Lunchtime Rendezvous


The two of us are the family members that have spent the most time in the Cincinnati area in recent years so we were the ones to suggest the Brown Dog Cafe as a lunch spot. Despite our disappointment that they limit Goetta to their breakfast menu, the ten of us enjoyed a delicious repast in a location significant to our family history. It’s located within Summit Park which has recently been constructed on land that had been the Parks Watson Airport, more commonly known as the Blue Ash Airport where Karen’s Dad earned his Private Pilot and Instrument certifications during the 1971-1973 timeframe when her family lived in this community. Over lunch we hatched plans to drive by various landmarks significant to each one of us and then to meet up at Graeter’s Ice Cream near our hotel.
