Happy Tax Day! Now Pay Up!

If you're angry about how much you owe today in federal and/or state taxes or bewildered at how difficult it is to properly fill out the 1040 and want to blame someone for something, check out Kevin Osborne's current Porkopolis column about the relative pittance that corporate America pays in taxes.

Fountain Square Hosts Chili Wrestling Symposium

UFC? Boring. If we wanted to see two dudes beat the crap out of each other, we’ll take our news editor to a Tea Party rally and slap a big “I Heart Karl Marx” sticker on his back. (Again.)

Jello wrestling? OK, you’re getting closer. But some local wrastling enthusiasts are taking their love for watching people beat the holy hell out of each other and upping the ante … with a fun local twist!

BEST OF CINCINNATI: Accept No Substitute

Recently Metromix’s local operation announced nominations for a "Best of Cincinnati" contest. D'oh! As everyone knows, there is only one BEST OF CINCINNATI�: the wildly popular promotion run by CityBeat for the past 13 years. While we're humored by their rip-off, we've alerted Metromix to their infringement on our BEST OF CINCINNATI federal trademark and as a result they've altered their Web site and promotional materials.

StreetScapes is 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday-Sunday. Details here.
