Tim Willig is awesome and he has the
business cards to prove it. The shoe and leather repairman doesn’t have
“cobbler” written anywhere on his aforementioned business cards. Rather,
the official title listed for the owner/operator of Awesome Time Shoe
and Leather Repair simply reads: “Awesome Guy.”

Hamilton Avenue in Northside is home to a
slew of eclectic storefronts like Melt and Shake It Records, and, since
April, Northsiders have enjoyed The Listing Loon as a place to swing by
and load up on bottles of hand-selected microbrews by a couple of
Cincinnati’s tenured bartenders.

Jerome Jaffe is a character. With his thick New York
accent, wiry frame, perma-five o’clock shadow and penchant for
misnomers, he’s kind of a minor celebrity in his home base of Brighton
in the West End. He recently bought Rake’s End from
long-time area resident/developer Fred Lane, and is determined to
see the bar succeed.
