#72198 Kenner® and the Building of an Empire

Posted by SSR1966 on 17 August 2017 - 05:13 AM

The Kenner Toys display at the Cincinnati Museum Center. A small bonus to the the Star Wars and the Power of Costume exhibit.

Yes, you can still catch an Amtrak train at the Terminal, although currently the station is on the North side of the Terminal at the end of Kenner Street (which dead ends into the train junction). I'm not sure if this is and has been a permanent situation or if the station is just located there during the remodeling.

The last time I was at the Museum Center before this was for the "A Day in Pompeii" exhibit back in 2012. As far as what they are doing to the museum, apparently they are upgrading electric, plumbing and roofing, as well as completely restoring the building to its original glory. I do not think, however, that they are planing on rebuilding the sections of the museum that were demolished before the building was saved... but I'm not entirely sure.

#72178 The Garden Of Hope in Covington, Kentucky

Posted by SSR1966 on 08 August 2017 - 02:10 AM

I found it on http://www.roadsideamerica.com/, the website guide to unusual attractions, tourist traps, weird vacations, and road trips. I had never heard of it either until about two years ago.




#72174 The Garden Of Hope in Covington, Kentucky

The Garden of Hope is a replica of Jesus’ tomb located in Covington, Kentucky. It officially opened to the public on Palm Sunday in 1958. It was the inspiration of Reverend Morris H. Coers after his visit to the Holy Land in 1938. He may not have been able to take everyone to Jerusalem, but he could bring Jerusalem to America.

 




#72162 Original Goettafest, Mainstrasse Village in Covington 2017

Posted by SSR1966 on 29 July 2017 - 02:51 AM

I had a glazed doughnut burger at the Ohio State Fair a few years back and loved it. Goetta glazed doughnut sandwich... not so much.

I tried Goetta for the first time this year and wasn't impressed. I will try it one more time, in a different form, to make sure that it wasn't just this specific sandwich that I didn't like before I completely write it off. I really loved the cream puffs though.

 




#72154 Aquarium Restaurant in Nashville, Tennessee

Posted by SSR1966 on 25 July 2017 - 02:11 AM

Yes, it's mostly sea food that I can remember. I kept thinking of the 2 fish in the "Monty Python's Meaning Of Life." They were in a tank at a restaurant watching a fello fish get eaten and one was saying, "Poor Harry. Makes you kind of wonder what it's all about. The meaning of life, I mean." I think I had a burger with mashed potatoes, myself. I don't really care for sea food except for Long John Silvers, and that's the most unhealthy fast food there is so I rarely have it these days.

#72110 Broadway in Nashville, Tennessee

Posted by SSR1966 on 12 July 2017 - 02:22 AM

I went to the Aquarium Restaurant which was in a mall where the Grand Ole Opry used to be.  It was very clean and lots of trees. The area I shot this video was Broadway where all the Honky-Tonks and clubs are located. It's about 5 blocks long in the downtown area. I did eat at Jack's Bar-B-Que on Broadway. It was quite tasty. You can see the sign for the restaurant in the video above. The Broadway district hasn't changed very much over the past several decades and the whole street is on the Historic Register.

My first of 3 videos that I made during my 4 days in Nashville this past week.

 




#72084 Camp Dennison Memorial Triangle

Posted by SSR1966 on 27 June 2017 - 04:29 AM

Just East of Cincinnati in Camp Dennison, where a union fort was located that was for recruiting soldiers, training and medical. This is just one small park out of a few different things to do and see, including a Civil War museum and eating at the Historic Schoolhouse Restaurant.
