3 Points Urban Brewery

3 Points Urban Brewery is set to open June 1st in Cincinnati's Pendleton neighborhood. Why 3 points? Pendleton is triangle shaped and in a nod to Pendleton's art based history 3 Points is focused on fine art and design as a backdrop to their beer.
The brewery is wide open with roll-up doors on two of its sides, it has an outdoor feel deep into the interior.
All the sudden Broadway St. between 12th and 13th is a happening place with six restaurants and 3 Points Urban Brewery open or about to open.

Bladerunner

Downtown Miami is the closest I've felt to the movie Bladerunner, being up in a skyscraper was amazing. All that was missing was the nonstop rain and the movie feel would have been complete.
And people playing soccer on a rooftop helped continue the other worldly feel.

Ride for Reading

Ride for Reading was established ten years ago in Nashville Tennessee. The non-profit's stated goal is to donate books to children in low-income areas and promote literacy. Combined with a big push in May during bike month, ride for reading takes place in dozens of cities across the country.
Closer to home, with Ride for Reading's goal of delivering books by bikes it only makes sense that Northside neighborsWordPlay Cincy and Spun Bikes would team up to make this happen right here in the Queen City. WordPlay Cincy nurtures young participants from all backgrounds through personal discovery and academic skill-building programs with reading, writing and connecting at their core.
Which brings us to the Sixth Annual Ride for Reading Cincinnati. This has been one of the most soul-filling things in which I've participated. Low-income schools have around 1 book for every 300 students. Ride for Reading's goal is to deliver 10 books to each child to keep as their own. It's amazing to see the joy these kids have when we show up, and the payoff for me is doing good in my city while doing an activity I enjoy. Not to mention the feels from high fiving 500 kids riding through a parking lot filled with books.
This year roughly 70 or so riders delivered over 5,000 books to The Academy of World Languages in Evanston.
If you love bikes, books, and kids join the ride next year.
You don't need anything special equipment to haul books, a rack, paniers, some people used backpacks. There were a couple interesting solutions to getting the books delivered however.

Rode to nowhere

The first real full ride of the season is in the books! Did you know it is possible to ride downtown? And that people do it all the time? If you'd like to check out Cincinnati's amazing downtown and OTR neighborhood by bike you can do that every Tuesday with the Urban Basin Bicycle Club.
What is the Urban Basin Bicycle Club? Every Tuesday at 6:45 UBBC leaves Queen City Radio (at 12th and Central) for a ride around the urban basin. They are themed rides and they usually end at a local bar for refreshments. No special bike, clothes or equipment is needed, pump up the tires, jump on your creaky bike and head downtown.
DISCLAIMER: I'm not in charge of this group, just a big fan of riding bikes.

May the Fourth Be With You: An Art Tribute Show

May 4th at The Brewhouse in Walnut Hills, Episode III of the Star Wars fan art show debuted. The quality of the art is amazing, I figured there would be some really good stuff and a bunch of, well, fan art. But I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the work all the way across the board.
The show runs a couple weeks so if you're a Star Wars fan make sure you swing by grab a beer and check out the incredible art.
EDIT: I just realized there was little to no Ewok art at the show. Those little guys turned a battle and helped drive a stake in Darth Vader and the Empire's heart. You woud think people would show them a little more love. I always wondered about the lost potential of Ewoks, everyone saw what those little bastids could do with logs and rocks, why didn't anyone ever hand them a blaster?

They had some live art action happening too, if you've never seen the process an artist goes through creating art it might be eye opening. Art isn't as simple as you would think.
