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.

Chocolate mint stout and empanadas.

After work this evening, I hopped the Cincinnati Metro 11 bus…

I rode the eleven up to East Walnut Hills…

I met her just around the corner from her work at Woodburn Brewery. Because we saw that Woodburn had their Chocolate Mint Imperial Stout back on tap. It’s the beer that tastes just like a Girl Scouts Thin Mint cookie…

There were also empanadas from Che. I really love empanadas…

We got the trio of empanadas. We tried the beef, Cuban and pepperoni empanadas…

All of them were very good but the traditional beef empanada is always my favorite.

I was a fun Friday evening with great empanadas and a pretty outstanding beer. We’ll have to do this again soon. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿบโค๏ธ

It’s a sign.

It’s a sign for Bay Horse Cafe on Main Street. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŽโค๏ธ

It’s Skyline time.

It was Skyline time for lunch today! YUM! ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿง€๐ŸŒญโค๏ธ

Good morning from Northside.

Bonsai Project.

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.

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

Three years ago.

We’ve loved every minute of it. And we’re still going strong! Bring on MLS!ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฆ•โšฝ๏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…
