High Times @ UC

Being involved, slightly, at UC, I am watching the happenings, at our largest local institution of higher learning, and basking in the good news emanating from UC.
It can't be the work of one person but things are certainly more exciting since Nancy Zimpher took the helm, I'm prejudice.
OLLI( The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Cincinnati) has had a 6% increase in enrollment and has offered the most new courses ever during the current Quarter.
CCM just produced "How to Succeed in Business" to rave review and sold out audiences, this is really not unusual for CCM "Mainstage" Productions.
The Bearcat football team is with reach of goals, or bowels, once though only imaginable and campus spirit just keeps building.
I haven't even gotten into the improved Academic situation, and that is what it's all about.

Any way, our fall Quarter class, "Let's Eat Out" had 38 students, up from 12, four years ago, and we had off campus experiences with lunch at "Cumin" and a special Brunch at "Honey" on back to back Tuesdays.
In the meantime Marilyn and I have eaten out plenty; a listing for the past 2 weeks follows.
"Nada", 600 Walnut-513-721-6232 Upscale Mexican. I love the Ceviche
"Walt's Hitching Post", Ft. Thomas, KY-859-331-0494 Our favorite place for ribs
"Zip's", Mt. Lookout Square, Hamburgers, Chili and beer for current and past P&G'ers and their offspring
