The Best Sunday.

It was a beautiful Sunday morning…

Good morning from Northside…

We headed down to The Banks for another Sunday Reds baseball game…

We stopped at Jefferson Social for a bite to eat before the game…

Before we headed into the ball park, we stopped for a DORA drink…

The Reds were playing Cleveland. The Reds could sweep the three game series with a win today…

We had standing room only tickets. So we just kind of wandered around the ballpark…

We’d watch a bit of the game from here and a bit from there…

The Reds lost to the Indians 6-3. But it was just amazing to be back at the ball park again…

We rode the streetcar up into Over-the-Rhine again…

We stopped for a post game drink at Sundry & Vice…

It’s one of Genifer’s favorites…

We walked up to Holiday Spirits…

And from there, we called it a day and hopped in an Uber home…

And then we took the dogs around the block…

Good evening from Northside…

It was such a beautiful evening…

It was the best Sunday. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐ŸŒฎ๐Ÿบโšพ๏ธ๐Ÿนโค๏ธ

The world almost felt normal today.

Good morning from Northside…

This morning we hopped in an Uber to get downtown to go to our first Reds baseball is what seems like forever. Before the game, we stopped at the relatively new DORA (Designated Outdoor Refreshment Area) in The Banks…

We stopped at Fishbowl at The Banks to share a little fishbowl…

And then we headed into Great American Ball Park…

It felt so good to be back home…

BARGE!

And this one belongs to the Reds! They whooped the Cards 12-1.

We found our Reds All-Star Legacy brick

We rode the Streetcar up into OtR. We walked to The Pony to share their incredible Chicken Fingers and then we were going to walk to Mecca for a drink or two but they don’t open until six. So we wandered around OtR for a bit…

And ended up at Holiday Spirits for a drink…

And then we hopped in an Uber and headed for home.

Good evening from Northside…

And it was an incredible day too. The world almost felt normal today. We’ve missed baseball so much. Especially Sunday baseball. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โšพ๏ธ๐Ÿ”๐Ÿปโค๏ธ

Hard to believe, it was nine years ago.

Nine years ago today, my parents, Genifer and I got to see Sir Paul McCartney perform live in concert at Great American Ball Park during his On the Run tour…

It was an incredible show! Just beyond words good. And we had a perfect vantage point of the show from our seats…

Timehopping.

Five years ago today was the MLB All-Star Game live from Great American Ballpark in beautiful downtown Cincinnati…

Five years on and it’s still one of the most incredible sporting events I’ve ever attended. But it wasn’t just the All-Star Game, it was all the build-up to the game, all the months of excitement around Cincinnati and all the events of All-Star Week that made it such a memorable event. That, and getting to snap a photo of these guys…

We’ve done some pretty incredible stuff in Cincinnati.

Thanks for all the wonderful memories,ย Timehop.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฆ•โšพ๏ธโค๏ธ

Nine years ago today.

Genifer and I went on our very first date. We went to a Reds game. We sat out by Jay Bruce, and saw Aroldis Chapman close out the Reds win…

Oh, the butterflies I had at that game. It took me six innings just to put my arm around her seat at the game. Afterward, we walked up to Mainstay Rock Bar to see Bad Veins…

It was one of the best evenings of my life because of the incredible woman I got to spend it with. 3,285 evenings later, and I still get butterflies every day. Thank you for spending the last nine years with me, Genifer. I love so so very much. And I’m glad we have every one of them all chronicled right here. ๐Ÿฅฐโšพ๐Ÿ˜

#TBT Pause for paws.

Milan used to love walking over to Fido Field in downtown Cincinnati. When it was walk time, he’d just sit and stare at you…

And then he’d walk with you through P&G Gardens down to Lytle Park and then start pulling until he got to Fido Field. And he would be so happy…

He loved going up by the fenceline…

He’d wait for cars to come around the corner of Gilbert and he’d race them down the fenceline. And he’d beat a lot of them. He was so fast…

Always remembering all the good times with the bud dog. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿพโค๏ธ

Happy birthday, Union Terminal!

A very happy birthday to Cincinnati’s Union Terminal and all our friends over at Cincinnati Museum Center. Work started on Union Terminal all the way back in August of 1929. It was completed and officially opened to the public 87 years ago today!

Remember when Genifer and I got to go on a behind the scenes tour of Union Terminal? And all the #VoteYESon8 #VoteYesUT support to get Union Terminal the restoration help it so desperately needs?

Happy birthday to a historic Cincinnati treasure. Here’s to another 80+ years! ๐Ÿ™‚

Downtown details.

Another beautiful mural.

Check out this Artworks mural at the corner of Vine and Seventh Streets…

It might not be new but it was new to me…

It’s another really pretty mural in downtown Cincinnati. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŽจ๐Ÿ–Œ๏ธ๐ŸŒบโค๏ธ

It’s what’s for lunch.

Most days, I take lunch with me to work. But if I don’t, there’s usually leftover food from lunch meetings or I’ll just make myself a sammich with the company ham in the kitchen at Grey Midwest. Today, I was having a craving for a warm turkey sammich on a bagel. So I walked over a block to Elm Street…

Bagel Stop in the Enquirer Building!

I got their Signature Turkey Club on a jalapeno bagel, and it was exactly the sammich that I wanted for lunch…

Great sammich! I might have just find my new go-to when I go out to lunch. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฆƒ๐Ÿฅฏโค๏ธ
