Topgolf West Chester.

Early this afternoon, we drove out to the suburbs to check out Topgolf West Chester

I haven’t swung a golf club in a really long time…

So this should be interesting…

Topgolf is pretty amazing and has a full-service bar and restaurant…

We shared a hitting bay with Cleve and Alyssa…

They have a whole bunch of different games you can play. We just played their signature Topgolf game where you score points by hitting your golf ball into any target assigned using Topgolf’s microchip technology…

The more accurate your shot and the farther the distance, the more points you earn…

It was really fun. During a game, each person got to hit 20 balls. While we were playing, we also ate lunch. We had some cheese curds…

Genifer had this turkey wrap…

And I had this short rib grilled cheeses…

Our lunch was delicious. And Topgolf is so much funIt’s a little on the pricey side but still a whole bunch of fun. We’ll definitely be back very soon for more Topgolf. 😀⛳️❤️

Little monsters live here.

We saw this guy today at Home Goods…

Also, it’s August 29th and Halloween stuff is out in stores. 😀👹🎃❤️

Coffee Please.

After our Saturday morning run to Trader Joe’s, we stopped for coffee in Madeira at a place called Coffee Please

Google described it as a “homey cafe & bakery serving specialty drinks, muffins & light meals in a relaxed atmosphere.” And that seems pretty accurate…

We both each had an iced latte. And they were really good. I really liked their big coffee bean roaster too. It reminded me of Sidewinder’s Roastery

I just love getting to try new coffee shops on Saturday mornings. 😀☕️❤️

A Chicken Tender BLT?!

After a couple of beers at Grainworks Brewing Company, we stopped for some lunch at Rusty Bucket in Liberty Center… 

We’ve been to the Rusty Bucket at Rookwood Commons in Hyde Park. But we’ve never been to this one before. In fact, I didn’t realize that there were multiple Rusty Buckets…

Usually, my go-to at Rusty Bucket is their patty melt. But I couldn’t find it on the menu. So I tried this chicken tender BLT instead and it was outstanding…

I think I’ve actually had this sammich before but this time, it was just amazing. The breading on the chicken was like a beer battering. It was just incredible. I think I have a new favorite sammich. 😀🐔🥓🥬🍅🥪❤️

Grainworks Brewing Company.

This afternoon we drove all the way out to the suburbs of West Chester to check out Grainworks Brewing Company. It’s kind of tucked away in a little industrial park right by Voice of America Park

Genifer had Grainworks My Blue Heaven blueberry fruited beer and I had the Black & Blue, which is their oatmeal stout mixed with the My Blue Heaven…

Both beers were really good…

There is so much really good beer in Cincinnati. And Grainworks is no exception. It’s another awesome Cincinnati brewery. 🙁⚙️🍺❤️

UPDATE: When I was looking for Grainworks beers in Untappd, I noticed that they have a Peanut Butter Milk Stout on tap. So we might need to make another trip out to West Chester very soon.

Fretboard Brewing Company.

This afternoon we drove out to Blue Ash to check out Fretboard Brewing Company

It’s a pretty cool space. It’s a lot bigger than I thought it would be…

They had a lot of interesting sounding beers on tap…

But we were drawn out to Fretboard to try their Chase the Devil Double Imperial Stout with Habanero, coffee, and chocolate…

And it was pretty dang awesome. It had just the right amount of heat. Also, inside of Fretboard is Smoked Out Cincy BBQ

We ordered a whole bunch of BBQ…

And it was really awesome too. My favorite thing was the Cajun Chicken Rolls. We also shared Fretboard’s Mimosa Fruit Beer

And their Island Style Tropical Ale

And those beers were really good too!

Fretboard is yet another really great Cincinnati brewery. We’ll definitely have to make another trip out to Blue Ash really soon. 😀🍺❤️

Apricot Coffee House.

After making a run to Trader Joe’s this morning, we got to stop at another new coffee shop. This morning’s pick was the new Apricot Coffee House in Pleasant Ridge…

Genifer had a latte. You could see the flower pattern through the lid…

And they had donuts from Starlight Doughnut Lab

I had the Choc Norris cold brew, cacao and banana smoothie with a mint chocolate donut from Starlight Doughnuts Lab

Apricot Coffee House is a great little coffee shop. We’ll definitely be back! 😀☕️🍩❤️

Summer Gods Tour.

This evening we went to see Third Eye Blind play at Riverbend’s PNC Pavilion…

It was an incredible show! Third Eye Blind is just amazing live. I posted a few more videos of their performance to my Instagram. What a show! What a night! 😀🎸🎶❤️

And on the way to our car, we got a beautiful view of tonight’s full moon…

😀🌕❤️

CHAMPIONS!

The USWNT are World Cup champions once again!

😀⚽️🏆🏆🏆🏆❤️

Mad Llama Coffee.

We made an early Saturday morning run to Trader Joe’s. And that means we get to check out another new coffee shopAnd the coffee shop we checked out this morning was Mad Llama in Madisonville…

Neat little coffee shop. We loved all the llamas and the coffees were great! 😀☕️❤️
