Sawyer Point

Believe it or not, it’s almost time for the 23rd installment of the Cincy Blues Fest. Chuck Brisbin, who coordinates the local stage at the Fest, is with our contributor, musician Chris Comer, to preview the beer, food, bands and performers coming to Sawyer Point on August 7 and 8.

  Locals know you can get some truly outstanding barbeque around here. But no matter how good it is, you can usually run into those folks who claim it'’s not as good as what they can make. Well, here’'s the chance to see who really does grill-up the best pork, beef or chicken. Cincinnati' first sanctioned Ohio State Championship Kansas City Barbeque Competition hits Sawyer Point on October 10 and 11.
