Top 5 Things To Do This Week

Nothing weak about this week. Your mission, should you choose to accept it (and why wouldn’t you? We’ve mapped it all out, nice as you please) is to hit them all and not let your week self-destruct in boredom. As our Top 5 picks prove, there is just no reason for that.

1. How do you make bronze fly? Commission a statue of Pete Rose from Tom Tsuchiya. The Great American Ballpark’s collection of seven Tsuchiya statues commemorating the best Reds players will soon be joined by an eighth, of Rose, which will be officially dedicated on June 17. In the meantime, check out Red to Bronze: The Story of the Reds Statues at The Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame & Museum. The exhibit documents their creation, with a special focus on the design and engineering of sculpting Pete Rose in his trademark base dive.

2. If you haven’t been by the People’s Liberty Globe Building storefront on Elm Street lately, now is the time. Globe Grantee Phil Rowland’s hand-drawn dry erase map of Cincinnati covers the floors and walls through May 27. Stop by during business hours (Mon –Fri, 9 a.m.– 5 p.m., Sat 9 a.m.–3 p.m.) and put a little color on your favorite city spot before hitting Findlay Market.

3. Rue Dumaine, Ann Kearney’s celebrated French restaurant in Dayton may have been reborn as the more casual and accessible Bar Dumaine, but it remains rooted in the same French cooking on which Kearney built her reputation. With Bar Dumaine, Kearney, a six-time James Beard best regional chef semi-finalist, has expanded the hours as well as the menu, which, along with classics like chicken liver pâté and trout almondine, now features eggs served with a myriad of tasty players, like foie gras and frites.

4. Ken Ludwig’s Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery has delighted regional theater audiences since its premiere at Washington D.C.’s Arena Stage in 2015…even without Benedict Cumberbatch in the title role. Ludwig (the playwright behind Lend Me a Tenor and Moon Over Buffalo) reimagines Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s most infamous story The Hound of the Baskervilles as a madcap comedic whodunit. At Playhouse in the Park through May 20,

5. On Friday, April 28 the Weston Art Gallery opens two new exhibits: The Curiosity Motive, Nate Ricciuto’s dioramic landscape installation in the gallery’s street level space; and Signature Scheurer, collage works spanning the 40-year career of artist Michael Scheurer (about whom you can read more in our May 2017 issue).
