It's National Chili Dog Day! We brought back this story of the Chili trail and four WCPO.com staffers' journey to enjoy one of Cincinnati's favorite foodstuffs.

ICYMI, one day in the office several of us were talking about Julie Niesen Gosdin’s Top 9 Chili Parlors. That sparked an idea: What if we went to all of them in one day?

Readers, that day was today.

WCPO.com staffers Mike Canan, Brian Mains and myself, Tasha Stewart, along with illustrator/cartoonist Kevin Necessary, embarked on the Cincinnati Chili Trail, starting at the Empress Chili in Alexandria, Kentucky, and ending at Blue Ash Chili. Check out the full route.  And read the recap below.

See you on the trail!
