Zip's Cafe has been in the same location on Mt. Lookout Square since 1926. They serve the best burgers and onion rings in Cincinnati. It's always packed. There are TVs on the walls and a model train runs around up on the wall.
The main room was packed so we sat at the bar. That's really more fun anyway. (A bit dark, though.)
Then we went to another Cincinnati favorite: Graeter's Ice Cream Parlor. If you haven't heard of Graeter's ice cream, you just haven't been paying attention. It's a Cincinnati icon.
Then we saw a movie at my favorite theater in the area, the Mariemont Theater. It's not a big cineplex, it's a neighborhood theater than shows movies for real movie lovers, not the bit blockbusters. The people who come here are adults who don't text or talk during the show.
The Village of Mariemont is a destination of its own. It began as a planned community in the 1920s, has pretty parks and fountains and tree-lined streets.
