Touring around Cincinnati


After the conference today, I decided to get out of the hotel and go see some of the city. Luckily, Cincinnati and Covington have a really nice hybrid-electric public bus service. For $1.50 each way, you can pretty much go from one end of town to the other. The bus takes you from Covington, over the Ohio River, through Cincinnati proper, and then back down into Kentucky into Newport. That's a pretty good bargain.

So I hopped the bus, and saw the city.




And as luck would have it, the bus just happened to drop me off at the Hofbräuhaus! Wie viel Glück! The Hofbräuhaus in Newport is only one of three officially licensed restaurants from the Hofbräuhaus in München, producing the exact recipes of beer that match the production in Germany, including the reinheitsgebot rules of beer purity.

So, finding myself at the Hofbräuhaus, I felt compelled to order a full liter of dunkel Bier, Kassler Rippchen, red cabbage, and Brotchen. I mean, when in München...

I loved your movie of Cincinnati. I had forgotten how nice the downtown was. I always preferred the Newport area. I'm sure you enjoued your visit to the Hofbrau house. I didn't realize they had one in Cincinnati.
