This weather is a real bummer. Here are five ideas for staying warm while also keeping it local.

Support your favorite Ohio teams with warm, durable sweatshirts and winter hats from Homage. You can visit their store on Vine Street, or, if the winter wind is too harsh to adventure to Over-the-Rhine, you can visit their store online at

2. Get some hot coffee and your art fix at Red Tree Art Gallery and Coffee Shop
Grab a steamy cup of fair trade, organic coffee from the Red Tree Art Gallery and Coffee Shop while you enjoy featured pieces from emerging local artists.

3. Enjoy some hot soup from LaSoupe
Have some hot soup from LaSoupe and help those in need. This French-style soup shack donates a bowl of soup to those in need for every quart sold. Enjoy seasonal favorites and give back to the community at the same time.

4. Grab a fireside read from The Booksellers on Fountain Square
As long as you’re huddled indoors, why not tear through a book to pass the time? The Booksellers, located on Vine Street, is a locally owned, independent bookstore with a full selection of books, magazines, and even fancy decor items like Rookwood Pottery.

5. Or, embrace the frigid winter and glide down Perfect North Slopes
Instead of hiding in terror as the snow hits the ground, why not embrace the harsh winter and venture to Perfect North Slopes? The cold can’t touch you when you’re gliding down some of the best slopes in the Midwest. Their snow tubing runs and black diamond slopes are the best way embrace these last few months of snow.
