  58. AUTUMN LEAVES AND APPLE PIE; ENJOYING THE FALL IN CINCINNATIMon, 28 Oct 2013 11:41:36 EST
    I am in love. With the fall in Cincinnati. Why? First and foremost, because it is just incredibly beautiful. There are the radiant colors of the leaves, the scent of burning fire wood, and the crisp air in the mornings and evenings.Second, coming from a 3 year stint in South America, I haven't experienced a proper fall in a long time. Therefore, I am determined to enjoy the fall in Cincinnati to the fullest. Also, I feel that this season gets more attention in the US than it does in Germany. Everything suddenly turns magically orange, you can find fall leaf scented candles in the store, and everybody seems to organize their free time around visits to pumpkin farms and decorating their front yards for Halloween.

    Since I came to Cincinnati, I have heard the term tri-state area probably 2,458 times. Sure, Cincinnati is in Ohio, and I have been to Kentucky many many times, but what about Indiana? I had never been there, I hadn't ever heard anybody talk about going there, and in five months of living in Cincinnati, I had seen exactly one car with an Indiana license plate. So what is up with Indiana? How come it is so close to Cincinnati but nobody ever seems to go there? What is going on in the state, and what do people do there? Why don't you ever meet anybody from Indiana? A whole lot of questions and only one way to find out: road trip to Indiana!

  65. ROAD TRIP TO HILTON HEAD ISLANDThu, 26 Sep 2013 13:37:30 EST
    Over the course of the last week or so, instead of scouring the internet for great fashion finds, I went on vacation with my friends, Shannon and Raqui. So, instead of finding ways for us to spend our hard-earned cash on clothes, shoes, jewelry and the like, I'm going to tell you a bit about my trip, and tempt you to go on a girls get-away for some relaxation and fun. Shannon, Raqui and I have traveled together a lot over the past few years, but its always been by air or on a cruise. This time, a friend of mine offered the use of a timeshare at Hilton Head, S. Carolina for a week, so, naturally, I invited my girls to go on a road trip with me down South.

  72. THE CREATION MUSEUMMon, 05 Aug 2013 08:51:35 EST
    Do you believe in evolution? As a German, I have to admit that the first time somebody in Cincinnati asked me this question, it came as a shock. Germans are, generally speaking, not very religious. Even though religion forms part of the normal curriculum in German schools, these classes have nothing in common with Sunday school or Bible class. We learn about general religious ideas and the philosophies of the different world religions. Also, it is mostly not considered cool or hip to go to church if you are under 60 years old. In Cincinnati, however, it seems that people are far more open and even proud about their religion, and I feel that it plays a bigger role in people's lives. Therefore, regardless of how I feel about evolution, the idea of a Creation Museum that rejects evolution shocked me at first, but became more and more fascinating, until I finally decided to go and see for myself what it was all about.

    What started as a response to the 01 Riots has blossomed into an urban creative hub.For what Cincinnatis racial riots of 2001 displayed in ugliness and violence, they also brought forward one thought amongst most people: something needs to change. And so when a group of activists began Cop Watch in 2002, they took their first step in causing this change. The group evolved and they began to formalize better ways to serve the community. In 2005 they officially opened Elementz, the Hip Hop Youth Arts Center located in Cincinnnatis West End.

I have absolutely no interest in where Jeff Ruby eats his bagels or whether or not Larry Flynt, who Ruby also banned, and Casey Anthony ever eat. I intend to stay out of all of these establishments. You can judge for yourselves. Jeff Ruby has been banned. The Cincinnati restaurateur to the stars has been banned from Marx Hot Bagels. Actually, Ive grown tired of reading about him banning various people, Marx, aka The Bagel Man said. In this day and age I like to promote love and peace and everyone is welcome to my bagel shop.

The Plunge is a truly unique event and includes a fun, festive atmosphere with food and great prizes. The Plunge works just like a Walk-a-Thon, but with one big twist. Participants still solicit donations to support their effort (a BARE minimum of $75 to take part -- $50 minimum for Junior Plungers, ages 6-18), but instead of walking, Polar Bears take a chilly dip into a pool that will be set up in the parking lot at Joes Crab Shack.

    What is it about the week between Christmas and New Year's that is such a downer? Suddenly, that Christmas tree that looked so great just a couple of days ago, looks forlorn, the wrapping is off all those presents and now we just have to face the fact that we really can't squeeze into that size 8 any longer and that Aunt Milly's taste is not going to improve and we have one more ugly tie/sweater/whatever to hang in the back of our closet. And, we are back at work, while many of our friends have jetted off to the Caribbean for the holiday week. Think of the good things about this week... 1) There's no more count-down to Christmas on the Family Channel. 2) You don't have to watch Elf again for another whole year. 3) Taylor Swift will stop singing "Last Christmas" until next year.

All you need is a Santa suit, a mobile phone, a good heart and a spirit of fun. Cincinnati Santacon is essentially a gathering of like minded individuals who wish to both get into the Christmas spirit, as well as spread Christmas cheer to their fellow man. On the morning of the event you will be contacted via mobile phone text message or Twitter and instructed to descend upon a location while wearing your Santa Claus Suit. Throughout the day you will continue receiving text messages and Tweets guiding you through Cincinnati (on foot) from location to location. Many of these locations are bars so this is not an event for children. The group of Santa Clauses will sing songs, make merry, and generally spread good cheer through the city.

    Are you a theatre-lover? Then you won't want to miss "The 39 Steps" being presented now through March 14 at the Aronoff. I got a chance to see the show last night and didn't know quite what to expect. It is an Alfred Hitchcock murder mystery, but bears no resemblance to "Psycho" or "Rear Window." It is a 1930's era murder mystery, screwball comedy filled with spys, twists, clever dialogue and lots of laughs. The four member cast is superb and the very cleverly staged show is delightful.

A tradition developed among the breweries to release all of their bock beer on the same day. Bock beer is a rich, complex, robust lager that marks the end of the Winter brewing season and the beginning of Spring.

There were others, of course, including the Bachelor, Jake, I hope he can stop crying long enough to dance, Kate Gosslin, Pamela Anderson and Olympic Gold Medalist Evan Lysacek.

Mayor Mallory was quick to assure supporters of the project that this does not hurt plans for the project.

This musical adaptation of Elmer Rices 1923 play is a heartbreaking and brilliant tale of the life of middle-class worker, Mr. Zero. After 25 years of service to his company he is replaced by a mechanical adding machine and in a vengeful rage, murders his boss. Zero arrives at an afterlife in the Elysian Fields where he is forced to decide his fate for eternity. The angelic and remarkably eclectic score gives each character a unique voice for their hopes, dreams, and failures as they wander through their monotonous and darkly comic lives.

  548. COLD TURKEY RESTAURANTThu, 08 Oct 2009 09:24:09 EST
    I am very sorry to report that Cold Turkey Restaurant on 6th Street has closed its doors. There were no nicer people in the world than Jameson Stewart,Michael Parrich, , and Jennifer Fortkamp. They had a unique concept offering 100% fresh ingredients. They offered free entertainment and a place for artists to display their works for sale with no commission. It seems the restaurant had problems with noxious odors which emanated from the floors above them in the century old building. Complaints to the health department confirmed the problems and it is thought that there may be broken waste pipes in the building. The owners report that complaints to the landlord, Jack Brendamour, met with no response. Also, winter is coming and it is reported that the boiler in the building is broken and again there has been no progress in getting it fixed. No customers could expect to visit the restaurant under these circumstances.

    More than 2,000 people, including lucky me, attended the Nordstrom's Opening Gala at the Kenwood Towne Center last night. It was quite an event with free flowing food and drink, great entertainment and best of all "SHOPPING". The attendees certainly had a good time. The Nordstrom's staff was friendly, attentive and eager to please. The event was not just great fun for the guests but benefitted several very worthy local causes, The Cris Collinsworth ProScan Fund, Lighthouse Youth Services and The Links, Incorporated. I could have spent $10,000 at Nordstrom's last night, if I had $10,000, and never batted an eye. Not that the prices are that high, I just saw sooo many things that I wanted. Ladies, run, don't walk to the official opening this Friday. There is a great selection and brands that we don't ordinarly see in Cincinnati. The shoe department alone is worth the trip. The kids department also had some really cute things.

    If you missed the bra fitting event at the Nordstrom's store on Saturday, you missed a treat. First you got a sneak peak of the store. Though many of the shelves were not yet filled, you could get a general idea. The shoe department looks huge. There were no shoes out yet; I guess they thought the women would go nuts surrounded by that many shoes and not being able to try them on. Jewelry, handbags and accessories are also on the first floor Oh yeah, that's where the men's department is too. The second floor is pretty much devoted to us girls. Some merchandise was on display, but roped off, but the lingerie department was completely open for shopping.

    Last night I went to President's Park in Edgewood, Ky to see the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company's production of Romeo and Juliet. It was a little chilly last night, but for once I did the smart thing and brought a jacket and blanket. This is the first time I have ever been to one of these productions and it was a lot of fun. The cast of 7 played multiple roles, but despite that I had absolutely now problem in keeping the characters straight. This is a tribute to the very talented, enthusiastic young cast. The play is done in modern day clothes. I'm not sure how the players kept all of this straight, but they did and just watching the players quickly change characters kept the production lively.

The Hope Diamond, the largest Blue Diamond in the world is celebrating its 50th year at the Smithsonian by getting a makeover. (At 50, we could probably all use a little makeover). Three new designs have been chosen and the public gets to choose the one they like best. You can vote at www.smithsonianchannel.com. The Hope diamond was most likely discovered in India in the 17th century and was originally a much larger stone, known as the French Blue, probably because at one time it was owned by French King Louis XIV (wonder if he wore it as an earring?)

    Tonight in Edgewood Kentucky was one of the musical treats of the summer. Edgewood holds weekly concerts in the Park every Tuesday during the summer and they have all been very good, but this one topped everything. A non-profit orchestra, the Cincinnati Metropolitan Orchestra treated us to an evening of musical delights. The orchestra and the CMO chorale group, who have been together since 1996 performed with a love for the music that was apparent in their performance. These people all love what they are doing and have a great time performing. Led by conductor, David Allen, who is the music director at St. William Church in Price Hill and a music teacher at Elder (and who by the way celebrated his 70th birthday tonight), the orchestra inspired several standing ovations from the packed house at Hinsdale School (the concert moved inside because of threatening weather)...(more)
