Say Cheese(cake)!

Decadence now has a permanent address in Madisonville. On National Cheesecake Day, owner Liz Field officially transitioned from truck to brick-and-mortar—opening her Cheesecakery’s doors (and her oven) for nearly 400 people. If you didn’t notice, each of her sweet treats is named for a different Cincy landmark (pucker up, Loveland Lemon). Savor a different flavor every time you stop—with online ordering soon! Coming down from a sugar high? Liz also brews up La Terza coffee. But seriously, how can you resist a from-scratch temptation from a genuine cheesecake whiz?

Whole Lotta Options

Your ever-expanding list of places to shop in Kenwood just grew a little more—organically. The newest Whole Foods, located next to Kenwood Towne Centre, officially opened its doors on Aug. 29. Finding a parking spot might be tough (pro hint for snow or rain: there’s always space underground), but finding fresh, healthy options is easy. Expect your favorite organic and responsibly sourced brands, as well as some of Cincy’s very own goodness. Plus the usual array of deals, demos and happy hour events (and career opportunities—Team Lead, anyone?).

In Full Blume

At first blush, Loveland’s newest face is familiar—Blume is a Lebanon fave that now commands the full space it briefly shared with Magnolias on Karl Brown Way. Owner Amanda Marsh opened her second shop in mid-July, turning this once-hidden gem into a full-blown bohemian boutique … tailor-made for anyone with a taste for the eclectic or a penchant for rustic, vintage and vogue. A small biz owner herself, Amanda has filled her floor with items made by other small businesses, from jewelry and decor to plants and casual threads.

Back in Step

Aches, pains, strains, sprains … if one of these has been nagging you for too long, talk to the team of physical therapists at Athletico. PT isn’t just for athletes recovering from injury (although Athletico has a program for that, too). It’s also for teens who curl over smartphones and carry heavy backpacks. Desk jockeys who slouch in front of a computer all day. Runners who suddenly develop heel or knee pain. Athletico’s expertise runs the gamut, from occupational therapy to physical therapy to specialized services—and they’ve just upped their numbers with new full-time physical therapist Austin Brady. “Many people think pain is a just a natural part of aging or something they have to live with,” says facility manager and physical therapist Kevin Schumpp. “There are always things we can do to help.” Starting with a free assessment—sit down with an expert and learn a few tips and tricks to help decrease pain or mitigate problems. With flexible hours and a central location near Wards Corner, isn’t it time you took a step in the right direction?
