2 Things about Everything...

Jul
18

Someone once said, "If you know 2 things about everything, you don't have to be an expert on much," which may follow the jack-of-all-trades theory which I generally endorse.

Fortunately, adding to my random assortment of knowledge was easy last weekend at Second Sunday on Main. The topic was Adinkra symbolism from the West African Ashanti Tribe at the Art Beyond Boundries free mini-lecture.

My favorite symbol is funtunfunafu - the 2-headed crocodile. It represents the question, "Why do we fight for food when we share the same stomach?" and the need for unity.

Florencia en el Amazonas

Jul
14

Cincinnati Opera's first mainstage production in Spanish was last week at Music Hall. Saturday night's show was not sold out but had strong attendance.

The set was on the minimalist side and didn't change much throughout. The music and voices were lovely and it's always impressive to see the coordination of so many elements in a single show: singers, dancers, chorus, orchestra, set production, costumes, lighting, surcaps, pre-show entertainment outside, etc.

The opera is starting their shows at 7:30 instead of 8. Which means dinner after is a better option than dinner before. It's too far to walk to Shanghai in opera shoes but the short drive is worth it for some late night pad thai.

Jerry Springer the Opera (not a review)

Jun
30

Jerry Springer the Opera was a little longer than expected. Not knowing why the protesters were protesting, I was curious.

After seeing it, I'm still not exactly sure why they were protesting, it could have been one of several things or maybe a combination.

The tap dancing KKK was my favorite part. Once I got over the "cleverness" of setting the word fuck to music I was ready to get into the story. The whole show was high-energy and fun. The cast was huge and kudos to New Stage for the sound management.

Bonus: New Stage has a bar downstairs, accessible during intermission.

Great American Trailer Park Musical - not a review

Jun
21

(This is not a review b/c I am not a critic.) I was fortunate enough to get a ticket to last night's sold out performance of the Great American Trailer Park Musical.

The set & costumes were great. Over stimulating at times but in a good way. I swear, my aunt had an owl latch hook rug like the one in Jeanie & Norbert's trailer.

It's definitely a show I could see twice, which is probably why the extended run has sold out and there's rumor of adding a second extended run.

The song lyrics are great, a near-constant string of 1-liners. Betty is my favorite character (played by Deb G. Girdler) When you see her in the song, Storm's-A-Brewin' you'll know why.

Vine Street Kroger

Jun
16

Yesterday's trip to the Vine Street Kroger was great. They have everything a small downtown grocery store should. Of course, there's not as much variety on the higher-end organic/specialty items but it's set for the basics.

As you enter, a sign tells you that outside bags are not allowed but I stopped at the customer service counter and my cloth shopping bags were approved.

Brunch

Jun
15

Lavomatic Brunch is the perfect way to start your Sunday. I highly recommend the shrimp & grits. Don't be put off by the mention of porkbelly in the description. It's subtle. The omlette du jour was great today. And the special, pulled pork on griddle cakes smelled amazing.

The staff goes out of their way to be accommodating bringing extra ice for tea and extra baguette for toast. It was easy to get a table the past two weekends. I'm hoping this becomes a habit.
