Chili Time in St. Bernard
Our final stop on the little mini-tour of Cincinnati style chili places was Chili Time in St. Bernard. To be honest, we don’t make it over to St. Bernard… ever. It’s just one of those little forgotten areas that despite being near UC and the highways,...

Pleasant Ridge Chili – The chili tour continues

Opening Day Cincinnati Reds 2013
Well it’s that magical day that only happens once every spring: Opening Day for the Cincinnati Reds 2013 Rain or shine, there is a special kind of beauty about today… The thought of baseball being played again makes the winter seem to be officially over,...

Sam’s Fish & Chicken aka Sam’s Chili
Let’s just be clear… the sign out front says Sam’s Chili but apparently the place is actually called Sam’s Fish & Chicken. It was also not our plan to stop in, but on our way to Price Hill Chili we saw the sign and thought, “hey, why not?” Funky from...

To suggest a spot for us to dine and drink, email In addition to our adventures throughout the Queen City, we will also periodically talk about man stuff, review beers and other man foods, and pretty much post whatever we feel like posting. So deal with it.
