Cordial in Korea Episode 002 | North American Farewell Tour, Leg 1
Episode 002 of Cordial in Korea chronicles Leg 1 of what we’ve elected to call our North American Farewell Tour.
We explored Cincinnati for the first time, and we did it in style: on our bicycles.
We toured Mount Adams, with the Cincinnati Art Museum, Eden Park, and the (ahem) Bow Tie Cafe.
We galavanted around Over-the-Rhine, where we enjoyed the famous Findlay Market, the renowned and historic Tucker’s Restaurant, and a few hip clothes places and coffee joints.
Our raison d’être was Ellie’s birthday present: a trip to her favorite band Over the Rhine’s own property, “Nowhere Else,” for a concert. Bootlegs from the concert are scattered throughout episode 002.
Our trip concluded with Memorial Day at my parents’ house near Akron, where we said farewell to friends and family.
We also rode our bicycles for the last time in North America, and got to tour the historic Tallmadge Church in the middle of Tallmadge Circle. Episode 002 includes some oral history from long-time members (and long-time lovers) we bumped into inside the church.
Thanks to bensound.com for the trance-inducing intro theme music.
