Sam Adams Taproom.

This evening we also stopped by to check out the relatively new Sam Adams Taproom on Central Parkway right around the corner from Findlay Market. We drive right by it every day on the way to and from work. This evening we got to see what it’s all about…

It’s a pretty nice place. I could definitely see hanging out here on a regular basis…

We ordered a couple their giant pretzels…

That pretzel was amazing. It might have been one of the best pretzels I’ve ever eaten.

We hung out for a little bit and managed to come in third in a spelling contest they were having that night…

I’ve heard of weeknight trivia contests. But I’ve never heard of spelling bees. It was different. Anyway, we walked away with a $10 gift card. It’s such a fun place…

And their patio is going to be amazing in the summer…

Sam Adams new taproom. Come for the beer. Stay for the pretzels. 😀🍺🥨❤️

Northside Distilling Company.

After work this evening, we finally stopped at Northside Distilling Company on Court Street in Central Business District…

But first we stopped to admire the Artworks Cincinnati Toy Heritage mural…

And back to Northside Distilling Company

When we first heard about the Northside Distilling Company, we thought it was weird that it was located in Central Business District and not well, in Northside. But after hearing about their story from our bartender, Luke it all made sense…

The Northside Distilling Company started in the way that any good distillery starts, with friends. Some friends began home brewing in the basement, which lead to an interest in distilling. After purchasing a 13 gallon still and two years of paperwork later, Northside Distilling Company was born!

They outgrew the old barn in Northside, and in April 2017, expanded to our current production facility and bar front on Race Street right in the heart of downtown Cincinnati.

 

Northside Distilling is such a great little place with some really fantastic drinks. 😀🥃❤️

My work set-up.

I took a photo of my set-up at work this morning. I have it pretty nice…

The MacBook and iPad are mine from home. Work provides the desktop with the dual monitors and the really nice view of downtown Cincinnati. 😀💻🏙️❤️

It’s a little warmer today.

But really not that much warmer at all.  😀❄️❤️

It’s what’s for dinner.

Genifer made Spicy Korean Beef Ramen for dinner tonight…

It was pretty spicy but really delicious. Genfier finds all the best recipes. 😀🍜❤️

Summer Gods Tour.

This morning we got presale tickets to Third Eye Blind‘s Summer Gods Tour with Jimmy Eat World and Ra Ra Riot

We got tickets with our friends, Scott and Kathy. And we got really great seats…

We loved getting to see Third Eye Blind at Bunbury last summer and we’re so excited to get to hear them play again in a few months. 😀🎸🎶❤️

It’s so cold outside.

It’s so cold outside. Feels like -14º and then -17º? That’s just too dang cold. 😀❄️❤️

It’s what’s for dinner.

We stopped to get delicious NYPD cheese pizza to bring home with us for dinner…

NYPD cheese pizza is delicious. 😀🍕❤️

And Genifer made some terrific cheesecake brownies for my birthday…

YUM!

Good evening from Northside.

Good evening from Northside. 😀🌄❤️

Downtown details.

Look at my window at work…

Just playing with my Moment 58mm Tele lens. I just love the vignetting in the corners of the photos with this lens. 😀🏙️📷❤️
