URBANexchange Returns to the Moerlein Lager House Wednesday evening

We’ll be back at the Moerlein Lager House for URBANexchange on Wednesday, August 14. This month we’ll be giving away two copies of local photographer Ronny Salerno’s new book.

Salerno coverThis month’s URBANexchange returns to the Moerlein Lager House biergarten where the beer flows freely and the pretzels are warm and plentiful. The event will be held on Wednesday August 14 from 5:30pm to 8:30pm.

Held monthly, URBANexchange has become the place where urban enthusiasts trade ideas, share a drink and get to know one another.

The event is a casual way to unwind from the day and an opportunity to meet similar like minded people. There is no formal presentation or formal anything, and there is no cover charge for attending.

For this month’s event we are hosting local photographer and fellow blogger Ronny Salerno, who has just released his new book, The Future is One of Mighty Ducks T-Shirts and Discmen. The book features many photographs from his long career of photographing abandoned buildings and theme parks.

Salerno’s photography won him local media attention for capturing the state of many forgotten places throughout the Midwest. His latest photo projects include Suburbia Lost and 224Cincy which can be found on his blog Queen City Discovery. The blog recently celebrated its five year anniversary.

At the event we will hold a drawing for two lucky attendees to win a  free copy of his new book. So come down to the Moerlein Lager House for drinks, fun and a chance to win a book filled with amazing photography!
