Pimentos are the new roses...

Jul
10

I may have a secret admirer. How else do you explain the five jars of sliced pimentos neatly arranged by my steps this afternoon?

If anyone can explain this gift or has pimento recipes to offer, I'd be interested in either/both.

Red Bull Soapbox Derby

Oct
04

Today, Mt. Adams -- Red Bull Soapbox Derby -- If, when you heard about the event, you wondered where they would put the course, you're not alone. The event was fun but there wasn't enough viewing area on the sides of the track.

Several large screens were set up to show the interviews and dancing happening at the starting line but lots of people were frustrated by the lack of view and length of time between each car.

This photo was taken from the Ida Street bridge which was directly over the course.  I'm told the event will be shown on ESPN tonight, off to set the DVR...

Sunday Night - Lite Brite

Jul
30

John Waters "hate[s] to be the one to tell you" any number of things: that there is a website dedicated to "blossoms", that he was convicted of obscenity every time charged, that he's looking for a pre-teen contortionist to include in his road show, etc.

Mr. Waters' Q&A session at the end invited questions like: If you were at a nudist camp and could only take one accessory, what would it be? (Boxer shorts)

I was dreading standing around in the smoky hall so waited until 9:30 before heading in. Fortunately, his show started right on time. Much of his hour+ stand-up material was included in recent interviews but it was well worth the price of admission for the parts that weren't. Unfortunately, the Southgate House ballroom wasn't full.

It's not to early to get your tickets

Jul
02

I've never been to Lite Brite but if it's good enough for John Waters, it's good enough for me.

I bought my ticket online yesterday. It's $25 for his show on Sunday but just $5 more for the 3-day pass. (7/25-27)

Prohibition Resistance Tour

Apr
14

The Prohibition Resistance Tour associated with Bockfest was postponed due to weather. Min Usha and I finally went on Saturday. It was entirely run by volunteers and pretty well organized overall.

The John Hauck House Museum was pretty interesting. There was victorian mourning hair art on the walls which is always fascinating and a little creepy.

I was a little disappointed because we only went into 2 buildings and the tunnels in the Guildhaus were basically the same as the Mockbee. I also thought there would be more stories about bootlegging and how Cincinnatians tried to resist Prohibtion.

Overall, it was pretty interesting and worth the price of admission. The tour went a little long on time, 3.5 hours instead of the 2.5 originally scheduled.

The Cheapest Date of All: Things You Can Do for Free in Cincinnati Right Now.

Apr
21

When someone visits, I’m always torn: How best to show them the city, without breaking the bank? Save your money for dinner and drinks- there are a number of things you can do for free throughout the city:

  • The Cincinnati Art Museum is always free and always worth a visit. I went a few weeks ago and there was an installation involving 1000 or so light-up dildos. What’s not to like? 953 Eden Park Drive, Cincinnati 513 721-2787.
  • The world's largest church stained glass window, sweeping murals and awe-inspiring carvings abound at the Covington Basilica Cathedral. Open daily from 10-4. 1140 Madison Avenue, Covington 859-431-2060 (Visit the Basilica site for details about mass times).
  • The Clifton Gaslight district is always attractive to my visiting nieces and nephews. Browse import shops, wellness boutiques and clothing stores. Clifton.
  • Hamilton county parks have an unlimited number of free events. Hike, take a class or visit art shows and photo exhibits. When the weather warms, free movie nights start at the parks- and there’s no better place for a picnic dinner after a busy day in the office.
  • The Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County has free classes ranging from ballroom dancing to yoga, guest speakers and clubs for readers, sewers and card players, too.
  • Walk across the suspension bridge to stretch your legs, people watch and enjoy that eerie feeling of realizing you’re 100 feet above the Ohio River on a bridge that moves.
  • Finally, Devou Park of Covington and Fountain Square downtown get a special mention here, because of the photo opportunities for out-of-towners.

I'll update this list when the weather gets warmer and the long list of free summer activities and events begins. If you have more ideas for things to do for free, let me know.
