What I Learned This Week: #33

Sunday, January 7 – Saturday, January 13   The Week Stopping:  I continued to stop drinking…I’m 1/2 way through dry January. The cold, windy weather has mostly, but not completely, stopped me from going too much. And, I totally stopped wearing one of my favorite shirts because I put it on, went in the bathroomContinue reading “What I Learned This Week: #33”

Blink Cincinnati

Last weekend Cincinnati’s downtown core came alive with Blink, a festival filled with art and light installations that seriously surprised and delighted a ton of people. Put together by future-thinking creative minds including those who work in the design and marketing firms around the city, they unleashed the spirit of Cincinnati’s Lumenocity.

The tour starts on Vine St discussing Cincinnati’s brewing and drinking heritageContinue reading “What I Learned This Week: 20”

You stop because you saw someoneContinue reading “Longfellow – Bar Review”

What I Learned This Week

#3 Sunday, May 28 – Saturday, June 3   The Week in Doing Things:  I went to the Art Museum and Bunbury Music Festival. The Week in Good Frites: I also it to one of OTR’s more forward thinking restaurants Pleasantry for Steak and Frites night. Below, though, is a picture of Frites and Steak.  Sure, theContinue reading “What I Learned This Week”
