In Case You Hadn’t Heard…The Queen City is Going to be Busy this Summer
May 18th, 2015 by Keith Hock
It seems like just yesterday that I was complaining about the wintertime cold and snow. Now, however (and quickly), it is summer; hot, humid and stormy (wiping out a weekend’s worth of baseball for my son’s team). Cincinnati seems to be particularly “hot” this summer – and I don’t mean the temperature. Here are just a few of the happenings around town.
- In the shameless plug department, GBQ is hosting a free CLE seminar in Cincinnati on May 28, 2015. A follow-up to our popular “Accounting for Lawyers” seminar, “Financial Statement Analysis in Litigation” will dig deeper into financial statements to demonstrate the analyses that can bring to life the stories told by financial statements. Learn more and register for the seminar here.
- The 37th annual Taste of Cincinnati is May 23-25 (Memorial Day weekend). More than 50 restaurants will offer samples of their signature dishes. Be sure to check out the Best of Taste entrees from The Melting Pot, Via Vite and Alfio’s Buon Cibo (as well as the other award winners).
- Baseball’s All Star game will be hosted by the Reds at Great American Ball Park on July 14, 2015. A full slate of activities and events in the days leading up to the game provide a variety of ways to participate in the festivities. In the meantime, you can vote online for your favorite Red’s player.
- Lumenocity returns to Music Hall August 5-9 with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra providing the soundtrack to a dazzling 3-D projection on the façade of Music Hall. The festival also includes the Cincinnati Pops, Cincinnati Ballet, Cincinnati Opera and May Festival.
- World class tennis returns to Cincinnati from August 15-23 at the Western & Southern Open at the Lindner Family Tennis Center in Mason. The world’s best players from both the ATP and WTA tours will combine to provide a week of thrilling tennis action. If you have not been, I recommend a session early in the week when there are matches or practice sessions on almost every court.
These events – plus new buildings downtown, continued development of the Banks and Smale Park and the growing loop of streetcar track – reflect the Queen City’s current best and its future potential.
