Cincinnati skylineYour Palate Will Say THANKS:  Taste of Cincinnati May 28 - 30 2011

If you like food as more than just a means of telling your stomach to stop growling and shut up, then you're going to LOVE Taste of Cincinnati! Scheduled Memorial Day weekend, May 28 to 30.  Saturday and Sunday noon to midnight, Monday noon to 9 p.m. 

How else can you have the temptation and opportunity to sample over 40 of Cincinnati's tastiest treats?  The nation's longest running festival of it's kind, this three day Memorial weekend food fest is in edition #32! 
Located on 5th Street in downtown Cincinnati between Race and Broadway.  The event is free, but the food & drink?  That you'll need to pay for!  No item costs more than $5, and most are $3, so you can run up a sizable bill by the time you're done, but you'll have sampled more places and tastes than you could ever otherwise have hoped for!

And don't think you'll have the place to yourself!  Typical three day attendance is in the neighborhood of half a million!  And of course, it's MORE than just food.  With five different performance stages spread over the six blocks, there's something for everyone's musical taste....okay, maybe NOT everyone, but click on the link and see what's scheduled!

And the food?  If you're on a diet, sorry.  This is some of the best you can get.  Small servings of some FANTASTIC offerings.  You know they have a contest pre-event and award Best of Taste prizes?  Can you imagine a bite of these?  Prime rib cannelloni (voted Best Damn Dish), Gumbo, Jameson burger, lobster ravioli, falafel sandwich, bread pudding....get the idea that there's a little something for everyone?  Even if you spend all three days there and have an unlimited bank account, it's almost impossible to get to everything!  Your stomach will cry "no mas" long before then!  Each Taste of Cincinnnati restaurant has 3-5 different items you can select.  Click the link to see the participating restaurants and all the offerings.

The key to this event, PLAN your strategy!  The winners of the awards will be in higher demand.  Expect longer lines.  Work in some music groups you want to see.  Maybe wander around downtown, Monday night the Reds play the Brewers at 7:10 p.m.  Bring lots of ones and fives, expect crowds, dress appropriately for the weather, get your sunblock on, and have fun!

Bon appetit!

BLiz - The Taste of Cincinnati sounds like a terrific opportunity to have some great food. I have fond memories of restaurants there, although it's been many years. My brother-in-law and hiw wife likely know about this but I sure will mention it to them just in case. They would love it.

Liz & Bill, I used to enjoy going to these event in spite of the crowds.... I always enjoyed the opportunity to taste the various Restaurant's samplers and if they were really good it assured them that Diane and I would end up visiting their Restaurant. To me it was a no brain er Good Restaurant Marketing. Hope you can go and take some pictures for us:))

Anita, It's a prime opportunity to give a place a whirl for a couple of samples.  For $10 or less you can decide if you'd like to visit again and spend a lot more for full entrees and the rest of the deal :)

Anne, It's been a great place to live.  We've been here for 20 years this month, came here right after I left the Navy.  And glad our post is resonating! :)

Liz, Would imagine NYC could throw quite the bash!

Roger, It's quite a fun time as long as it's either not screamin' hot or overly crowded.  Picking the right times to visit helps with that.

Jeff, We've always been blessed with some great chef's in Cincinnati.  If you want some great cooking, you're not going to have to look too hard.

Endre, It's a terrific opportunity to give someone a trial run!

Cindy, According to the press (who MAY be biased), this is supposed to be the premier event of it's kind :)

Michelle, Problem with sampling deep dish pizza?  One slice and you're full!
