    Re: Goldstar or Skyline?

    I like Skyline. Alas there isn't one any where close to where I live, so I have a friend send me some packaged chili mix from Kroger each season. It isn't the same but it's better than nothing on opening day.

    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    Is that bar still located across the street next to the supermarket? I think it was called the "Firehouse Bar" - it was right there on Ludlow....

    Yep - Arlin's is still there. A Cincy fire station sits right next to it.

    I've never been there though. So I don't know how good of a place it is.

    Re: Goldstar or Skyline?

    I've have Gold Star a few times recently and even though it's grown on me some more, I still think Skyline is better. I have not had Gold Star at an actual store though, just in the can. Not sure if there is a significant difference or not though.

    We went to a game about two weeks ago, and on the way down we stopped at Camp Washington Chilli. It was pretty good, the noodles were overcooked though. Which is a huge pet peeve of mine anytime I get any kind of pasta.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    The school I work at it right across from an Empress Chili. I go there at least once a week now. Much, much better than the big two.

    My stomach can't handle Skyline anymore. If I feel like a trek, my favorites are Camp and Price Hill Chili. Pleasant Ridge Chili isn't bad either (although I should throw out the caveat that I typically eat PRC late at night after several adult beverages).

    I was fortunate enough to get a few cans recently in the mail and have enjoyed some skyline in NYC. Had it while watching the Reds game and it was the best!

    For the mercifully unacquainted, "Cincinnati chili," the worst regional foodstuff in America or anywhere else, is a horrifying diarrhea sludge (most commonly encountered in the guise of the "Skyline" brand) that Ohioans slop across plain spaghetti noodles and hot dogs as a way to make the rest of us feel grateful that our own ****-eating is (mostly) figurative. The only thing "chili" about it is the shiver that goes down your spine when you watch Ohio sports fans shoveling it into their maws on television and are forced to reckon with the cold reality that, for as desperately as you might cling to faltering notions of community and universality, ultimately your fellow human beings are as foreign and unknowable to you as the surface of Pluto, and you are alone and always have been and will die alone, a world unto yourself unmarked and unmapped and totally, hopelessly isolated.

    What he describes, describes all chili. If you don't like Skyline, you don't like chili. But that paragraph was kinda funny.

    I love Burneko's writing, but he and the Deadspin staff repeatedly rip on Cincy chili--this is nothing new...

    I liked this one:

    Mmmmmmm, pie. Oh man. Nobody tell any Oregonians how high their state food is ranked, though. They can't fit any more self-congratulation into their busy schedules.
