Lecture: Cincinnati in the «Naughty Nineties» with Greg Hand 6–7 p.m. and 8–9 p.m.
From the brothels of the West End to the beer gardens of Over-the-Rhine, from the hilltop dancehalls to the theaters and freak shows downtown, the Queen City in the 1890s was a salacious pool of sensual delights. Gambling, prostitution, hot ragtime music and gallons of booze fueled nighttime revelry throughout the “Naughty Nineties.” Greg Hand, Cincinnati Magazine contributing blogger, will take us on an illustrated tour of a decade when Cincinnati really was “Cin City.”
