Kings of ’Cue

Who’s got the best barbecue in the city? Turns out we do. It’s official (there was a contest and everything—hosted by another well-known mag). With 32 competitors citywide and five nail-biting bracket rounds, our very own Beerded Pig and Pickles & Bones Barbecue came head-to-head for the final showdown in Cincy’s first-ever BBQ Battle. When the smoke cleared, Pickles & Bones was crowned the winner, with the Beerded Pig claiming runner-up. Two barbecue giants close to home—aren’t we lucky we don’t have to travel for the best in town? PicklesAndBones.com

Thank You for Your Service

On Sunday, Nov. 17, Cedar Village Senior Living Community will host the Flightless Honor Flight, a program created by Honor Flight Tri-State to pay tribute to a special group of veterans—those wanting to participate in the yearly Honor Flight trip to D.C., but who are either wheelchair-bound or no longer able to travel or fly for health reasons. In an effort to honor and thank these veterans for their service, the Flightless Honor Flight has been designed to simulate an actual flight day—participants will experience the Welcome Ceremony, Color Guard, Bagpipers and Mail Call, as well as a virtual tour of the memorials and a special presentation of souvenirs. Most poignantly, these valiant vets will be treated to a “Welcome Home”—an expression of gratitude they may have never experienced. For more information or to apply to attend the program, contact Carole Quackenbush at 513.518.0377 or Dee Daniels at 513.277.9626. HonorFlightTriState.org/Flightless-Honor-Flight
