zow's Cincinnati mini-TR
« on: August 26, 2015, 05:22:45 PM »
Let's try quick and almost real time TR.

I had a meeting in DC yesterday and today, until noon.  My son (yes, the one who saw toured the AMS red light district) flew BOS-DCA (US, 4500 Avios) this morning and we met at his gate. We spent an hour in the Admiral's Club.
(they also had a nice looking spread of non-kosher stuff).

Our DCA-CVG flight was on an Emb RJ -- first time for my son, so that was kind of fun. The whole gate 35X process is not fun (escalator down to Dante's 6th or 7th level, then a bus to the plane) but it was fine today. I imagine it's pretty nasty in bad weather -- be it heat/humidity or snow.

In any case, Uber from CVG to Hyatt Regency. I don't have any status so they didn't give any breakfast. I wasn't expecting it. The room is nice. It's an award room, 7,000 IIRC.  Someone asked for pix of our last stay at Hyatt regency London, so here are a few pix. Nothing special, but very nice, clean, new-feeling.


(extra credit if you can figure out what is on the bathroom counter).

About 20 minutes after we got to the room, someone delivered a nice welcome gift from the manager.
it is not as nice as what we got in London (that was a bottle of nonK wine and nonK nuts/candies), but I still appreciated the sentiment very much.  It Is rare to be appreciated and valued, so I still get a kick out of it.

We're planning Indian food, ballgame, and ice cream this evening. I will try to post as it goes.

I was guessing some kind of supplement powder.

Nope, it's from Israel (Super-Pharm), but it's not shampoo. It's something you ingest. (I guess you could ingest shampoo, but you know what I mean.)

Yes, getting warmer.  I recommend that everyone use it daily for digestive health. I also find it keeps me from always being hungry, so it helps with diet/weight.  Does that help?

Actually, looking now, I see you can't really make out the writing.  It's psyllium (like Metamucil). 
I know: I'm very weird, but I do this as a public service. :)

I knew it was israeli, I just figured shampoo cause it was in the bathroom...friend of mine actually uses it (metamucil) quite often.

Part 2.
Dinner at Great American Ballpark. There are no kosher concessions here, so we had Uber deliver Indian food from Amma's kitchen.
First, the park is beautiful. Classic Midwest baseball.


Vegetable curry

And some very good naan.

Dessert will be palag mutter. Will try to get photo before we consume.



The game is kind of a blow-out right now, but the food more than made up for it.

And so is the delicious Graeters' ice cream, which we enjoyed walking back to the hotel. Sorry, no pix, but here is their website:

Part 3. Dessert.
I had the name wrong in my prior installment. The dessert is gulab jaman. 


The game got slow in the last two innings -- as most games seem to do -- but we saw a great diving catch by Reds 2B Brandon Phillips. Watch for it on SC tomorrow!

As I said, we stopped for ice cream on the walk home. Delicious. 

Off to bed, because we are heading to Philly tomorrow. Maybe another mini-TR?

I am so mad. Too many potential trips in my head to keep things straight. One of the pitfalls of travel.
