
Relaxing in good company with good music playing in the background is a great way to wind down at the end of the day. The gentle sounds of the piano soothe away the stresses of the day like no other music, which is why piano bars have been so popular as places to recharge the batteries for many years.
Piano bars around the world have their regular clientele and a few visitors who pop in to shake off the day and make a pleasant start to the evening. You probably have your own favourite near you. But if you are away from home and want to hear those soothing piano sounds, it can be tough trying to find a place to suit your mood. So, here are five of the world’s best piano bars that are guaranteed to delight your soul.
Harry’s New York Bar, Paris
This iconic American-style bar in Paris is a favourite with office workers as well as being a must visit bar for tourists. Ernest Hemmingway and Jean-Paul Sartre downed some of Harry’s famous cocktails here and George Gershwin composed “An American in Paris’ in its underground piano bar. Patrons enjoy the sounds of the resident pianist nightly and the jazz concerts that are held twice a week.
You can enjoy a great cocktail as you relax in the London Piano Bar at Boisdale of Bishopsgate, which is popular with the locals from the nearby business district. And after your cocktails and you are ready to face the rest of the evening, the sumptuous steaks and Scottish-themed food from the restaurant with the promise of more musical entertainment make Boisdale the place to go to wind down after a hard day or just for a great night out.
Las Cuevas Del Sesamo, Madrid
If sangria, a local punch that is made from wine and brandy with fruit and a sweetener, is your drink then Las Cuevas Del Sesamo is the place for you, as its sangria is said to be the best in Madrid. This popular cave bar is always buzzing with the sound of conversation while the resident musician plays soothing melodies.
Piano Bar, Los Angeles
From modest beginnings, the British-themed Piano Bar in the heart of Hollywood has become a favourite haunt for lovers of good live music. With top quality piano music daily and a regular flow of guest musicians, the Piano Bar has a lively, but low-key, atmosphere that keeps the regulars going back for more.
L’Absinthe Bar, Antibes
Aptly named for the huge variety of absinthe on offer, L’Absinthe boasts fountains, a hat collection and vintage posters to delight the eye while sounds of the piano linger delightfully in the background. This stone-vaulted basement bar located in the market area of Antibes has a casual, relaxed atmosphere that attracts locals and visitors alike.

Everything is bigger in New York City-the buildings, the crowds, the traffic congestion, and now Apple’s newest retail store. According to the Wall Street Journal, Apple opened a new store in the Grand Central Terminal in Manhattan, New York last week at 10am on Friday, December 9th. This makes the fifth Apple store in New York City and one of three-hundred worldwide. It overlooks the main concourse on the east and northeast balconies. According to Apple, 2,500 people awaited the store’s grand opening and had received nearly 4,000 visitors before noon. To date, this is the biggest of Apple’s stores; spanning 23,000 square feet.
While the store itself has all the necessities of your typical Apple store, aesthetically it’s conformed to the style of the historical landmark. One feature very unique to this store would be the fifteen minute” express classes” on the use of Apple’s products. These classes are intended for commuters who are looking to kill time between departures. Also offered through iPhone apps are self-checkout and personal pick-up services for the customers on the go.
Even though Apple is not sharing revenues (unlike other venders in the building) with the Metropolitan Transit Authority- the company owning the Grand Central Terminal- they believe Apple’s presence quadruples rent and will strongly increase foot traffic to other retailers in the same area. Apple is shelling out $180 per square foot over their ten year lease on the space. Apple’s bill for the commercial space also includes paying $5 million to buy out the lease of the prior tenant, $1.1 million for yearly rent, and $2.5 million for construction. This is certainly a big bite for the big apple! The next time you’re experiencing the enormous grandeur of the city that never sleeps, stop by Grand Central and see Apple’s huge new store for yourself!
So we have all herd of the “Fullbar” that is supposed to keep you from overeating. The question is, “Does it really work?” I decided to test the Fullbar out to see if it truly lives up to what it says it does. Upon opening the wrapper before eating the Fullbar I noticed that it is pretty much puffy cereal all stuck together with soy or wheat or something that can hold it in the bar format. One has to ask how it is any different from a breakfast bar, am I right? I decided to give it a chance anyway, after all it could be the best weight loss solution ever made. I ate the bar and drank more water than required, just to make sure that the effects would be applied. The idea is that the water makes the cereal like puffs blow up and get bigger while in your stomach, therefore filling more space and making you less hungry.
I went to dinner the first day, after waiting thirty minutes after consuming a fullbar of course, and found that I ate pretty much the same amount as always. The next day I did the same, only I did eat about one plate less. Keep in mind a plate for me consist of a few spoonfuls of rice and a breadstick or something to that effect. Ok, so one plate less isn’t too bad, but I would have to buy box after box of these things in order to lose weight, right? Pretty much, over time you can lose weight with the full bar, but personally I think you would be able to get similar results with a bag of dry cereal and a lot of bottled water. It may have just been my experience with the Fullbar that was disappointing, but I think the price for no more than you get isn’t worth it.
