Alabama Que – Barbecue
Southern Barbecue in the Mid West? You bet! Alabama Que serves up delicious, slow cooked meats, along with all your favorite BBQ sides, and a varied selection of iced teas. All of the meats are god, but our favorite are the smoky Turkey Tips.

Amma’s Kitchen – Indian
Amma’s Kitchen makes the most delicious Indian food in Cincinnati. You might be surprised that it’s all vegetarian – but you won’t miss the meat! Their dosas are spectacular, as is their Pangal rice dish.

Craving a plate of Pad Thai? Call up Ban Thai and they will deliver it to your room hot, and fresh. Their duck dishes are also delightful. In the mood for a few maki rolls too? Ban Thai also makes respectable sushi.

Cincy By The Slice – Pizza
No extra thin crusts or gourmet toppings like brie and arugula at this pizza joint. But if you’re looking for the classic, Brooklyn style pizza that is cut into giant slices, then this is the pizza place for you.

Meatball Kitchen – Italian
On a chilly winter’s night, nothing is as hearty and comforting as a meal from Meatball Kitchen. As the name suggests, this place is all about the balls. The menu here is pretty simple, you pick the protein source for your meatball, then choose to have them on top of a sandwich, pasta or a salad, then you choose your sauce. Meals here are very affordable, ranging from $7-$8 for mains.

Young’s Kitchen – Chinese
Fast, fresh, tasty, and inexpensive! All of these reasons are why we give Young’s Kitchen Chinese Food our stamp of approval. They delivery person will be at your door before you know it. Everything is made to order, and their egg rolls are hand rolled.

Packing Tips for the Big Move

Many of our guests stay with us while hunting for a new place to live, or while in between moving out of the old place and into the new. That’s why we’ve written up some of our favorite tips and tricks to make the moving process a little easier.

1. Make a Game Plan
It doesn’t matter if you have a month, a week, or a day to move. Start the process by coming up with a list of what you have to do, along with how long you have to do it. Then create a manageable timeline for getting everything done, and try your best to follow it. A timeline will keep you organized and help you stay on track, instead of procrastinating until the last minute.

2. Toss What You Don’t Want Before You Move
Many people end up moving junk from one home to another without ever finding a real place or use for it. This stuff, takes up valuable packing space and moving time. Before you box up your home, take some time to clean out your basement, junk drawers, closets and more for items you no longer need or use. If they are still in good condition, donate them – if not, toss them out!

3. Pack Strategically
It can be all to tempting to just grab a bunch of stuff and throw it into a box until its full. Take a few extra minutes to pack carefully, keeping things going into the same room or area (examples: kitchen and laundry rooms) together. It will truly make the move-in process much smoother and easier.

4. Label Everything
It’s such a simple tip, but labeling your boxes and bags can be a huge headache saver (especially if you follow our Strategic Packing tip). Keep a roll of masking tape and a marker with you at all times during the packing process. Don’t just label things ‘Bathroom’ or ‘Bedroom’ if you have a 2+ bedroom or bathroom. Be more specific and designate them Bathroom 1, Bathroom 2 etc.

5. Pack a ‘Right Now’ Bag
It can take you a while to fully unpack and get settled when moving into a new home. When packing up to go, pack a small suitcase with the necessities you’ll need right away. There’s nothing worse than going to take a shower and realizing all your towels are still packed away with the linens. Things to pack include clothes, a few dishes, cutlery and cookware (unless you plan on eating take-out all the time), toiletries and important paperwork and documents.

6. Relax
The biggest tip that we suggest when moving somewhere new is to relax. Moving can be an extremely stressful experience. If you find yourself overwhelmed, step outside, away from the packing chaos and take a few deep breaths. It will all get done. If you don’t think you’ll be able to accomplish everything, call in some movers or ask some friends or family members for help,
