Weekend in the city: coffee and books

Home to world-class symphony, opera, choral, and ballet companies and art museums that blend the historic—The Taft and Cincinnati Art Museum—with contemporary exhibitions at the Contemporary Arts Center and independent galleries in OTR, Camp Washington, East Walnut Hills, Hyde Park, Covington and Downtown; the Queen City knows its art. For stage buffs, two-time Tony Award winning Cincinnati Playhouse in Mt. Adams; Ensemble and Know Theatres and Cincinnati Shakespeare in Over-the-Rhine debut classic and original pieces of work, while citywide events like cutting-edge theater Fringe Festival, FotoFocus, BLINK, and Cincinnati Music Festival round out the vibrant arts calendar.
