Arcade Legacy: Bar Edition.

After wandering through the Northside Summer Market and grabbing a bite to eat at The Littlefield, we decided to check out Arcade Legacy: Bar Edition. Arcade Legacy has been Cincinnati’s premier classic gaming destination since 2009. At their all ages location in the Cincinnati Mall, you can find 70+ arcade games and pinball machines, 20 classic and current gaming consoles, giant projection screens for the newest titles and Rock Band all for just one low admission price. At Arcade Legacy: Bar Edition in Northside, they offer a great selection of beers, cocktails and hot dog creations along with the nearly 50 arcade games and pinball machines, a classic console lounge, current console bar and an outdoor patio space. All games are free to play with the purchase of drinks or food except pinball which is 50¢ a game. It sounded a lot like 16-Bit down in OtR. And 16-Bit was fun the few times we went. But it was just such a looooong walk away from us. Arcade Legacy: Bar Edition is just a hop, skip and a jump from our house near the end of Hamilton Avenue on Spring Grove…

They don’t have many taps but still had some great options with Sweet Baby Jesus and Urban Artifact’s Keypunch…

We had perfect timing. Arcade Legacy: Bar Edition had just opened for the evening and we almost had the entire place to ourselves…

We got to play every arcade game in the place. There were a bunch of good ones. Genifer also schooled me at some Super Mario Bros on SNES…

We never had Nintendo growing up. We had Atari and Sega. The whole place was such a throwback to childhood. And so much fun! We’ll definitely be back to Arcade Legacy: Bar Edition again and again. I want to try some of those gourmet dogs as well! 🙂

Northside Summer Market.

Today was the Northside Summer Market… 

For over 15 years, the neighborhood of Northside has been hosting an annual, community-wide yard sale in conjunction with Corridor127 — better known as The World’s Longest Yard Sale. The event transforms our neighborhood into a shoppers paradise and gives both residents and visitors a chance to weave in & out of Northside in search of some the city’s most eclectic finds

We wandered up and down a few streets in Northside before calling it a day on the yard sale. It was really warm out and we got a late start on getting out to rummage…

We walked by The Kitchen Factory, which already smelled like delicious pizza…

And we walked by the future home of Apple Street Market

Hoffner Street was closed off for the Northside Summer Market…

The really cool Northside t-shirts I saw at the Cincinnati T-Shirt Expo on Fountain Square were there…

Some day I’ll break down and buy one. She had really beautiful, gorgeous paintings…

And there was a beer garden at Northside About Space

Afterwards, we had some outstanding cilantro & lime chicken wings with Thai coconut milk broth and warm 16 Brix bread at The Littlefield

It was great to wander around and start to explore our new neighborhood a little bit. 🙂
