It’s a sign.

You know it’s almost summer in downtown Cincinnati when you start thinking about rooftop cocktail terraces

Northside could use a rooftop bar or two. 😀🍷❤️

Happy trails, Orient.

I was walking back to the office up Main Street and noticed that Orient had closed…

Orient was an odd little place. You couldn’t pay with a credit card. They only took cash. I don’t really carry cash so I get didn’t eat there as often as I would have liked. My friend, Chuck used to live right above Orient and was convinced it was a front for something. Say what you will about the place, they had some great food. And I’m sad to see them go. They will be missed. 😀🍚❤️

 

Taco Bell Cantina.

When we were downtown last weekend for the Bunbury Music Festival, we walked over to the AT580 Building at the corner of Main and Sixth Streets to find the brand new Wahlburgers. And right next to the new Walhburgers, we also found a brand new Taco Bell Cantina. You know what I did today for lunch? I walked right back over to the AT580 Building to check out the new Taco Bell Cantina…

It’s one of the nicest Taco Bell’s I’ve ever been to, that’s for sure. And they weren’t stingy the sauce packets either. Just look at all that Fire Sauce…

I ordered my favorite, three Chalupa Supremes and a large Gatorade Fruit Punch. It’s pretty awesome to have Taco Bell as a quick and inexpensive lunch option in downtown Cincinnati. I’ll definitely be Living Mas at Main and Sixth in the near future. 😀🌮👍❤️

Northside Saturday.

This afternoon we walked down to Blue Jay for lunch…

We tried their cheese coneys and chili cheese sammiches and they were awesome!

After lunch, we were headed off to the grand opening of favorite coffee shop, Sidewinder’s brand new coffee roastery…

But first, we stopped in Shake It Records…

Seriously, we need to get a record player…

They had so many good records that I would have bought today if we had a record player. Walking down Hamilton Avenue right next to Hoffner Park, it looks like a new smoothie and juice bar is going in…

We made it all the way down Spring Grove to Sidewinder’s new coffee roastery…

Their new coffee roaster…

There was some serious roasting going on in here…

Original artworks by very talented artist and Sidewinder barista, Amy Poliner…

They’re going to need some more coffee beans…

We had a coffee drink and hung out for a little while and learned about the process of roasting coffee beans. It’s a lot more complicated than I thought it would be…

From there we stopped at Second Place to have a bourbon slushie and kill a little bit of time while we waited for our friend’s backyard birthday party to start…

W estayed at the backyard birthday party until it got too dark to see anymore in the backyard. And then we headed home. It was a really fun day in Northside. 😀❤️

Summer Hours: Taft’s Brewpourium.

Deskey lets us work just a half-day every other Friday throughout the summer. They call it Summer Hours. They’re pretty flippin’ awesome. And they’re back! Today was my first Summer Hours Friday, and we went to Taft’s Brewpourium for lunch…

We had a couple of beers and shared a pizza and some knots with beer cheese. Summer Hour Fridays are the best Fridays. 😀🍕🍻❤️

It’s a sign.

When we were walking back to our hotel, Genifer noticed this sign for a coffee shop across Sixth Street. And even with all the thousands of times that we walked down Sixth Street when we lived downtown, we couldn’t remember if this was an old sign or a new sign for a coffee shop that’s coming soon…

It got us talking about all the times we walked down Sixth Street to Fountain Square and all the fun we had downtown. And how much it’s changed and how much it’s still the same. And how much we like our Sidewinder Coffee in Northside. 😀☕️❤️

Best Friends.

This morning we dropped the buddies off at Best Friends to play for the weekend…

Best Friends is the nicest pet boarding spot I’ve found, and the people there are so nice. Oscar doesn’t really like being around a lot of other dogs so we got him the Individual Play & Stay with private walks and one-on-one time with people. Mack loves socializing and playing with other dogs so we got him Group Play & Stay. I hope our guys had a good time there this weekend. 😀🐾🌈❤️

They guys seemed pretty tuckered out when we picked them up Monday morning.

Fridays are for Sidewinder.

Every Friday morning we stop at Sidewinder for coffee…

We love Sidewinder’s coffee drinks. It’s our little reward for making it through the week to another Friday. 😀☕️❤️

It’s a sign.

I love these Vote FOR Issue 2 signs…

😀❤️

The Deskey holiday party x Hightail.

Tonight, we hopped in an Uber and headed up into Mount Adams to Chapter for this year’s Deskey Holiday Party

It’s been ages since we were last in Mount Adams...

For whatever reason, I always sort of dread holiday parties, But I always end up having a really good time. And this party was no exception. It was a very good time. After the party was over, we went across the street to check out the newest 4EG bar, Hightail

It’s another great 4EG bar. They have so many great bars around Cincinnati. We wish they would open one or two in Northside. Great night. 😀📖🍺🍻🐳❤️
