Insight OTR is a project that started out as an honors course at Northern Kentucky University and has developed into an ongoing search for stories about the people, businesses, culture and history of one of Cincinnati’s most iconic neighborhoods.

I met with Cailtin Neely, creator of Insight OTR on the campus of NKU to learn more.

With dozens of local breweries in operation, Cincinnati was once known as the beer capital of the world. But by the mid-Seventies, only two local breweries remained. Now, thanks to a growing list of craft beer makers and a renewed appreciation of the city’s rich brewing history, Cincinnati is once again becoming known for its beer.

Created in 1986 to support local professional artists, and with a belief in the transformative power of the arts to create sustainable and attractive communities,

Rock Paper Scissors is an art supply and local-music record store coming to Over-The-Rhine in September.

Local artists Adam Petersen and Lindsay Nehls from The Marburg Collective have teamed up with Alisha Budkie of Smartfish Studio & Sustainable Supply to create a shop in the heart of the community (1301 Main Street) that will offer a selection of art supplies, designed to suit the needs of art students, local small businesses, and working and commercial artists.  They will also devote a large section of the store to locally-made materials and tools, including handmade charcoals, inks, books, and bags.

Twelve mobile food vendors lined the street along Washington Park Friday as Cincinnati dedicated its newest mobile food vending zone.

Council Member Laure Quinlivan created the program in 2010.  Last year, it was expanded to Fountain Square and the Purple People Bridge.  This year, it's being expanded to Washington Park and Over-the-Rhine.

The OTR vending spot is on 12th Street, near Clay, and is open to food trucks from 6 p.m. to 3:30 a.m.  The Washington park zone is open from 6 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
