Riverfest 2005


Boom

Been busy this past weekend acting as tour guide of the city, which always reveals some new angle I haven’t seen. The big to-do at the end of the weekend was watching fireworks from afar. Cincinnati’s big hair rock station has been behind this show for years. Reports say it draws up to 500,000 folks.

I went down to the riverfront once. Once. Where the immersion is spectacular, but the lines to the port-o-lets and beer push my buttons in ways I cannot articulate.

So now I take advantage of any offer to catch the display from a safe distance.

I made Cincinnati style chili dip (chili, cream cheese, shredded cheddar) for the first time and there are no reports of any illness, so I suppose it worked out okay.

The weather was fantastic. Just grand.
