An evening in OTR

Final Friday means things are happening downtown in Over the Rhine. Stopped by We Have Become Vikings to pick up a few prints. Enjoyed meeting Matt (above left), having a brew and shooting the breeze with him and Jason. Then it was off to Indigo Hippo to look at the opening of a show that […]
