Whenever someone says, "Oh you're from Cincinnati?" I quickly respond, "I'm from Northern Kentucky, NOT Cincinnati. Kentucky is much cooler." (Not everyone believes me and jokes typically ensue about how I have shoes on and my brother must be my uncle...) Regardless of which side of the state wars you align yourself with, it's hard not to enjoy places like Rhinegeist Brewery, which have started (at least since my last visit home) popping up.
I'm starting to warm up to Cincinnati more than I ever did when I lived across the river. As Andrew and I shared a flight and watched games of cornhole (or bags, if you prefer) I felt like I was almost back in Brooklyn - except there was a lot more space, we had a car parked a few blocks away, and then a girl I ran track with in high-school walked in the door. It was the best of both worlds (where I'm from and where I am now) and just might make the list of "Places we could move when we're finally exhausted paying rent in Brooklyn." (which isn't happening anytime soon... but it's still fun to think about!)
