Airplaning It to North Carolina: Chili in Cincy

It was a small plane with two rows of seats on either side of the aisle,  Unfortunately, I wasn't lucky enough to get an empty seat beside me.

There were LOTS of Packer fans, judging from hats, sweatshirts and coats.  Imagine that, Green Bay fans in Wisconsin!!  We were going to Cincinnati, so they weren't on their way to Detroit for the Turkey Day football game against the Lions.

Landing in Cincinnati, I had thirty minutes to get to the next gate for the next plane.  After a bathroom break, I walked around to see what places they had in the gate area.  I was kind of hoping they would have a place serving that great Cincy chili...and, THEY DID.

There was a Gold Star Chili place.  I wasn't hungry at all after those sliders before getting to the Milwaukee airport, but I'm not going to pass up a chance to have some of that great stuff.  I got a regular three-way and went back to the gate and ate some.Love That Cincinnati Chili.  --RoadDog

That's about the best use of thirty minutes at CVG I've ever heard of.

I let my mom have some of the chili the next day. She said, "Why, that's just spaghetti."

Yup, but that's some great 'ghetti. She liked it even though she makes about the best spaghetti I ever ate.

All airports should have at least one place offering a local food. That way, layovers wouldm't be so bad.
