URBANexchange Partners with Walnut Hills Redevelopment Foundation for Wednesday Event

We’re partnering with the Walnut Hills Redevelopment Foundation this month and bringing the URBANexchange to local home decor shop Hinge. Join us Wednesday September 18 in Walnut Hills for beer, s’mores, giant jenga and more!

We’re changing it up this month and co-hosting the event with the folks over at Walnut Hills Redevelopment Foundation(WHRF). The event will be at Hinge, a home decor store that recently opened in Walnut Hills located at 711 E. McMillan Avenue.

Owners David Piper Jr. and Amanda Wilson recently relocated to Cincinnati from Chicago. The retail space specializes in selling repurposed furniture and other items. The fire pit in the back yard will be on and s’mores will be on hand. Also there will be giant jenga for anyone wanting to demonstrate their jenga skills.

The event is BYOB and we’ll be bringing some brews to the event. Parking will be across the street at Becks Hardware.

“Our monthly happy hours tend to highlight the many great gathering places in the neighborhood,” Kevin Wright, WHRF Executive Director told UrbanCincy, “We’re pretty excited to partner up with UrbanCincy for this month’s event.”

Held monthly, URBANexchange is 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.

As always, there is no formal presentation or formal anything, and there is no cover charge for attending.

WHRF will also be giving out a gift certificate for one of Hinge’s DIY classes with the purchase of raffle tickets. All money made at the event will be donated to help continue the operations of the WHRF.

So drop on by for some beer, s’mores and meet new people in a new place. Hope to see everyone there!
