Good morning.

Good morning form Northside. πŸ™‚

Bad news. Good news.

There aren’t very many things I miss about living downtown. Not many at all. I thought there would be more. But there just aren’t. One of the few things I miss is the ability to have Jet’s Pizza delivered. It’s kind of a weird thing to miss. But I just really love their pizza. And there really isn’t a Jet’s close to us in Northside. It’s kind of a bummer. But what are you going to do? The check engine light came on in our car on the way to work at the end of last week. So we had to run our Jetta out to the dealership so they could work on getting that issue resolved. That’s the bad news. The good news, ahem, the REALLY GOOD NEWS… There is a Jet’s Pizza just down the road from the VW dealership! So on the way home, we stopped and picked up some delicious Jet’s Pizza and their outstanding ranch dressing for dipping!!!

We started with some delicious Jet’s bread…

And there it is…

An eight-corner Jet’s masterpiece. Genifer got pepperoni and onions on her half. And I got sausage and mushrooms. So good. So good. Soo good. I love their thick pan crust pizza. It’s just really amazing. I’ve missed it some much! Hopefully, this will hold me over until the next time we find ourselves by a Jet’s Pizza. πŸ™‚

Happy birthday to me!

Today was my birthday! And we walked down to Django Western Taco for lunch…

Django has some of the best salsa around…

All I wanted for my birthday was the chicken biscuit from Django for lunch…

It was bang on, exactly what I wanted to eat on my birthday…

Afterward, we stopped for a slushie at Second Place…

It was a really wonderful, low-key birthday! Thanks to everyone for all the really great birthday wishes! πŸ™‚

Coming soon to Northside.

There are a number of new places coming soon to Hamilton Avenue in Northside. Bridges Nepali cuisine is moving into the space that used to be home to Melt…

And Higher Gravity is moving into space at the Gantry at the corner of Blue Rock Road and Hamilton Avenue. …

Higher Gravity will be right next to the new location of MeltΒ at the Gantry. Also getting really close to opening is The Hamilton

It’s a pretty exciting time to be in Northside! Taken with Instagram. πŸ™‚

It’s what’s for dinner.

Genifer’s mom sent over some goulash for dinner…

I haven’t had goulash in forever. I had forgotten just how good it is! πŸ™‚

Queen City Radio.

After work this evening, I walked up to 12th and Central Parkway to meet Genifer and our realtor, JJ for a drink at the relatively new, Queen City Radio

Another new really fun place! I love how more and more of the bars and restaurants that are opening here and there are including large outdoor patio spaces. πŸ™‚

It’s a sign.

Rooted Juicery and Kitchen.

We had lunch catered in from Rooted Juicery and Kitchen in Oakley. Rooted aims to provide their customers the most delicious and health-packed plant based foods possible. I ordered the burrito wrap. It was brown rice, Mexican beans, pickled onions, guacamole, pico, romaine, cabbage, walnut “taco” meat, cashew cheese & bbq sauce…

It was surprisingly good for being entirely plant-based. It would have been outstanding with some chicken or real taco meat. But I guess that’s not really their thing. I also had a blissful blend drink…

The drink was outstanding. I could drink a couple of those everyday. It’s good to try different things every now and then. Especially when it’s free. πŸ™‚
