Taste of Cincinnati

Get ready to eat this weekend.

Hey everyone. Rob here.

The taste of Cincinnati is a big deal. Did you know it is the longest running culinary arts festival in the country?! It started back in 1979 and is held every Memorial day weekend. It started as a one day festival in Piatt park with about 5,000 people showing up. These days hundreds of thousands show up to sample foods from nearly 50 different restaurants.

You can also enjoy continuous entertainment from such groups as Robin Lacy & DeZydeco, Mark Ballas (from Dancing with the Stars) and my Freekbass who actually taught me how to kind of play bass.

There are 100 different dishes from which to choose. My suggestions: any dish from Arloi Dee. I always ordered take out from this restaurant when it was downtown. You also should check out the famous baked potato soup from the Courtyard Cafe. However all the food is really good so check it out. The Taste of Cincinnati this Memorial Day Weekend. Hope to see you around Fountain Square.
