After a long hiatus, BlurgGirl is back on the Cincy blog scene, and one of her first posts back is right up our alley. In response to today’s IKEA opening, she is challenging her readers to post their favorite local places for buying furniture – with bonus points for locally or regionally works. Have one in mind? Head on over to BlurgGirl.

OTR and Findlay Market have a new wine store. Market Wines, an independant wine shop, opens up on March 29 across from the main Market building. Owner Michael Maxwell plans on offering wines designed to compliment the market’s main attraction, fresh, high-quality food. Organic, kosher and “biodynamic” wines will sit beside conventional grapes, and the shop also plans to offer micro-brews, imported beers and wine accessories so you have everything you need to get your drink on.
The only bad part in our opinion is no Sunday hours (we love spending Sunday mornings at Findlay), but weekday and Saturday hours are represented – Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9am – 5pm, Friday from 9am – 6pm and Saturday from 8am to 6pm.

Regular BuyCincy readers probably have noticed the “forum” link at the top of our page. Well, after working out (hopefully) all the bugs, we are ready to bring everyone on board. Starting today, we are going to be highlighting some of the best forums posts on BuyCincy’s main page. So, we hope you go on over to the forums, sign up for an account and interact with others interested about local shops, bars and restaurants. Here are some of the threads now going on over on the forums:

Okay, I realize it’s not Sunday, and so I suppose we should really be calling it ”Sale Monday” this week, but it just doesn’t have the same ring. Day of the week aside, however, we’re back to inform you of same great local sales. If you are a shopowner and are interested in having your sale appear in Sale Sunday contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. As always, keep reading for information on this week’s sales.

Whispers of wintry mix and white death are probably going to keep most people in the comfort of their homes this weekend, which is unfortunate because Bockfest 2008 is officially this weekend. We encourage you to brave the inclement weather to enjoy the festivities. Hit the jump for all the details:

What’s the deal?
we have been paying quite a bit of attention of Jean-Robert this past week.
First, we brought news of the opening of Lavomatic in the Gateway
Quarter – and shortly after that, first impressions from other blogs. Now, we
are all hyped up about our recent visit to Jean Robert’s Twist Lounge next to
Pigall’s, the scene for last Wednesday’s CityBeat’s Swizzle Soiree.

The Friends’ of the Public Library Gift Shop is, as manager Martha
Totten puts it, a secret she doesn’t want to keep, and after
investigating, we here at BuyCincy are happy to spread the word about
it. Located in the main public library on Vine Street, this delightful
little shop has been selling very low priced gently used books for 25
years. Aside from books, however, the shop can be seen as somewhat of a
creative literary theme park, selling literary games and dolls, and
just about any book-reading accessory you could ever need (booklights,
bookmarks, book totes…need I list more?)
