Looking for some activities to do this month? Here’s some great ideas!
November 2, 2019: It’s a Mac and Cheese Throwdown at the Phoenix. The gloves are off as some of the city’s most talented chefs go head-to-head in a MELTY-CHEESY-SMACKDOWN of epic proportions! YOU decide who will be named the MAC N’ CHEESE CHAMPION of Cincinnati.

November 9, 2019: Join us for opening night of the Greenacres Artists Guild Art Show: Cincinnati Masters Old and New. This cocktail party style event will feature paintings from the Nippert Private Collection not seen in decades, including work from Duveneck, Farny, and Hauser.

Hors d'oeuvres will be served throughout the evening and there will be a cash bar available. We ask that you kindly RSVP to assist us in our event preparation.
November Tuesdays and Thursdays, 2019: Candy Factory Tours are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 11:00 AM and 1:00 PM. The tours last approximately 35 minutes and you will receive samples of our delicious candy as part of the tour. After the tour you are invited to visit our retail shop to find some fun souvenirs to commemorate your day at the Doscher's Candy Factory! The cost is $3 with FREE ADMISSION for children who are age 4 and under. We prefer no more than 25 people per tour as it is difficult for our visitors to see and hear if we book larger groups. *Please note that you MUST have a confirmed reservation prior to your tour. *Factory tours are wheelchair accessible.
November 12, 2019: Take a Tour of the Universe with the Cincinnati Observatory and the University of Cincinnati. Explore space from the Earth and beyond! Fly past the moon, the planets, the stars, and galaxies to the edge of what is known. Bring your questions about the Cosmos, and our Observatory Scientist will answer as many as he can. View through the oldest operational telescope in the country, weather permitting. Ad Astra!
November 15-17, 2019: It’s a special Holiday Open House at Rookwood Pottery! On Friday and Saturday, enjoy festivities including complimentary sweets, savory bites, and drinks.
