The 13th annual MidPoint Music Festival kicks off this Thursday, offering festival goers three days of music, fun, food and drink, in various venues throughout Over the Rhine and downtown. While headliners at this year's MidPoint are The Afghan Whigs, Chromeo and OK Go, the festival continues to embrace emerging artists, the bands people will be talking about next year.
Trailing in the polls and the contest for campaign dollars, Ohio Democratic gubernatorial candidate Ed FitzGerald brought most of the statewide Democratic ticket with him Tuesday morning for a rally in Cincinnati's Washington Park, one of the last stops on a eight-city bus tour of the state.
There were about 75 supporters who showed up for the morning event, but FitzGerald sees the “Tour to Restore Ohio” as a way of making up for the lack of financial resources and drumming up enthusiasm among the Democratic base in Ohio.
A Jug of Wine, a Loaf of Bread - and Thou... along with more than 40 of the citys top chefs, vintners and brewers, all coming together for two days of tastings, contests, parties, lectures and demonstrations, to show off Cincinnati's ever-growing and dynamic food scene.
Here to give us a preview of the event are City Stories Media Co-Directors and founders of the Food + Wine Classic, Courtney Tsitouris and Donna Covrett, along with Kathleen Norris from Urban Fast Forward, who has been an advisor for the Food + Wine Classic.
