Do you love dogs? Do you love beer? Good news, because both of those enthusiasms will be entertained at the annual Balls Around the Block fundraiser in downtown Cincinnati. Mingle and drink with fellow dog lovers as you begin your journey at the Contemporary Arts Center downtown and "pub crawl" to some of the best bars downtown. Every stop will be only a half hour to ensure that your dog won't be the one who needs to walk you around by 9 p.m.
To participate, you'll need to join a team, and you'll travel from bar to bar with the guidance of a leader or two. Bars on the crawl include Mynt Martini, Cincy's on Sixth, Play and Righteous Room, to name a few. Wrap it all up at Scene on Walnut Street. Most of the bars are offering drink specials to BATB participants and all of the ticket proceeds benefit to the Fido Field, a free dog park downtown that allows your dogs to play and interact with other dogs while you interact with other dog lovers. The question is: Would cat lovers hold an event this awesome? $30. Check in at the Contemporary Arts Center by 6 p.m. (44 E. Sixth St., Downtown). ballsaroundtheblock.com.
