It's a busy day in politics, as the Republican presidential primary in Florida will make or break Rudy Giuliani's candidacy and could push Mitt Romney or John McCain to the front-runner position. Pundits are weighing in this morning on last night's State of the Union Address by President Bush, his final one.
If you're looking for something to do today while you wait for the Florida results to come in, CityBeat's recommended events include Cincinnati World Cinema's special screening of the restored 1980s French film Diva at the Cincinnati Art Museum (see more here), Iraqi-American playwright Heather Raffo at the Ropes Lecture Series at UC, Wicked at the Aronoff Center (see Rick Pender's review here) and The Blonde, the Brunette and the Vengeful Redhead at Playhouse in the Park (see Rick's review here).
Recommended music events include Jeff Roberson (of Len's Lounge) and Ryan Malott (of 500 Miles to Memphis) doing the solo thing at Northside Tavern and Kid Rock tearing up Hara Arena in Dayton.
In blogland, Kevin Osborne reports on Cincinnati firefighters forced to become janitors in Bond Hill, Margo Pierce reports on a lawsuit filed against Ohio's new sex offender law and Keith Klenowski reviews Sunday night's Band of Horses show (with photos) and the Southgate House's new stage set-up.
Enjoy your Tuesday. Vote early and often.
