1207 Returns to OTR

A new music venue is opening in OTR!

It is called "1207" - a throwback to the original venue from the 1990's.

Located just upstairs from Cincy by the Slice, Venomous Valdez - a regular friend of the show says it will be a "little room with an emphasis on Americana/Folk/Jazz/Blues/Indie Rock."

The "soft opening" will be this Thursday, December 13th.

The cozy neighborhood of Wyoming
Chelsea VandeDrink

Jim's right - this interview was warm and inviting.  An emotion not to distant from our overall experience in Wyoming.  The women in charge of the Wyoming Farmer's Market are not just enthusiastic about food, but the community as well.
