News from Downtown week of July 6thJuly 09, 2020
If you’ve missed seeing live musicians around Downtown Cincinnati, I have great news – The Street Stage Project, a partnership of 3CDC, the Cincinnati Music Accelerator (CMA), and funded by ArtsWave, returns this summer with more than 500 performances by over two dozen local musicians. This project will include paid musicians who will perform in various public spaces in the Central Business District and Over-the-Rhine, creating vibrancy in underutilized spaces. That’s music to my ears!
Light programming is also returning to Fountain Square, with lunchtime vendors, musical acts and other fun activities for those living, working and visiting Downtown Cincinnati. Enjoy an acoustic set or bring some friends to trivia night while enjoying a cold beverage at the Grove bar. Seating will be spaced apart to allow for proper social distancing.

Dine-in service is now available at both locations, with limited capacity. Restaurant hours are Mon-Sat, 10:30 a.m. – 7 p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. For more updates, click here.
It has been exciting to watch the renovations over the past few months at the new Sugar n’ Spice location, and we now have an opening date. Located at 1203 Sycamore Street, the second location for local favorite Sugar n’ Spice will offer its famous “wispy-thin” pancakes and other breakfast items, with some new lunch additions. You can still get a rubber ducky on your birthday, too. The Business Courier has published some great photos of the interior, which you can see here. The restaurant officially opens this Saturday and will be open from 7 a.m. – 3 p.m. daily.
Governor DeWine has has passed a mandatory mask mandate for Hamilton County.

So be sure to bring your masks with you when you head downtown.
