Must-ride coaster at Kings Island?
The Beast! Especially when it gets dark outside.

Best spot for pre- or post-Reds game drink?
Moerlein Lager House.

How do you order your Cincinnati-style chili?
Chili and spaghetti (otherwise known as a 2-way) with beans, I actually don’t like cheese.

Favorite ArtWorks mural?
The Cincinnati Strong Man: Henry Holtgrewe.

Rainy day activity you’d recommend to a visitor?
Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal and Jungle Jim’s International Market.

Weirdest dish you ever tasted…and loved!
Okonomiyaki at Quan Hapa. It’s a Japanese pancake topped with veggies and some sort of meat.

Favorite hidden gem (that you’re willing to tell everyone about!)...
Plaid Room Records in Loveland is so cool! The guys who work there are really nice and they have a great selection of albums to choose from!

Can’t-miss annual event that you always attend?
Taste of Cincinnati, it’s all of the best food in the city and it’s always the perfect temperature outside.

Best view of the Ohio River...
The observation deck at Carew Tower gives you great views in all directions!

Most memorable concert you ever attended?
Saint Motel on Fountain Square during the summer of 2015. It was part of the Mid-Point Indie Summer series, so it was free!
