Did you realize it’s just two weeks to Mardi Gras? Well, it is. That leaves you just time enough to feast on the abundance of arts and culture around town – if you pace yourselves. Let’s get started.
The Art of Food will return to The Carnegie for an evening of creative fare and distinctive art.
Guests will find tastings from more than 20 area chefs and mixologists, as they enjoy the art, artists and performers, plus music and dancing, and other activities.
Sunday morning around Hyde Park Square is truly a family affair. A band plays near Kilgour Fountain and children dance. Strollers and dogs abound, with shoppers (and samplers) from every generation. This vibe extends to the vendors of the Hyde Park Farmers’ Market, who have grown, raised or created their product offerings themselves, often with the help of the whole family.
Are you still with us? Last weekend’s blast of heat and humidity was enough to melt anyone … or at least drive us all inside. No doubt our summer has more tandoori days in store, but this weekend promises a more merciful climate. That’s good, because there are many outdoor events worth your time in the next seven days. Indoor ones, too, for the once-burned-twice-shy among you.
A lot of work (and money) has been put toward turning Elm Street into Cincinnati’s arts axis. How is that paying off? Well, four of our first five picks this week take place along a two-block stretch of Elm. And that doesn’t even count the CSO – and they’re playing, too. So park once, and enjoy often.
