The Northside Yacht Club is transforming into SkyRosa’s, “Cincinnati’s No. 1 Chizzaria,” just in time for Halloween.

For one night only, the bar will be slinging a disgustingly delicious blend of Cincinnati’s favorite regional delicacies: Skyline-style chili and LaRosa’s pizza.

The menu will feature a cheese coney wrapped in a slice of pizza (with an available vegetarian option); SkyRosa’s fries topped with chili and cheese on one side and marinara, cheese and pepperoni on the other (also with a vegetarian option); and smoked and cauliflower wings with a parmesan marinara or chili cheese sauce.

According to NSYC co-owner Stuart MacKenzie, “The SkyRosa was inspired by a true major league experience by NSYC owner Jon Weiner and local legend John ‘Black Arm’ Gerhardt in 2015, when each culinary mavericks decided to surprise their compatriot with Cincinnati delicacies. When they arrived back at their seats, Weiner carried two slices of LaRosa’s pizza and Gerhardt had two Skyline coneys in tow. After a couple of ice-cold Bud Heavies (the house red), they decided to combine the two by wrapping a delicious sweet LaRosa’s slice around a perfect ballpark chili cheese coney, thus creating the ultimate Cincinnati meal.”

Last year, NSYC transformed into Applebee’s for Halloween and people lost their damn minds. Expect a crowd...and heartburn.

4-10 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 31. Free admission. Northside Yacht Club, 4227 Spring Grove Ave., Northside, facebook.com/northsideyachtclub.
