Weekend Warm-Up: April 18 – 20

My recommendations for something to do this weekend

Looks like the big event this weekend is Cincinnati’s Earth Day Celebration on Saturday, April 19th at Sawyer Point.

Festivities begin at noon and end at 7:00 PM. The list of events and activities is quite extensive so check out the website for details. The main stage will include a number of presentations including bands like the Seedy Seeds at 12:30, the Rumpke Mountain Boys at 4:15 PM and Jake Speed & the Freddies at 5:30 along with the recycled costume contest at 3:00 PM and the Environmental Awards at 3:45 PM. Other activities in the park include interactive activities including a rock climbing wall and petting zoo, information booths, and crafts.

So while that sounds nice and all, April 19th is also the Ace of Cakes’ visit to the Newport Aquarium! Yes, Food Network’s Duff Goldman and owner of Charm City Cakes will make an appearance to celebrate Sweet Pea’s birthday. (Sweet Pea is a Shark Ray.) He is bringing a 4’ long cake which will be cut at 1:00 PM AND he will swim in one of the tanks prior. The event will be taped for the show Ace of Cakes. Oh, how I’d love to meet Duff, Geoff, Mary Alice and the gang! They just seem cool.

Thanks for the heads up about the Ace of Cakes visit at the aquarium - although I wish it was Geof coming instead of Duff. W00t!

Also, my own personal recommendation: the butterflies are back at Krohn's... for the next two months maybe???

I'm still dying to go.
