Your Halloweekend To Do List: 10/28-10/30

There's usually so much happening the weekend before Halloween that the problem isn't finding something to do, it's narrowing your options down! Here are some fun, spooky, booze-filled and/or kid-friendly suggestions. It's the Halloweekend, baby I'm about to have me some fun.Tonight is Final Friday in OTR, so check out gallery openings/shows at Aisle, YES, Static Age and 1305. Might as well Pimp That Pumpkin while you're in the neighborhood! If you're feeling nostalgic while in OTR, definitely check out the Final Friday OTR Skate at the OTR Rec Center. $3 gets you a skate rental, lessons from the Cincinnati Rollergirls, music by DJ Apryl Reign and Diamonn Gurr, horror film screenings, games and more. Go here to get all the details, and be sure to wear skate-friendly attire!Perhaps you had a little more glam in mind for your Friday evening? Head over to Northside's Mayday for Ziggyween 2011, where you'll witness a live, full recreation of David Bowie’s The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. Also appearing are Scandinavian Leather and the original Gypsy Hut staff, dressed as the Mayday staff. That's more than you can shake a delicious, gourmet, pretzel-encased hot dog at (which, by the way, are $2 all night). Check out maydaynorthside.com for details.

Factory Square Project Weathers Recession

Long-delayed Northside rehab finally begins

0 Comments · Wednesday, October 6, 2010
After five years of wondering what all the fuss was about, Northside residents have noticed something different at the old American Can factory the past few weeks: The buzz of construction. The factory is the site of the long-proposed Factory Square project that would convert the vacant 80-year-old building into 110 loft apartments and about 12,000 square feet of commercial space.

Ko-Sho (Review)

Move to Northside solves 'awareness problem' for great Japanese spot

2 Comments · Tuesday, February 23, 2010
Ko-Sho's previous downtown location was cryptic and easily passable, but it has remedied that awareness problem by relocating to the lively and highly visible business district of Northside. It's new look has had locals eagerly awaiting the restaurant's opening for months.   

A Growing Sense of Pride

Annual LGBT event expands, moves downtown

2 Comments · Wednesday, January 20, 2010
Big changes are on the horizon for this year's LGBT Pride Parade and Festival including new organizers, more events and a change in location. As with many things that evolve, however, the changes bring with them a fair amount of growing pains.  

New Home for Raymond Thunder-Sky's Art

0 Comments · Wednesday, October 21, 2009
Northside is known as Cincinnati's hippest, artiest neighborhood, so it's fitting that a new "post-outsider art" gallery (Thunder-Sky Inc.) will open there Oct. 30. It couldn't have a better location: 4573 Hamilton Ave. in the string of storefronts that also includes The Comet and N-Vision.

Country icon Charlie Louvin's in-store performance at Northside's Shake It Records back in May wasn't tied to a show later that night in the area. It was merely just a guerilla stop to promote his new eponymous album.  

Sober and Sad in Northside

0 Comments · Wednesday, July 8, 2009
Dear Maija, My friends and I recently spent an entire Saturday drinking Coors Light and whacking golf balls against a rental property. This week we found out that the owners of Coors are super-dick Republicans who support awful political causes (I don't know what kind of run-in Pete Coors ever had with the gay community, but boy is he uncomfortable with it). How are we supposed to get wasted without feeling guilty?   

R.I.P. Michael Riley

4 Comments · Wednesday, July 1, 2009
It's often been said of larger than life characters that if they didn't exist someone would have had to invent them. Thankfully we had Michael Riley, because it's difficult to imagine the twisted cosmic novelist that would have been necessary to come up with him. Riley was the personification of dichotomy. He was a fixture as an employee in Clifton music stores, but a fatal stroke June 18 ended his reign as the unofficial Mayor of Clifton Music.
