Signage has popped up for Sinful Orchard, a locally owned restaurant coming to the east side of The Greene near the Von Maur department store.

Shaine Sullivan, co-founder and general manager of the Sinful Orchard, couldn’t be reached this week, but he told this news outlet in mid-February that the restaurant could open as early as April. “We have our local sources lined up with some excellent products,” Sullivan said.

On the restaurant’s web site, founders say the Sinful Orchard “is not a chain restaurant; it goes beyond the commonplace fare. Specialties will include smoked meats, appetizers, daily specials, happy hour deals, drinks and more. Prepare to be blown away by the vast array of hand-crafted beers, some of which are currently not offered in this area. Wine and alcoholic beverages will also be on display for your consumption.”

Starbucks releases another holiday cup

Weeks after releasing a color-it-yourself cup, Starbucks is releasing another holiday cup.

>> Related: Starbucks releases color-it-yourself holiday cups

The new cup is red with an illustration of hands around a heart.

“The red cup is a clean design, with the heart as a space where people can highlight someone in their life who makes the season special,” said Jordan Kay, the designer of the cup. “The design symbolizes the love and warmth felt during the holiday season, when we connect with friends and family.”

The cup released earlier this month, also designed by Kay, is mostly white, giving customers the option to color in between the lines.

The new red cup, which Starbucks says celebrates “the good in each other,” will be given to customers for a limited time, according to The Associated Press.

“By introducing this cup, Starbucks encourages customers to recognize those who fill their heart and embody goodness this holiday season by writing that person’s name in the heart of the cup,” a Starbucks representative wrote in a news release.

Customers are encouraged to share photos with their red cups on social media with the hashtag #GiveGood.

“The holidays are about remembering what it means to give love and put goodness out into the world,” said Leanne Fremar, executive creative director for Starbucks. “We loved the idea of celebrating the good in each other this holiday season.”

This year marks the 20th year that the coffee chain has released holiday cups. 

In recent years, critics have condemned the cups, claiming they have become anti-Christian or anti-Christmas. President Donald Trump even suggested boycotting the coffee giant in the midst of what he has referred to as the “war on Christmas.”

Last year’s holiday cups were green, and Starbucks officials said the cup represented “a symbol of unity.”

Notorious southern fried chicken and biscuits chain looking to open first Ohio location

Probably the best fried chicken in existence is considering coming to Cincinnati for the first time.

>>RELATED: 11 places to grab some amazing fried chicken in Dayton

Bojangles' -- a fried chicken and biscuits chain restaurant primarily located in the Southeast -- is seeking franchise owners to help the company expand to Cincinnati, according to a news release from Bojangles' spokesman Cliff Cermak.

This is a deeply emotional announcement for me and likely many other Cincinnatians who have migrated from the southern U.S.

>> RELATED: Cincinnati is getting a Wahlburgers, and we can’t wait

In addition to Cincinnati, Bo's wants to open restaurants in Louisville and Evansville, Indiana. Right now, restaurants are located only in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia and Washington D.C.

Bojangles' is absolutely amazing, according to myself and my taste buds. The restaurant's chicken biscuits are the perfect breakfast, lunch and/or dinner. The chicken itself is just delectable -- it's definitely greasy, but not too greasy. It's crispy and perfect. Bojangles also has Cajun chicken, which is delightfully spicy, and pairs well with a honey and butter-smothered buttermilk biscuit.

>> RELATED: YOU can taste the fried chicken Thrillist just named ‘Best in U.S.’ right here in Dayton

The chain's sides alone blow any other drive-thru restaurant's out of the water: macaroni and cheese, dirty rice and Cajun pinto beans, among others. Bojangles' has truly Southern sweet tea, too -- the kind that gives you a toothache after two swigs. 

>> HOT CHICKEN: Competition intensifies with new-restaurant openings

And I'm not the only person crazy about Bojangles': This couple had Cajun chicken biscuits at their wedding.

And this guy decorated his graduation cap with a Bo's box and drink cup.

So, if you're looking for your next business venture in the Queen City, this is my personal plea to consider franchising a Bojangles' restaurant. I promise that I, solely, will be the source of a disgusting amount of business.

Are leggings distracting? Atlanta fifth-graders want dress code changes

Two leggings-clad fifth-grade girls asked the Atlanta school board Monday to change its student dress code, which bans clothing that is “extremely tight” and “distracting.”

>> Read more trending news 

The board is reviewing revisions that would emphasize the dress code must be fairly enforced. Some Atlanta Public Schools students have complained the current rules target girls and want the new policy to drop the word “distracting.” 

“This is a label applied to girls’ clothing. I do not believe that clothing is a distraction. It is just the reaction that matters,” said Falyn Handley, a 10-year-old student at Springdale Park Elementary School, who spoke along with fellow leggings wearer and classmate Ruby Segerman. “I should not be punished for other people’s behavior. I am not a distraction.” 

The dress code rewrite is scheduled to go before the board’s policy review committee later this month and then return to the full board Dec. 4. The board likely will consider final approval in January, said board member Eshé Collins, who leads the policy committee. 

Read more about the proposed dress code changes here.
