NEW INFO - Cincinnati Style Chili & Coney Crawl - APRIL 12, 2014 Sat, 08/24/13 10:58 PM (permalink)
It has been 4 years since the last Cincinnati Style Chili and Coney Crawl and it is time to do it again.
 
What do you all think about October 5, 12 or 26??
 
We can also hit the New Jungle Jims for a break between chili stops among other things.
 
Just remembered the Memphis tour is oct 18-19.
 
It doesnt have to be October, just throwing out an idea.

    The 5th or the 26th would work for me. The 12th is a holiday weekend so me and the better half will most likely be travelling out of state.

        OK
         
        After looking at the calendar and getting a PM, October 26, is also not a good day so do we hold it off until the spring?  My November is not good, and December is holiday season so.....
         
        What do you all think?

            Think "Palate Cleanser" between courses.
             
            I'd love to do this. I'm available the 26th; the 5th / 12th, I may have to be in NYC for our branch office's move.
             
            I'm pretty booked in November.
             
            What about January as an alternate?

              I'd eliminate Eastside from your list - they are very new and their chili is very pedestrian, and they are much further out than the rest, adding a lot to your travel time

                Agreed, although I do stop up for 99 cent conies on Tuesdays on occasion. It's not bad, just not as good as the others. Although I do like their sandwiches.

                  I drove past there a week or so ago; it appears that the name of the joint is now Eastside Café, not Chili.

                    Chili Fans -
                     
                    After further review of the schedules, I am now think this tour should be moved back to the spring!  I would love to do it this fall but with other tours already scheduled and my availability dwindling, I have come to the conclusion that SPRING '14 would be better.

                              I think Pie Diva & I have enough planning time to join the tour.

                                I'd enjoy it (although the prospect of finally meeting TJ is a bit off-putting). Of course lleechef would have to be dragged kicking and screaming. She's not exactly a fan of the stuff. She groans whenever I try to get her to Skyline here.

                                  Don't hold your breath Michael- No one has ever met TJ- I'm convinced he's just a figment of our imagination..
                                   
                                  Would love to make this tour- unfortunately with 2014 already booked up (glee club, cousin's wedding and train trip to DC  along with much needed new bedroom windows, closet doors and vertical blinds at home)  time and money is going to prevent that from happening  ...

                                    I was recently told the City Council has to give larger tax incentives to lure companies here once those companies find out I live here
                                     
                                    So.......maybe you could pretend you are the CEO of a good-sized business looking for a new HQ?  you'd probably not pay for your chili all day long

                                          No one has ever met TJ

                                          There are four (3 locals, one Chicagoan) who have met me, but naturally, they are reluctant to admit it, and honestly now -- who could blame them?
                                           
                                          .....and I once spoke to the legendary Cheesewit (whose posts got me started here) on the phone

                                            Haven't chimed in here yet, but it goes without saying that I will be attending.  And with some advanced warning, maybe cousin Johnny could join us.  As far as I know, he has only been to Camp Washington.
                                             
                                            And I would love meet TJ!

                                              OK, I'll go without any kicking and screaming since bb will be there which means real food like PIE will be in the itinerary.

                                                Great, another person to share with!  Lleechef, we will make sure you have the opportunity to eat other food besides chili.  How do you feel about goetta, cheese coneys and double decker sandwiches?

                                                      But, you've always insisted you like Greek food. And that so-called Cincinnati chili isn't, of course, chili, it's Greek meat sauce. Granted, I'm made that argument to you for some time without it changing your mind, but I'm always hopeful.

                                                            Hey, TJ. When we were coming back from Pennsylvania recently on I-70 we almost stopped at your sports bar outside Wheeling.
