And a cherry on top.

On our way home from work tonight, we stopped at Northside Distilling Company for a happy hour drink…

I’m in love with their White Russian called The Dude. It’s one of my favorite drinks in all of Cincinnati. And it was an Old Fashioned for Genifer. She love’s a good Old Fashioned…

I finally got a few decent photos of one of the cherries for our drink being carmelized…

Northside Distilling Company makes some pretty outstanding cocktails.

Dream big & Fly high.

I ran out to get something for lunch. (I got a caesar salad fromย MidiCiย at Race and Sixth Streets. It was really good.) On my way back to the office, I noticed this new-to-me mural for the very first time…

I don’t if it’s really a true mural though. It kind of looked like it was painted on board or some sort of substrate and then mounted to the building’s facade. Nonetheless, it’s pretty neat. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ–Œ๏ธ๐ŸŽจ๐Ÿทโค๏ธ

And it was a rainy morning.

Yesterday’s rainy evening carried over into this morning. It looked really threatening when we were taking the dogs out on their morning walk before work…

On our way downtown, it didn’t look any better…

And by the time I got upstairs to work, it was raining again…

But the good news is, I made myself this breakfast sammich croissant at work…

It was delicious. And later, there was strawberry birthday cheesecake at work…

So it’s all good.ย ๐Ÿ˜€โ˜๏ธ๐ŸŒง๏ธ๐Ÿฅโค๏ธ

It’s not Thursday.

Almost every Thursday on our way home from work, we stop at Queen City Radio for a beer and one of their amazing Whip Classic burgers. This week we couldn’t wait and decided to stop at QCR on a rainy Wednesday…

I’ve also been really liking their cheese coney lately. I think their Whip Classic is one of the absolute best burgers in all of Cincinnati.ย  ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ”๐ŸŸ๐ŸŒญโค๏ธ

Beautiful day, rainy evening.

It had been pretty sunny all day until it was just about time to go home. Then it got all grey and overcast and started to rain…

Bleh. ๐Ÿ˜€โ˜๏ธโ˜”๏ธโค๏ธ

#CincyStreetBots ๐Ÿค–

When I was walking around downtown Cincinnati today, I stumbled across another one of those little (what I’m calling)ย #CincyStreetBots

But it was so long ago and I’m sooo far behind on our blog that I can’t remember where exactly in downtown Cincinnati that I saw this one. And that’s a bummer. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿค–โค๏ธ

Sam Adams Taproom + Mexi-Q.

On our way home tonight, we stopped at the Sam Adams taproomย for happy hour…

And we noticed that the Mexi-Q Mexican BBQ food truck was out on Sam Adams patio tonight. We’ve never tried anything from Mexi-Q food truck before. Mexican meets BBQ? I had a feeling that this was going to be awesome…

Genifer ordered a Veggie Burrito Bowl…

And I ordered the Spicy Mexican Mac…

It was really good! You can’t beat delicious food stuffs from a food truck that you’ve never had the chance to try before. Especially when it’s Mexican and BBQ, two of my very favorite food groups. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿบ๐ŸŒฏโค๏ธ

Northside snails.

We saw a couple more snails on our dog walk this morning…

I wonder where all these snails come from and where are they heading to? ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒโค๏ธ

Sunday afternoon at Taft’s Brewpourium.

We went around the corner toย Taft’s Brewpourium for lunch this afternoon. We had one of Taft’s delicious Bloody Mary’s…

And some delicious New Haven style pizza with Taft’s incredible BBQ wings…

We really love the Brewpourium. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ”โค๏ธ

Saturday afternoon in OtR.

We got up this morning, walked the dogs and then hopped on our Metro 17 bus to head down into Over-the-Rhine. Today was the first spring edition of The City Fleaย in OtR’s beautifulย Washington Park

Thornwoods! I used to work with Ben at Deskey. He and his wife started this pop-up and their stuff is really awesome!

I also love all the creatures fromย Happy Groundhog Studios…

I also used to work with James Billiter at LPK, who does some terrific stuff as well…

It was another great edition of The City Flea. Afterward, we headed over to get a drink from one of Genifer’s favorite OtR spots, Sundry and Vice.ย 

And today, S&V had homemade empanadas…

DANG! I love empanadas so much!

Genifer loves Sundry and Vice’s draft Old Fashioned…

Next, we walked up Vine Street and were drawn in by this sign in front ofย panino

We’ll have to stop back at panino for sammiches. I’ve heard nothing but good things.

It seems like there is always something “coming soon” in OtR…

And then we walked over to Mecca

And we had one of their Chunkers…

And some popcorn…

And then we hopped in an Uber and headed back home. It was a really fun afternoon wandering around Over-the-Rhine. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ›๏ธ๐Ÿฅƒ๐Ÿฟโค๏ธ
