This month’s HAPPY MOUTH outing was selected by Drew. A large group of us went to Slim’s Restaurant in Northside for a dinner of ecclectic American dishes… Real comfortable food, to quote their press materials.
Angel, Jay, John, Robin, Dave, Holly, Ed, Wendy, and Drew enjoyed our meals quite a bit!
I like walks on the beaches, the sand in my crack, and I like ice cream and moonbeams. I live alone with a dog who keeps me company. But I am seeking the one I can love and slap nasties with. I have hope to find this person. Maybe it’s you?
Jean-Robert de Cavel (center, in the Pigall’s kitchen) says he’s happy with four stars, but the question now is, ‘Do we want to go for five stars?’
Cincinnati may have lost its most visible national award-winning restaurant when Mobil five-star winner Maisonette closed in July, but there is now a four-star restaurant downtown.Â
Jean-Robert at Pigall’s has earned that rating from the Mobil Travel Guide.
“I’m very proud about it, proud for my staff. I am extremely happy,” says owner Jean-Robert de Cavel. “Getting four stars was one of our goals.”
Not as rare as the top five-star rating, which went to only 15 restaurants nationwide, four stars are still a distinction. Four stars were bestowed on 119 restaurants across the country. Pigall’s is the only four-star restaurant in Ohio, Kentucky or Indiana. The Cincinnatian Hotel, downtown, received four stars for lodging. There are no five-star winners in the three states.
Alignment: Neutral Good characters believe in the power of good above all else. They will work to make the world a better place, and will do whatever is necessary to bring that about, whether it goes for or against whatever is considered ‘normal’.
Race: Humans are the ‘average’ race. They have the shortest life spans, and because of this, they tend to avoid the racial prejudices that other races are known for. They are also very curious and tend to live ‘for the moment’.
Primary Class: Rangers are the defenders of nature and the elements. They are in tune with the Earth, and work to keep it safe and healthy.
Secondary Class: Paladins are the Holy Warriors. They have been chosen by a God/dess to be their representative on Earth, and must follow the code of that deity, or risk severe penalties. They tend towards being righteous, but not generally to excess.
Deity: Mielikki is the Neutral Good goddess of the forest and autumn. She is also known as the Lady of the Forest, and is the Patron of Rangers. Her followers are devoted to nature, and believe in the positive and outreaching elements of it. They use light armor, and a variety of weapons suitable for hunting, which they are quite skilled at. Mielikki’s symbol is a unicorn head.
