Here’s a review of the questions:

  1. Cincinnati’s culinary community was well represented in Season 16 of Top Chef by this energetic young chef who opened CWC, The Restaurant, in Cincinnati’s Wyoming neighborhood. What is her name?
  2. One of the world’s greatest film directors was born in 1946 in Cincinnati. His family eventually moved west in 1957, ending up in Los Angeles. He directed TV shows like Marcus Welby, MD and Columbo, before releasing his first movie, Duel in 1971. What is the multiple Oscar-winning filmmaker’s name?
  3. What was the name of Covington, KY, brewery that had a 100-year run, from 1866 to 1966? Its name on the side of the historic building is still visible from the highway as you pass the Covington exit on I-71/75. The building was purchased by Kenton County and is now Kenton County Government Center.

And here are the answers:

  1. Caitlin Steininger appeared in only one episode of Top Chef but has continued bringing her culinary passions to the world via her immensely popular Facebook platform, “Cooking with Caitlin.” She recently left the team at CWC to focus on raising her children.
  2. Steven Spielberg’s family left Cincinnati when he was 4, and when he was living in Arizona a few years later, he made his first movie at age 12. From this 3-minute film, The Last Train Wreck, he went on to direct a few movies you might have heard of: Jaws, E.T., Close Encounters, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and Schindler’s List, to name just a few.
  3. Bavarian Brewing was part of a thriving group of breweries in the early 20th Century, including Burger, Wiedemann, and Hudepohl. The city’s breweries all struggled during Prohibition, but Bavarian came back strong for many years before feeling the pressure to compete with national beer brands. The building was renovated and reopened in 1998 as Jillian’s pool hall. The new government center gives a nod to the past with an eye on the future.
