After a burger at Americano, we stopped down the block at Mita’s for a nightcap. Mita’s is the next restaurant from Chef Jose Salazar, and is named after his Colombian grandmother, his “Mita.”

The atmosphere combines modern, clean architecture with expansive 25-foot windows, bright and colorful Moorish tiles, reclaimed wood floors and warm inviting fabrics…

Genifer’s deliciously spicy El Luchador

I had a Caipirinha. Just like we had in Old San Juan

The interior of Mita’s is gorgeous. It’s one of those places that when you’re in, you don’t feel like you’re in Cincinnati anymore. It’s a beautiful space…

We’ll have to come back to Mita’s for lunch or dinner very soon. 🙂

Well… maybe lunch. The dinner menu looks stupid expensive. :/

Downtown details.

Here’s a collection of photos I took around downtown today…

Metrobot outside of the Contemporary Arts Center…

New warning signs for the high voltage Cincinnati Streetcar lines…

There wasn’t anybody ice skating on Fountain Square…

And the space once filled by the holiday tree on the Square was empty as well…

The tower crane is a constant reminder of downtown’s continual evolution…

Deskey was ready for tomorrow’s big Bengals playoff game against the Steelers…

Gothic versus modern architecture…

Holiday lights outside of Western & Southern…

And the holiday lights down at Lytle Park…

What Friday would be complete without a burger from Americano?

It was another great day in downtown Cincinnati. 🙂

Weston Art Gallery.

This afternoon I stopped by Weston Art Gallery to take a look at their latest installation, GIMMIE GIMMIE GIMMIE Curated by Todd Pavlisko

According to the exhibition guide, “Inspired by the punk band Black Flag’s influential 1981 song of the same name, artist, independent curator and Cincinnati native Todd Pavlisko will present two multifacted presentations that examine the varied experience of amassing objects and the practice of collecting. In the Weston’s street-level space, Pavlisko will taken a unique approach to this idea by selecting artists who accumulate and amass objects to form sculptural installations.”

“In the lower galleries, GIMMIE GIMMIE GIMMIE will segue into selections from several renowned yet private Cincinnati collectors. The region has a wealth of contemporary art collectors unintimidated by work that is socially conscious and often difficult in content. This rare and unique installation will unveil works never publicly shown in the area and shed light on how some individuals in our community collect and live with art.”

Another really interesting show. And definitely worth checking out if you’re downtown.
