Delectable ArtMarch 6
If you thought it was difficult to refrain from touching statues at the museum, try not taking a bite out of The Carnegie's
latest exhibit. The Art of Food.
In collaboration with local culinary masters, local artists create an art exhibit in which food is both the inspiration and the pallet. This two week exhibit goes way beyond the cake decorating contests on the Food Network, as these unique works of art transform foods into a true sensory experience. Join artists Eric Brass, Randel Plowman along with reps from JeanRo Bistro and Via Vite this Friday as the elaborate sculptures will be unveiled. Exhibit continues through March 20. Click here

It's time to separate the true Cincinnatians from those of us just living here. What is Bock and why do we celebrate it? If you answered that Bock is a type of rich, complex robust lager and its brewing marks the end of the winter brewing season and the beginning of spring, then you're as Cincinnati as they come. Bockfest 2009
continues the tradition this weekend with three days of Bock beer, Prohibition Resistance Tours, parades, music and much, much more. Take the free shuttle between participating bars Mr. Pitifuls, Milton's Prospect Hill Tavern, Grammer's, Below Zero, Courtyard Cafe and Arnold's to ensure you experience all that Bock fest has to offer.
