    You may not be able to catch an in-person performance at the Aronoff Center after dinner right now, but there are still plenty of reasons to head down to 6th and Walnut streets for live entertainment, delicious food and great drinks at some of your favorite restaurants. Prime Cincinnati continues to provide live music every Wednesday and Thursday from 6-9 p.m., with martini specials for $7 all day on Wednesdays and wine specials every Thursday.

    Right next door, Street City Pub offers all day, every day happy hours, as well as 50% off wine bottles every Wednesday. Stop in on Thursdays for Last Call Trivia from 7-9 p.m. On Friday, Sept. 11, the monthly “Havana Bohemian Night” returns, featuring the Amador Sisters and Pedro Beroes playing fun and lively Latin music from 7-10 p.m. Reservations for this event are required, and includes a $10 cover charge and $20 food and beverage minimum per person. For more information, contact Elise Lemen at elise.lemen@primecincy.com.

    Across the street, owner David Falk has created a new way of enjoying meals at his upscale restaurant, Boca. Patrons can now choose from various take-and-bake options through the new concept, Domo, meaning “cook at home.” This service includes delivery and each meal feeds four people. Choose from tasty options like Sotto's Lasagna Bolognese Dinner and Nada's Braised Chicken Enchilada Dinner. This is a great way to enjoy delicious meals at home while helping to support a local business.  

    If you have been missing the experience of live theater, the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company has a creative way to enjoy its latest performance. Tomorrow night, the theater company will be hosting a free, live performance of Macbeth in the parking lot of the Cincinnati Museum Center, with the event called Shakespeare in the Park(ing lot). Patrons can remain in their cars to watch the show or bring lawn chairs and blankets to set up in socially distanced spots in the parking lot. Grab your seat before the show begins at 7 p.m.

    We were all saddened to hear that Riverfest had been canceled this year, but thankfully we can still enjoy the famous Rozzi fireworks on Sunday. WEBN-FM recently announced that the fireworks will be broadcast live on Local 12 from a “secret location,” adding a bit of mystery to the event. Tune in to Channel 12/WKRC on Sunday evening at 9:07 p.m. to enjoy the show!
