Second Sunday on Main

If you've been following this blog of late, you'll know that we're fairly seriously considering moving to the 'burbs. Still, as a born and raised Cincinnati girl, I love to see and participate in things that make our downtown grow and thrive.

I recently found out about a new event called "Second Sunday on Main." A good friend told me about this, knowing my passion for food and wine. The second event of the season is this Sunday, and I'm definitely planning to check it out. Here's the "foodie-appealing" part of what's on tap for this weekend:

Chef Clinton Jones, the brilliant new executive chef at the Palace Restaurant, will talk about “Fine Dining with Health – not Butter and Cream.”
2 p.m. at Mr. Pitiful’s. Space limited. First come, first seated.

Sommelier Paul Ortiz of the Cincinnati Wine School will conduct a wine tasting on “Wines for the Dog Days.” Great wine for the hot summer months; wines for the front porch and picnics, while you hang out with your dog.
3 p.m. at Mr. Pitiful’s. They have to charge a nominal fee because they can't legally just give away wine for free.

Among other things that will be on Main, I've heard that you can purchase fresh produce from the Eco Garden courtesy of Impact OTR: www.findlaymarket.org/impact and sample real Italian-inspired gelato from the only real gelato maker in the area.

There's music, shopping, and art for those of you who aren't interested in any of the above activities. If you can't come this weekeend, I'll bring my camera to capture the day, and will let you know how it goes next week, right here on www.readitandeat.blogspot.com .
