Allow me to get the bad out of the way, first. Our hotel, The Millenium, was so outdated and dirty, I plan to write an extensive review on Trip Advisor soon. At $200 dollars a night, I expected at least a clean set of sheets, working remote and heater.
Other than that, I must say that myself and best friend Chris had an exceptional time in both Kentucky and Ohio. We went to the Horrorhound Convention for two days and had a blast meeting cast members of AMC’S hit drama, The Walking Dead. Besides the fact that the convention was utterly chaotic and unorganized, the knowledge I gathered at New York Comic Con last October helped when we had to figure out which lines to wait in and how early. The people working the event had no idea (reviews on their Facebook page prove I am not the only one who feels this way).
The first day we toured Downtown Cincinnati; we walked past the Reds’ and Bengals’ stadiums, and ate a delicious lunch at Moerlein’s Lager House which overlooked the Ohio River over to Kentucky. I had a yummy sausage and kraut sandwich with an OTR Pale Ale, my friend a barbecue chicken sandwich and Goose Island home brew.
Our one night out was spent at Mynt Martini in Fountain Square. Very friendly staff and bartenders, good music and strong cocktails!
Here are some photos I snapped during my stay.
