One day last week when I needed a micro-mini-vacay, I decided to go to The Greene for some coffee and a pedicure.
The Venetian, as I’ve said before, is gorgeous inside with a mural on the ceiling of a bright, cloudy day and dual [...]

Welcome!I love Dayton, I've lived here for all of my 26 years and don't plan on settling anywhere else.
