Findlay Market Sundays and Flower Festival

Give Back Cincinnati and Keep Cincinnati Beautiful completed an upgrade of the South Parking lot of Findlay market. Painting a mural, and creating a new garden to make the south lot more inviting to guests. Some come out and see the work, and enjoy the market.

And there are two upcoming reasons to come back to the market if you haven't been in a while, or make your first trip. Saturday and Sunday May 21/22 is the 2nd Annual Findlay Market Flower Festival. The event (9AM - 4 PM Saturday, 11 AM - 4 PM Sunday) will feature dozens of local florists, live music, and presentations on gardening.

Also that same weekend is the launch of Sunday shopping hours for the market. So the new Sunday hours, the revamped south lot and mural, and the flower festival... if you were ever looking for a reason to go back to the market, or make your first trip to this Cincinnati treaure this is it! See you there!


New and Improved... Jammin' On Main

So Jammin' On Main was cancelled. While that was a bummer, the new event (Jammin' On) is even more exciting to me. The event is May 13-14 on Main St. Focusing on local original acts, it should be a great weekend of music. Best of all, I'm excited to see venues like RBC, and J-Hall supporting the original live music scene. This is quite possibly the largest collection of great Cincinnati Bands for one event ever!

To name a few of my favorites...Jake Speed, Len's Lounge, Wussy, Sundresses, Cathedrals, Swarthy, Cari Clara, and More...

Bellevue Condos Rising

An already announced project by the Ackerman Group (Harbor Greene) is well under way (you can see it from the Ohio said, right on the river bank in front of UDF). That 106 condo project is being joined by a new project that recently changed hands to add 24 condos in 2 7-story buildings. With the new developer work should begin soon, and they are already preping houses for demolition to make way for the project, further enhancing the riverfront in Bellevue, which should bolster the Bellevue Historic business district.

Dems Make Their Suggestions - A Bengal and a Boycotter

While these aren't the final endorsements, it's likely that the nominating committee suggesitons will be picked up next week by the Cincinnati Democratic Comittee. The list of 6 candidates include:

- Damon Lynch III - Yep, that one, the head of the Black United Front and the boycott of Cincinnati. While DL III appears to have gone 'mainstream' with his 2003 Council run as an independent, it seems to provide an easy target for other candiates against not only Lynch, but other Democrats.

- Jeff Berding - VP of the Bengals

- Eve Bolton - Unsuccessful Hamilton County Commissioner last year.

- Cecil Thomas - ED of the Cincinnati Human Relations Commission and Police Detective

- Wendell Young - Also a former police officer.

- Samantha Herd
