A local family-owned farm is launching garden workshops and hosting a Family Fun event Memorial Day weekend. Read on for all the details. 

 

Blooms and Berries Farm Market is a garden center, market, and a friendly place for families to visit.

What started as a desire to grow an assortment of plants became a blossoming family farm that offers visitors the opportunities to learn about and enjoy the plants that grow there.

Cathy and David Probst have always been motivated by the value of hard work, and it’s something they wanted to instill in their children. So, leading by example, during the spring of 1999, they launched Blooms & Berries Farm Market, offering seasonal flowers, produce, and fun events for the whole family.

“Our fourth-generation farm has been part of our family since 1939,” says Owner Cathy Probst. “A lot has changed in the last 70 years, including the passing of David in 2005. Today, however, we like to think he would be proud of how far we’ve come.”

Each summer, the market employs nearly a dozen students and teaches them teamwork, life lessons, and the value of a hard day’s work. “We nourish the earth so it can nourish us and our community with acres of beautiful, delicious fresh and local produce,” adds Probst.

Guests visiting Blooms and Berries Farm Market can enjoy activities such as picking strawberries and blueberries. There’s also a playground so that families visiting the market can let the kids run loose and play.

For those who really love to spend time at Blooms and Berries Farm Market, there’s the opportunity to book birthday and family parties as well as events for Scouts, religious groups, and other types of gatherings including team building and corporate groups.

There are several events scheduled at Blooms and Berries Farm Market throughout the summer, including the upcoming Family Fun Weekend May 26-27.

For $5, families can enjoy Memorial Day weekend on the farm. “There will be animals, music in the sound garden, hayrides, a Family Scavenger Hunt, and the chance to play on the farm playground,” says Probst. “Plus, admission to the event is free to veterans and active military members as well as free ice cream.”

The picnic area will feature hot dogs and BBQ sandwiches available for purchase as well as ice cream, fudge, and other tasty treats from the market’s store.

The event will be held on Saturday from 10 am to 7 pm and on Sunday from 11 am to 7 pm. You can purchase your ticket by clicking here<https://blooms-berries-farm-market.myshopify.com/>.

Other events throughout the summer include the opening of produce stands and even the fall farm festival that’s planned for the end of the season.

Probst says you’ll also want to keep your eyes peeled for other events offered by the market such as the Veggie Garden Workshop with Farmer Jeff. Events like this give guests the chance to learn veggie gardening tips and tricks, such as what makes a good fertilizer, how to keep disease down in your garden, and the types of varieties to plant in your gardens.

Learn about a local business that’s helping you create beautiful and unique home decor while enjoying time with friends and family.

 

The Evergreen Designs offers sign parties that allow guests to create their own unique home decor pieces.

Cincy Chic: What is The Evergreen Designs?
Brittany Kauffman, Founder of The Evergreen Designs: We specialize in wood sign painting parties. They are perfect for any age and especially for people who claim they aren’t artistic at all. Our fool-proof stencil makes it so easy! We also specialize in building custom furniture pieces.

Cincy Chic: What’s the inspiration behind the business?
Kauffman: There’s something really satisfying about starting with a blank piece of wood, some tools and making something beautiful. My favorite part of every party is when my guests are excited about something that THEY made. I really try to encourage them to step out of their comfort zone by maybe trying a new color or by using the nail gun. A lot of times this is the first time many of them have ever held a power tool. It’s really a great feeling.

Cincy Chic: Who’s behind it?
Kauffman: We are a husband & wife team. My husband Ryan builds all of the signs & furniture. I have an idea and he brings it to life.  I do all the designing for our stencils and instruct the parties. We also have a small team of amazing girls who instruct our parties for us whenever we need help.

Cincy Chic: How much does it cost to attend or host a party?
Kauffman: Prices range from $40-$65 depending on sign choice. There is a $20 booking fee for mobile parties and no booking fee in our shop. Plus, guests receive 10% off all store items when their party is hosted in the store.

Cincy Chic: What makes The Evergreen Designs unique?
Kauffman: I think what makes us unique is that we do it all. We don’t outsource any of our work and are involved in every single party. We really like to build a relationship with our customer and we’ve actually made a lot of friends along the way.

Cincy Chic: Is there anything new on the horizon for your business?
Kauffman: Yes! We are so excited to be partnering with another local small business mom Emily Little from Queen City Alchemy. We will be opening our first boutique and workshop at the end of May at 1808 Race St in Over-the-Rhine.

Melissa McCarthy brings college-bound comedy to the big screen, but is Life of the Party a fab fête or a Greek tragedy? Read on to see what our movie critic says.

 

“Hi – I’m every Midwestern mom you’ve ever seen in a Hollywood movie where I get to smile!” Deanna (Melissa McCarthy) shows her school spirit in a scene from Warner Bros. new comedy LIFE OF THE PARTY. Credit: Hopper Stone. © 2018 Warner Bros. Pictures. All rights reserved.

 

WATCH THE TRAILER(S) HERE: 


KEY CAST MEMBERS: Melissa McCarthy, Molly Gordon, Maya Rudolph, Julie Bowen, Gillian Jacobs, Stephen Root, Debby Ryan, Jimmy O. Yang, Chris Parnell, Luke Benward, Adria Arjona, Sarah Baker, Matt Walsh, Heidi Gardner and Jessie Ennis

WRITER(S): Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone

DIRECTOR(S): Ben Falcone 

WEB SITE: http://www.lifeoftheparty-movie.com/

HERE’S THE STORY: Deanna (Melissa McCarthy) is having a great time; her daughter Maddie (Molly Gordon) is starting her final year of college and she is set to go on a dream vacation to Italy with her husband Dan (Matt Walsh). 

Then Dan tells her she wants a divorce and her world is turned completely upside down.

Buoyed by her best friend Christine (Maya Rudolph), Deanna decides to overcome her sadness about her marriage ending by righting the one thing she’s always regretted: Not finishing her college degree by going back to school with her daughter. But as she will soon find out, being a college student in her 40s is going to be even wilder than it was when she was in her 20s … Especially if her daughter’s friends have anything to say about it.  

WHO WILL LIKE THIS FILM THE MOST? Melissa McCarthy fans; Mike & Molly fans; Lifetime movie fans

WHO WON’T (OR SHOULDN’T) LIKE THIS MOVIE? People hoping for something more like McCarthy’s earlier work; many adult males who will have nothing to relate or latch on to; people who will be bored by the film’s cute but simplistic nature. 

SO IS IT GOOD, BAD OR JUST AWFUL? Released in time for Mother’s Day, Life of the Party could best be described as a simple but cute comedy, or, more descriptively, an inspirational comedy … If the Lifetime Network made comedies where some man didn’t murder a woman.

McCarthy, who co-wrote the movie with her husband and the film’s director Ben Falcone (who continues his short but effective cameo streak), must have had a very specific target audience in mind when creating Life of the Party: late 30s to early 50s age suburbanite women who have young daughters they want to bond with – because nearly every scene in the film feels like one big mother-daughter field trip with a few laughs here and there for good measure. Nothing like any of her previous efforts save for the forgettable Tammy, Life of the Party is cute, fun in parts … But lacks anything than its overt, sappy charm to make it last once you’ve left the theater. 

The side characters are fairly one-dimensional but somewhat fun sidekicks, the story is easily digestible and again, McCarthy makes her character relatable as she has a fairly common story. But there again lies the issue as the film itself feels rather common, right down to its cut-and-paste ending. Maya Rudolph gets to serve as most of the film’s comic relief, even though she doesn’t seem to be allowed to take it as far as she could.

And that’s the underlying tragedy of Life of the Party: Despite all the scenarios where McCarthy and company find themselves in that would lend to more outrageous, more comedic moments, much of the film feels restrained so it can stick to a PG-13 rating. There is a much funnier, much more heartfelt movie waiting to get out of Life of the Party, but since the film would be more accurately named “Life of the Afternoon Brunch Party,” it sadly never materialized.

Consider going to this party if you need a simple outing for your mom or middle-aged friend … Otherwise, this classic movie scene might sum up how this party may feel for anyone else.

Learn about upcoming drawing workshops at the Taft Museum that’ll help you channel your inner Tiffany.

When you hear Tiffany’s, the first thing that comes to mind is probably the landmark jewelry store at the center of Breakfast at Tiffany’s. However, that’s not all the Tiffany family was known for.

There’s Louis Comfort Tiffany, the son of Tiffany & Co. Founder Charles Lewis Tiffany. Louis was an artist and designer with a passion for the decorative arts. Best known for his work in stained glass, and served as the Design Director at Tiffany & Co.

As part of the Taft Museum of Art’s special exhibition Louis Comfort Tiffany: Treasures from the Driehaus Collection, the museum is hosting a Drawn to Tiffany series.

According to Ellen Stedtefeld, the Senior Manager of Adult Programs at the Taft Museum of Art, Drawn to Tiffany is a series of drawing workshops planning in partnership with the Manifest Drawing Center. “The workshops are led by Manifest Drawing Center’s Samantha Haring Art and aims to guide attendees through the eyes of an artist,” she adds.

“Tiffany was inspired by nature, and we are too,” she says. “We thought drawing from nature in the Taft’s beautiful garden would be the perfect complement to the special exhibition.”

The workshop includes a visit through the special exhibition before heading outside the museum, where you’ll base your own drawings on nature, where Tiffany found much of his inspiration.

Stedtefeld says the workshop is suitable for all skill levels of artists, from beginners to seasoned artists. The cost is $24 for Taft members and $40 for non-members, but the cost includes supplies as well as tickets to the special exhibition.

There are two more workshops planned for Saturdays in May – May 12 and May 19. “These workshops take place at the Taft from 1-4 pm,” says Stedtefeld. “During the three-hour workshop we visit the special exhibition, our studio space, and the Taft garden.”

If you’d like to sign up for the program, or see other special events hosted by the Taft Museum, visit www.taftmuseum.org. You can also see the event on Facebook.

A: For me the inspiration is helping artists and nonartists on their creative journey.

Cincy Chic: Where is Pique located?

We are always trying to change and evolve. We tend to show a lot of time based art in PIQUE and want to encourage a thriving Performance Art scene in Cincinnati.

N: We are inclusive, not that other places aren’t but we strive to bring people who might be scared to enter a gallery a spot in front. We want them to experience art. #Artexperience

A: We welcome everyone and meet them where they are in their creative journey.

Learn about a local dining experience that was once members-only, but recently opened its doors to serve the public as well.

 

The Coach House Tavern & Grille is located in Hamilton.

The Coach House Tavern & Grille, located in Hamilton, opened as a members-only setting, but now the public can enjoy this unique dining experience as well.

“The Coach House Tavern & Grille was established in 2002, carrying on the membership tradition of the Hamilton City Club while providing a quality dining option on the west side of Hamilton. After more than a decade of serving as a members-only dining destination, in 2016, The Coach House shifted its membership model,” Katie Wright, media relation for The Coach House says. “Today we welcome all diners, but offer a membership that provides valuable perks — including food and drink incentives —for those who dine with us.” 

The Coach House is unique because they boast an Executive Chef with extensive high-end culinary experience. “The Coach House’s Executive Chef Jared Whalen honed his culinary skills in some of the top restaurants in Cincinnati under Chef Jean-Robert de Cavel. After working with Chef Jean-Robert for more than a decade, Chef Whalen decided to return to his hometown to be part of Hamilton’s revitalization,” says Wright. 

 

The menu at The Coach House changes usually depending on the season. “The frequently changing menu features fresh, locally-sourced ingredients carefully crafted into dishes that bring a downtown dining experience closer to home,” says Wright. 

Dishes that will be presented on the menu for spring and summer are: Asian crawfish with carrot, garlic, yellow pepper, broccoli, and black soba noodles, roasted asparagus and spinach salad; veal ravioli; and lemon-berry Napoleon. Also, for brunch: creamy stuffed French toast and Eggs Benedict. The Coach House predicts these to be quick favorites preferred by customers. 

The Centennial

A signature drink on The Coach House menu is The Centennial which is a cocktail. This cocktail includes Bulliet Rye Whiskey, Disaronno Amaretto, house-made simple syrup and orange bitters

“The Coach House creates a downtown dining experience closer to home. Located in Hamilton Ohio, guests can enjoy their meals in a welcoming atmosphere near a roaring fireplace in the winter or on a breezy patio on a warm summer’s night. Its seasonal menu, featuring creatively combined classic dishes with delicious twists, along with its impressive selection of craft beers and wines rival the best restaurants in Cincinnati,” says Wright. 

Wright says they’re celebrating moms in style this year at The Coach House with a Mother’s Day Brunch Buffet. Seatings are at 11am1pm, and 3pm and pricing is $32 per person. Children 10 and under are $12 a person. 

The Coach House is open:

See how a local fitness guru turned her struggle with body image into a business that empowers women physically and emotionally.  

 

 

Beth Underhill FitLife empowers women to find their strong.

Self-esteem and image plays a significant role in the lives of women. The pursuit of “perfection” can take a toll on an individual, like it did to Beth Underhill.

Growing up, Underhill was an active child. With four siblings, active parents, and tons of extracurricular activities, she had a lot going on.

“My childhood was filled with love and energy,” she says. “Yet my strong desire to please others place its stronghold on me early on in shaping much of my adult life with a 26-year eating disorder battle.”

She says the “war” of an eating disorder was a struggle, and she often found herself praying to wake up the next day. However, despite the weakness of her body, she says that there was a small, neverending flame that flickered inside her soul.

The passion to love herself set her down a path to life changing events, including marriage and giving birth. Eventually, she founded an all women’s fitness studio – the now closed Bella Forza.

While her personal life flourished, she was given yet another obstacle: cancer. “Faced with mortality, fear stared me in the face with such words as Stage 3, chemotherapy, and radiation,” she explains. “Yet, emergencing like never before, was my newfound fortitude, determined to stand tall, head high, glaring back at this ugliness. It crumbled before my eyes like a condemned building. I left fear in the dust along with the cancer.”

Beth Underhill, Founder of Beth Underhill FitLife.

A year after treatment, Underhill was entering powerlifting competitions and living a healthy, nutritious lifestyle. She also launched Beth Underhill FitLife, an environment where women can learn, share, connect, and grow without the angst of judgement.

“We all face challenges at FitLife provides a home for many that women that may be struggling with issues related to weight, food, body image, self-esteem, and more,” says Underhill. “By learning effective solutions in a supportive and nurturing community, we see women overcome their obstacles with a deeper love for themselves.”

Underhill runs FitLife herself, with support from her family. She also gets assistance with her #OwnYourStrong Boot Camp from coach Verona.

The #OwnYourStrong Boot Camp is offered Monday through Friday, with sessions at 5:19 am, 6:00 am, 3:50 pm, and 6:15 pm, with an option Saturday Shred Session. Other sessions include Raise the Bar, Power Core, and Instructor Choice – all of which are offered at Power 3 Fitness Coaching in Silverton.

Also at Power 3 Fitness Coaching is the PowHERhouse Lifting Program, offered Monday through Friday between 5 and 8 am. This class teaches women the basics of strength training and powerlifting.

Those who need help getting back to the basics with food, water, and sleep can check out the 21 Day Lifestyle Restart. This option focuses on establishing habit-based, intuitive eating.

While Underhill’s story that led her to launch the FitLife movement is unique, it also helps women to find their worth – whether it’s physically, mentally, or in business.

“Through my journeys with an eating disorder, cancer, and entrepreneurship, along with the valuable input of women over the last 11 years, I’ve been able to create unique programs of self-discovery,” says Underhill. “The FitLife movement is on a mission to ensure every woman can declare their self-esteem daily by not only stating but also believing this – ‘I am enough.’”

Underhill says that she’s currently planning the release of a business anthology that will include a chapter on her upcoming mental strength programs under the umbrella WORTH – an acronym for Women Owning Resolve with their Heart. “An offshoot of the original program for teenagers is in the beta stage with the hopes of launching it in schools next year,” she adds. “In addition, I am launching a consulting service – Socially Fit – that assists fitness business owners with branding, social media, and honing in on their strengths (no pun intended) in order to market more efficiently.”
