Lavomatic lunch

Ron, Suzanne and Joe at Lavomatic, originally uploaded by hjoew.

Ron (left) invited Suzanne (Fountain Square events manager, whom I’d never met) and I for an impromptu lunch at Over-the-Rhine’s newest eatery, Lavomatic (a Jean-Robert de Cavel production). And it was wonderful. The food was super delicious, the conversation was great and it seemed half of Cincinnati was also having lunch there with us. I love days like that!

  1. Ah…so that’s Suzzane. I hope to meet her soon. I plan to start volunteering at Fountain Square events that she so wonderfully keeps me informed of. 🙂
