The Video Archive gets visits from two entertainment powerhouses


The Video Archive is getting lots of press lately, including from Bon Appetit and Bravo! The Quentin Tarantino-themed bar is hidden behind a secret door in a small movie store.

Once you enter the bar, you enter the world of Pulp Fiction, where clips from the film play on TVs around the bar, and a wall of Uma Thurmans hang out over the jukebox. The $5 milkshake is a must-have, and just like at the video store, you can order your favorite movie snacks.

The Video Archive also hosts movie nights on its outdoor patio, and the staff of talented bartenders create themed cocktails for the events.

People's Liberty grantees featured on national podcast


This week's episode of the popular Plural of You podcast featured two local People's Liberty grantees and authors of The Neighborhood Playbook.

The podcast described Joe Nikol and Kevin Wright as two Cincinnati-based planners who "wrote a field manual...to guide developers and residents alike toward a common development model, which they divided into five steps or 'plays.'”

"What I’ve learned from Kevin and Joe is that community development doesn’t have to be this enormous, out-of-reach process that we sometimes imagine it to be," says the podcast host. "There are certainly caveats, and we have to be willing to let go of our own ideas and compromise sometimes to see them grow. At least we have the steps now to get out and start something new."

Cincinnati recommended for "weekend getaway" from Chicago


Inside Hook bills itself as "the essential city guide email for adventurous and established men — guys who have limited time, but discerning taste and a thirst for experiences." It focuses on Chicago, New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco, and that's where Cincinnati comes in.

In its 4hr. Rule section, the Chicago site offers a guide to Cincinnati as one of "the best destinations that are far away, yet still close to home. ... Stipulated: the perfect travel time for a three-day weekend getaway is four hours."

Inside Hook calls Cincinnati "one of the surprising destinations on the mid-sized-American-city travel circuit ... a city built on Midwestern spirit (and immigrant German muscle) with a slight dose of Southern charm."

Guide highlights include 21c Museum Hotel, Salazar, Eden Park, Rhinegeist, Article Menswear and Old Kentucky Bourbon Bar.

Wired likes local project's use of video games to fight urban decay


Wired magazine took notice of local designer Giacomo Ciminello's use of video game play to help re-invigorate blighted spaces through his People’s Liberty grant project, Spaced Invaders. Soapbox was on hand Aug. 27 for the project's first public display in Walnut Hills.

"I like the idea of just 'spaced invaders' because that is literally what we are doing," Ciminello tells Wired. "We aren't destroying property, we aren't making permanent marks. We are having fun, and opening up people's eyes to possibility. Why is this parking lot here? Empty? … What does this neighborhood or community need and can it be in this space? That's the kind of dialogue we are hoping for."

Cincinnati is recapturing and redefining its dining legacy


Cincinnati native Keith Pandolfi makes a convincing argument that Cincinnati is and should be recognized as the next big food city in the U.S.

Writing in Savuer ("a magazine for people who experience the world through food first"), he fills its "Where I'm From" column with memories of great local restaurants from his youth (Pigall's, The Maisonette, The Gourmet Room, The Precinct) and a first-person journey through the city's current high-profile dining spots.

"But Cincinnati is recapturing something," Pandolfi writes, "and while it’s a little different — a little less formal — than the opulent dining scene of its past, it’s definitely something worth checking out the next time a magazine article lures you to Louisville." He bristles at "other midsize cities like Nashville, Pittsburgh and Asheville, all deserving in their own ways, being called the next big food city when hardly anyone says that about Cincinnati."
