Fireside Pizza x Walnut Hills RF = Great Stuff


As our first week of thanks (#TogetherWeGrow) comes to a close, we'd like to solute an outstanding project that was spearheaded by the Walnut Hills Redevelopment Foundation. This one was dynamic, historic and quite tasty — Fireside Pizza.

Oftentimes we hear about and/or read about new developments, but never quite know where they came from, what considerations were made, or even just who was really involved. Did someone swoop in from out of town? Was the community involved in the conversation? Do the tenants fit the neighborhood? The great news, is that this time around everything was done right, mostly thanks to the WHRF and their consistent engagement with the people of Walnut Hills.

If you live in Cincinnati and have ever been to a Crafty Super Market or an outdoor even at the Clifton Cultural Arts Center, you may recognize the pizza trailer in this photo. Four or five years ago, that's how Fireside got its start.

They make quick, crispy crust, delicious pies, that you can easily pick up on the run. They get creative with toppings and sauces. They deliver food with a smile. But most importantly, they offer one of the city's few fire-cooked, thin crust pizzas at an extremely affordable price ...and I'm talking starting around $5 affordable.

Still the question remains, how did they find such a perfect brick & mortar location inside one of Cincinnati's most historic locations? That's where the Walnut Hills Redevelopment Foundation (our future PAR-Projects collaborators) stepped in. As fate would have it, Fireside Pizza was looking to expand their on-site catering operation as one of WHRF's most recent rehabilitation projects — the oldest standing firehouse in Cincinnati USA — was nearing completion  ...so please take three minutes to enjoy the video they've put together about this particular piece of historic architecture...

As we continue to look forward to working with Walnut Hills Redevelopment Foundation in 2015, we hope you'll take a moment to like their Facebook page, follow them on Twitter and/or join their email list.

But if you don't feel like being bothered with more positive stories of success and redevelopment, we hope you'll at least take a moment to visit Fireside Pizza at 773 E McMillan Street in Cincinnati, OH. While we were there, we enjoyed a sausage and banana pepper pie with red sauce, as well as a Pesto Plus pizza with mushrooms.

You won't be disappointed!







...and thanks again to team Walnut Hills Redevelopment Foundation. We're really looking forward to working with you in 2015. Let the good times roll...



Cheers to it all,
Jonathan

A Second Look For The First Time

If you’re not familiar with us, hello, we’re Professional Artistic Research Projects Incorporated. We’re a 501(c)3, not-for-profit organization based in Cincinnati, Ohio. The cool kids, and everyone else for that matter, call us PAR-Projects — pronounced / pär ˈpräjˌekts /  — and we’ve been creating experimental art experiences throughout Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky since 2010. 
If you're already familiar with PAR-, hello again! New to us or not, we hope you'll lend us a few moments to get through this post. Our goal is simple: We'd like to get reacquainted. A lot is going on with our growing organization so, as Executive Director, there's no better time to reintroduce ourselves. And if all goes well, this will become an annual address — a progress report of sorts.
Back to the basics though: Our mission is to help empower community in the arts. As educators, we provide weekend workshops & multi-week classes, related to career development & skills training. A…
