A Look Ahead

In two weeks:
"Art of Food" at the Carnegie

Ornate edible creations and sculpture were often created for celebrations in the cities and courts of early modern Europe. The Art of Food, an exhibition of ephemeral art created out of food, pays homage to this past and will feature food as more than a necessity, but as a taste experience.

The Art of Food explores the ways in which food is a complete sensory experience along with creative interpretations from artists who use food as the inspiration for the art. Today, the food industry is integrated in all aspects of pleasing the senses.

This unique two-week exhibition attracts the art and culinary masters in the area, to create the best art, food and atmospheres. The exhibition opens with a Grand Event to initiate the run of his exhibition. Top chefs from the greater Cincinnati area, fantastic local artists and actors and the public will come together to experience the dynamic way in which food comprises an art form.

Opening Reception is March 6 from 6:00 – 9:00 PM. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased from the Carnegie’s website.

In three weeks:
Friday Night Fights at CAC

On Friday, March 13, Friday Night Fights return to the Cincinnati Athletic Club. Proceeds benefit Cincinnati Golden Gloves and the Cincinnati Police Athletic League. Happy Hour starts at 5:00 PM and the boxing matches begin at 7:00 PM. Tickets for the event are $30 but discounts are available for large groups. There will be a cash bar and pizza slices will be for sale. The accompanying party includes a DJ. I went last year and it was a blast. Maybe not so fun for the fighters that lost but completely fun if you had a few beers.

For tickets call 241-0096.

Whoa, I thought "CAC" referred to the Contemporary Arts Center, which made this event much more intriguing... Now that would be an inventive programming idea!

I guess I should have clarified that.
