Watching (TV) In a Winter Wonderland

Ten favorite holiday episodes from the past decade

0 Comments · Tuesday, November 22, 2011
Sure, it might sound boring and vaguely pathetic for one's favorite holiday memories to revolve around TV — how very “American” of me — but holidays just wouldn’t be the same without football on Thanksgiving, the Christmas Eve A Christmas Story marathon and all the classic stop-motion specials.   

2011 Holiday Issue

Slow down and enjoy the season

0 Comments · Tuesday, November 22, 2011
This year’s Holiday Issue took a step back in an attempt to enjoy the experiences that so often pass us by during this time of year. Should we have set up an elaborate photo shoot for our Holiday Issue covers? That sounded stressful and obligatory, so we just built a little house out of cookies and candy. It was only one story, but it was delicious. And we enjoyed each other’s company and had lots of candy left over.  

A Very Larry Christmas

Reflections on holidays passed

I have long, skinny fingers except when I go Christmas shopping. Once I’m in a store listening to Christmas music and hearing all that holiday cheer, my fingers swell up. This has been happening since the 1980’s. My fingers are no longer fingers. They’re long, fat sausages that are tired of picking up stuff and trying to decide what to buy somebody.

With the official kickoff to the holiday season just days away, some are preparing to don their riot gear and hit the malls, while others plan to remain in their comfy pajamas and point and click their way through their shopping list. Either way, local merchants are encouraging Cincinnati residents to “shop local” by visiting Cincinnati venues either in person or virtually this holiday season.

Merry Craftmas

Locals show how crafting is no longer just for grandmas and Girl Scouts

0 Comments · Wednesday, November 24, 2010
When most people think of arts and crafts, two images typically come to mind. Some think of the classic church basement craft show where retired ladies hawk doilies. Others might remember second-grade art class, where they made handprint turkeys and might or might not have eaten paste. But what about a marketplace of young urbanites buying and selling items like handmade books, yoga mat bags and vintage jewelry that draws a crowd of thousands? That's exactly what goes down at the Crafty Supermarket.  

Retail in the Rhine

A walking tour to holiday shopping in Over-the-Rhine

0 Comments · Wednesday, November 24, 2010
Although I grew up in Cincinnati and graduated from Oak Hills High School, I haven't spent a full holiday shopping season here since around 2006, when I spent a few post-college months living with my parents. I gave a half-hearted attempt at sorting out Cincinnati's arts/entertainment/shopping scene, but when I heard Over-the-Rhine was supposed to be the new epicenter of all things happening and hip, I just wasn't buying it. Boy, was I wrong. "It's pretty amazing, the transformation that's taken place," says Brian Tiffany, president of the Over-the-Rhine Chamber of Commerce.
