The September meeting of the Happy Mouth Supper Club was on Thursday, September 12, 2002. It was Wendy’s month to pick, and we dined at an Indian restaurant called Taj Mahal in Forest Park.
You’ve wanted to know, so we found out. We polled several of the members of THE HAPPY MOUTH SUPPER CLUB to find out their preferences on several very important issues so that you could get to know them a bit better. Their answers are below.…
A total of 12 people dined with us… Ted, Tracy, John, Jay, Ed, Kristy, Wendy, me, and our guests Hope, Pat, Natalie, and Meg. Meg is a friend of ours that works at the Iron Horse. She helped Chef Jackson put together a special 4 course tasting menu for us, with pairings.

Once again the motley crew so designated as “Happy Mouth” ventured to the local establishment known to many as Zips.
A few of us Happy Mouthers tiring of trolling around the brash, trendy and expensive “It” restaurants (which alone is a juxtapostion here in Cincinnati), venture off to visit a true tavern. It was time for the group to leave the cork and bottle on the pedestal and step down to enjoy the true sense of fine dining.
A favorite to an Eastsider, Zips is a life experience at the local establishment. A tavern that has stood the test of time. Entering this place the ambiance is as if you have been greeted with the warmth of an old friend. Zip’s is a haunt to the college person on break searching for a glass of beer and old high school friends. Generations have passed through this tavern. Saturdays are filled with Hyde Park families looking for a cheap eat to feed their kids and the chance to be seen. At night, the college-bound bring their dates for a cheap eat.
