Your Thursday To Do List

There is a ventriloquist convention in town this week. Seriously! The Vent Haven ConVENTion takes over Cincinnati Airport Marriott daily through Saturday, and it’s got a full bill. Learn about the art of ventriloquism, browse puppets from dozens of vendors and enjoy entertainment from pros (the convention culminates with comedian Jeff Dunham speaking Saturday afternoon). The event is a product of Vent Haven Museum in Fort Mitchell, the only ventriloquist museum in the world. If you want to skip the creepy puppets and cut straight to the comedy, see Dunham tonight at The Bank of Kentucky Center. The show begins at 7:30 p.m. and tickets are $47.40. It’s Founders Brewing Co. Night at The Lackman, where three Founders’ beers will be tapped: Devil Dancer triple IPA, All Day IPA session ale and Dry Hopped Pale Ale. Swing by after work to give ‘em a taste. Over in Northside is Projectmill’s Slurring Bee at Mayday. Sign up at 9 p.m. and pay $5 to compete. It’s pretty simple: take a shot, spell a word. Every word you spell correctly grants you another shot. It’s like an alcoholic workout for your cranium! You don’t need to stay in the city to have a fun Thursday — the Warren County Fair keeps truckin’ tonight with harness racing at 6 p.m., "Warren County Has Talent" at 7 p.m. and karaoke at 9 p.m. Admission tonight is $15 per carload. Tonight and Friday, the CAC offers the rare chance to see a multimedia performance piece about LGBTQ oppression in Uganda. Artist Ntare Guma Mbaho Mwine combines photographs, video and live performance in A Missionary Position  to portray the homophobia running rampant in Uganda, through a wide scope of perspectives. Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $20, $14 for members.

Your Wednesday To Do List

Kickball either conjures memories of intense schoolyard fun or ultimate gym class embarrassment. If you prefer the former, you’ll be happy to know Cincinnati Sports Kickball League is taking the game out of the playground and onto Washington Park’s Civic Lawn! Co-ed adult teams will compete each Wednesday, 6-9 p.m. through Sept. 19. If you haven’t signed up with a team or you’re more of a cheerleader, watch the fun from one of many surrounding benches. Or mosey over to the bandstand to check out free Wednesday Bluegrass concerts. The Tillers perform tonight at 7 p.m. If you’re still upset you couldn’t make it to San Diego’s epic Comic-Con this year, share your woes with other local lovers of SciFi, fantasy TV shows and literature, comics and more at Cincinnati Geek Club. The informal group meets at Roxx Electrocafe from 6-9 p.m. every third Wednesday of the month. All nerds welcome! Find more geeky-chic events and meetups from Pandora Promotions here. The Warren County Fair kicked off Tuesday in Lebanon, and tonight’s activities include a garden tractor pull at 6 p.m. Get your fill of corn dogs and funnel cakes, Ferris wheels and farm animals through Saturday, 8 a.m.-11 p.m. daily. Tickets are $8 (kids 12 and younger get free admission). Yehaw! The Newport Secret Six perform on Fountain Square as part of Reggae Wednesdays. Grab a snack or an icy beverage and relax to some island jams from 7-10 p.m. The free, weekly concert continues every Wednesday through Aug. 29. The World Choir Games have come to an end, but Cincinnati continues to welcome talented artists from around the globe with this week’s World Piano Competition. More than 200 pianists compete through Saturday to be named champion musicians. Tonight’s quarterfinals begin at 6 p.m. at the Aronoff Center. Tickets are $12 through Friday; admission to Saturday’s artist finals are $17.
