The Hearth Room

In response to overwhelming requests for private events are her various bars Molly Wellmann, along with her partners has opened The Hearth Room.
The Hearth Room is located at 125 W 4th St is just a few blocks from Fountain Square. Why would The Hearth Room succeed when a couple other tries at an event space in that space have failed? I'm going to go out on a limb and say the secret ingredient will be Ms. Wellmann.

Urban Basin Bicycle Ride

Every Tuesday on Fountain Square the Urban Basin Bicycle Club meets at 6:30 for a spin around the city. If you've been meaning to join the ride, don't wait, we're running out of daylight fast and only have a couple more rides most likely.
The rides usually aren't this long but they rode out to Spring Grove Cemetary which on Tuesdays in September is closed to cars. They welcome people walking and biking to explore the grounds. I think everytime I'm there I see something new.
So off we went, a protected bike lane on Central Parkway to Marshall, then down to Spring Grove with its bike lanes. A nice relaxing ride.

where ever you go, there you are

Traveling for work doesn't leave much free time for exploring but I managed to get out early one morning and walk to ebrik coffee. I was chatting with the barrista and he asked what brought me in and where I was from. Cincinnati? Turns out he had an aunt who owned a Skyline Chili on Short Vine years ago. She probably wouldn't recognize the block now, lots of change going on.

Ran into another guy at a conference and when he found out I was from Cincinnati he said Oh yeah, lots of beer brewing going on there now.
You got that right!
The Atlanta Streetcar isn't running yet but they're doing the same thing that Cincinnati is kicking around, using money from a development district. Although once its setup who wants to bet our mayor loots that money to keep the crisis that he created going.

Second Sunday on Main

Another beautiful day on Main St and the largest amount of vendors they've had all year. Did I hear that right?
And the place was packed, I guess everyone who isn't a football fan was all in one place. And me, but we hit Neon's to catch the last half of the Bengal's victory over Atlanta.
Also a pretty cool discussion on traveling and beer brewing being the leader in jobs creation in Ohio. I wonder if the mayor and governor will claim credit for that in the next election?

I never saw this food truck before but I had to stop for a second and admire the awesomeness of its hand painted signage. How many fonts can you count? I was standing there imaging the heads of my designer friends exploding.

If you're going to mix 8 different font types consult and expert.

How to know if you're at the IT event, there will either be fixies or old school film cameras. Two days in a row now I got into long discussions of film vs digital and photography in general. Ms. 5chw4rtz's eyes are still glazed over.

The funny thing is I don't really like dogs, but they have so much character i like shooting them.
