Living downtown Cincinnati offers a plethora of different options when it comes to entertaining yourself. The things in which you involve yourself greatly depend on your interests.
Art lovers may spend most of their spare time at the Cincinnati Art Museum or the Contemporary Arts Center. Those eclectic theatre goers may sharpen their thespian teeth at Playhouse in the Park or maybe @ The Ensemble Theater of Cincinnati.
My tastes are a bit more inhibited. I tend to stay within my budget and attend ongoing events where I can get the biggest bang for my buck while being able to hand out with friends.
Monday – Neighborhood Night @ Nicola's
Nicolas offers a great happy hour on Monday night for downtown residents.
Tuesday – Visit your neighborhood library
Cincinnati Public Library has just taken a large hit in its budget. Show them how much you love then and visit your local branch at least once a week. Plus it’s free!
Wednesday - Part in the Park
I, personally, have never been to one of these, but I hear that it’s a lot of fun.
Thursday - Karaoke @ Below Zero
On the other hand, I have attended this event and would not be too far put out by saying that it is the best karaoke in Cincinnati!
Friday – Hang out with your neighbors at your local hole in the wall
Friday nights are synonymous for letting go of your weekly frustrations. What better way to do it than with your neighbors. My pick is Milton’s on Sycamore and Milton streets.
Saturday - Movie Night on the Square
Great way to use Fountain Square and grab a beer at the same time.
Sunday Mornings @ Coffee Emporium
What better way to spend the last day of your weekend than with a cup o’ jo and reading the paper and this neighborhood coffee shop.
So what do you think?
