Tonight kicks off
the Drink in Ludlow Wine Walk, the first in a bi-monthly series to promote
the historic Gaslight District in Clifton. Sip samples of wine while sauntering
along the picturesque Ludlow Avenue, and pop in participating businesses like
Esquire Theatre, Habanero, Skyline, Sitwells, Mustard Seed Boutique and about a
dozen more, from 6-8 p.m. The walk and
wine are all complimentary (yay!); vendor proceeds benefit the Cincinnati
Public Library’s Clifton Branch (double yay!). After the walk, enjoy live music at Arlin's and Ludlow Garage 'til 10.
