Friday, January 5:

The 58th Cavalcade of Customs rolls into Cincinnati for the weekend. Friday hours are 3-10 pm.

Double win – have a beer and then get your grocery shopping done. It’s Pint Night at Jungle Jim’s. 5-9pm.


Saturday, January 6:

Whole30 fans – author Melissa Hartwig makes a stop at the main branch of the Public Library as part of her book tour. 12-2pm.

The Cincinnati Art Museum host their monthly Family First Saturday from 12-4pm. This fun-filled day is perfect for the whole family. In honor of their special exhibit, Albrecht Dürer: The Age of Reformation and Renaissance, they’re celebrating Renaissance art and music with a scavenger hunt, special performances and much more. Free.

Head to the Sharonville Cultural Arts Center for a family movie night with FREE popcorn! They’ll be showing “Despicable Me 3” at 6PM. Pre-registration for the movie is available at the Sharonville Community Center for $1.00. You may pay at the door the day of the movie as well.

Put on some skates and hit the ice for Throwback Skates at the Fountain Square Ice Rink, 5-9pm. Every Saturday night enjoy a blast from the past featuring all of your favorite songs from the last four decades of music. Be sure to present a flyer from the nonprofit of the week and they’ll donate $2 of your admission to the cause (this Saturday’s cause is Zieglar Park).

The 58th Cavalcade of Customs rolls into Cincinnati for the weekend. Saturday hours are 10 am -10 pm.


Sunday, January 7:

This is the last day to catch Cincinnati Choo Choo at the Krohn Conservatory.

It’s Family Feud Trivia Night at West Side Brewing starting at 7pm. The format is similar to trivia night but the difference is that Feud challenges you to identify the most popular answers instead of having to know the correct answers. No more questions that are too stinkin’ hard. No more worrying about cheating. No more super-competitive recruiting teams all hopped up on brain roids.

The 58th Cavalcade of Customs rolls out after Sunday! Sunday hours are 10 am -6 pm.
