This next week is front-loaded, you could say. Two of those events I have a rather personal involvement with, and I’m going to take this one post to promote them, if you don’t mind.
One event in particular I want to mention – the Top Shelf Sports Grille fundraiser on Saturday. Remember the scholarship we established in memory of my sister? We’re having another benefit. We raised $11000 at the inaugural event back in March, but we need to raise $25000. Saturday, from 12-6, a portion of the proceeds at Top Shelf will go towards the scholarship fund. So come on out, have a beer, a burger, or watch the Preakness at the sports bar. Your drinking and eating will benefit a great cause.
Also in this front loaded week, we have a nifty concert at Twist Lounge downtown. I’ve previously reviewed Twist – I really enjoyed the place. Concert:nova is performing a latin themed concert in honor of the upcoming Florencia en al Amazonas, the Spanish opera premiering this summer at Music Hall. This event is for everyone (and it isn’t all Opera music, but fun Spanish tunes and dancing as well). However, this is also a welcome reception for hosts/hostesses of the Cincinnati
Center Stage (YP Group) Curtains Up party on June 14. Interested in being a
host/hostess? It’s not much work, and a lot of fun. Email me at
For the full list of Cincinnati tastings, both one-time and recurring, refer to our Google Calendar on this page. For
information on what’s going on in Dayton, you can

Tell the retailers we sent you, and happy tasting!
