Dan Wells Was Right!!
Washington Square Park is beautiful.
Good Tuesday morning everyone. Dan Wells reported from the park a week ago Friday. He couldn't stop talking about how great it looked. His words prompted me to stop by shortly after, and I was truly impressed. It was on a weekend, and it was unbearably hot. The park was still packed with kids, their parents, people walking their dogs. It was so great to see. Not too long ago, I wouldn't have even thought about stopping by Washington Park. Not during the day. Never at night. I would assume many of the people who filled the park felt like me. These days it is a much different story. Just a few blocks away is the Gateway Quarter, filled with restaurants, nightspots, coffee houses and other thriving businesses. There is a new restaurant opening on near the park called "The Anchor." It will be Race Street's second restaurant. According to the website, wine dine me, it will be a urban seafood restaurant at 14th and Race. The owner, Derek dos Anjos moved back to town from Brooklyn where is operated a similar restaurant.
A lot of great things are happening in Over-the-Rhine. Come check it out.
