Can we get a mod in here to clear up a few of these MapleLady threads? This is ridiculous!

MapleLady, I'm assuming you're either trying to write a book about Cincinnati or have some type of obsessive-compulsive disorder or aspergers. Either way, I would request that you use one thread to ask all of your questions.

Additionally, if you are writing a book, I would suggest you just visit or move to Cincinnati short-term and you can see everything you want and have access to all the archives at the Library and Museum.

Lord...she is not hurting anyone. Why do you feel the need to insult her?

You should be happy someone from far away recognizes there is value in the city.

Yes, but there is also the tendency to overrun the forum, which I do believe is happening.

I apologize about my post... it was definitely a little over the top. I just felt like it was a little over-the-top. I didn't mean what I said as an insult, but just seemed like the most likely reasons to have such a specific curiosity about a city you've never visited. Best of luck and I do apologize.

That's the story, but the owner of Camp Washington Chili, who is also 1st generation Greek, told me there is no Greek equivalant of Cincinnati style chili in Greece. Cincy style chili came from Empress Chili, here in Cincinnati. And of course they were Greek. So perhaps they used spices familiar to them in Greek meat dishes, or took inspiration from other Greek dishes.

Camp Washington's owner also owns empress Chili and has been making Cincinnati style chili for 62 years.

Pringles chips were named for the street the P&G employee who created them lived on. Pringles Lane is in Finneytown.
