May 13 is known locally as "513 Day," a day to celebrate our love for the Queen City (which happens to be located in area code 513). 

In honor of the holiday, Cincinnati's Rookwood Pottery has partnered with FC Cincinnati (which plays its first game in the new TQL stadium on May 16) to release a series of items to show some futbol pride. 

Beginning May 13, an FC Cincinnati-themed mug set, coaster set and ornament will be available for pre-order on Rookwood's website. 

The ornament ($35) features a white FC Cincinnati crest with orange details and a blue ribbon; the set of two FCC coasters ($45) are also white with orange and blue glazed details; and the set of two mugs ($95) come glazed in blue and orange. 

A release from Rookwood explains that through the same partnership, Rookwood designed a 7'10" x 5'10" tile installation in TQL's Legends Room.

"Just as they’ve done for over a century, Rookwood artists crafted every individual tile by-hand, making each piece one-of-a-kind, and an enduring symbol of Cincinnati’s rich heritage and continued legacy today," the email release says.
