Sundays On Main

Second Sundays On Main is back!

Here is the promotional blurb from the Over-the-Rhine Chamber

Second Sundays on Main
The Over-the-Rhine Chamber is pleased to announce the
return of Second Sundays on Main for the 2006 Summer. Second Sundays on Main is an open-air sidewalk marketplace on Main Street between 12th and Liberty Streets in Over-the-Rhine. It is an urban treasure hunt of food, fun and shopping. Second Sunday will start Sunday, May 14, and continue on the second Sunday of each month through October. For more information, check out

Some of the others attractions that were scheduled for Second Sundays included a presentation by Jean Robert de Cavel from Pigall's (Cincinnati's only 4 Star restaurant) on the Evolution of French Cooking, and a free concert by The Modulators. Wine tasting and terrot/palm readings rounded out the list of other scheduled attractions.

While I enjoyed a much needed brunch at Kaldi's (which was rewardingly busy due to today's events), while waiting for Second Sunday to jump start, I was visited at by several friends and acquaintances, some I have not seen in a few weeks and others I have not seen in a few months. It was a great to see so many familiar faces and to catch up. This is one perk of having an ongoing event just around the corner from your house.

After brunch, I headed to Second Sundays to find Brian Tiffany, president of the OTR Chamber perched outside of OTR Chamber's offices, handing roses to woman in celebration of Mother's Day. Also, Julie Fay, owner of Urban Eden was caught creating banter with some fellow downtown Cincinnati dwellers.

Just as I was leaving Second Sunday, in hopes to hit up St. Mary's Baptist Church's bake sale and make it to an appointment later this afternoon, I caught a glimpse of The Modulator's as they were setting up to perform.

Great things are happening... can you feel the change?
