University of Cincinnati's very own Black Arts Collaborative packs out the cafe for a night of a cappella and R&B.
Due to the fact that we will be closing earlier during the summertime, our scheduled calendar and cafe events will be on hiatus until the middle of August.
Check back then for some great things in the works. We can't wait to start back up! Have a great summer.
Come and dance at one of the coolest venues for a salsa social in the area. Please feel free to bring a friend and get ready to have a good time. We look forward to seeing you there! $5 cover.
Every Monday night, Yoga for the Soul invites the community to practice yoga for free at Rohs Street Cafe. Their mission is to bridge communities through peace and understanding. They have mats, blocks and straps for those that need to use them, but please bring a mat if you already own one. This is a weekly recurring event that will last through April. For more information, please visit their Facebook page.
Sunday Night Cinema Presents:
'BEING THERE' (1979, PG, 130 min.)
Is it a parable about celebrity?
A political satire?
A fairy tale for the information age?
All of the above?
BEING THERE is a film that has become increasingly more relevant in recent years. In an age where the our ability to communicate has become effortless, the ways in which we receive information has shifted, almost without notice. Particularly as we enter into an election year, BEING THERE highlights and challenges the assumptions that come with our ability (and inability) to truly listen.
The film itself revolves around Chance, a slow-minded gardener, who has resided in the townhouse of his wealthy employer for his entire life and been educated about real life only through what he’s seen on television. When his benefactor dies, he is forced to vacate his home. While wandering the streets, he encounters a wealthy business mogul, who has mistaken Chance for a fellow upper-class gentleman. Soon Chance is ushered into high society, and his simple gardening philosophies are mistaken for sage wisdom, which makes him the talk of the town.
Come join us for this comical, yet fragile film that illuminates much about ourselves as it does about those we encounter.
Join us at 7:30 PM in the sanctuary space (on the other side of the big wooden doors of Rohs Street Cafe). All are welcome. For more information, check out the Facebook event page as well as the Facebook Group for Sunday Night Cinema.
Are you looking for an opportunity for volunteer hours? Want to meet some of the downtown locals in a comfortable conversational setting? Join Rohs Street Cafe and University Christian Church as we trek down to City Gospel Mission to spend time with those who lack social and financial resources. Meet us at the cafe porch this Saturday morning at 8:30 to carpool and return at noon. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

THE UC NEUROSCIENCE GRADUATE PROGRAM PRESENTS: ART AND THE BRAIN
The University of Cincinnati’s Neuroscience Graduate Program is pleased to invite you to this brain-themed art show on March 16th, 2016. The art show will be held at Rohs Street Café and will host talks by experts on current neuroscience topics.
(Indigo is a donation-based, art supply nonprofit for unwanted, gently used or unused materials.)
To build their initial inventory, Indigo Hippo will collect materials in the sanctuary connected to Rohs Street Cafe from 12-4pm. Donors will receive a tax deduction for the value of the items they donate (they’ll give you a lovely letter), the community will have access to affordable supplies, and those materials are kept out of the waste stream and given new life.
Materials are collected, sorted, and made available to the community through our storefront. Prices are kept as low as possible, making creativity more accessible to everyone by giving both traditional and non-traditional art supplies a second life. All proceeds will be used to support the new space and programming.
They are also looking for the following wish list donations : iPad, printer and/or scanner, shelves, bookcases, tables, baskets/storage bins, large easels. (All donations are tax deductible!) Check out their Facebook for more information on the event and their store.
