I feel bad for you. There must be a paucity of places to eat in that backwater.

Let's see, if I walk a half mile or less, there are at least 5 sushi places, 3 hot dog places, a couple french places, a few thai places, a vietnamese place, a bunch of mexican burrito places, some american places, some chinese, and, of course, a McDonald's.

 

I'm heading out to the shore for a vacation with the family tomorrow, though, so I'm away from Chicago (and the computer) for the next week.

It said I'm Cleveland. Then again there are only 10 options' date=' and it doesn't list what the other ones are. So I have no basis for comparison.[/quote']

 

HAHA - The quiz sucks. It said I was Cleveland and called me BLUE COLLAR! Haha - me blue collar? Why because I prefer Draft Beer over some gay mixed drink?

 

I don't think it is possible to be blue collar if you don't listen to Country or Classic Rock music and I hate both!

 

My answers were:

 

1.Go to the nicest restaurants and hit the nightlife scene, bars, nightclubs, or even a play or the opera.

 

2. Baseball

 

3. Draft Beer

 

4. Filet Mignon, Lobster, or anything expensive

 

5. Blue

 

6. A Muscle Car

The quiz said I was liberal and independent minded like San Francisco. Hmm??? Well I guess that's true, but it gave my score as 2 for San Francisco, 1 for New York, 1 for Boston, 1 for Cleveland and I forget which others, so I'm really a combination of cities.

Did anybody watch the Simpsons last Sunday night?

 

Marge and Homer were supposed to go to Dayton to visit a cousin or an uncle and stay at the "Dayton Arms Hotel".

 

While waiting for their connection flight at an Alaskan airport, Marge and Homer decided to sneek on another connecting flight to Miami. Meanwhile, back in Springfeild, Bart and Lisa were left home with grandpa and they were watching the channel 6 news. A breaking news story broke - A killer tornado was pounding Dayton, Ohio and heading straight for the "Dayton Arms Hotel". They broke to a live scene and a killer tornado was tearing right through downtown Dayton and slammed into the "Dayton Arms Hotel".

 

Anyways, did anybody catch that?

Yeah, that's an old episode. It was Dayton of course because of Nancy Cartwright, the Bart Simpson voice, from Kettering.

Hmmm...flying from Springfield to Dayton?

 

And tornados in the Miami Valley...there was that tornado in Xenia.

 

Incidentally, another pop culture figure from Kettering is the political cartoonist Ted Rall.

Rob Lowe I think is from Oakwood, actually (as is Allison Janney). Johnathan Winters (comedian) was from Kettering as well.

Well I am flying back to Ohio from Denver tomorrow morning. It sucks I have to fly into the puddle jumper airport of Dayton International, ah scratch that - I mean Dayton Regional. Denver is a great city as it was the other times I had visited. I am truly jealous of their free bus service on 16th street and their incredible light rail system that will soon reach E/C-470. But while I have enjoyed Denver, I am still looking forward to coming home.

 

On the way I flew into Minneapolis and this time I am flying into Detroit. It was my first time in Minneapolis Airport and this will be my first time in Detroit Airport.

 

I miss the green, but the mountains here are breathtaking! After all Cincinnati's hilly terrain was what sold me on the metro so it is no surprise that I would love Denver.

Hurry home. I was in Boulder a few years ago for a conference and thought it was nice, but I'll take S.W. Ohio over the Rockies any day however fashionable Colorado may be considered these days.

Home Sweet Home! Back in Cincy! The first thing we did was stop off and get some Cincinnati Chili - YUM!

 

Someone please tell Dayton Airport that the Wright Flyer carpet is ghetto! Can someone please update that airport! I will rethink spending the extra money to fly into CVG. I just don't feel like I am home unless I get to decend down the "Cut in the Hill" and see that amazing view of downtown Cincy.

 

I never realized how shitty most airports are until I went to Minneapolis and Detroit's! Detroit might have issues downtown but their airport RULES!

 

Denver is indeed a great city. Three great districts in their downtown from Larimer Square to LODO to 16th Street! I am truly jealous!

I used to think I preferred grass, but I've changed my mind.

 

ANYTHING is better than the "frud" that the Bengals have had to play on for the last couple of years. I was sick of hearing the players complain.

 

This new surface should ultimately save maintenance money by not having to be patched, replaced, re-sod, etc.

 

If it was a baseball field, I would think differently. There's nothing like walking into the ballpark and smelling the grass. But no one smells grass in November....

I spent my first amount of time in Lambert Intl this weekend' date=' and I decided it was the worst I had been in so far. The construction doesn't help either, but it was [i']awful[/i].

 

Now that I'm starting my new job (tomorrow morning... I'd better get to bed!) I'll be flying someone pretty much every week, so I'll get to check out some others and probably see some that are even worse...

St. Louis is a 10 compared to Dayton.

 

I would rank my top 5 as:

 

Minneapolis

Detroit

Cincinnati

Denver

National (DC)

 

I am flying to Lambert today. Concourse D is a ghost town. 50 gates - ALL CLOSED!

 

If you fly Southwest out of Lambert you will be more impressed. It is a brand new terminal called East Terminal.

I'm sorry but Dayton's Ghetto Airport utterly destroys St. Louis' pitchfork design airport. I had a complete hellish experience(s) in that Lambart crap shithole and it is by far one of the worst airports in existance. I'll take the Ghetto Airport over that any day.

Dayton has a ghetto airport? Since when? Yes, its very low key, but we are not talking about a big regional hub here...

 

My experience with Lambert wasn't that bad.

 

My worst was Philadelphia. The place was congested, under construction, and was surrounded by a chain link fence topped by concertina wire. Welcome to The City of Brotherly Love? Uh...I dont think so...

LaGuardia gives PHL a run for their money in horridness. It's appropriate that Shea Stadium and the Mets are so close to that craphole built atop Manhattan's waste (wink wink, blah blah at Monte). Also, Dallas needs to add, well, moving walkways on their crescent terminals.

Let's put it this way. Dayton's airport is by far the WORST airport I have ever flown into. It passed Melbourne Airport in Florida and Sacramento Airport for that title. A Dayton person can't see this because after all they are Dayton people. They think small, hence why I needed to live in the Cincy metro and commute to Dayton for work. While the people I work with in Beavercreek like the airport because of the ease of getting in and out - thinking small ;) I love big, no I love HUGE aiports with thousands of people, stores, restaurants, excitement and it has to be clean and have a eye pleasing look. I love CVG for this - minus Terminal 1 and 2. I land at Dayton Airport and they send us up some staircase with peeling paint to a terminal that is so outdated and horridly ugly. That Wright flyer carpet is absolutely horrid. And the sad thing is that it is CUSTOM MADE! HAHAHA While Dayton is not a hub, nor does it have the pedestrian traffic in the terminals, they could at least modernize it. The Vandalia area around the airport is an embarrassment of tackiness. Even the descent to the airport is nothing but corn fields and farm land with a few sprawly Englewood neighborhoods creeping in. The I-70 merger west off I-75 is also deadly, I can't believe it has taken them that long to fix that. At least they thought enough to mold the concrete of the pillars with jets to commemorate the flying heritage of Dayton.

 

After all Dayton is the birthplace of Aviation!

I couldn't agree with you more monte. Remember how I used to bash Dayton back in the day? Now that you've been around the area for a while, do you kind of see what i'm talking about?

Again, it's better than LaGuardia. Take it from somebody who's flown into Madrid, Tokyo, New York, Hong Kong, and Cairo, yes "big city" airports.
