Best of Cincinnati on the way

March 7, 2018 by  

The 2018 Best of Cincinnati, a celebration of all things that make the city great, is on the way. This year, the event will feature live music, great food, and prizes, with something added this year.

Festival organizers have come up with a new idea for people to carry tickets and other goodies around: every person who buys a ticket will receive a Bogart Concert Fanny Pack. The packs are not empty, however; they’re crammed with coupons and special offers from restaurants and vendors, and a few packs contain Golden Tickets. Like Willy Wonka, those who find a ticket will win fabulous prizes such as a ticket to a performance of Cirque du Soleil, Forecastle, Bunbury, or a similar festival or band.

Of course, the food and drink is the heart of the festival. Among the restaurants that will be participating are Court Street Lobster Bar, Nada, Macaron Bar, and the BonBonerie, among others.

Several neighborhood bars, such as Revel OTR and Queen City Radio will be at the festival to serve great-tasting cocktails. New this year, local breweries like MadTree and Rivertown will be serving craft beers.

Tickets are on sale now. The Best of Cincinnati takes place at The Phoenix on March 28, 2018, from 5.30 pm until 9 pm.

Events like this can be even more enjoyable if organizers work with a flyer printing company to create a handout with a list of vendors and where they’re located.
