Cincinnati, Ohio

Skyline Chili: a three-way, and a cheese coney. Sublime. Last night, J.D. Vance took a group of us out to eat at Orchids At Palm Court [1]. We had the tasting menu, with wine pairings, and it was really terrific. But I honestly can’t decide which of these two great meals I enjoyed more.

UPDATE: J.D. (pictured left) took me and his friend Sam Rudman, who flew in from Boston for the baptism and confirmation, to Graeter’s on the way to the airport. It’s a Cincinnati institution, I’m told. Such delicious ice cream! I only wish Johnny Bench could have been there to serve me my scoop. When I was a kid in the mid-70s, the Reds were my favorite team. As far as I’m concerned, Joe Morgan is always playing second base (my position on my peewee baseball team).
