    You are on crack.
    I will smash your face into a car windshield and then take your mother, Dorothy Mantooth, out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.

    Skyline Chili is... an acquired taste.

    I grew up in Illinois, moved to Cincinnati in HS. At first, I agreed with gripsnhips... but, over time, I've come to love it. Not as a replacement for Texas-style chili or the canned-red-beans-with-hamburger stuff I grew up with, but as something of its own.

    For those who don't know, Skyline is one brand of Cincinnati-style chili which is a Greek recipe. It has a thin consistency, with finely ground beef in a reddish-brown sauce that has, among other things, cumin and chocolate. (Yes, chocolate.) It can be served as is, or with beans, or over spaghetti noodles, topped with cheese and/or onions. In a chili parlor you order a __-Way, depending on how many items: Chili with beans, over spaghetti, topped with cheese and onions, is a four-way. (You can also order cheese coneys -- chili over a hot dog in a bun, topped with cheese, and, at your option, onions)

    Cincinnati is more than just Greek-style chili. We have two great small-scale ice cream makers (Aglameisi's and Graeter's), and tons of great restaurants. Just don't ask about goeta. ;-)

    Graeter's has very good ice cream. I'm drooling just thinking about it.

    I had Skyline just Saturday night for dinner while in Indy.

    Cincinnati has some great restaurants, but the frickin city is a clusterfook to get around. I'm just glad I never stayed there for more than a couple days.

    I think it's the name "chili" that is the nisnomer here. While I agree with ideamark that it's an aquired taste, it certainly should never really be called chili. It's coney dog sauce. I do like a 5 way from time to time for sure. And the dogs with sauce, onions and cheese are pretty darn good. I just wouldn't recommend eating it by itself like real chili i.e. texas style.

    I think I'm starting to get it. Probably a little more acceptable if its not thought of as chili. Just skyline.

    Went to the Reds Astros last night. Saw griffey hit a dinger.

    Point cincy.
