Northside Saturday.

Early this afternoon, we walked down to Blue Jay for lunch…

We both had grilled cheeses and fries. My grilled cheeses had so much turkey on it…

After lunch, we walked over to Urban Artifact

UA was hosting the Holiday Ohio Explored Ohio Maker Mart. We didn’t know there were going to be food trucks at Urban Artifact this afternoon. I don’t know that we would have skipped Blue Jay though. Those grilled cheeses really hit the spot…

There was even more stuff downstairs in UA’s taproom…

It was really fun to wander around and look at all the crafts. If you were looking for a new hand-knit winter hat, this was the place for you. Genifer got two new winter hats. And I got a really shiny ring with beautiful inlays. After the Maker Mart, we walked down to Second Place for a drink. They replaced all their beer tap handles with the tops of trophies. I wonder how long they’ve been like that and I never noticed…

It was another really fun Saturday in Northside. We love our neighborhood. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ›๏ธโค๏ธ

Pause for paws.

This evening Higher Gravity hosted an event that featured beers from both Shorts Brewing Companyย up in Michigan and Cincinnati’s Mad Tree Brewing Company. They eachย brewed a beer that was intended to be layered one on top of the other to create flavors imitating a gin and tonic…

It really didn’t taste much like a gin and tonic. But when the two beers were layered, they created a very delicious beer. After we finished our layered beer, we had a flight of the two Shorts beers and the two Madtree beers…

There’s always something interesting going on a Higher Gravity. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿปโค๏ธ

Good morning from Northside. The snow is gone but it’s still really cold. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„โ„๏ธโค๏ธ

Pause for paws.

Mack loves to hang out under our dining room table. He’s always just chilling under the table when we’re in our dining room…

He’s pretty silly. And this adorable photo of Oscar popped up in my Timehop…

It’s what’s for dinner.

Genifer made another one of the Home Chef Express meal kits for dinner tonight. This one was Steak Fajitas with cheese and sour cream…

Look at all those delicious veggies…

These were some really great steak fajitas. They could have come with some more cheese but then again you can never have enough cheese. Cheese makes everything better. And there’s no such thing as too much cheese. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒฎโค๏ธ

Good morning from Northside.

This event has been blacked out.

I went to watch local basketball tonight’s showdown between the Norse of Northern Kentucky and those Bearcats from Cincinnati. I don’t think Cincinnati usually plays NKU. But at least this season, Cincinnati has played nothing but cupcakes. The only ranked team they’ve played so far was Ohio State and the Bearcats lost by 12. Anyway. I wanted to see how the Norse would do against Cincinnati. I tuned into ESPN3 to watch the game only to find the game blacked out. I don’t know why they have to do stuff that like that…

On Fox Sports Ohio was the Cleveland Cavaliers game, but I ended up being able to find the game through the Fox Sports GO app and then stream it to our TV through our Google Chromecast. Ugh. But by the time I finally figured all that out, Cincinnati was well in control of the game…

The Norse would fall to Cincinnati 78-65. I used to be pretty neutral about Cincinnati Bearcats basketball. I didn’t really care one way or another. But their coach just rubs me the wrong way. There is a smugness or arrogance about him that just really rubs me the wrong way.

After the holidays, I’d like to try to find tickets to go see the Norse play at home. That would be pretty fun. We’ve never been to a NKU Norse basketball game. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ€โ˜ ๏ธโค๏ธ
