Julie Fay and her business partner, Mike Markiewicz, had been involved in various aspects of Cincinnati’s Main Street arts and entertainment district since the early 1990s. After St. Theresa’s Textiles moved from a building that Fay owned, she decided to open a “destination business” that would bring people to the area.   

ForkHeartKnife (Review)

Offering simple delectables and street-theater seating

If there were ever a perfect vantage point to watch the kind of moments that make city life so fascinating, it's at ForkHeartKnife, the tiny kitchen at Main and Liberty that's owned and operated by some of the friendliest and most creative women in Over-the-Rhine. After two visits to ForkHeartKnife, I'm a big fan. It's just such a personal experience, like dining with friends.  

Opening Doors in Over-the-Rhine

They say when one door closes another opens. I was reminded of that truism last week in Over-the-Rhine. Kris Sommer took me on a walking tour of new housing projects along Vine, Main, Pleasant and Republic streets, many of them developed by the company he works for, Urban Sites. In a former life, Kris was an advertising sales rep here at CityBeat.

1 Comment · Wednesday, May 13, 2009
Streetcars could be rolling along downtown streets in Cincinnati in just a few years. After years of proposals and studies, city officials are lining up financing for the first phase. The plan calls for modern streetcars running on tracks with quiet electric motors that get their power from overhead wires.

John McCain heard about President Bush's proposed $700 billion economic-help-out plan today and said, "Hold it! America needs help from a maverick! I'm going to Washington!" and then he postponed his presidential campaign.  

Saying No to Another Blank Check

I'm the kind of person who wants to know everything about everything. It's difficult for me to admit privately, much less publicly, when I can't get my arms around an important topic. But the current financial crisis is kicking my ass.  

Together Again

The Weston revisits Publico in

Posters announcing fund-raisers were designed with an eye to the vintage: coin cans, retro typefaces, "Everything must go!" jargon. Publico's street sign, a light box with black san serif letters, taken from its original spot and replaced in the Weston, becomes an ironic flashback.

Power Surge

I moved to Westwood this past spring, and I like it just fine. That feeling didn't change on Sept. 14, when the electric power went off. As of this writing, it's still off. I guess we have Hurricane Ike to thank.
