Well this place looks familiar. We’re back with another Cincinnati postcard sent from Canada! FYI that Cincinnati chili I had the other day was just… muah muah it was so darn good. I don’t mean to toot my own horn since I cooked it but I’m more so complimenting the recipe I used! Anyway, since I talked a lot about the city in general in my previous post, let’s look at some random fun facts! I talked about Cincinnati being the capital of chili… it is also the capital of cornhole! For those not familiar with this: cornhole is a lawn game where players have to toss a bean bag into a hole carved into an inclined wooden board. There are boards on both sides of the “field”, and two players (of opposite teams) on each side. I could go on about the rules and stuff since I really like this game, but I need room for another fun fact. It’s believed that cornhole was born on the west side of Cincinnati, although some aren’t so sure about that. Regardless, cornhole is popular enough here to have major tournaments and associations for it come about. Another cool fact, which I researched more about upon a comment left on my other post: Cincinnati is home to one of America’s oldest zoos! It dates to 1873, making it nearly 150 years old! (Even the tortoise exhibit must be on its second generation at least!) The zoo has an interesting history – it started when the area was infested with caterpillars, consuming all the vegetation. So, a thousand birds from Europe were bought and brought over to eat them! The birds were temporarily housed nearby, and it spawned the idea to start a zoo. I did think it was funny though that the zoo does have a Butterfly Garden… so I guess there were some survivors! Thank you heaps for another postcard, I’m almost a Cincinnati expert now!
