Chris - I used to live in Cincinnati and visit my family there once or
twice a year. Unfortunately, there aren't as many brewpubs in Cincinnati
as it's strongl Germanic heritage might promise. Most of the local
breweries have consolidated (Hudepohl/Shoenling/Burger) or have been bought
up by larger brewers (Wiedemann). Oldenburg is the only "pub" I'm aware
of. It's not just a brewpub, though. It's more like a combination of a
beer museum, a restaurant, a brewpub, and a enormous beer hall. The brew's
pretty good, but it's only half the show. I don't know ho many gazillions
of cans they have on display, but they have paraphernalia (sp?) going back
to the 1870's. It's in Ft Mitchell, Ky, on I-75 at the Buttermilk Pike
exit. Very handy for those flying in and out, 'cause it's on the way to
the airport. Allow yourself an hour or two to look around, if you go. I'm
not a real antique or kitsch buff, but I found this interesting.

There's a local brew called Christian Moerlien that's worth trying.

Chili - don't get me started. I miss an all night chili parlor more than
anything. There's really nothing better for the late night snackies than
a four-way bear and a couple of cheese coneys. Ahhh, memories. There's
two big chains in Cincinnati - Skyline (the original Cincy chili) and Gold
Star (also good). Go to both and compare.

Hangouts - the City View Inn on Oregon St. in Mt. Adams has a small back
deck (two tables from K-mart) that offers a great view of the eastern side
of downtown and sunsets. Arnold's has a lot of atmosphere, too.
