I think we can agree on one thing: Only boring people get bored.
It's an axiom that has yet to be disproven.
The people who sit at home on a Saturday night (or hell, a Tuesday night, for that matter) and complain there's nothing to do are the kind of people with whom I don't associate.
The rest of us, we know what's going on, and sometimes it's too hard to pick (as Mr. 5chw4r7z has said on his blog more than once or twice).
Cincinnati is rocking it hard core this weekend, with the wildly successful MidPoint Music Festival taking over almost every inch of my neighborhood, Over-the-Rhine (well, someday it will cross over to NoLi).
If you're heading to the festival to soak up some live music, I highly suggest you take a stroll to the Midway, a blocked-off section of 12th and Jackson streets. There, you can check out the Box Truck Carnival, which is a collection of funky vendors, performances and other interactive opportunities, all housed in the back of several Penske trucks.
I also have to give a shout out to the LIVE UNITED Lounge, a project I am working on for my employer, United Way of Greater Cincinnati. We're trying to show the hipper, funner side of United Way, and I think this space, complete with sleek lounge furniture and glowing lanterns, helps us accomplish that.
It would practically be a crime if I didn't mention it, so there you go.
Tonight, before you hit MPMF, I suggest you check out the CincyPAC Party at the Penthouse. (Full disclosure, I'm the VP of this PAC, which is non-partisan and focused on YP interests in the city of Cincinnati.) We're making our endorsement announcement in high style, high atop the city in the American Building's penthouse.
I can see the top of this building from my apartment. I look at it every day, and have always wondered what it's like inside. I can't wait to check it out.
Finally, I have to say a big thank you to all of my family and friends who helped me celebrate a humbling honor. The Business Courier's 2011 Forty under 40 class is full of really engaged and committed people, and I am flattered to be included in the group.
Let's go do more good work. And then, let's go rock out.
