  1. That's largely a function of where land was annexed, though. If Dayton were able to annex along 75 South, 35 East, or 675 to the south/east, things would look very different from a municipal population perspective. I agree, and this wasn't something I or (I think) @edale were contradicting. The only dispute was with @jonoh81 citing the recent halt in annexation nullifying annexation's effect on population numbers. It's definitely still a part of the story.
  2. I think the argument is that population growth from development on annexed land is still, at least in part, "due to annexation." I think this is supported by the simple fact of it being cheaper and easier to develop on a green field than doing in-fill. It would further be supported if developer interest in the land in question was part of the impetus behind annexation (which would clearly be the case if, e.g., annexation is tied to utility expansion; demand for utilities would come from people wanting to develop the land).
  3. The Banks and 4th Street Live both had a Howl at the Moon dueling piano bar. (The Louisville one is still there.)
  4. Lol. I had a very similar experience in Louisville a couple years ago. I went to a craft beer bar on Bardstown Rd. with a bajillion taps (the name escapes me) and noticed, looking at the menu, they'd recently had a tap takeover from Rhinegeist. (They still had some other stuff, but Rhinegeist made up more than half the list.) I asked the server for a recommendation for something local and they started right into the Rhinegeist stuff. It got me thinking about what non-local stuff someone in Cincinnati might recommend as "local," particularly in terms of beer. Maybe West 6th? But probably not. I definitely don't think anything from Louisville would make the cut. It might depend to some degree what side of the river you're on. A bartender in Covington is probably more likely to steer a patron towards West 6th or KY Bourbon Barrel Ale.
  5. I've seen people in other cities (Louisville, Columbus, Indy) recommend Thunderdome restaurants (Eagle, Bakersfield) to tourists/visitors as though they're restaurants unique to their city. Cincinnatians may be more clued-in on average since there are city and suburb versions of many of these places. But I think you're right that many don't realize, and I often see the Eagle recommended to visitors from nearby cities that have one. Kind of like the Hofbrauhaus, which long gone are the days that the Newport one was the only one in the US.
  6. Ha. There's a good chance I was frequenting those BBS's at that time.
  7. This is the kind of random fact I browse UrbanOhio for.
  8. It appears rather sketchy, like buying votes. I don't know if it's illegal, but probably violates the spirit of some laws if not the letter.
  9. I am planning to attend.
  10. There's a Kroger and an urban-format Target a couple blocks from each other near UC in Cincy.
  11. Definitely this. Though I would say HP beats Mt. Lookout easily in fancy residential architecture, if we're pitting the wealthy neighborhoods against each other.
  12. I'll echo what others have said. CP clearly has the better selection of coasters (probably the best in the country). But KI also has a good selection of different coasters; nothing to sneeze at at all. Plus KI has smaller crowds, which means you can more easily ride favorites more than once. IMO, the Beast is worth the trip alone. Nothing like that at CP.
  13. I said "fairly unique", which may not have been the best phrasing, but without finding hard numbers I've found a few references to Cincinnati having a worse landslide problem than anywhere else, so "uniquely bad" may be correct. e.g. this quote from a 2007 Cincinnati Post (RIP) article:
