Anyone ever goto jungle jim's? i just read an article in this months Chile magizine. I looked on their website, it looks awesome! its 5 hours each way according to mapquest. Thats along way to go shopping, but they look to have everything!they even have a homebrewing section. I need a store like that close to my house.

They're about an hour away from me. First time there I spent just over $100 on single bottles. I love going. I wouldn't say it's worth a dedicated 5 hour drive though. But there's plenty more to do in Cincy to make a nice weekend trip for sure! I just go for the beer, but they have everything that relates to food from any country.

Don't work for CAT do you?

I used to live in Dayton and would make the trek every so often. Wonderful!

I agree to the "make it a weekend" thing...do some stuff in Cincy or go to the Air Force Museum in Dayton, which is only a little over an hour away. If you like that kind of stuff, I think it's better than the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum.

I'm a journalist for the Fiery Foods Industry so every year I make the 4.5 hour trek down there for their Annual Weekend of Fire. It's an AMAZING place. The place is huge, they have a great selection of beer (and some homebrew stuff too!), the cigar guy knows his stuff, and the amount of food they have is staggering.

Actually, you know that article you read in the magazine? Those are my pictures The article was written by the people I write for.

I always go when I visit Cincinnati. I used to be there every week when I lived there. I can get Sleeman Cream Ale there - the only place I have seen it south of the border.

If you do make the trip watch the expiration dates of the exotic food they dont always sell quickly. Make sure to use the restroom when your there. They have some interesting toilets
