Weekend Warm-Up: February 22 – 24

My recommendations for something to do this weekend.

There is just a lot of stuff going on this weekend. Of course there are the standard plays and performances around town but I am offering the following . . .

First off, The Bockfest Sausage Queen Competition kicks off this weekend. As I mentioned before, Friday’s preliminary round is at Shooters at 10:00 pm. It is the one event I am not missing this weekend. I think the more people we get there, the more fun it is going to be. I’d love to see Shooters packed with a crazy mix of beer dudes and drag queens. I can only imagine how many times "sausage" will be used as a euphemism. My offer still stands to buy a drink for anyone who introduces themselves to Mr. Queen City Survey. (That would be me.)

But before that on Friday we have the Contusion Bowl II on Fountain Square. The Fountain Square Broomball League wraps up its season with the championship game at 6:00 pm. From the website:
If you only see one broomball game this year, it should be this one. Two teams compete for the 2008 championship title in a sporting event complete with the national anthem, "flyover," halftime fan challenge with $100 cash prize, and trophy presentation. Live announcers call the game, with live video coverage and a giant scoreboard. As they say in pro wrestling/monster trucks/hockey: You can pay for the whole seat, but you'll only need the edge! Public skating will open at approximately 7:00 and continue till 11:00 pm.

The Cincinnati Auto Expo actually begins today February 21 and runs through Sunday February 24 at the Cincinnati Convention Center. Check the Enquirer’s handy guide here for times, admission price, and exhibitors.

And finally I haven’t been in years but the Cincinnati Cyclones have a three-game home stand this weekend beginning tonight. I’ve heard that you can get tickets for as little as $10.00 this weekend through Ticketmaster. All games start at 7:30 at US Bank Arena. The line-up includes:
2/21 vs. Dayton Bombers
2/22 vs. Johnstown Chiefs
2/23 vs. Elmira Jackals

We drove past Shooters around 10pmish, and I saw one drag queen outside shivering.
