      Help for a weekend - central without car, taxi ok

      by nomad7890 Online Now May 10, 2010 at 11:46 AM

      I am meeting a friend in Cincinnati and need to plan a few activites but without a car. Objective is to have some place to chat, while doing a little sight seeing. Would also enjoy attending mass at the St. Peter in Chains Cathedral ... so - please keep in mind distance- taxi ok, public transp. ok too.

      - what is a good place to stay (I saw the Marriott, is this in an OK neighborhood?) - or a similar place

      - What is a good breakfast/brunch place? I think a big lunch would be good.

      - Looked at Eden park for a stroll - are there nice quiet places but not too secluded places to sit there?

      - What about Carew Tower?

      - How far is the ball park from there - and is it open daily for tours?

      - How far is the Union Terminal from there - I just want to see the building.

      - What would be a nice but inexpensive place for dinner? American food, steak OK - nice, not stuffy, and most of all, fairly quiet - need to be able to have a good conversation.

      - What would you recommend after dinner?

      ok, too many questions. Don't want to make it too busy, mainly have a little activity, lots of opportunity to sit down and chat with as little heat and as much peace and quiet as possible, and a nice inexpensive meal at the end.

There was substancial fog that day and it made it look as if the pigs were flying through the city. My Aunt said it was a nice story, but probably untrue and I cannot find anything on line to corroborate what I've heard.

Also, I just need a table for my homework and possibly a refrigerator for some munchies.

      My son needs to go to the US for a short trip to the East and West coast. The travel agency made him a offer which sounds good, but:
      The last leg of his trip will be from San Francisco to Cincinnati, then to Frankfurt. Both flights are with Delta, but there are just 35 minutes between landing and take off again. I don't know Cincinnati Airport, but to me that seems to be impossible. He can check his bags through, but usually the gates close 30 minutes before take off. Do you think there's a reliable chance for him top catch his flight? He has to decide by tomorrow if he books the flights.

      CoAir13 (Jen and Ethan) will be visiting with us for a couple of days the first week in August, so we are inviting other Cincinnati/Dayton area VTers to meet us for dinner on Thursday evening, August 4, 6:00 p.m. at El Rancho Grande in Sharonville. It's easy to find, at 11765 Lebanon Road, just south of the Sharonville exit off i-275, between I-75 and I-71. You can sign up at the posting I have made in the VT meetings section. I know it's a week night, but many of you should still be able to make it. Let's get together, meet, and welcome Jen and Ethan to our corner of Ohio. The more the merrier.
