About Taste of Cincinnati
Taste of Cincinnati is held every Memorial Day weekend in downtown Cincinnati by the Corporate and Community Events division of the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber. Started in 1979, it is now the nation’s longest running culinary arts festival.

Taste of Cincinnati started as a one-day fest in Piatt Park, then known as Garfield Park, with approximately 5,000 attending the first event. The event expanded to two days in 1981, and in 1988 expanded to three days and moved to Central Parkway. Taste of Cincinnati was the brainchild of Karen Maier, vice president of marketing for Frisch’s Restaurants Inc. Maier cooked up the idea after reading about Taste of the Big Apple in the Nation’s Restaurant News, an industry trade publication.

In 2007, the event was moved to Fifth Street to spotlight the $42-million renovation of Fountain Square and its underground parking garage, and to bring the event closer to Downtown’s cluster of hotels, such as The Cincinnatian Hotel, the Garfield Suites Hotel, the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza, the Hyatt Regency Cincinnati, the Millennium Hotel Cincinnati, The Terrace Hotel and the Westin Hotel Cincinnati.

Approximately 500,000 now attend the annual food extravaganza, making Taste one of the nation’s largest street festivals. Taste of Cincinnati was named Food Event of the Year for 1997 by Events Business News, the recognized authority of the special events business in the United States, selecting it out of 40,000 special events across the nation.

Taste of Cincinnati features more than 40 fine restaurants serving up delicious and delectable menu items. In the weeks leading up to Taste each year, menu items are previewed and judged for prestigious Best of Taste Awards.

Taste of Cincinnati is also a music festival, with continuous live entertainment featuring local and national recording stars performing on multiple stages throughout the event.

Started off the morning with a Poached egg on a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. We had the wooden deck repainted today. We have a huge deck so it will take another day to finish it up. It’s looking good though! After Breakfast I went up to the local Kroger for a couple of items and back home. A little warmer out there today, 69 degrees and mostly sunny. Not much going on today, all caught up on all the cleaning. Went on over to see Dad for a bit and back home. Not feeling up to par, upset stomach. So no Dinner post tonight. See everyone tomorrow!!

My Blog’s Birthday – 7 Years

Thank you to all of you that visit my blog! This month is my blog’s 7 year anniversary! It started out that this was just something to do to fill up a lot of idle hours. I lost my left leg to Melanoma Cancer back in 2001. I continued to have to battle Melanoma until 2004 when at that time I was told I was Cancer Free! I beat some tough odds through some fine Doctors out of Pittsburgh (UPMC), a very fine Doctor here in neighboring Fairfield Ohio (That I’m sad to say lost his battle with cancer 2 years ago), and through the grace of God above!

 

 

 

So my life had really changed after all that and there was a time I was fighting boredom and depression. That’s when, while I was online, I seen that a cousin of mine had started an online blog. So I gave it try in 2010 and now its 2017, 7 years later and my blog keeps growing thanks to all of you! Now I look forward to looking and sharing new recipes, food news, and everyday life for me. I’m in a wheelchair,thus the name of my blog My Meals are on Wheels. At the time I’m writing this I now have 2,931 Followers, followers from around the World! That’s just so amazing to me. 2,931 new friends I would have had without my blog! So thank you again for all of you that follow my blog or for those that just drop by to read. Thanks, Mark (Ohio Cook)

Saturday morning kicks off with the Bockfest 5K, then you can sample Bocks, Bites, & Bygone Days with local and rare bock beer tappings, the Bockfeast dinners, a toast to WNKU, and unique heritage series and historic brewery tours. Saturday night kicks back into high gear with the Billygoat Ball with live music, more cold bock beer, and the Beard Baron and Sausage Queen competitions!

About Bockfest
Bockfest is first and foremost, a community event. In addition to throwing a great, three day long party, our goal is to celebrate and support our local community. We work to grow Bockfest every year, to increase attendance, to grow the parade, to add events, and to raise more money to spread the word. However, as enthusiastic as we are about growing the festival and sharing it with an increasingly wider range of America, we are unwavering in our commitment to keep Bockfest unique, authentic and local. There is no charge to the public to attend Bockfest and we work to include all types of local businesses because our goal is to promote Over-the-Rhine, its rich heritage, and the people who live and work here to as broad of an audience as we can reach.

Starts tonight on Food Network.FOOD TRUCK RACE

 

The Great Food Truck Race – Premieres Sunday, Aug. 28 9|8c

Let’s Get Rolling! – Seven food truck teams embark on a food truck race that could earn them a life-altering prize of $50,000. In the premiere, the teams meet Tyler in Los Angeles, the center of the food truck revolution, and the race begins with the teams’ first Truck Stop challenge, a game-changing twist posed in each episode: Instead of starting in Los Angeles, the race commences in San Diego. To even the playing field, the teams begin with empty trucks and an equal amount of seed money. They have three days to prepare, promote and sell their food by any means necessary. After a weekend of triumphs, teamwork, and tests of character, the totals are tallied and the trucks find out who continues the great race and who goes home.
