Ok. So, obviously using the word “cool”
to describe something is, in fact, decidedly “uncool,” but that’s not
going to stop us from labeling the following people, places and things
as cool Cincinnati shit of which you should definitely take note.
Because art is a subjective interpretation, you can find inspiration wherever you may look this season — but we’ve broken it down
into some fun and affordable suggestions. Take a ride, behold the
scenery and enjoy the last of the fall weather before things get too
cool for the winter.
One of the great things about fall is that the cooler
temperatures allow humans to walk around outside without getting sweat
mustaches. It’s perfect weather for wandering the city to investigate
Cincinnati’s sometimes-hidden treasures. Let’s start with historic and move our way to weird.

Does the fear of seeming hoity-toity mean we should avoid all the finer
things in life? Fall in Cincinnati is full of happenings that could be
called cavalier, but there’s nothing wrong with test-driving the
highfalutin life — just because you can.
This year marks the second anniversary of Cincinnati’s Crafty Supermarket Holiday Show,
a gathering of more than 50 local crafters, artists and designers
making it easy to find those special gifts for all your holiday
We don’t need to spend a lot of time explaining to you, dear CityBeat
reader, that John Kasich is not cool. You’re obviously a smart, cool

sell bridges to private companies. “Look everybody! A toll booth! Cool!”
In 1999, a young Ohio State alum named
John Kasich was featured in a newspaper article about his potential run
for President of the United States. Nothing out of the ordinary there.
But what was a bit strange, in hindsight, was the way the paper (the San Francisco Chronicle, no less) described this young buck looking to become the most powerful man on the planet.
