Good evening from Northside.

The sunset was amazing this evening as the 17 bus crossed over 75 and Mill Creek coming over the bridge into Northside…

Good evening from Northside. 😀🌇❤️

Higher Gravity: Meet the Brewery.

After dinner at Bistro Grace, we stopped by Higher Gravity for another edition of Meet the Brewery. This week’s brewery was BrewDog USA from over by Columbus by way of Scotland. There were also cheese pairings for each beer supplied by Morsel & Nosh, a new cheese shop/delicatessen coming soon to Northside. Per Morsel & Nosh…

We have chosen a classic Muenster to pair with BrewDog’s 5am Saint Red Ale; the subtle flavor of this mild cheese goes well with the caramel notes of the red ale.

We’ve chosen a Northern France Triple Cream Brie to go with the Jet Black Heart Milk Stout; the rich cream goes well with the cacao and coffee notes of the stout.

The pairing we were the most surprised was the combination of a spicy Wildfire Blue cheese with the Elvis Juice IPA. When tasted alone the Elvis Juice has a forward hoppy/floral note and with the Wildfire Blue cheese the citrus notes really pop.

We’ve never been to a beer and cheese pairing before. It was interesting to taste the beer, taste the cheese and then the beer with the cheese and taste how the flavors of the cheeses accentuated the flavors of the beers. And we found it all very interesting and very tasty. 😀🍺🍻🧀❤️

Dinner at Bistro Grace.

Last Christmas, my sister gave us a gift certificate to Bistro Grace in Northside…

Tonight, I met Genifer at Hoffner Park so we could finally have dinner at Bistro Grace…

We never noticed the lovely detailing on Bistro Grace’s ceiling…

We started with some deviled eggs with mushrooms…

Genifer ordered the Grilled Caesar Salad…

I ordered their Thursday Shrimp Special

Everything was delicious! I had the shrimp special last time we were at Bistro Grace, and it was amazing. This shrimp special was different but every bit as good. We finished our meal with a trio of creme brulee…

Tremendous meal. And we still have enough left to come back next week to share some beer cheese with pretzels, some more deviled eggs and another one of Bistro Grace’s amazing burgers. 😀🥗🍤❤️

Thank you the gift certificate, Shannon! It was delicious!

It’s Skyline time!

It was Skyline time for Lunch today! YUM! 😀🌭🍝❤️

Good morning from Northside.

It looks like it’s going to be a grey and overcast morning. 😀☁️❤️

Five years ago tonight…

We saw the best musical we’ve ever seen, Jersey Boys

Best. Show. Ever. It’s hard to believe it hasn’t returned to Cincinnati in five years. 😀🎙️❤️

Tickle Pickle’s Wing Wednesday.

Last week, we checked out Tickle Pickle’s Taco Tuesday. Tonight, we checked out Tickle Pickle’s Wing Wednesday

The wings came six to an order with your choice of BBQ, Buffalo or Mango Habanero…

We got an order of the BBQ wings and an order of the Mango Habanero wings…

The BBQ wings were really good. They were really big wings too…

And Mango Habanero were really spicy but delicious as well…

Who knew that Tickle Pickle was more than just really delicious burgers? Now, we have a bunch of different delicious reasons to stop into Tickle Pickle. 😀🐔❤️

Goodnight moon.

The Super Moon was a few nights ago but tonight’s moon was also pretty super…

😀🌖🌝❤️

Taco Tuesday.

Today was another Taco Tuesday at Silverglades on Eighth

I love their Taco Tuesdays. 😀🌮❤️

Pop-Up Ramen at NSYC.

We saw on Instagram that every Monday in December Northside Yacht Club was going to serving scratch-made ramen noodles by Chef Hideki Harada, former owner and chef of Kaze in OtR! Hideki and his wife Yuko are opening Kiki, a Japanese restaurant in College Hill in late spring until then they’ll be serving their Pop-Up Ramen at NSYC! It sounded really interesting so we thought we’d go check it out…

I didn’t take a photo of it, but NYSC was packed tonight. Thankfully after waiting for a little bit, we were finally able to belly up to the bar for big bowls of ramen…

Genifer ordered the mushroom ramen…

And I ordered “Tonkotsu” pork ramen with extra eggs…

The ramen was delicious! And the eggs soaking up the broth were outstanding. They were my favorite part. As we were finishing our bowls, NYSC ran out of ramen. They started serving ramen around 4pm and by 7:30pm, they had gone through all 150 servings of noodles. I have next Monday off so hopefully we can sneak into Yacht Club early and get some more delicious, delicious ramen. And we can’t wait to check out Kiki just up the street from us in College Hill when it opens late this spring. 😀🍜❤️

And check out Kiki College Hill’s Kickstarter holiday drive to help get them started!
