For a few days in November, Euclid projection screens light up with the visions of independent artists. That's thanks to the Ohio Independent Film Festival, the flagship event of Independent Pictures. This year's festival features short and full-length films in a range of styles, including the documentary Project: ICE and dark coming-of-age drama B.F.E.. Above all, the four-day festival promises to introduce emerging filmmakers to audiences who otherwise might not get
chance to see their work.

It's easy to get to the Old West Festival—first head about 15 minutes east of Cincinnati, then turn about 150 years back in time. Modeled after the infamous Dodge City, Kansas, the permanent establishment opens its doors every summer to display rootin', tootin', and even a bit of trick-shootin' by professional performers. Take a look at just a few of the sights to keep your steely eyes open for:
Cowboy Chow: At the Long Branch Saloon, cowpokes and lil' doggies can saddle up to the bar for a big bowl of rattlesnake chili, buffalo burgers, Texas-style roast beef, and loaded waffle fries. Wash it all down with soda, beer, and sarsaparilla.
Wild Times in the West: All day long, the Arena hoots and hollers with the Rider Kiesner Roping, Whipping, and Spinning Show, and throughout the park, conveniently scheduled gunfights thrill young and old. Be aware, though—carrying firearms is strictly prohibited unless you're part of the show or can prove you're related to Billy the Kid.
Singing Songs and Spinning Yarns: At the Mockingbird, storytellers tell Fantastic Tales of The West all day long, and at Chisholm Trail, musicians host family sing-alongs and banjo-and-fiddle concerts.
Fun and Games: families can enjoy activities such as a covered wagon ride, pony ride, train ride, slingshot-shooting range, gold-panning sluice, magic show, or lasso practice.
Theme Weeks: Check out the special themed weekends to experience the West you'd want to live in, whether that's a Steampunk outpost, a baseball-crazy town that plays according to 1878 rules, or a haunted ghost town held over Halloween weekend.

When you're a busy urban professional, "meeting the right person" often ranks precipitously low on your daily hierarchy. The organizers at Cleveland Have A Heart understand how difficult the dating scene can be for young strivers. That's where their singles events come in. Held at some of the city's swankiest bars and restaurants, these meet-ups and date auctions give attendees the chance to leave the business cards at the office and connect with potential romantic partners in a low-pressure, easy-going atmosphere. The best part? The proceeds from each quarterly event benefit Working Animals Giving Service for Kids, a non-profit that trains companion animals for children with disabilities throughout Northeast Ohio.
