Reds baseball game #4!

Tonight was special. Three years ago today, Genifer and I went out on our first date to a
Reds game. The last two years the Reds haven’t played on our anniversary. But this year,
BOOM! Finally, another Reds game on our anniversary!
Great American Ball Park
We got seats as close to the seats had on that magical evening…

We were right down the first base line, even with Jay Bruce in right field…

Bruce saw us there and realized that Genifer was spoken for…

Sorry, bro. You mixed your chance. Votto and Tony Cingrani…

These guys brought their brooms to the game tonight even though the first game of the
series was rained out. I don’t understand how the Reds could possibly sweep a three
game series if only two of the three games are actually played.

If the Reds lose tonight, I know who to blame…

Thanks for jinxing the Reds. Idiots.

Reds versus Cubs from GABP with @genmae5 on the anniversary of our first date three years ago...
We couldn’t tolerate these jokers for a minute longer…

So we moved up to sit where we love sitting, with the real fans…

I don’t know why people pay all that money to sit in the lower deck. It seemed like no one
around us down below was even watching the game. It was just like chit-chat social hour.

Mr. Redlegs was up in the upper deck kicking’ it with the real fans…

It was getting pretty chilly so we headed for home at the top of the ninth…

By the time we walked home, the Reds lost 9-4. Still, it was a great way to celebrate our
three year anniversary! I wish I knew how many Reds games we’ve been to together since
that first game. I’m know it’s well north of 75+ games. The one thing you can say is that
we just love our Reds baseball. 🙂

We have Reds versus Red Sox tickets!

Our tickets for the second game of the Reds vs. Red Sox series in August arrived today!

Now we have tickets to both of the Red Sox games at Great American Ball Park! 🙂

Three years ago today.

Three years ago today was my very first date with Genifer.

Three year anniversary
And since that day, it’s been the best three years of my life. Here’s to many, many more
years to come! I love you so very much, baby! 🙂

Hoseshoe Casino Thursday.

With us leaving to go out of town tomorrow for the weekend, we thought it would be a
good idea to use this week’s voucher for $10 in free slots play before flying out of the
Queen City. As usual, we had a bite to eat before letting the games begin. This week
we tried another one of BBP’s Burger of the Month, The Pimento Burger…
Horseshoe Casino
It was surprisingly spicy which probably had something to do with the Cayenne Bacon.
Yum! The Rock Bar had the Miller Lite 16oz. throwback aluminum cans. It’s such a cool
and distinctive look. I hope Lite keeps it around for a long while to come…
Horseshoe Casino
On our way to our favorite slot machine, we found a $5 poker chip on the floor…
Horseshoe Casino
And then our second spin on the slot machine, we won $33…
Horseshoe Casino
That’s the most we’ve ever won off the slot machines on one spin…
Horseshoe Casino
And then a couple of spins later, we won another $12…
Horseshoe Casino
Our second biggest win on a single spin…
Horseshoe Casino
And with that, we cashed out and played the rest of $10 to add another whopping 3¢…
Horseshoe Casino
We ended up walking out of the casino with $46 and change plus that chip we found…
Horseshoe Casino
Not too shabby off of free play! Thanks Horseshoe Casino! 🙂

Cyclones hockey game #12: playoff edition!

The quest to take back the Kelly Cup. Once again, it’s time for playoff hockey in downtown
Cincinnati. The Cyclones took the first two games in the best out of seven ECHL Eastern
Conference quarterfinals against the Orlando Solar Bears. Those games were in Orlando.
Tonight’s pivotal game three has the Cyclones back home at US Bank Arena…

Hopefully, they can close out the series against the Solar Bears at US Bank Arena

Brews, Blues & BBQ’s, part two.

This evening we headed back down to Moerlein Lager House for their Monday feature,
Blues, Brews & BBQ’s. I was definitely in the mood for a ginormous plate of BBQ.

Up among the rooftops.

This evening we hit up both rooftop bars in downtown Cincinnati. We started with the
Cocktail Terrace at 21c Museum Hotel. The first day of their season was Wednesday.
And we have been chomping at the bit to get back up there…

I honestly don’t know which rooftop patio I like better. And let me tell you, trying to decide
your favorite rooftop bar in downtown Cincinnati is a pretty tough problem to have. 🙂

Cincinati Earth Day.

This afternoon we headed down to Sawyer Point to check out the Earth Day celebration

We’ve really been enjoying all the flowers blossoming and blooming around downtown…
