Saturday afternoon in OtR.

We got up this morning, walked the dogs and then hopped on our Metro 17 bus to head down into Over-the-Rhine. Today was the first spring edition of The City Flea in OtR’s beautiful Washington Park

Thornwoods! I used to work with Ben at Deskey. He and his wife started this pop-up and their stuff is really awesome!

I also love all the creatures from Happy Groundhog Studios…

I also used to work with James Billiter at LPK, who does some terrific stuff as well…

It was another great edition of The City Flea. Afterward, we headed over to get a drink from one of Genifer’s favorite OtR spots, Sundry and Vice

And today, S&V had homemade empanadas…

DANG! I love empanadas so much!

Genifer loves Sundry and Vice’s draft Old Fashioned…

Next, we walked up Vine Street and were drawn in by this sign in front of panino

We’ll have to stop back at panino for sammiches. I’ve heard nothing but good things.

It seems like there is always something “coming soon” in OtR…

And then we walked over to Mecca

And we had one of their Chunkers…

And some popcorn…

And then we hopped in an Uber and headed back home. It was a really fun afternoon wandering around Over-the-Rhine. 😀🛍️🥃🍿❤️

 

Google Maps Local Guides Level 8!

I’ve been working really hard on my Google Maps Local Guides lately. I posted photos and reviews of almost every place we stopped on our recent epic road trip to try to propel myself from Level 7 up into the promised land of Level 8. And I was getting sooo darn close…

And then I finally made it to Google Maps Local Guides Level 8

HOORAY! Level 8! It doesn’t really mean a lot. I just think it’s fun. It’s kind of like my Swarm. It’s another way to share experiences and especially another place to share all the dang photos I take of every little thing every day.

And that’s really why I like Google Maps Local Guides! #LetsGuide 😀🗺️8⃣❤️
