True Theater, the local group that organizes shows of real, live storytelling, presents another evening of true tales tonight at Know Theater with trueGRIT. Hear accounts of survival, determination and courage told by the people who lived through it — regular folks in the community. Tonight’s show will feature a man who took on his employers to fight racial discrimination; a woman who’s life changed with a gunshot; a man who took on nature in a brave fight and more intriguing, relatable stories. Tickets to the 7:30 p.m. event are $15.
Feeling crafty, but can’t seem to get past the DIY boards on Pinterest? The Contemporary Arts Center hosts a unique, weekly craft night with “One Night One Craft.” Each Monday, crafters of all levels are invited to learn a new project, mingle with friends, enjoy a drink and walk home with a fantastic handmade item. This week, Professor John Humphries will instruct visitors on painting with wine, coffee and other pigmented beverages. Attendees can expect to create around 5-6 drawings by the end of the night. And don’t worry, the wine isn’t just for painting — there will be a cash bar. Just bring a $5 material fee and leaver your artistic reservations at the door. One Night One Craft: Vintage Views of the City - Painting with Wine runs 6-8 p.m. tonight.
Jewish young professionals (ages 21-35) and their dates are invited to a wood-fired pizza cooking class tonight at A Forkable Feast. Access (an initiative of The Mayerson Foundation) presents this event, where JYPs will create their own pizzas from scratch, fire them up and —best of all — eat ‘em! The fun begins at 7 p.m. Guests should have already RSVPed here.
The Clermont County Fair is in full swing this week, with plenty of exhibits, rides, classic grub and various contests. Today, visitors can check out the Valley Exotics petting zoo (noon-9 p.m.), carnival rides (2-11 p.m.), “baby contest” (which I can only assume is a child auction; 4 and 8 p.m.), a tractor pull at 7 p.m. and live entertainment from Willis Music students (7-11 p.m.). The fair continues 8 a.m.-midnight daily through Saturday. Admission is $10, most rides included with entry.
