    I had Permanent Funeral at The Mutiny. I paid WAY less than $22, probably because the bartender had no idea what it was.

    One of my friends seems to live for Skyline chili. I admit that it is pretty good, but I was never crazy over it. Not a big chili fan anyway.

    there's so much awful on that list I don't know where to start. But yes, Cincy chili as worse than being hit by a truck? Exaggerate much, jackass?
