Last Chance for The Answers Issue

We start answering tomorrow!

You have one more chance to submit us a question for CityBeat's first-ever Answers Issue — after today, we're closing the polls, sorting through all the questions and divvying them up amongst our reporting team. We'll spend the next few weeks hunting down the answers to your questions as best we can and bringing back all the info in a special themed issue sometime in July. Ask us questions about life in the Queen City you want answered — that means anything on city politics, arts and culture, food, sports, neighborhoods, E. coli in the Ohio River, bird law, Cincinnati's lizard history, what an inmate eats for breakfast at the Hamilton County Justice Center, etc. Whatever's on your mind. Go here to submit us the best questions you've got.

Blog Guide to Taste of Cincinnati

Great weather, mass food, mobile apps, etc.

Start summer off scrumptiously with the 35th annual Taste of Cincinnati — the nation's longest running culinary arts festival. Six blocks of Fifth Street (from Race to Broadway) will be filled with eats from dozens of local signature restaurants, including a Food Truck Alley on North Broadway, and continuous live entertainment from Saturday through Monday. To survive the extremely popular and packed weekend of feasting, drinking and dancing, you need to make a plan.  First, get a feel for what vendors and bands will be there. Find food vendors here and an entertainment schedule here. Food covers all appetites ranging from gyros at the Andy's Mediterranean Grille booth and Crab Rangoon at the Bangkok Bistro booth to pulled pork from City Barbeque and fig pizza from M Wood Fired Oven. You'll also find Cincinnati classics like LaRosa's, Mecklenburg Gardens, Pompilio's, Busken Bakery, Graeter's, Gold Star — the list goes on and on. There are more than 100 dishes to try, and a ton of beverage booths.  The Christian Moerlein Brewing Company — the official beer of Taste — will host a Moerlein Beer Garden on Fountain Square where you can gab brand-new styles and specialty craft beers like the Moerlein Original Golden Helles. There will also be booths from Barefoot Win, Bell's, Great Lakes and so many more.  Check out the map for where each vendor will be.Map: And then there's also an app for iPhone or for Android where you can make a schedule and strategize. Find restaurants, food, entertainment and create an agenda for your trip. And here's CityBeat Music Editor Mike Breen's preview of weekend music at the fest: Eat to the Beat. The weather is going to be amazing this weekend. You may want to bring an umbrella on Monday, but otherwise, it's an amazing weekend to be gorging yourself outside.Weather:Noon-midnight Saturday-Sunday; noon-9 p.m. Monday. Free.

The Linguistics of Legislation

Reviewing the outdated, overly conservative and just plain funny laws still on the books

0 Comments · Wednesday, April 10, 2013
We decided to look into Ohio and Northern Kentucky laws to see if there was anything else totally absurd (possibly sexist) left in writing in the Ohio Revised Code/Cincinnati Municipal Code/other codes. And there was nothing too bizarre, but some of the laws’ requirements and wording are hilarious, incredibly obvious and/or idiotic.

If You Build It, They Will Come

Newly renovated Washington Park hearkens Cincinnati's urban heyday

0 Comments · Wednesday, April 3, 2013
A couple of years ago, Washington Park wouldn’t have been much of a spot to have a picnic. In a few months, though, the fountains in the water park will be turned back on after a long winter and children will clamp their feet over the pop-up jets and watch the clear blue water trickle between their toes.
