Remember when you
could buy a proper cocktail with the spare change in your pocket? OK, probably
not, but you can still enjoy Prohibition-era prices at Japp’s new happy hour
kicking off Friday. From 4-6 p.m. tonight (and each night thereafter), Japp’s
will serve up 33-cent Plymouth gin
martinis with a side of live Jazz and ‘20s-‘30s standards.
Pet owners have rallied for a downtown dog park for years; now there
are two! In addition to Washington Park’s AstroTurfed dog area is Fido Field on
Eggleston Ave. The space is made possible my volunteers and fundraising, as it
is not managed by the Cincinnati Park Board. Help contribute to the maintenance
of Fido Field by enjoying a night out on the Balls Around the Block bar crawl
Friday. Dog lovers and drinkers alike will hop from the Contemporary Arts Center
(check-in by 6 p.m.) to bars like Igby’s, Righteous Room, Madonna’s and more,
enjoying drink and food specials at various locations. Registration for the
event has closed; walk-ups will be accepted until 7 p.m. at the CAC for $40.
Check out the bar crawl map and learn more about Fido Field here.
While there aren’t any new theater productions opening this week, there
are plenty of shows to check out at Cincinnati Shakespeare Company, Ensemble
Theatre Cincinnati, Playhouse in the Park and Covington’s Carnegie Center. Read
about them in Rick Pender’s Stage Door.
Downtown’s newest bar, 601 Lounge and Nightclub, hosts a grand opening Saturday. Doors open at 9 p.m.; $10
cover includes two free drinks. Like a lot of newer downtown clubs, 601 looks
to cater to the VIP/bottle service crowd, so dress to impress — or you’ll
be stuck in the cold.
