Final Friday and some Know fundraising

House parties are fun to begin with, but remember sneaking into abandoned houses?
If was kind of like that but a 100 times better.
The Trideca Lofts in OTR hosted the Know Friday night.

the last days of Cincinnati, for Sarah

A kinda rambunctious send off party, everyone one was there it seems, Grammer's is turning into something and not just because of the Art School Girls of Doom from down the street but a good cross section of Cincinnati. Hell we had to go past Twist to get there if that tells you anything.

Bike Haus

Shadeau bread early this morning and a left turn at the three little pigs lead to this.
Is this an actual business, I've never seen ads or anything for them, interesting.
Cool little street.

Parker Flats Friday

The bath is all done!
I can tell I'm settled in now, last night I was bored stiff for the first time since moving in.
Somebody better start inviting themselves over for alcohol on the deck.

ghost sign

I walked down this alley a couple times a week for almost 4 years and this is the first time I've noticed this old sign.
Of course the reason is, its directly across the alley from Parker Flats and my condo.

Krystal Pepper Memorial Scholarship Benifit

Michelle one of the friends I've developed over the last year, online and IRL, and her family are in the process of developing a scholarship, in her words,

The Scholarship, is in memory of my little sister, who passed away unexpectedly at the age of 21 almost a year and a half ago. We established the scholarship to help elementary education majors at Thomas More, just like her. Krystal loved kids.
It's that time of year. Tickets are now on sale for the 2nd Annual Dinner and Silent Auction to benefit the Krystal Pepper Memorial Scholarship. We'll be having the event on April 18, 6-10 pm.

Michelle, center

Restaurant week, hussyfied*

Friday night grab the keys to the car.
Am I really doing this again when there are perfectly good restaurants to walk to?
Pull up in a urban strip mall somewhere off 71 in uptown whocares, boy this is really disappointing so far.
But Ms. 5chw4r7z and I have a scheduled dinner with the Food Hussy and friends, it'll be worth it just for that.

But don't let the exterior fool you, inside its warm and cozy just like downtown.
The staff, super nice not stuffy at all, this is looking up already.

I got wild boar, just because, wild boar sounds like something I went out and killed with my bare hands.
Its wild. its a boar and its delicious.

The Food Hussy has to hate me by now, I seem to always catch her mid smackdown in every picture.

We picked the absolute best night to go apparently as everyone complained slightly of the other places they had visited. The Brown Dog hussyified was perfect in every way, excellent service and food.

Cincinnati Rollergirls

We went out to support some friends on the team, and a ton of people we knew were going, for some reason I thought we'd roll in and sit down with them just like that, no there was a huge crowd there for the first game of the season. Good for them.
I like the Cincinnati gardens, first time there, it has that old old old time feel to it, perfect for the rollergirls, what a blast, can't wait until the next one.

These guys were on 4th yesterday harassing the crap out of the Scientologists.
The funniest moment, a guy comes running out of their building and sets off his car alarm, honking and the protesters holding signs reading "honk if you hate cults" or something along those lines, are laughing their asses off.
I always wondered, OK, I'm not an expert here but the Scientologists seem to have something against drugs, especially mood altering, anti-depressants etc. But yet every time I walk past at least a half dozen of them are outside smoking cigarettes.
Hypocritical? Maybe someone can explain that.
