    Hey guys. Cardinal fan with a few questions.

    Iím an STL die hard but respect the Reds and their history. Im also a 90ís kid so Griffey Jr is in my blood. Maybe thatíll count for something

    Also a Huge UK fan so Iím sure thereís a few of you Cats roaming around as well.

    I was given diamond club seats for the cardinals series and will be making my first trip to Cincinnati. Iím originally from the Memphis area.

    I will be traveling with my 5 year old and wife and was wondering about entertainment and restaurants. Any advice you guys might have for me would be greatly appreciated.

    I have little to offer but enjoy the wonderful seats and hope you and your family enjoy yourselves...outside of game outcomes of course.

    Jeff Ruby's Precinct and The Montgomery Inn are both excellent places to eat.

    Have fun, hopefully you thoroughly enjoy yourselves while watching the Cardinals lose each night.

    Did you read the bit about him being from Memphis?
    Note to OP: Don't bother with Montgomery Inn. You won't be impressed.

    Depending on how long you’re in town, the museum center at Union Terminal might be cool. They have a huge place for kids to play. Your kid would probably enjoy it.

    The Precinct is a steak house, and is pretty pricy. I just checked their menu, and the cheapest steak is fifty two bucks!

    If you have a five-year-old, and you're in town for three days, you might want to think about Kings Island, an amusement park about 25 miles northeast of the city on I-71.

    Agree. Our old itinerary was always a night game, a day game the next day and King's Island. Fact is my 30's son wants to do it in September again. No kids yet, but I told him he do it after his first is born. Dad's not able to ride those coasters anymore (probably able, but not willing).

    As usual, a little late. Story of my life.

    There is a pretty nice aquarium just across the river at Newport on the Levee.

    Good suggestion with a 5 year old. I would also recommend eating (and maybe playing games) at Newport before the games and walking across the river to GABP. When my kids were that age, this was a treat (and I still enjoy it, too).
