Northside Saturday.

It was another beautiful Saturday in Northside…

We had lunch again at Boswell’s Alley…

I can’t get enough of their delicious Super Grill. We saw these guys in a shop window…

It looks like Fat City Billiards has delayed their opening…

Every time we walk by, it seems like they’ve had a new sign up and the opening is always pushed back a couple more months. We moved on to Second Place for some bourbon slushes and the second half of both the Arsenal versus Watford match and Michigan versus Indiana…

Michigan held on to beat Indiana in overtime. And Arsenal lost. We walked home to get ready for FC Cincinnati’s final match of the regular season to come on TV…

FC|C won their final match of the season 4-3! They finished the season in sixth place, and that means they’ll play away to Tampa Bay Rowdies in the first round of the USL playoffs next Saturday. We love hanging out in our neighborhood. 😀⬆️⚽️🏈❤️

Sunday Funday.

This afternoon we dodged the raindrops and walked down to Higher Gravity to watch FC Cincinnati’s second to last match of the regular season away to Ottawa Fury and that other “professional” football team from Cincinnati was playing too…

Genifer’s mom, Geri has been staying with us while she closes on her new house…

FC Cincinnati lost to Ottawa 4-0. Now they sit precariously in the final playoff spot with one match remaining. After the soccer match, we went home to watch our Dallas Cowboys take on the Green Bay Packers. And we got some delicious NYPD Pizza for the late afternoon game…

Isn’t it amazing how all pizza is so similar yet so completely different at the same time?Oh. And the Cowboys lost on the final drive of the game, 35-31. It was another really fun day in Northside if you get past all the losing. 😀🍺🍕🤠🏈😕❤️

Northside Wednesday.

After work this evening, we walked through the Northside Farmer’s Market

We stopped at Urban Artifact to try their latest creation called Love Letter Peach Midwest Tart, have another taste of their Anaglyph Banana Midwest Fruit Tart and try their new Spicy Chariot Tart Cherry Gose

Then we stopped a taco at Django Western Taco because it was National Taco Day

And then we headed home…

It was a pretty good Wednesday in Northside! 😀👨‍🌾🍺🌮❤️

Northside Saturday.

At the end of our street, all these cones were having a cone party…

We walked through an open house of a new home for sale around the corner from us…

It was nice. But it was waaaay out of our budget. We like our house just fine, thank you very much. We kept walking over to Boswell’s Alley for lunch…

We shared some Bos Bites…

And we shared a Super Grill…

YUM! The fire trucks were pulling out just after we passed by…

We stopped for a beer at Urban Artifact

We had an Anaglyph Midwest Fruit Tart made with real bananas and a Tricorne Tart Pawpaw New England IPA that they collaborated to make with Sam Adams…

And we got to hang out with our new friends, Tayler and Chris…

It was another fun Saturday in Northside. 😀🍺🍻❤️

PROST!

Shannon sent us this awesome reversible Oktoberfest coozie in the mail…

PROST! Thanks, ShannonHappy Oktoberfest! 😀🍺🍻❤️

Northside Saturday.

This afternoon we went back over to the new Taft’s Brewporium for lunch…

Garlic knots, 10″ pepperoni pizza, loaded tots and some shuffleboard…

More of the Brewporium was opened up this time, their space is huge…

Later, we met some new friends at Higher Gravity and caught the second half of the Michigan game. And then we walked down to Second Place for FC Cincinnati away match to St. Louis. Michigan finally pulled away from Purdue, and the FC|C match ended in a 2-2 draw. It was another really fun Saturday in Northside. 😀⬆️❤️

Oktoberfest Zinzinnati 2017.

After the Reds game, we walked through Oktoberfest Zinzinnati 2017

Samuel Adams and Urban Artifact collaborated on a beer for Oktoberfest…

And it was outstanding…

The Klaberheads were getting ready to perform as we were walking through…

We’ve been to every Oktoberfest since we began dating back in 2011. 😀🥨🇩🇪❤️

TGIF.

I met Genifer at Hoffner Park after work…

We had dinner at Melt

We stopped at Higher Gravity for a couple of tasters…

And then we headed home…

It was a really long week. 😀❤️

Taft’s Brewporium.

When we lived downtown, we used to love going to Taft’s Ale House down in OtR, even though we didn’t get there as often as we would like. When we moved to Northside, we noticed that Taft’s had a huge warehouse at the corner of Spring Grove and Mitchell Avenues. We hoped that they had a taproom but no such luck. The warehouse space was just a canning and distribution center. Fast forward a year or so and come to find out that Taft’s is indeed finally opening a tap room in the warehouse. And today was the soft opening of the new Taft’s Brewporium just down the street in Spring Grove Village….

It’s a huge space…

Complete with shuffleboard…

All our Taft’s favorites were on tap…

Taft’s Brewporium also serves food, mainly New Haven-style pizzas. From what I’ve read, New Haven-style pizza is a cross between old-world Neapolitan and New York-style pizza. It uses coal-fired ovens to create a thin, crispy, lightly charred crust. Hey, pizza is pizza. Let’s give it a try…

We couldn’t resist starting with some loaded tots as well…

And we got a 10″ pepperoni pizza. It was delicious!

And with that, we were stuffed. The official Grand Opening for Taft’s Brewporium is next Saturday. It sounds like a pretty fun event

Great beers. Great pizzas and tots. Great place. We’ll definitely be back very soon!

Taft’s Brewporium is a terrific addition to the neighborhood! 😀🍺🍕❤️

HIgher Gravity: Meet the Brewery.

After work, I met Genfier at Hoffner Park…

So we could go to Higher Gravity...

They were having a 50 West tap takeover this evening…

And 50 West brewers were on hand to answer any questions…

It was pretty great to get to try some different 50 West beers right in our backyard. We really like Higher Gravity a lot. It’s one of our favorite spots in Northside. 😀🍺🍻❤️
