Growing up in the South, I learned two things: Pepsi is the work of the devil and NEVER go to Ohio. Well, a business trip caused me to break one of those rules (with the exception of the occasional but delicious Dr. Pepper) and (much to my chagrin) it didn’t suck nearly as much as I anticipated.
My top 4 reasons Cincinnati Doesn’t Suck (because 5 is a stretch):Can you say f-ing “sky walk”?!You mean I can walk from my hotel/apartment to my office, a restaurant or a mall – all without having to see the sky?

I ask if it is depressing because it is so under-used. I’ll elaborate: Delta once operated a huge [...]
Not knowing where to eat for a one-night trip to Columbus, I defaulted to the trusty Urbanspoon to find that the city’s German Village neighbor there is a–you guessed it–German restaurant. But this isn’t just any old German restaurant. It’s practically an institution in Columbus–only confirmed by its popularity and great rating on Urbanspoon.
If it helps to understand how long this place has been around and how rooted in tradition they are, take this sign touting their “first new item in 25 years!” If you have been in business and continue to be in business for 25 years without changing anything, then you must be [...]
