Strauss Troy Market.

I keep forgetting about the Strauss Troy Market on Tuesdays at Fountain Square

I’ll have to try to remember to check it out for lunch next Tuesday. 🙂

Strauss Troy Market on the Square.

I was out running a few errands around downtown this afternoon, and I couldn’t help but notice that the Tuesday Strauss Troy Market has returned to Fountain Square…

And that means great food, sweet treats, fresh produce and handmade items each and every Tuesday at lunchtime from 11-2pm…

I can’t wait to start digging into some Eli’s BBQ and Revolution Rotisserie. 🙂

Cyclones hockey game #7.

Tonight, we went to our seventh Cyclones hockey game of the season

LET’S PLAY HOCKEY!

At the end of the first, the Cyclones were trailing the Quad City Mallards 1-0…

HOCKEY NACHOS!

At the end of the second, the ‘Clones still trailed but now it 3-1…

The Cyclones pulled their goalie to try to tie up the game…

But that’s the way it would end, 3-2 to the Mallards…

🙂

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

On our way across downtown to Redsfest, we stopped to admire some of the spectacular holiday trees around downtown. This beautiful tree was in the atrium of The Westin on Fifth Street…

And of course, they chopped down yet another beautiful, huge old pine tree to stand on the Square for the next month before being discarded… :/

I don’t know why the one on the Square really bothers me. And there was this beautiful tree in Carew Tower…

Downtown sure is beginning to look festive. 🙂

Downtown details.

Today is October 28th, and today’s high is near 70º. And noon today, the ice skating rink on Fountain Square is officially open for the ice skating season… 

Because why wouldn’t you want to ice skate before Halloween?  Or have an Halloween costume contest ON the ice? Makes perfect sense to me. :/

Another head-scratcher is the location of the Queen City Exchange on Court Street…

Queen City Exchange is one of those bars with stock market-style beer pricing. Prices change in 25-cent increments as supply and demand of different beers fluctuate. Prices drop dramatically during three-minute “market crashes” announced by a ringing bell. After the market “closes” at 9 pm, beer prices will be fixed for the rest of the night due to some silly Ohio law.

It’s really a pretty fun bar concept as we got to witness first hand up in Michigan at Kalamazoo Beer Exchange. It’s just a really odd location because there isn’t anything else nearby. :/

Window washers in peril.

When I was walking back to work from lunch, I couldn’t help but notice that a whole bunch of fire trucks had Fifth Street blocked off between Vine and Walnut…

Apparently, some window washers got themselves into a bit of a pickle…

Thankfully, everyone was okay. The window washers managed to get themselves to safety even before the fire brigade arrived on the scene. And then they managed to get their window washing platform righted…

YIKES! That’s a job I would not want. I don’t care home much it payed. No, thank you.

🙂

Cincinnati T-Shirt Expo.

While out running some errands, I wandered through Fountain Square this afternoon to check out the Cincinnati T-Shirt Expo

Remember when the Cincinnati t-shirt fest encompassed all of Fountain Square? Yeah, not this year. There were just a small handful of booths, and they were tucked away in the far northwest corner of Square…

But there was still some good stuff. Quality over quantity, I guess.

I almost got one of these Northside t-shirts…

Almost. $25 seemed a bit steep for it.

I got Genifer FC Cincinnati leggings she’s being wanting from Cincy Shirts. And I got three cool t-shirts and a pullover from Loyal Clothing all for $40. You can’t beat that. Good stuff. 🙂

Fountain Square Eats.

Lunch on the Square with about a half dozen of our favorite Cincinnati food trucks at Fountain Square Eats every Thursday from 11a-2. YUM!

Reggae Wednesdays.

Tonight, we went over to Fountain Square to check out our first Reggae Wednesday of the PNC Summer Music SeriesMy favorite Reggae band, The Ark Band made a surprise appearance…

They were the playing with Yabba Griffiths, who was all the way from Jamaica…

Just Jerks: Ena’s Jerkmania food truck was on the Square serving up delicious Jamaican Jerk Chicken dishes…

We shared the Spicy Jerk Chicken and rice box with fried plantains and maniac sauce…

Holy geez was it ever delicious and spicy! I’ll never get tired of looking at Carew Tower…

Great night. 🙂

Strauss Troy Market is back!

Strauss Troy Market has returned for yet another season of lunchtime goodness every Tuesday on Fountain Square!

And that means more delicious Eli’s BBQ Pulled Pork sammiches and other delicious options for lunch every Tuesday! 🙂
