The March issue of Cincinnati Magazine is out with its “Where to Eat 2013” list. Dining Editor Donna Covertt joins Mark Perzel to talk about assembling this list, the changing landscape of the Cincinnati dining scene, and how exactly she judges a place like Orchid’s to one of her newest favorites, Eli’s Barbecue.
Sunday is St. Patrick’s Day, but Saturday at noon is the kick-off to the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade through the streets of Cincinnati. While mostly known for our German heritage, Cincinnati has a long history of Irish influence through the generations. Mark Perzel is joined on the phone by Kevin Grace, head of the Archives and Rare Books Library at the University of Cincinnati, who has written Irish Cincinnati, a book detailing the impact and influence of the Irish during Cincinnati’s history.
Taking a new approach to positively impact the lives of some of Cincinnati’s at-risk youth, Neal Tew has opened the T Squash Center and implemented Queen City Squash, a scholastic squash league that will teach not just the sport, but sportsmanship, teamwork, responsibility and more. Neal Tew is in The Front Row with Betsy Ross to discuss his new eastside facility and their opening events on Saturday, March 16.
Not just because it’s St. Patrick’s Day weekend, but because he knows his investments, Declan O’Sullivan from the local investment firm of Bahl & Gaynor will be On the Money with Chris DeSimio to discuss the week on Wall Street.
