Development in the Last Few Months

So, while I've been relaxing there sure has been all kinds of development occuring downtown and around the city... here are some highlights:

- Cadillac Ranch - Opened on the back of Fountain Square across from CAC. A little cheesy and not really my scene, but they did a great job with the outdoor seating area.

- Lodge Bar - Opened up next to McFadden's. Great little bar, and great to work with, have already had two parties there for Katrina and Give Back.

- Nada - The owner of Boca is opening an 'upscale' Mexican restaurant in the Old Bella space across from CAC.

- Boi Na Braza and Morton's - Both opened at the corner of 5th and Vine, and Boi Na Braza is amazing, a bit pricey but really awesome.

- Graeter's - Opened on Monmouth a block up from the Levee and will be soon open on the square.

- Steamboat Bagels - About ready to open on Foutain Square.

There are SOOOO many more around town, but downtown is really turning the corner... great to see!

Where Did the Summer Go

Wow.... just went back to look at the blog for the last several months. It's a pretty horrible showing, sorry about that. I guess things just got away from me... lots of great things on the personal (family), Work and Volunteer front just put this blog on the backburner.

It's been a great summer with a successful Paint the Town in College Hill (heading to Northern Kentucky in 2008 with 40+ houses in Covington), a fantastic trip to New Orleans with Katrina Collaboration, and a great win for Lily Pad at the airport.

Now the next few months are going to keep up that progress. Lots of great new things with Give Back Cincinnati, a 2nd year event for Washington Park Music Festival (WPMF) which will occur the Saturday of MPMF. This years event will be bigger and better, with support from the Mayerson Foundation and all proceeds going to the School for the Creative and Performing Arts which should begin construction later this year at the foot of Washington Park.
