We’re doing some “sole” searching this month for a Boozy Hour that will knock your socks off! Women of Cincy is partnering with Fuel The Sole to host June’s Boozy Hour at the Commonwealth Bistro from 6 to 9 p.m. There’s also an option to sweat your stuff from 6 to 7 with Fuel The Sole.
Anyone and everyone is welcome to sweat it with us, but if that’s not your thing, don’t fret, Boozy Hour is open to the “soles” who would much rather wear sandals, flip flops, slippers, flats, or heels than running shoes. This Boozy Hour at the Commonwealth Bistro will be a night of fine wine, mouth-watering meals, and conversation to feed your “sole.”
For those of you who would like to sweat your stuff, we’ll be meeting at the Commonwealth Bistro at 6 p.m. for a 3 mile run around the cozy, tree-lined streets of Covington for a view of the Cincinnati skyline. If you’re interested in the workout, a maximum of 24 people will be lucky enough to sweat with us, so sign up at www.fuelthesole.com. (Sign up coming soon!)
Sign up for our fine wine and dine Boozy Hour on Eventbrite now!
Don’t forget to stay tuned for the Story Behind the Booze featuring Tess Burns, on June 19.

Join us on Friday, February 16th as we welcome Matt & Angie Tunstall of Stems & Skins in Charleston, SC to Covington for Part One of our Commonwealth Kinship Series.
The Kinship Series was created to celebrate our love for community, food, and hospitality and welcome in individuals with a passion for their craft and for serving others.
Matt & Angie opened Stems & Skins in 2016 in Charleston, South Carolina. After spending nearly a decade in the restaurant industry in San Francisco, the couple moved to Charleston in 2009. Prior to opening Stems & Skins, Matt worked as the Beverage Director at Sean Brock's Husk Restaurant in Charleston.
This special tasting will feature unique wines from around the world as well as delicious small bites from the Commonwealth kitchen.
Tickets to the event are $200 per couple and proceeds benefit Cutman Barbershop's efforts in Walnut Hills. A limited number of tickets will be available on Eventbrite.
Commonwealth was created out of our love for food and our community. It was love that carried us through the early challenges and it is love that inspires everything we do. On Valentine’s Day, we want to celebrate love with you. Make your reservation for Valentine's Day at http://commonwealthbistro.com/about/
