BRU Burger Bar.

This evening we stopped in to check the brand new BRU Burger Bar at the corner of Walnut and Sixth Streets…

We started with a couple of the Ballast Point Pineapple Sculpins…

And we decided to share the BRU Burger…

Just look at all that burger deliciousness…

That was one delicious burger! And the fries were on point too. Perfect! And then Genifer tried their Peach Cosmo and I had a Founder’s Breakfast Stout…

BRU Burger Bar has some great, affordable burgers that large enough to share, and a great draft beer list. We’ll definitely be back very soon! And often! 🙂

Lunch at V’s Cafe on Seventh.

After checking the new FC Cincinnati store, we swung through the new V’s Cafe on Seventh to grab some lunch to go…

I ordered the Not Another Club… Turkey with house maple espresso bacon, white goat cheddar cheese finished with a red pepper aioli on a flaky croissant bun…

It was a pretty delicious sammich…

And their deviled eggs were pretty unbelievable…

I also some of the best broccoli cheddar soup I’ve ever had. Genifer ordered the Shamrock pastrami sammich but somehow ended up with the Dagwood instead. She said it was good but she really had her heart said on the Shamrock. We’ll definitely be back for lunch at V’s Cafe on Seventh. Hopefully then Genifer can finally get her pastrami.  🙂

A big day for FC Cincinnati.

Today was a big day for FC Cincinnati. First, FC|C opened a retail space on the ground floor of their headquarters on Fourth Street. So today at lunch, we went to check out the FC|C new store…

We had to go up to FC Cincinnati Headquarters on the third floor to find someone to let us into the store…

We picked up a couple FC Cincinnati shirts as early Christmas presents. Right now the store was stocked with the same items that are available from their online store. We were told that in the next week or so new items would be arriving including a 3/4 zip-up and pullovers. And then we were invited to watch FC Cincinnati’s big announcement unveiling of FC|C’s first class of player signings!

The first ever player announced in the history of FC|C was former MLS Rookie of the Year and Chicago Fire defender, Austin Berry

There were 11 FC|C players in all that were announced today as part of the first class. It’s a terrific start to the full 24 man roster. And it was pretty awesome to get to watch today’s big announcement from the conference room at FC|C Headquarters!

It’s a pretty exciting time to be in Cincinnati! 🙂
