    I've gotta say, I'm really crushing this list, you guys. At this rate, I'll be a chili-chomping, goetta-frying, Mike-Brown-cursing Cincinnati resident in no time.
    You probably aren't very far from Bad Tom Smith Brewery then either. That's on the lower tier for me.

    Make sure that you get to Listermann Brewery, which is right next to Xavier. It's found it's way into my top spot in Greater Cincy.

    This made me laugh because itís true! No one in Cincinnati cares where you went to college because the connections all come together by figuring out where you went to high school and who you know! The opening day parade is a must see.

    Finkeís Goetta is the ONLY Goetta worth trying! Go see Billy at the Market and tell him youíve never tried it and he will give you samples for free.

    Go see a Cincinnati Ballet performance at Music Hall

    Pray the steps on Good Friday.

    Visit the museum center to see the historic murals

    We are lucky to have many beautiful locations in our city to add to a bucket list.

    The food at 50 West is great, beers solid. I like to visit Streetside during the Summer. Woodside knocks it out of the park with some of their dark brews.

    Check out Arnold's Bar & Grill on 8th Street in Cincinnati sometime. Cincinnati's oldest continuously-operating bar...open since 1861. Good food there too. Points if you catch a music show out in the courtyard - especially the Cincinnati Dancing Pigs.

    Arnold's is one of the anchor locations of the Cincinnati Bockfest, which is a pretty righteous reason to go out and drink some German-style beer in the heart of a city that rose up around German beer brewing. Bockfest is a 3-day beer festival that's been going on since 1993, and involves 20+ venues, plus "Bockfest Hall" at the Christian Moerlein Malt House in Over The Rhine. The whole thing starts off with a parade through the middle of Over The Rhine on Friday afternoon. No admission to any of the bars, and they have a continuously running shuttle service for free between all of the venues. All bars offer at least one of the various bock beer releases from local area breweries, and Arnold's usually has at least 15 bock and dopplebock offerings over the course of the 3 days and 2 nights.

    Here's the complete list of Bockfest offerings that could be found on tap among the Bockfest 26 venues last year:

    13 Below (Cincinnati, OH) - Fluss Bock 4.9% Bock
    16 Lots (Mason, OH) - Bayern Kurve 7.0% Urbock
    Braxton (Covington, KY) - Ignitor 7.2% Maibock

    Christian Moerlein (Cincinnati, OH) - Emancipator 7.5% Dopplebock
    Christian Moerlein (Cincinnati, OH) - Fourteen/165 7.5% Maibock
    DogBerry (West Chester, OH) - Freiheit 5.3% Urbock
    Fifty West (Cincinnati, OH) - Road Bock 6.1% Maibock
    Fretboard (Blue Ash, OH) - Reverberator 8.0% Dopplebock
    Hofbrauhaus (Newport, KY) - Doppelbock 8.0%
    Hofbrauhaus (Newport, KY) - Maibock 7.2%
    Hudepohl-Schoenling (Cincinnati, OH) – Hudepohl Festival Bock 6.5% Bock
    Hudepohl-Schoenling (Cincinnati, OH) - Schoenling Bock varies year to year is made according to the recipe of the winner of the previous year's Bockfest homebrew competition, and likewise, the winner of this years competition will be next years.
    Listermann (Cicninnati, OH) - Friar Bacon 7.0% Bacon Smoked Dopplebock
    MadTree (Cincinnati, OH) - Bockaveli 6.2% Bock

    Funny how beer or bourbon can dominate a "bucket list" thread!

    @Getslow, if you like watching Premium League soccer in a pub environment, check out Rhinehaus OTR when your favorite team plays. It is usually packed when either Liverpool or Arsenal play.
