7am Stumper - May 22, 2015

Winner will receive two “I Love Lucy” tickets from Cincinnati Broadway Series!

Hope you're hungry. It's Memorial Day weekend, and that means it's time for the Taste of Cincinnati. A huge crowd turns out every year to sample food from the area's finest restaurants. The idea for "Taste" came from an executive with a local restaurant favorite.

Today's Stumper is:
The suggestion for "Taste of Cincinnati" came from an executive with which company?

1. Frisch's
2. Jeff Ruby's Culinary Entertainment
3. LaRosa's

The answer is Frisch's. According to the website for "Taste of Cincinnati" the festival started in 1979 as a one day event, at the suggestion of Karen Maier, vice president of marketing for Frisch's restaurants. She got the idea after reading about Taste of the Big Apple. The website says 5000 people attended the first "Taste" in Piatt Park. This weekend, 500,000 people are expected to sample food from 40 different restaurants. It's billed as the nation's longest running culinary arts festival.

Sunday Update From Scott Dimmich

1:35pm, Sunday, May 24, 2015

Good afternoon! After a sun/cloud mix to start the day, a partly cloudy sky has returned to the Tri-State this afternoon. Temperatures will fall through the 70s and 60s this evening with a partly cloudy sky overhead. The sky will be partly to mostly cloudy overnight with low temperatures in the mid to upper 60s. Monday will begin dry but the sky will become mostly cloudy with scattered showers and storms developing in the afternoon. Thanks to sustained winds out of the southwest between 10 and 20mph, highs tomorrow will be in the low to mid 80s. While scattered showers and storms will end Monday night, showers and storms will redevelop Tuesday. The Storm Prediction Center has placed the Tri-State in a marginal to slight risk for severe storms Tuesday and Tuesday night; the strongest storms in the Tri-State may produce large hail and damaging straight-line winds. Showers and thunderstorms will be scattered Wednesday and spotty Thursday. Rain and storms will increase in coverage from Thursday through Saturday. The week ahead will be warm and humid with highs centering in the low to mid 80s and low temperatures in the 60s. Monday's hour-by-hour forecast and the updated Planning Forecast are on Local 12 News Live at 6:30pm and 11pm...and on Star 64 at 10pm.
