Culture FIX: Feb. 21-27

With the wild revelry of Mardi Gras, Valentine’s Day and Presidents’ Day just behind us, you’d think there wouldn’t be much to look forward to this coming week. But we have highlights galore in the next seven days, especially crowd-pleasing theater productions, innovative dance programs and spectacular musical treats – nearly all of which prominently feature women.

Culture FIX: Feb. 7-13

Weekends are certainly the time to get out and enjoy a concert or an art exhibit, but have you ever tried relaxing in front of an artsy movie or some jazz after a long day at work? Take advantage of an empty restaurant or easy downtown parking on a Monday night and plan an evening at The Woodward. How about some Camp Washington Chili and the American Sign Museum on Thursday?

Culture FIX: Nov. 8-14

Yours Truly is truly glad to be back on the beat, guiding you in search of your next FIX. This week is a cornucopia of events from art openings to movies to a big brass band. Indulge yourself before the busy holiday season really gears up and find something inspiring or fun or relaxing to do.

Culture FIX: June 21-27

It ain’t summer until the crazy lady sings, at least that’s the case this year. Cincinnati Opera opens with works from 1835 (complete with “mad scene”) and 2021 this week, along with the debut of a new piano competition and the return of a newish chamber festival, while the 2022-23 theater season finally comes to a close. Happy summer!

Culture FIX: June 7-13

Art should be about helping you look at things through a different lens and this week’s events do that and more, so I need not say more. Go, see differently and thank me later.

Culture FIX: May 24-30

This is the beginning of summer, People! Besides the obligatory grilling and swimming pool openings, you might want to balance things out with a little culture, with The Taste around all weekend as an always-ready option. But on a serioius note, please save a space in your heart for those men and women who have gone to battle to keep us as free as we are. Their memory is the reason you have this Monday off.

Culture FIX: May 10-16

This week begins with a film about office work and ends with a talk about how finding a place to put your car at work shapes our lives. But there are many other options in between: scads of arts and crafts (indoor and out), music (Duke Ellington to Electro Swing to Mambo), more films (from small town Mass. to revolutionary India to a Filipina country singer), hip-hop poetry and soil-to-soil fashion. Goodness!

Culture FIX: March 22-28

From bears to books to baseball signs, bald guys and beyond … and we’re not past Thursday yet. The madness definitely continues this week, on and off the court. Check it out…
