Or maybe not.
On Monday, a woman was arrested in Colerain Township for playing music too loudly in her apartment. She wouldn’t open the door for the cops who arrived when neighbors complained about the blaring music. Click here to read more about it.
I consider the story incomplete. I mean, what kind of music was she playing? If it was classic James Taylor or some new Patty Griffin, let the woman enjoy her music. If she was playing Celine Dion, well, of course, bring on the handcuffs.

On Sunday night, I got together with my friends Jan and Jim for dinner. I’ve sort of written about them before in the CityBeat Living Out Loud column, but actually it was more of a column about my Tomfoolery.
I suppose I provided plenty of that as we went to a restaurant we hadn’t been to before—Champions Grille on Crookshank Road.
It’s a sports bar to say the least. I have never in my life seen so many televisions in one bar all offering some kind of sports event.
I can’t remember the last time I had a cheeseburger—same with Jan. She ordered one with fries and so did I, but I also got bacon for my burger. Jim ordered something strange. Jim always orders something strange.
After the waitress took our order, she came back a few minutes later saying that the burgers were going to take awhile to prepare, because the meat was frozen. I thought to myself, ‘put the damn things in a microwave and defrost them,” but because of the frozen burgers, the waitress offered us a free round of drinks. Do you think I’m going to turn down a free vodka and tonic?
It took about half an hour for our food to arrive. Maybe it’s because I haven’t had a cheeseburger in probably a couple years, it tasted really good. So did the fries.
So if you like bar food, get some friends together and head on over to Champions. Make sure you call first to see if their hamburger is still frozen. You know, get yourself a free round of drinks.
