  • Cincinnati International Wine
    The Cincinnati Film Festival showcases moving pictures from all over the globe from October 8 to October 16. Your all-day pass (a $20 value) gets you access to a full day of screenings and workshops. Start your cineday with the Shorts Block 9, a collection of short films playing at the Esquire Theater, and then hop over to Main St. Cinema to catch "Runaways: Producing In Ohio," as a panel of local industry insiders discuss the past, present, and future of Ohio film production. Locavores can cheer on hometown heroes at the Esquire during 48 Hour Film Project: Take 2, a mash-up of mini-movies produced by Cincinnati filmmakers, before indulging in behind-the-scenes voyeurism with a screening of Saturday Night, a 90-minute Saturday Night Live documentary directed by actor James Franco. The weeklong film fest's Awards Gala will be held on Friday, October 15 at Memorial Hall, where a special award will be presented to musician/TV personality/producer Nick Lachey for his contributions to the local production community. A ticket to the gala (a $25 value) gives formal-loving filmophiles an excuse to break out tuxes and ball gowns, as this gala is black-tie optional with a required tweed-based business-dress minimum. Check the program guide for a complete list of screenings. Organizers recommend you arrive at all events 30 minutes ahead of time to procure the best seats in the house, away from the permanent front-row installations of 10-gallon hats and actual honey-filled beehives.

  • The Rum Lab
    In the days before Paul Revere made his midnight ride, colonial North Americans favored one spirit above all others: rum. But while the delicious nectar?fermented and distilled from sugarcane and molasses?remains a top-shelf staple for daiquiris and mojitos, it seems to have gone down in status as America's signature liquor. Fortunately, the devoted enthusiasts of The Rum Lab have created the MidWest Rum Fest, a traveling expo that aims to give the dark, golden beverage back its crown without us falling back under the rule of King George III. As live tropical music floats through the air, guests become rum aficionados by tasting new cocktails, attending seminars from rum creators, and watching bartenders clash in a mixology demonstration.

  • 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. 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-artist Stan Goldberg, Firefly's Jewel Staite, Jim Steranko, and George Perez. 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.

  • Mac Sabbath
    More than half a century ago, three partners raised a vibrant, multicolored tent on an underdeveloped industrial site and established the Westbury Music Fair. It followed its first production, The King and I, with a decade of top-name talent and Broadway musicals. Then, recognizing its place on the theater scene was permanent, it planted its roots as a fully enclosed theater-in-the-round. Expanding its repertoire to match its new digs, the theater showcased performers such as The Who, Bruce Springsteen, and Julie Andrews. Today, past a lounge blazing in purple and red lights, guests find that same circular stage hosting equally great musical acts, musical theater, and competitive musical chairs.

  • Cincinnati Holiday Market and Food & Treats Show
    The Greater Cincinnati Holiday Market brings boutique shops and specialty stores together into the Duke Energy Convention Center to create a seasonal shopping mecca for one-of-a-kind gifts. A portion of the market is dedicated entirely to food and treats, like fine chocolates, charcuterie, jams, and olive oils, while other areas deal in trendy home decor and fashion. There's even a booth staffed by Santa himself, where he invites children to tell him their holiday wishes and physicists to discuss the locomotion of flying reindeer. The event also hosts several seminars throughout the event, where vendors will host holiday demos and how-tos.
