Constructing Cincinnati.

Earlier in the week, they finished knocking down the building across the street. Since then, they’ve been working to clear all the rubble and debris. I was kind of surprised to see how much progress they’ve made in just a few days…

It’s pretty crazy that a building can just disappear without a trace so quickly.๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿšงโค๏ธ

An icy good morning.

When we woke up this morning, it looked like just another rainy, wet morning. But when we were out walking the dogs, we noticed everything was covered in a thin layer of ice…

Everything except for roads and sidewalks that is. Still, most schools were on a two-hour delay. And I guess there were a lot of people who lost power. Thankfully, we didn’t lose power. And the ice didn’t affect us that much at all. We actually made it to work extra early. I wish we would have had more time this morning to take more photos of everything covered in ice.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒจ๏ธโ„๏ธโค๏ธ

Happy Taco Tuesday!

Happy Taco Tuesday! Let’s take extra care to follow the instructions today or you’ll be put to sleep when Lord Business unleashes the Kragle And then his evil powers will be unlimited.ย Can you feel me?ย Taken with Instagram. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒฎโค๏ธ

Constructing Cincinnati.

I could make a whole separate blog just about construction and demolition. It’s been really fascinating to watch. At least it has been for me. But I’m going to combine all the daily photos I took over the last week into this one blog post so our blog doesn’t become that blog all about construction. On Tuesday, I could see the windows of our old apartment at Sycamore Place across the way…

If you used that exit, the first step would be a doozy…

Monday, November 12th:

And I recorded this time-lapse video of the last bit of the demolition…

I also posted a very condensed time-lapse on my Instagram. And all that’s left now is just a massive pile of rubble and debris.ย It’s weird to not see that building across the street when I leave work…

Tuesday, November 13th:

It was an ugly building anyway. At least it’s out of its misery.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿšงโค๏ธ

Sidewinder coffee.

Our beloved Sidewinder Coffee recently redesigned their logo. On the right is their old logo, and on the left is their new logo. The new logo is so fancy. I’m still partial to the old simple lightning bolt logo because their coffee gives you a charge to start your day…

But regardless of their logo, you can’t beat their coffee. We love it so much…

We both wish we could get Sidewinder coffee every morning. ๐Ÿ˜€โ˜•๏ธโšก๏ธโค๏ธ

Timehopping.

Looking down our hallway at the fam…

Thanks, Timehop! ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฆ•โค๏ธ

Rhinegeist on Spring Grove?

We took a different way home from work this evening. We went home up Spring Grove Avenue and we passed by this huge new buildingย in Camp Washington just around the corner from Northside…

It must be a Rhinegeist brewing or canning facility. I wonder if they’re going to put a taproom in there as well? I guess we’ll have to wait and see… ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘ปโค๏ธ

Downtown Cincy Pop Shop.

Downtown Cincinnati Inc. has partnered with the City of Cincinnati to develop pop-up shops that bring together entrepreneurs, artists, makers, and small businesses with local property owners to fill vacant spaces and activate downtown. The first of these new pop-up shops is on Main Street next to Aronoff Center…

It’s a really cool idea. I can’t wait to check out this pop-up shop on Friday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ›๏ธโค๏ธ

Late night slices from Chameleon!

We walked down to Chameleon to get a late night slice of their terrific pizza pie…

Chameleon’s pizza is delicious. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸฆŽ๐Ÿ•โค๏ธ

Parfaits & calzones as big as your head.

This afternoon we walked over to our favorite brewery,ย Urban Artifact

Not too long ago at Urban Artifact, we finally got to try Wildfire Pizza Kitchen’s pizza. And their pizzas were outstanding. Today, we wanted to share one of their calzones and some cheese breadย for lunch. Their calzones are huuuuge…

They’re so tasty! Ours was stuffed with pepperoni, sausage, and mushrooms. And you can’t beat their cheese bread. It’s one of the best things around. To wash down all that deliciousness, Genifer had an Operation Plowshare and I had a Strawberry Parfait

They also had actual strawberry parfaits…

I was going to have one for dessert after we finished our calzone and cheese bread but we missed our window and they had it all cleaned up and put away by the time we finished. Next time, I’ll have to eat my lunch faster so I can have some dessert. What a delicious Saturday afternoon! And when we heading out, we saw this classic beauty…

And now our day is complete.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ“โค๏ธ
