Memorial Day

Memorial Day weekend is pretty much synonymous with food for me. Usually that food falls into the BBQ category, but occasionally is more expansive. This is also the weekend that Cincinnati hosts their annual Taste of Cincinnati.
I haven’t attended Taste in several years. I remember the various food choices being slightly overpriced, but enjoyable. I have a hard time with the desserts. In fact, this year I plan on eating only sides and desserts. For me, every meal is just something I have to get through before I hit the dessert. Taste gives me the option to just go straight for as many desserts as possible.
Is there wine? Doubtful. Is there beer? I’m betting Bud Light unless one of the microbreweries got in on the deal. The music is usually good and the atmosphere is festive. It doesn’t compare with Taste of Chicago, but it’s all I got.
Have a great Memorial Day weekend, and try not to get sunburnt!

    I went to the Taste of Cincy a few years ago with my husband (who wasn’t my husband then). He’s originally from the general Southwest Ohio area and had remembered going as a kid. We had a great time. Enjoy!
