The Krohn Conservatory is bringing holiday cheer with their Floral Holiday Show this season. “A Whimsical Wonderland” IS the perfect description for this creative show.
There are certain holiday traditions that our family has every year in Cincinnati. One of them is attending Festival of Lights at the Cincinnati Zoo. I’ve been going to Festival of Lights with my family ever since I was a little kid. I brought my boyfriend turned husband, to Festival of Lights when he visited my hometown during college break and now I’m creating memories with my own kids.
Is watching Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer part of your Christmas tradition?
Now you have a chance to make a new tradition and watch the musical live.
The “most famous reindeer of all” from the longest running and highest rated holiday television special will be live on stage with the critically acclaimed RUDOLPH THE RED- NOSED REINDEER: THE MUSICAL (www.rudolphthemusical.com) at the Morris Performing Arts Center on November 26 for two performances. Following two successful years of touring North America, the world’s most famous reindeer and a holly jolly cast of iconic characters including Hermey the Elf, Yukon Cornelius and the Abominable Snow Monster will help Santa save Christmas during three North American tours visiting more than 50 cities this holiday season. The national tour is a “holiday staple” (The Boston Globe) and an “utterly charming, top-notch production” (Orlando Sentinel).
In 1964, the beloved stop-motion animated television classic, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, made its network television debut delighting audiences across the country. “RUDOLPH THE RED- NOSED REINDEER: THE MUSICAL is rapidly becoming a tradition for generations of children and adults and we are so excited to bring the show to fans in South Bend,” says producing partner Jonathan Flom.
Projections, costumes and characters will be faithfully brought to the stage against a backdrop of nostalgic set designs. The cast brings high energy to classic songs and dialogue, while irresistible and loveable puppets highlight the charming “roughness” from the television show’s stop-motion effects. Flom says, “We address all of the familiar story elements from the television special with a talented cast and puppeteers who help recreate the magic on stage. Since the special itself is a classic musical, the stage show does not feel at all like an adaptation and audiences are surprised and delighted when they hear full performances of additional iconic songs associated with the TV special, such as “Fame and Fortune” and “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree.”
The story tells the tale of a young Rudolph who, because of the appearance of his bright, shining nose, is excluded from the Reindeer Games. He flees Christmastown and meets up with new friends Hermey the Elf and Yukon Cornelius. After finding The Island of Misfit Toys, Rudolph journeys home, where a snowstorm of epic proportions is threatening Christmas. Can Rudolph rescue his family and friends and help Santa save the holiday?

My family has really enjoyed attending Monster Jam over the past several years. Each time that we go, it’s a different experience but the thrill of watching the Monster Trucks remains the same. You never know what will happen, who will win, and what trucks will experience a wild crash.
Monster Jam® is blasting into 2016 with a new 10-city arena based, points-paying Monster Jam endurance showcase, featuring the biggest and best lineup of Monster Jam trucks highlighted by more of what the fans want to see…more racing, more freestyle, more donuts, more wheelies, more trucks, more action…#MoreMonsterJam!. These select markets will also be treated to new competition vehicles such as extreme Monster Jam Speedsters and Monster Jam ATVs as they rip through the arenas during combative racing action. Headlining the tour will be eight of the best Monster Jam trucks and eight of the fiercest athletes competing against one another and against each Monster Jam branded trio of vehicles, to earn valuable points during each new event discipline.
Monster Jam will be at U.S. Bank Arena

Are you looking for a great gift or stocking stuffer?
My family is ALWAYS in the mood for Skyline Chili which is why we LOVE getting Skyline gift cards. They get me out of cooking dinner and everyone is happy with the menu choices. My husband tends to get the chili cheese coneys and my boys love the 3- way chili spaghetti. I go back and forth from the chili, coneys, and burritos. If you love spicy, make sure that you order the habanero cheese.
Skyline Chili is offering a gift card promotion that’s a win/win. For every $25 gift card purchased at Skyline Chili from now until December 24, customers will receive a $5 gift card of their own.
Here are a few suggestions for how you could share some Skyline chili love with someone this Holiday Season.
- Treat your mailman to a warm meal of Skyline’s signature Coneys after his chilly route.
- Give your college student the perfect study break with friends over 4-Ways and chili cheese fries.
- Wow your co-worker with a Secret Santa gift of an after-hours meal of Coneys and a 5-way.
- Show your appreciation for your child’s teacher with the gift of Skyline’s delicious chili spaghetti.
If you have a sweet tooth, you might want to try out a slice of the Dutch Apple Pie that is only here for a limited time. The pie is available every day now through Jan. 3, 2016 at Skyline Chili locations in Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky, Dayton and Columbus.

Do you love cheese?
The Cincinnati Cheese Festival has you covered with unlimited tastings of samples over 300 cheeses.
The inaugural Cincinnati Cheese Festival will take place on Friday, November 6th from 6:00pm-11:00pm at the Moerlein Lager House.
Organized by Gourmet Foods International, Kroger, and Murray’s Cheese, the Cincinnati Cheese Festival is an artisan food festival celebrating local and national cheesemakers and specialty producers.
“We have seen the birth of the artisan cheese movement in America reach adolescence,” says Rob Kaufelt, Murray’s President and Owner. “The best news is that the word is spreading, and those of us that chose this rather strange career, whether as makers or mongers, have reason to be proud of what we’ve done, and to eagerly anticipate what we will do in the future. Bringing good cheese to the communities across the country, like Cincinnati, is at the heart of what we do.”
The Cincinnati Cheese Festival will feature creators of gourmet cheeses and foods dedicated to making delicious, sustainable products for their communities, and furthering Kroger and Murray’s Cheese mission to bring the best cheese selection to America.
Locally held in the historic Over-the-Rhine district, a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Brewery District Community Urban Redevelopment Corporation and the revitalization of this iconic Cincinnati neighborhood. We are proud to bring this community-centered event to Cincinnati.
The event will feature tastings, live music, and craft beer from Moerlein. Local chefs will participate in a Melts competition to create the ultimate grilled cheese. VIP guests are invited to attend an exclusive beer and cheese tasting class.
We value the traditions of cheesemakers, brewers and craft producers. It’s going to be a great night of cheese, specialty food, local beer and the people who make and love them.
The Cheese Festival is Friday November 6th 6:00pm-11:00pm
Admission is $40 which includes
Unlimited tasting of over 300 cheeses
2 Drink Tickets
