Kickball either conjures memories of intense schoolyard fun or ultimate gym class embarrassment. If you prefer the former, you’ll be happy to know Cincinnati Sports Kickball League is taking the game out of the playground and onto Washington Park’s Civic Lawn! Co-ed adult teams will compete each Wednesday, 6-9 p.m. through Sept. 19. If you haven’t signed up with a team or you’re more of a cheerleader, watch the fun from one of many surrounding benches. Or mosey over to the bandstand to check out free Wednesday Bluegrass concerts. The Tillers perform tonight at 7 p.m.
If you’re still upset you couldn’t make it to San Diego’s epic Comic-Con this year, share your woes with other local lovers of SciFi, fantasy TV shows and literature, comics and more at Cincinnati Geek Club.
