The Emery

So.  We did it.  We went to the re-opening of The Emery in Cincinnati.  It.  Was.  Amazing.  Cincinnati is incredible, and Mike and I had a great time down there.

We looked snazzy, we shopped at Tiffany’s, and we found a couple of really cool bars before we hit up The Emery.  Mike drank a bourbon beer (which he raved about) and we found a young hip place, too.  Then we went to 20 Below for our tickets, got our programs, of which I WAS A PART OF!

Saw my friend Elyse from high school, met her boyfriend, MET DREW LACHEY, met Justin (also from 98 Degrees), met Tina and Tara, and had a great time.  Over the Rhine was amazing and the dancing and art and just pure glory of it all was moving.  There’s a lot to say, but below are some of the pictures.  🙂

Tina Manchise and Tara Lindsey Gordon, thank you for letting me be involved.  Thank you for making me cry.  Thank you for giving me a chance to be apart of something so wonderful.

The next morning, Mike and I had breakfast in Kentucky and drove to my hometown for my Grandpa Gene’s 81st.  Pictures tomorrow!

The Requiem Project: Reviving the Emery Theatre

So there’s this project that I’m involved with.  It’s a pretty cool thing, and I think you all should know about it.

It’s called The Requiem Project, and it’s all about reviving the Emery Theatre in Over-the-Rhine Cincinnati and making it a place for the arts.

A few months back, my friend Elyse from high school contacted me about the opportunity to help write and assemble artist statements from all of the partners involved with reviving The Emery.  My role?  Writer and Collector of Stories.  I had the pleasure of communicating with most of the partners involved and hearing about their art, and how they feel about The Emery.  Each and every statement is moving, and I am excited to see them come together.

It’s an incredible endeavor that my new-found friends Tara Lindsey Gordon and Tina Manchise have begun.  They have big dreams and lots of ambition, and they have assembled a dream team of artists.

On 11.11.11, I will be attending The Requiem Project event, all dolled up, and ready to bring the arts back to life in Cincinnati’s most acoustically-sound theatre–The Emery.  I’m really excited about this.  Mike and I just reserved our hotel room and we’re looking forward to exploring Cincinnati and to meeting all of the wonderful people that I’ve been working with over the phone.

Check it out, spread the word, and help out if you can.  This is going to be big.
