Wolf & Co. Bistro – Tri-State’s New Hidden Gem

September 7th, 2012 — 1:54pm

Hidden in Covington, KY is a little gem of a restaurant, Wolf & Co. Bistro. The bistro has been critiqued by food blogger, Julie Niesen Gosdin, has been covered on Cincinnati.com, and Metromix Cincinnati. They have a 5 star rating on Yelp, and a 93 percent recommendation rate on Urbanspoon.

Wolf & Co. Bistro has introduced a new concept for a sophisticated gourmet meal. Every week they host a Supper Club in which you sit at communal tables and enjoy a delicious (and healthy!) four-course meal.

Casey Osinski, a Cincinnati foodie who has attended the Supper Club, remarks that, “Wolf and Co. Bistro provides the diner with a unique experience, especially for the area, with their dimly lit ambiance, communal seating style, and open BYOB policy. And the creatively plated food was delicious to boot.”

Head chef and owner, Kevin Rayoni, is a culinary artist. His creative appetite and passion for his work is absolutely evident in his cuisine. Additionally, the simplistic nature of the bistro only adds to the ambience of the evening and overall experience.

The Bistro encourages you to bring your own bottles of wine for the dinner – and if you’re not sure what kind of wine to bring, don’t worry! They will email you a list of recommendations to pair with each meal.

Below are the dishes our brandling, Alexandra Henderson, had yesterday evening.

Grilled Watermelon, Housemade Ricotta, Fennel, Oranges, Raspberries, Watermelon Vinaigrette

Seared Tuna, Radicchio, Scallions, Lemon Citronette, Thyme Oil


Peach-Soy Glazed Flank Steak, Pommes Fondantes, Swiss Chard, Shallot-Corn Soubise


Poached Pears, Walnut Mousse, White Chocolate, Local Honey


If you’re looking to do something a little different and have a wonderful meal while you’re at it, RSVP at Wolf & Co. Bistro’s Supper Club. Follow them @WolfandCoBistro and on their Facebook page for updates on their menu, wine recommendations, and hours of operation.

Ikea Gone Posttjänster…in a Good Way!

August 31st, 2012 — 9:56am

Let’s face it: almost everyone loves Ikea for their awesomely innovative space (and wallet) savings solutions. For us marketers, Ikea’s ability to constantly create and surprise us with new ways of reaching out to consumers is an absolute inspiration. As Ikea clings to direct mail as a form of advertising, we are very impressed with their design and the way that they dovetail their print marketing into digital.

Check out our design blog, gnomeflash, for a glimpse into their newest direct mail piece. Proof that direct mail can still work!

Could your brand use a direct mail piece?

Chick-f-ail

July 30th, 2012 — 4:14pm

Chick-fil-A has been all the news this past week. Here’s our recap and our take on what’s been going on.

The company has been known to support and heavily donate to anti-gay groups. Recently, however, they took their support a step too far when President and COO, Don Cathy, implied during interviews with the Baptist Press and The Ken Coleman Show that by being in a, supporting, or tolerating homosexual marriage was to “invite God’s judgment.”

Response from the public? Not good.

Ed Helms, the Muppets, Chicago, and the mayor of Boston have threatened to stop doing business with Chick-fil-A. See the letter Mr. Menino sent to Don Cathy here.

Twitter Fail?

July 19th, 2012 — 8:57am

After a lack of cell service leaves me feeling disconnected at a Reds game, I can’t decide if I should be frustrated with the #RedsTweetUp event, or if having the volume turned down was good for me…

With the lure of field box seating, interacting with other “blogger/celebrity/media” tweeps from across the nation, and a free t-shirt (bonus), I signed up for the Reds Tweetup as soon as I found out about it…which just happened to be through Twitter. I was exceedingly, ridiculously, wildly excited and told anyone and everyone with little-to-no shame about my plans.

Did I mention this night of socializing and tweeting was not only on ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball, but the game was against the Cards?

What war-of-words would I be close enough to capture—and better yet—share, on Twitter and Instagram? What clever ways could I use the #RedsTweetUp hashtag to show my support for Cueto and @datdudebp?

A photo of GABP I posted to Instagram – after I left the game.

I ended up just a couple rows back in section 110. Beer in one hand, iPhone in the other, I did what anyone was supposed to do as soon as I settled into my seat: I took a photo (Votto!).

Slight dilemma: I had no service…meaning no tweets, no IG moments, no nothing! I do see value in having actual in-person conversation at baseball outings, which would have happened regardless, but I was a bit frustrated I couldn’t share my experience with my newly found Reds tweeps and those watching at home.

Later that night I was able to get service right outside the ballpark. But I had to wonder: were my expectations just off? Was I better off not being able to get my wi-fi fix till the game was over?

With a less-than-stellar record when it comes to the showcase that is Sunday Night Baseball, at least our team came away with the win (#sweep!)… and I was also able to put a face to some of those Twitter handles…

Think that people should just put their phones away at games? Or did you attend the game yourself as a #RedsTweetUp fan? Let us know if you think this is a Twitter Fail, and why, at @weltbrand or @kimbrandling.

Instagram Contest: Where in Cincinnati?

July 17th, 2012 — 2:55pm

Calling all Instagrammers, or Insta-wannabes…

At Welt, we think Instagram is a great way to share photos using your mobile device.

This past week – okay, maybe week and half – Cincinnati, Ohio has had a lot going on, some of which has been captured by our very own brandling on Instagram…that’s why we’re giving you the chance to win a $50 AMEX gift card if you can correctly identify all 6 Cincinnati locations you see photographed in our Weltagram above. That’s lunch on us for 5 days…or 10 days if you are cheap like that…

How to participate in the Weltagram contest:

• Follow kim_sykes on Instagram (think: hints on our 6 featured Instagram photo’s whereabouts)
• Send us an email at social@weltbranding with your first and last name, your 6 guesses for each location, your Instagram handle, and of course, your contact information so we can contact you if you win

Whoever wins – or comes the closest to correctly guessing the location of all 6 Instagrams – will be notified by Welt next week. Tiebreakers will be decided by whoever has shared our promotion the most using social media…as judged by us.

Good luck and keep Instagramming!

Have a question about the #Weltagram contest? Or, do you just want to get in touch with us? Find us on Twitter at @weltguylarry, @alexandrahende1, @kimbrandling and @weltbrand. Or, if you are old school, just email us at social@weltbranding.com or give us a call! We’d love to chat, even if you don’t have Instagram…yet…
