50,000.

Six years ago, I found a little app called Foursquare. And I loved my Foursquare. The check-in game portion of Foursquare spun off and became was is now Swarm. Today,
I logged my 50,000th check-in on Swarm… 

I still really like my check-ins!:)

Kobra in Cincy!

World-famous muralist Eduardo Kobra is turning the once bare facade of the Fifth Third Bank parking garage on Walnut Street into a public masterpiece. The mural pays tribute to Ohioan Neil Armstrong – whose “one giant leap for mankind” will forever be remembered as a moment of breathtaking awe. From ArtWorks website…

Neil Armstrong was a humble leader who inspired generations of students, explorers and innovators. Tune in over the next two weeks as Eduardo Kobra (fresh off of completing a record breaking mural for the Rio Olympics), works alongside Artworks local artists and youth Apprentices to bring his vision to life.

Commemorative Streetcar Tokens.

The Cincinnati Streetcar‘s grand opening weekend is set for September 9th through 11th. This afternnon, I picked up a couple of the super-special, limited-edition 2016 Commemorative Streetcar Tokens from The Bus Stop in the Mercantile Center…

The tokens are good for unlimited rides for the first week of revenue service. But I think these tokens will be staying in their packaging. These are going to be great souvenirs of the dawn of the Cincinnati Streetcar era. 🙂
