Sing the Queen City

Cincinnati is a unique city – one of the smaller Midwest cities with a population of just over 300,000 people. But it boasts two great sports teams with stadiums along the Ohio River just a mile from each other.

The Bengals and Reds were my only connection to this midwestern city. That and one of my favorite sit coms growing up – Dr Johnny Fever and WKRP.

This week, buildings in Cincinnati were illuminated in blue to show support of health care workers during this pandemic.

This is the site of the 150 foot observation wheel that is coming soon.

Gov DeWine has done a hecka of a job fighting COVID. Ohio was the first state to shut down restaurants in March and one of the last to open up. Unlike his Republican counterpart in Florida who failed to fully shut down the beaches before they were overrun with Spring Breakers.

I used to hang out at a Cincinnati Bengals bar in downtown DC, and I just loved the Cincy chilli topped on spaghetti. So I was looking for a Skyline in town.

There were many, but for some unknown reason I stopped at Millie’s for some Cincy fried Chicken.

The place was small and homey and everyone there were regulars who called the chef Grandma Millie.

The portions were perfect – juicy, not greasy. My sides of blackeye beans and glazed carrots brought a taste of south to the Midwest.
