FC Cincinnati x Second Place.

After Brink, we rode the bus from up in College Hill back down Hamilton Avenue into Northside and stopped into Second Place to watch our FC Cincinnati play away to Bethlehem Steel for the second time the last five matches. It doesn’t make any sense but whatever. FC Cincinnati away matches are more fun with a couple of Second Place’s bourbon slushes…

FC Cincinnati lost 1-0 to Bethlehem Steel. And after today’s match, an FC|C player has been sent off after receiving a straight red card in four of the last five matches. It’s been ridiculous and pretty unbelievable. But at least, the slushies were delicious. :/

Brink Brewing Co.

This afternoon we rode the 17 bus up Hamilton Avenue into College Hill to check out the new Brink Brewing Company… 

We got a flight and headed outside to Brink’s awesome back patio…

We tried their Debbie Jean Blonde Ale, Buona Sarah Saison, Even Flow Brink Berry Wheat, Moozie Milk Stout, Peach Cobbler Moozie Milk Stout and not pictured was the award-winning Brink English Brown Ale…

I really like Brink’s logo…

The Peach Cobbler Moozie Milk Stout was outstanding…

Piggin-N-Grinnin BBQ was serving up BBQ out on Brink’s patio as well…

I got the brisket sammich, and we shared some mac and cheese and Grippos BBQ chips…

And Genifer got a pulled pork sammich…

It was some really delicious BBQ! And some delicious beers. We really enjoyed the Even Flow Brink Berry Wheat…

GIANT SCRABBLE!

It was a bunch of fun hanging out at Brink. And it was so easy just to hop on the bus and we were there in no time. We’ll definitely be back very soon! 🙂
