Seen and noted.

Last summer, we saw a rather surprising number of snails around Northside. This morning Genifer pointed out my first Northside sidewalk snail sighting of the spring…

Taken with Instagram. 😀🐌❤️

Two years ago.

Two years ago, Genifer snagged us our only MLB Reds foul ball at GABP…

Good job, baby! And thanks, Timehop!🤪⚾️🦕❤️

Sam Adams Taproom.

It was gorgeous this evening. We wanted to go sit out on a patio and have a beer.  So on the way home, we stopped at Sam Adams Taproom on Central Parkway…

We shared one of Sam Adams delicious giant pretzels…

Big Dogg’s BBQ was parked out on Sam Adams patio…

We also shared one of Big Dogg’s Pulled Pork Parfaits…

Awesome. What an incredible way to enjoy this beautiful evening. 😀🍺🥨❤️

Constructing Cincinnati.

Across the street, they were laying the concrete foundation on the first floor today…

It was a pretty neat process to watch take shape. 😀🚧❤️

Taco Tuesday!

It was Taco Tuesday today for lunch from Silverglades Deli on Eighth

I’m really going to miss Silverglades. It’s been one of my go-to lunch spots for a long time. I don’t know how often I’m going to get back over here. 😀🌮❤️

Happy Foursquare Day!

It’s 4.16! Happy Foursquare Day! 😀⭐️❤️

Celebration!

After work, we stopped by Queen City Radio to celebrate my new job offer…

Celebrating a new job tastes a lot like Whip burgers…

I’ll be accepting the offer tomorrow morning. Thank you to my beautiful wife for helping me think this through. After talking about it, it turned out to be one of the least difficult decisions I’ve had to make. I’m very excited about this opportunity. 😀👍🍺🍔🍟❤️

Today was Genifer’s birthday!

Today was my beautiful wife’s birthday. Genifer’s mom sent these fun balloons and very pretty flowers. When we opened the door to take the dogs on a walk, the flowers were sitting on our porch. We opened the door and the balloons scared poor Mack half to death. He jumped a foot straight up in the air…

Thank you to my parents for their lovely card. And thank you to everyone for all the happy birthday wishes. This afternoon we went out in OtR to celebrate…

We started at Queen City Radio…

We stopped by Cobblestone…

And Longfellows…

We walked up to The Pony…

And then we walked over to the new Holiday Spirits…

It was a really fun evening. Happy birthday, Genifer. I love you so much! 😀🎂🎊🍺❤️

Northside nubs.

This evening we stopped to check out a new place with our friends Terry and Katherine called Northside Country Club. Not to be confused with Northside Yacht Club, Northside Country Club is in the old Bistro Grace space on Hamilton Avenue. Apparently, it’s some sort of stop-gap to keep the liquor license with the building…

NSCC is cash-only. But there is an ATM on site. Ohmigosh… THEIR TOTS. Their tots are just amazing. The ranch dipping sauce for the tots is really good. And the aioli is even better. We also had their ham&cheese, thinking it would be a grilled cheese with ham. It was cold ham and a slice of cheese on toast. It was good but just not what we were expecting. We also ordered the BLT which was really good. Our friend Terry had the Chicago dog and that looked really good too. Next time we go to NSCC, we’ll be ordering BLTs and tots for days. And I’ll remember to take photos. But still, really great stuff…

Then we walked down to Higher Gravity. The sunset was pretty amazing…

At Higher Gravity, they were celebrating our friend Jen‘s 5000th unique beer check-in on Untappd. That is a lot of unique beers. Between me and Genifer, we have just over 300 combined. And 300 is nowhere near 5000. Not even in the same zip code…

Congratulations, Jen! That is quite the achievement. It was another really fun evening in Northside. 😀🍺❤️

Today was the next step.

Today was the next step in a whole new adventure for me…

This morning I had an hour and forty-five-minute meeting with three different people. And it went great. Terrific conversation. It sounds like a really amazing opportunity. And it’s all very exciting. Fingers crossed. 😀📖❤️
