Sometimes worlds collide and something truly beautiful happens. Today, the fine folks of the Queen City were graced by this very phenomenon.
Two well-known and much-loved members of the Cincinnati media collaborated to bring us a wildly entertaining coney- and flute-infused workout video from a downtown Skyline Chili.
Q102's Natalie Jones, who leads fun and enthusiastic Facebook Live workout videos, and The Cincinnati Enquirer's Kathrine Nero, who hosts Coffee Break with Kathrine Nero via Facebook Live, connected a few weeks back while recording at one of the in-progress ArtWorks murals.
Jones asked Nero to participate in her workout video at the mural, but she had to decline due to not having the right clothes. She did, however, offer to play the flute in a forthcoming video.
And today — praise be to the coney gods — was the day it all came together.
In celebration of National Chili Dog Day (aka Coney Day if you live in Cincinnati), the duo teamed up at the Fourth Street Skyline for a flute-serenaded workout session, featuring hits by Lizzo and One Direction, complete with three plates of coneys that are utilized — and consumed — during the workout.
Alright, that's enough backstory, just go ahead and watch it. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did. Happy National 'Coney Day,' y'all.
