Cincinnati Profile Launch Party at Performance Lexus

Cincinnati Profile, the local e-zine for men in Greater Cincinnati I run with my hubby Pete (basically the male version of Cincy Chic) is hosting a big launch party!)

Profile has been around for more than four years in print, but I took it over at the end of last year and transitioned it to an online-only format. So this party is to launch the new format and all the new events we'll be doing, like a cigar and bourbon tasting event in spring, and a burger and beer "Summerfest" event this summer.

At the launch event, you'll get to meet the Cincinnati Profile staff, network, and enjoy complimentary drinks as you check out local vendors and the new rides at Performance Lexus!

Get your photo taken in our custom photo booth, made to look like you’re on the cover of a Profile magazine! Also, meet the leading ladies of our Single & Successful issue!

So, mark your calendar and RSVP for this event! Also, make sure you're subscribed so you can get exclusive invites to events like this in the future.

Review: Lexus CT 200h

Earlier this month, Lexus RiverCenter held a VIP unveiling of the CT 200h (Performance Lexus had an unveiling event too, but Covington is closer to where I live, so I attended that one).

The event was amazing, complete with my friends at Cooking with Caitlin doing food demonstrations and my other friend Taren Kennebrew with Sweet Petit desserts. Can you tell the way to my heart is through my stomach ...and sweet tooth? :)

The CT hybrid is a very cool car. Not as cool as my Lexi, I must say, but that's because I'm still in my compact car phase of life. I don't need all the extra space.

But when we start a family, I think the CT would be perfect. It doesn't have the "get up and go" that my IS-350 has, but with kids in tote, I will probably be a lot better about obeying the speed limits. haha! And, as you know, I will never drive a minivan. So, I do like that it has lots of extra space but it still looks sporty.

Another huge selling point - and will be even more important with a family - is the price. It's under $30k, which is a great price for a Lexus, especially a hybrid Lexus.

It's a smooth looking car with lots of perks - for you, your pocketbook and the environment. I give it two green thumbs up!
