For Taco Tuesday at Tickle Pickle

They also have Wing Wednesdays at Tickle Pickle. We’re going to have to check out both of them really soon! 😀🌮❤️

Northside Saturday.

We didn’t do a lot today. It was unseasonably warm. It was in the mid-60s. Really nice. But it was crazy windy. We took advantage of it being so nice outside and walked down to Boswell’s Alley for lunch…

Genifer woke up with a hankering for Bos Bites. And I woke up wanting a Super Grill. So we had another really great Boswell’s lunch. Afterwards, we noticed this mural on the side of a building on Blue Rock Road just kitty-corner to Urban Artifact…

Humble Monk Brewing Company, formerly Rabbit Hash Brewery is coming sometime soonish to Northside. On our way home, we stopped at Higher Gravity for a beer and the second half of the Michigan-Wisconsin game. And then we came home. It was a pretty nice Saturday afternoon in Northside. 😀❤️

I voted.

On my way to work this morning, I stopped to vote…

While I was waiting for the bus across the street, I couldn’t help but notice the terrific sign the library set out encouraging people to vote…

Awesome. What’s not awesome is that Cincinnati has to put up with this argumentative pipsqueak joke of a mayor for another four years. 😀✔️❤️

For Crafty Supermarket! It’s just around the corner…

Last year’s Crafty Supermarket was held at University of Cincinnati’s Campus Rec Center while Music Hall was undergoing all its renovations, and we found a bunch of really great stuff there. I can’t wait to see what they have at this year’s market. 😀🎁❤️

Downtown details.

When we lived downtown at Sycamore Place, the space directly below our apartment was always vacant. I was walking by our old building today and noticed that the once vacant space is now a leasing office for Sycamore Place and all of its sister properties in the northeastern corner of the Cincinnati’s Central Business District…

It’s nice to see they finally found a use for the space. 😀❤️

Northside Saturday.

We headed out this afternoon in Northside. We stopped to gawk at the giant maneki-neko lucky cat in the window of Chicken Lays An Egg

And then we continued on to Django Western Taco for lunch…

Genifer ordered a big bowl of chicken tortilla soup with one of Django’s biscuits…

And speaking of biscuits…

THE CHICKEN BISCUIT IS BACK AT DJANGO!!!

And all is right in the world once again. I missed it so much. It’s so tasty. Chef Josh also let us try a taste of another soup he’s working on, a chipotle ham and veggie soup…

From there, we walked down to Second Place

For a nice bourbon slush and some popcorn…

Whoever does the Second Place calendar posters obviously has some fun with them…

And on the way home, we stopped at Higher Gravity for a beer. We walked into a benefit for The Good Boy Foundation that was just winding down with a whole bunch of dog’s in Halloween costumes…

We saw on Higher Gravity’s Untappd menu that they had just tapped a Robe Red Velvet Stout from Streetside Brewery and Holtman’s Donuts and also just tapped a Holtman’s Apple Fritter Cider from March First Brewing

YUM! It was just another fun Saturday afternoon in Northside. 😀⬆️❤️

Deskey details.

I helped put up this wheat paste mural on the side of our building this afternoon…

It was promoting a Deskey/Bluearth sponsored documentary called LOOK & SEE: A Portrait of Wendall Berry

LOOK & SEE revolves around the divergent stories of several residents of Henry County, Kentucky who each face difficult choices that will dramatically reshape their relationship with the land and their community.

In 1965, Wendell Berry returned home to Henry County, where he bought a small farm house and began a life of farming, writing and teaching. This lifelong relationship with the land and community would come to form the core of his prolific writings. A half century later Henry County, like many rural communities across America, has become a place of quiet ideological struggle. In the span of a generation, the agrarian virtues of simplicity, land stewardship, sustainable farming, local economies and rootedness to place have been replaced by a capital-intensive model of industrial agriculture characterized by machine labor, chemical fertilizers, soil erosion and debt – all of which have frayed the fabric of rural communities. Writing from a long wooden desk beneath a forty-paned window, Berry has watched this struggle unfold, becoming one of its most passionate and eloquent voices in defense of agrarian life.

Filmed across four seasons in the farming cycle, LOOK & SEE blends observational scenes of farming life, interviews with farmers and community members with evocative, carefully framed shots of the surrounding landscape. Thus, in the spirit of Berry’s agrarian philosophy, Henry County itself will emerge as a character in the film – a place and a landscape that is deeply interdependent with the people that inhabit it.

Pretty neat stuff. 😀❤️

You Hold the Key.

You Hold the Key is a community awareness and engagement campaign aimed to promote dialogue and inspire empathy around the issue of homelessness in Greater Cincinnati through public art.

 Today, I saw some of the You Hold the Key artworks along Eighth Street on my way to pick up something for lunch…

 ArtWorks transformed people and places through investments in creativity. Each year, ArtWorks employs local youth and professional artists to create community impact across our region. 2017 marks the 10th Anniversary of the ArtWorks mural program.

Django Western Taco has a sign up in the window of their new location…

We can’t wait until they’re back up and running! Taken with Instagram. 😀🌮❤️

Northside nubs.

There’s another new business set to open sometime this fall in Northside, The Park Diner. It’s going into the space that was once occupied by Park Chili at the corner of Hamilton Avenue and Lingo Street…

It’s always exciting to have something new pop up just down the street from you. 😀❤️
