Press on Monmouth.

After dropping Oscar off at his groomers in Newport for his haircut, we stopped into Press on Monmouth again for some coffee…

We ordered a couple of coffees and I got another one of their sausage biscuits to go…

We really like Press on Monmouth. 😀☕️❤️

Press on Monmouth.

After dropping off Oscar at his groomers, we stopped at Press on Monmouth over in Newport for some coffee…

We follow Press on Monmouth on Instagram and their stuff always looks so good…

It’s so cute inside…

Genifer got a latte and I got a cold brew coffee on nitro….

Genifer also got a chicken cobb salad for later. I forgot to take a photo of it. But it was huge. I got a sausage biscuit with egg and hot honey…

It was an incredible breakfast sammich that I wish I could eat every morning. I wish we could get over to Press on Monmouth more often. They have delicious stuff. 😀☕️❤️

Pause for paws.

We took Oscar to get his haircut this morning. He was getting pretty fuzzy…

We took him to Wags-n-Whiskers across the river in Newport…

And now he looks all handsome again with his Thanksgiving bandana and all…

Genifer posted this awesome before and after on her Instagram

Oscar’s so handsome. 😀🐶❤️

The Deskey holiday party.

Tonight was Deskey’s holiday party at The Frock in Covington…

After the party, we stopped at Braxton Brewing Company for a beer. It was a great night celebrating the holidays with some really great people. 🙂

Mainstrasse Goettafest.

We hopped on the Southbank Shuttle across the Roebling Bridge…

To go check out the 16th Annual MainStrasse Village “Original” Goettafest

Brought to Northern Kentucky by the early German immigrants, Goetta has always been a breakfast staple in the Greater Cincinnati area. Goetta was originally a peasant dish, meant to stretch out servings of meat over several meals to conserve money by adding pin-head oats and spices to ground meat  usually pork, or pork and beef. We’ve hit up the Mainstrasse Goettafest before, and it’s a fun time. But not to be confused with the other Goettafest, Glier’s Goettafest over in Newport where I fell in love with the Goetta ‘n Chedda grilled cheese sammich…

Not Goetta…

Also not Goetta…

Getting closer…

And then, we finally found it…

Goetta ‘n Chedda! The secret is a slice of cheese on each slice of bread with the Goetta in the center…

Genifer snapped this photo of me enjoying my first bite of Goetta ‘n Chedda!
I was so happy! Goetta ‘n Chedda! HOORAY!

Genifer found some of the best beer cheese I’ve ever had in my life…

We were so full of Goetta ‘n Chedda and amazing beer cheese that we didn’t have room for a bucket of delicious little donuts, also known as a Bucket of Heaven…

Or any ice creams at Piper’s Cafe

And when we were done, we just hopped the Shuttle back downtown…

It was a great afternoon full of Goetta and beer cheese deliciousness! 🙂

We went out to get Blizzards from Dairy Queen in Northern Kentucky before tonight’s FC Cincinnati away match at Orlando City B

#GCRWeek16: Pompilio’s.

Greater Cincinnati Restaurant Week (#GCRWeek) started today. Restaurant week consists of restaurants offering specially selected 3-course dinner menus with a price point of $35 for one or two guests. We found ourselves across the river over in Newport this evening, and decided to kick-off our Restaurant Week with some amazing Italian cuisine at Pompolio’s

We sat in Colonel Pomp’s Tavern so we could watch some of the Reds game…

ps. They lost. :/

Apparently, I was sitting in the Commish’s Chair…

We wondered if Tom Selleck was going walk into the bar, stop, look at us and give us one of his classic disapproving sighs. We each started with a house salad…

The house Italian dressing was incredible. Genifer ordered the cheese tortellini. And I had the chicken parmigiano…

Really enormous portions…

Chicken parm you taste so good

Incredibly delicious stuff. The leftovers were just as delicious for lunch on Tuesday…

And finally, we shared this gigantic tiramisu for dessert…

Delicious stuff. And all for just $35! It was a great start to our Greater Cincinnati Restaurant Week! 🙂

Nashville Hot.

This afternoon we drove out to Crescent Springs, Kentucky to pay a visit to Nashville Hot. They serve up authentic Nashville-style hot chicken with a custom spice blend and southern-inspired sides. To be honest with you, I’ve never heard of Nashville-style hot chicken until that colonel started trying to shove his KFC Nashville Hot chicken down my throat. :/ Apparently, Nashville Hot opened back at the beginning of February. But I didn’t hear about them until they recently hosted a tap takeover with Braxton Brewing Company. Let’s check it out…

Genifer ordered a house salad and added two boneless chicken tenders. And I ordered the Hot Chicken Sandwich on Texas Toast with a side of baked mac ‘n cheese. Throw in a couple of Braxton Storms, and there’s our lunch…

I had mine with the Southern Heat and Genifer had the Midwest Medium heat. The Southern Heat definitely lived up to its name, but next time I’m going all in on the Nashville Hot. There really wasn’t a good way to eat this sammich. But it was such delicious stuff!

We can’t wait to come back to eat more amazing chicken at Nashville Hot. 🙂
