Findlay Market is known as “the most diverse spot” in Cincinnati. It is a gathering place for people of every stripe and sensibility. It is a place to shop or meet someone for a date. The latter was the case for the hapless fellow in the photo. This past Friday night the brazen young man asked 30 different ladies to meet him at Findlay Market for a date - all scheduled for the same time. Perhaps sensing his insincerity, the members of the fairer sex did not show up. May this serve as a warning to pranksters everywhere: beware, the joke may end up on you.
Cincinnati’s Singing! We love how our city’s coming together to support art in our community.
On May 17th and 18th Cincinnati played host to the CEOs for Cities 2012 National Meeting. The theme of this distinguished conference was “The City as a Startup” and to help illustrate that concept SpringBoard, ArtWorks and ArtPlace reached out to the QCP to produce a short film that highlighted the entrepreneurial awesomeness that is taking place in our fair city.
Beyond simply spotlighting a few local, independent success stories we wanted to give due credit to the organizations that help perpetuate this independent start-up spirit. Organizations like SpringBoard, Losantivilleand the Brandery that provide entrepreneurs with the resources and support to help them achieve lift-off.
The businesses we decided to feature in the video each operate under the umbrella of one of those incubators. They are all doing amazing work across a broad range of mediums, from guerrilla gardening to mobile app development, and we encourage you to check each and every one out:
A lot of wonderful and creative Cincinnatians came together to make this film happen, and as a result of that, we think this might be our best feature yet, but we’ll let the work speak for itself.
The weather was lovely on Saturday so we decided to take a walk to Findlay (pronounced fin-dlee) Market, which is located in the Over-The-Rhine neighborhood of Cincinnati. We live about a 15 minute walk from the market, and it’s full of life and activity on Saturdays so we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to get out of the house and join in on the fun. The market has an indoor section where there are stationary vendors, as well as an outdoor farmer’s market where farmers rotate throughout the summer.
