Cincinnati’s favorite monthly street festival kicks off on June 8, the start of five fabulous months of live music, delicious food, street performers, vendor booths and so much more. This year’s dates and themes are:
The Over the Rhine Boxing Center is a hit. The shiny new gym, part of the OTR Recreation Center, is getting kids off the streets and teaching them leadership, sportsmanship and ethics, according to the people who run it.
Last year crews converted an old leaky pool at the recreation center into what may be the largest boxing facility in the Midwest. Buddy LaRosa had a lot to do with it. He said, "Our goal is just to provide a second family atmosphere because most of these young men are not from the traditional two-parent homes."
For the first time in its long, distinguished history, Rookwood Pottery now has an offsite retail store. Our Jane Durrell looks at the Over the Rhine shop and what shoppers can expect to find there with her guest, Dorothy Hoffman, Retail Sales Director for the Rookwood Pottery Company.
