Baste of Cincinnati goes Krogering

...or Kroger goes basting!

Today I went to Taste of Cincinnati - or Baste of Cincinnati, as I call it - and it's still about as boring as it was in 1983. Of course, the past couple years, a gang of Fred Phelps-style loudmouths has blocked access to many of the food stands and scared people away from the event, but other than that, there's not much happening.

But there was a minor plopping - not unlike at Ploptoberfest. I noticed someone had placed a plastic Kroger bag in the toilet in one of the portable restrooms. It looks like whoever did it made a special effort to make sure the Kroger logo was seen prominently smiling its ass off as it rested in the toilet bowl. Baste of Cincinnati also proves officials lied when they said they couldn't have Ploptoberfest on 5th Street anymore because of the streetcar, since Baste was still on 5th.

The only celebrity look-alike I saw was Sean Penn (as he appeared in one of his roles where he had long hair).

I'm not going to Taste of Cincinnati tomorrow, since it looks like a rainout.
