  • Cincinnati Comic Expo
    Comics fans in smaller towns know the frustration of having to travel hundreds of miles to find a great convention. Andrew Satterfield was tired of that feeling, and decided to start his own convention in his hometown of Cincinnati—not only celebrating the tri-state-area comic scene but all periods of and genres of international pop culture. The first convention in 2010 was small but notable, drawing a respectable 1,800 fans to its one-day event. Today, however, the convention today draws tens of thousands of fans from across the country and overseas. Over the years, Andrew and his team have made the convention a destination event, adding more days, moving to a larger venue, attracting thousands of fans, and drawing ever bigger names—to the tune of internationally recognized figures such as comic artists Henry Wrinkler and Lou Ferrign to Gotham’s Robin Lord Taylor, Lord of the Rings's Sean Astin and Sharknado’s Ian Ziering. Now a three-day affair that takes place in the Duke Energy Convention Center, the Cincinnati Comic Expo lets fans of every franchise browse thousands of comics, movie posters, and collectibles; hear their favorite celebrities speak; and test out mutant powers without fear of governmental repercussions.

  • Bar 145
    You could argue that, as a self-proclaimed gastropub specializing in "burgers, bands, and bourbon," Bar 145 is not quite a cozy bar and not quite an upscale restaurant. Or, you could say that it offers the best of both worlds. The menu appeals to refined and socially responsible palates alike with local produce. The line between fine dining and casual is further blurred when the waiter arrives at your table wearing red Chuck Taylor tennis shoes and holding a build-your-own burger atop, of all things, white china. Even the name Bar 145 is a hybrid: the first portion points to its hefty beer and bourbon reserves, and the 145 refers not to an address or the number of licks it takes to get to the center of a truffle french fry, but to the ideal temperature of a medium-rare burger. The label-defying hot spot is also known for its live music, tuning up acoustic sets, dueling pianos, and full bands from Ohio and across the country six nights a week. Bar 145's musical roots run as deep as those of its chef, Robby Lucas, who once cooked dinner for Metallica after its Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction, according to the Toledo City Paper. The space itself leaves plenty of room for air-guitar solos at the 50-seat, oval-shaped bar on the outdoor patio.

  • Adam Carolla
    One of many vaudeville and movie palaces that sprung up in the 1920s, the Warner Theatre today drops jaws in much the same way it did in its infancy: with glittering chandeliers, gilded ceilings, and red-felt seats. Yet before transforming into its modern incarnation, it served as a film-only venue with such luxuries as a rooftop garden and a ballroom in the basement. The Warner even had a dance troupe akin to the Rockettes?called the Roxyettes?who would high-kick before and after the screen lit up. After falling into disarray in the '70s, the Warner became a concert venue, saving it from the wrecking ball but forcing it to require a complete renovation in 1989 to remove years of grime and stray musical notes lodged between seat cushions. At the reopening gala, a host of stars performed, including Frank Sinatra in what would prove to be his last DC show.
