Introduction to Cincinnati People

Welcome to the first edition of Cincinnati People, a digital digest about and for the people of Cincinnati and those who love our Queen City. One part civic cheerleader and other part charismatic storyteller, Cincinnati People will share the stories of people doing interesting work and making significant contributions to our city. We will throw in a shot of good cheer, food, travel and culture each week.

This week, I am thrilled to introduce you to one of the smartest and wittiest women I know: LPK’s Valerie Jacobs who will share some ideas on trends we should be thinking about in 2017 in a story by veteran storyteller John Erardi.

Is it champagne or sparkling wine? Hart & Cru’s Kevin Hart will let us in on the secrets of champagne and share his tasting notes on six bottles of bubbles we should try.

If you are looking for a slice of paradise this winter, look no further than Palm Island, Florida. Located on the Gulf Coast smack dab between Sarasota and Ft. Myers, it’s Old Florida at its best.

As we begin 2017, we have also outlined a schedule of events happening in Cincinnati throughout the year that you won’t want to miss. Print this PDF and post it to the fridge for reference.

We welcome your story ideas each week as we begin this editorial experiment. Please don’t hesitate to contact me at
