Your Weekend To Do List: 6/1-6/3

Cincinnati’s annual seasonal art celebration, Summerfair, returns for the 45th year at Coney Island this weekend.

Freestyle rap battle-meets-Draw Something: that’s how Ghost Empire Collective describes its Art of War show tonight. In the largest GEC event yet, seven artists from the collective will compete in a live art tournament. An MC will randomly select a card with a word on it for each artist, who will have 10 minutes to draw their subject (none of the artists have any idea what mystery subjects appear on the cards). Once their time is up, the audience will vote via applause for their favorites. The fun will continue until one artist remains. The Art of War goes down at The Avenue Lounge in Covington. Admission is free; the show begins at 10 p.m. Bike month is over, y’all and there are some new two-wheelers in town.

Heat things up with a retro fashion show and pinup girl contest, hosted by the Cincinnati Rollergirls. Afterwards, the group will migrate to The Comet from 9-11 p.m. Find registration, a full route and schedule here. You don’t have to brave the city’s core to have fun this weekend, though. St. James Orthodox Christian Church in Loveland presents its annual Mediterranean Food Festival through Sunday.

If you've never been to DANCE_MF and/or have no idea what I'm talking about, you are probably an adult human with a respectable job or children who doesn't necessarily find a monthly need to get really close, drunk and dancey with a bunch of twenty- to thirtysomethings. But DMF is more than a party.
