    Goetta is scrapple’s less tasty cousin.

    I’ve never had a sausage ball, but to me, Goetta (or scrapple) is nothing like sausage. Completely different taste and texture.

    Next door to Arthur's is The Echo, GREAT breakfast spot.

    I might also urge you to try Montgomery Inn ribs and Pompilio's for Italian.

    Grab some fried chicken at The Eagle in OTR.

    Try the Tri-Tip from Taft Ale House, also in OTR.

    Get the Gravy Cheese Fries from Pleasant Ridge Chili, then walk across the street and down the block to Nine Giant Brewing for some drinks.

    Do the Underground OTR tour. Really cool look at the area pre & during prohibition.

    Hit up City Flea at Washington Park.

    Ride the Giant Ferris Wheel on the river at The Banks.

    I know that's closing on 12/2. Is it a permanent fixture, that will reopen next year?

    No idea, didn't realize it was closing that soon.

    Goetta is the 7 point winner in that contest.

    YES!!! The Panegeri Festival (pan-ee-yid-ee) at Holy Trinity-St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church! The company I worked for prior to moving to Louisville sponsored it because our owner was a parishioner. I actually worked the festival one year. Great time!

    I hate Goetta.

    Hope I don't get deported from Greater Cincinnati for uttering that in public.

    Another really cool Catholic mass experience is going to the German language mass at Old St. Mary's in OTR, and then going next door after mass to their Rathskeller for beers with the parishioners. That's another SERIOUSLY beautiful church in Cincinnati. They have daily Latin masses there, if that's your kinda thing.

    I've seen that before, though I haven't been in.

    I always thought that having German-language masses there was a very odd choice.
