Your Wednesday To Do List

Art on the Streets Cincinnati is a new local initiative to encourage performance and art in public spaces across the city. The group’s initial efforts will unleash dancers, singers, painters, musicians and other artists to parks and sidewalks during the World Choir Games (July 4-14) to welcome visitors (up to 90,000 of ‘em) and get locals in the arty spirit. Art on the Streets hopes to continue this public creative effort long after the Games, as well. Discover more about the group (and public performance rules) tonight at Know Theater. An informational and planning meeting is set to begin at 7:30 p.m., so grab a drink at Know’s bar and learn how you can participate in making Cincinnati and even more lively arts scene. Email ArtsCincy@gmail.com to RSVP. Mayerson JCC’s Summer Cinema Series continues tonight with two episodes from the Israeli comedy television series Arab Labor (Avoda Aravit). Referred to as the Palestinian Seinfeld, the series follows Arab-Israeli journalist Amjad, a hapless but good-hearted man who neurotically tries to conform with both Arab and Jewish expectations and his one-of-a-kind family. Screenings are from 1-3 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. Tickets are $10 ($8 for JCC members). Joseph M. Schuster will discuss and sign his debut novel, The Might Have Been at 7 p.m. at Joseph-Beth Cincinnati. From St. Louis, Mo. Schuster presents a novel about the consequences of chasing an unattainable dream, regret and redemption. And don’t forget free weekly events: Party in the Park features music from 3 Day Rule 5-10 p.m. and happy hour specials ‘til 6:30; Clifton Cultural Arts Center presents Wednesdays on the Green with Tracy Walker, kids activities, on-site food vendors and more beginning at 7 p.m.; Reggae Wednesday brings jammin’ to Fountain Square, 7-10 p.m. Tonight’s band is Lucky 7. Don't let the impending heat hold you back from a fun weeknight!

Your Wednesday To Do List

In celebration of City Council’s repeal of the breed-specific language in Cincinnati’s vicious dog ordinance, Cincinnati Pit Crew invites pups of all sorts to strut the streets tonight. Pitties on Parade is a chance for pit bulls and other breeds to show off their sweet side and display why the May 16 repeal was a good decision. The group walk begins on the West Grove of Fountain Square (pets are not allowed on the actual square) at 5:30 p.m. and will continue on various routes, where participants will break into groups to saunter across the city. Everyone will re-group at Smale Riverfront Park at 7 p.m. Make sure your dog is healthy, at least 6 months old, up-to-date on vaccinations and good-natured (the same should probably go for owners).

Your Wednesday To Do List

GOOD Ideas for Cities is an opportunity for problem-solvers to tackle some of their cities’ greatest urban challenges. GOOD has an excellent magazine, but the company is also a collective of innovative individuals, nonprofits and other organizations united to push the world in a positive direction. The GOOD Ideas for Cities program will be presented in six cities this year, including Cincinnati. Local urban leaders met with GOOD to determine some of the city’s urban issues and, last month, GOOD put out a call for creative Cincinnatians with bright ideas. Six teams of problem-solvers were selected and each given an urban challenge Cincinnati currently faces. Tonight at the Contemporary Arts Center, these teams will present their solutions and join the urban leaders for a Q&A. After the 7 p.m. presentation, enjoy drinks and conversation and learn how to help make the ideas a reality. Admission is free, but you must RSVP here. Doors open at 6 p.m., so come early as reservations do not guarantee entrance after 6:45 p.m. It’s a pretty big deal that Cincinnati was selected to participate in the program, and tonight is sure to be an engaging, inspirational evening. An after-work summer destination for many yuppies Tri-Staters, Party in the Park returns tonight for its 32nd year tonight. Every Wednesday through July, Party in the Park brings booze and popular area cover bands to Yeatman’s Cove from 5-10 p.m. Happy hour runs 5-6:30 p.m. and for the first time, wine and cocktails are available in addition to beer. Tonight’s music comes from Naked Karate Girls. Check out the full lineup here. Perhaps contemporary Classical is more your style? World-renown composer Yanni performs at the Aronoff Center tonight. Known for being the sound of New Wave and providing the music for the Olympics (since 1988) and countless other televised sporting events, Yanni presents a new touring show featuring new music from Truth of Touch, his first album of original studio music in almost a decade. Tonight’s performance begins at 8 p.m. Go here to find tickets. Interior decorator and HGTV host/designer Monica Pedersen will stop by Joseph-Beth Booksellers in Rookwood Pavilion to discuss and sign her new book. Monica Pedersen Make It Beautiful: Designs and Ideas for Entertaining at Home combines the author’s DIY nature and design/décor expertise to turn readers into party-throwing pros.
