Weekend Warm-Up: March 14 – 16

My recommendations for something to do this weekend.

With last weekend's snow, I suspect people are wanting to get outside and do something. So here are a few things . . .

Friday is the Bockfest Blizzard Bash.

"Even though Bockfest is over, and most of you couldn't make it down to drink and party with us last weekend, fear not! You still have one last chance to have a few delicious bock beers and bockwursts. Join us at 4:00 PM Friday, March 14 until the Bock Beer is gone! Participating bars include: Arnold's, Milton's, Grammer's, Kaldi's, Below Zero Lounge, Courtyard Cafe, Mr. Pitiful's, Mixx Ultra Lounge, and Cue."

Doubt is playing at Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park until April 4. It sounds interesting:

"Winner of the 2005 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award for Best Play. Against the backdrop of a Bronx Catholic school in 1964, a hard-edged nun grows suspicious when a young priest seems to take special interest in a new student. Convinced that the man will be blindly protected by the church hierarchy, she sets out to confront him herself. But are her fears based upon moral certainty or stubborn prejudice? One of the most critically acclaimed plays of the last decade examines the blurry line between reality and gossip, discipline and compassion, truth and doubt. This fast-moving, suspense-filled drama is as gripping as it is thought-provoking."

And the Cincinnati Symphony has performances all weekend.

"Schubert's aptly named "Great" Symphony tops a weekend of extraordinary music, beginning with Arvo Pärt's tribute to the great British composer Benjamin Britten. Britten's Violin Concerto is a powerfully expressive call for peace, to be played by the brilliant young violinist Janine Jansen."

In addition to those things I suggest a night on the town with dinner and maybe checking out a band at a local club. On Friday there are of course the fish frys and you only have two Fridays of Lent left!
