World's Longest Yard Sale
World's Longest Yard Sale

If the city smells especially savory, you must be catching the aroma of Cincy's unofficial favorite food as Glier’s Goettafest takes over Newport on the Levee. Tonight through Sunday, folks can grub on goetta nachos, corn dogs, reubens, sushi, chili and more (plus plenty of swine-free options). Expect festival staples like rides, games, children’s vendors, live music and — of course — a goetta coney contest. This is Cincinnati, after all. Tonight’s festivities run 5-11 p.m. with live music starting at 6. Admission is free and food runs $1-$6 per item.

All who work in a digital field or just enjoy talking shop with techies are invited to AIGA Cincinnati’s Web/Tech Drinkup tonight at Nicholson’s. Every first Thursday, all who enjoy web design, development, technology, digital marketing and social media are welcome to grab drinks and network with industry professionals. Enjoy appetizers and first drinks on the house (thanks to AIGA, Creatives on Call, and ChoreMonster) beginning at 5 p.m.

Tonight, Northside non-profit Dramakinetics hosts a trivia night to raise money for the organization’s performing arts classes for children and young adults. Swing by Northside Tavern between 6-9 p.m. for trivia throwdowns, drinks, raffles and more fun stuff. Ten bucks gets you a spot on a four-person trivia team, a door prize ticket and free food.

It’s day one of the World’s Longest Yard Sale, which stretches 690 miles from just north of Addison, Mich. to Gadsden, Ala. Rummage and haggle your way along US 127 8 a.m.-4 p.m. daily through Sunday. MainStrasse Village is the go-to spot for locals to find vintage goods, antique furniture and killer deals at this gigantic, 25th annual sale.

Don’t forget about free weekly events downtown like Salsa on the Square and Jazz in the Park. It's also a really good TV night, jussayin'.
