CINCINNATI - The best way to check out new works by local artists and the hippest shops in Cincinnati's historic Pendleton and Over-the-Rhine neighborhoods is to partake in Final Fridays.
Every last Friday of the month more than 20 galleries open their doors from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. to offer meet-the-artists receptions and refreshments. Local businesses, restaurants, bars and galleries all participate by offering specials or hosting exhibits.
Final Fridays began at the Pendleton Art Gallery and has now expanded to Main Street over the years.
