Your Weekend To Do List: 9/13-9/15

Fountain Square and the surrounding Fifth Street area will be a beerhead mecca this weekend as 47+ breweries serve up more than 200 of their best brews for Cincy Beerfest. Enjoy samples of everything from Magic Hat and Rogue to local brews like MadTree and 50 West Friday and Saturday. Local food trucks will be on hand to supply munchies along with plenty of live music all weekend. Tickets are $15 and include a 16-oz. cup and two drink tickets or a 5-oz. sample cup and five sample tickets. Additional pints are $5; additional samples are $2 each. VIP tickets are $40 and include a 5-oz. sample mug, 25 samples and access to an exclusive area with VIP-only beers. Buy VIP and $10 designated driver tickets here. Cincy Beerfest runs 6-11 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Happiness is a warm donut and this weekend, you can buy happiness as Holman’s Donuts opens its highly anticipated Over-the-Rhine location. Welcome the donut dynasty to the neighborhood during the grand opening of their new Vine Street store from 7 a.m.-11 p.m. (yes, they’re open late!) Saturday. The Westwood Civic Association presents the fifth annual Westwood Art Show outside Westwood Town Hall Saturday. Looking for that perfect work of art for your living room? More than 70 local artists will be selling their works at the event. There will also be live music, local food vendors, wine tastings from Henke Winery plus Madcap Puppets and a craft tent for kids. The free event runs 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday. Celebrate “Halfway to St. Patrick’s Day” with a little culture during the Cincinnati Celtic Festival at Washington Park. Ireland, Scotland and other Celtic cultures will be represented with music, dance, handcrafted goods and — of course — plenty of food and Guinness. The fest runs noon-8 p.m. Saturday and noon-6 p.m. Sunday. Bill Maher is known for three things: Comedy, commentary and controversy. Fans can expect a mix of all three — with lots of laughs — at Maher’s stand-up show Sunday at the Aronoff Center. Maher is currently in his 11th season of his talk show, HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher which returns from summer hiatus Friday at 10 p.m. Check out our interview with Maher here.

Real Talk

Comedy and commentary veteran Bill Maher returns to Cincinnati's stage and HBO's screen

Bill Maher knows his niche. The king of political comedy, Maher stops by Cincinnati for a stand-up show Sunday just as his HBO show, Real Time with Bill Maher, returns from summer hiatus Friday. Busy with touring and hosting an Emmy-nominated weekly talk show, he won’t be making another documentary like 2008’s Religulous anytime soon.  

The Dore of Preception

Podcasts, stand-up and radio shows help spread Jimmy Dore's socially-aware comedy

When he hears people describe fellow comedians Jon Stewart and Bill Maher as “liberal comics,” Jimmy Dore bristles. “They’re comedians,” he insists. “They tell jokes.” More than once on his Jimmy Dore Live radio show, as well as his podcast Comedy and Everything Else, he has stated that a comedian should “speak truth to power.”  

Bill Maher Doesn't Care for Tea, Thank You

If you've ever been on the receiving end of one of his acerbic barbs, you might be inclined to call Bill Maher a witch. Or worse. "No, I'm you," he snarkily replies during a recent telephone interview, when asked if he'd ever been referred to as a Wiccan. Maher brings his politically-informed stand-up comedy to the Aronoff Center for the Arts on Saturday.  

Religulous (Review)

Bill Maher takes on religion in his new documentary

Bill Maher is a polarizing guy. There's not much middle ground when it comes to his snide, often condescending brand of comedy: You either agree with him or you hate his guts. The same can be said of Maher's sure-to-be-controversial new documentary Religulous.
