No Oktoberfest?

For the very first time ever, Genifer and I didn’t go to Oktoberfest Zinzinnati…

We kind of felt an obligation to go to Oktoberfest because we’ve gone for at least a little bit ofΒ every Oktoberfest since we began dating back in 2011. But this year, it was rainy so we just stayed at home. And it was wonderful. PROST!Β πŸ˜€πŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺ🍺❀️

A rainy evening.

It was a rainy evening in Northside. But check out those clouds…

They looked like they were just painted in the sky.Β πŸ˜€β˜οΈβ€οΈ

Home Goods in Rookwood.

This morning we went over to Home Goods at Rookwood Commons. I always find it interesting to wander around inside of Home Goods. They have all sorts of things you never know you needed for your home. I almost got this canvas for our office…

A Halloween mummy mug or a fox wearing glasses mug with legs…

These giraffes were odd but adorable…

As were these pot steam vents…

And the monster on this bag of popcorn…

Who wouldn’t want this huge three-pound bag of gummi bears…

After wandering around Home Goods, we walked to Rusty Bucket again for lunch. Genifer had a burger…

And I had their patty melt…

I love patty melts.Β πŸ˜€πŸ›οΈπŸ”β€οΈ

Goodnight moon.

Das boot night.

Tonight just happened to be Das Boot night at Higher Gravity with hefeweizen from Weihenstephan, the world’s oldest brewery…

It was a pretty good hefe. And we got to take home our boots! We also got to try the new Braxton & Graeters Pumpkin Pie collaboration…Β 

It was really good. Very pumpkiny. But it’s still just a little bit too early for me to be drinking pumpkin beers. As soon as it starts to feel more like fall outside, it’s on. I also saw this beer from Streetside that sounded interesting but we didn’t try it…

Maybe next time. However, we did bring this guy home this guy…

it was another fun Thursday night at Higher Gravity in Northside.Β πŸ˜€πŸΊπŸ‘’πŸŽƒπŸŒžβ€οΈ

Downtown details.

I ran some errands around downtown this afternoon…

They’re turning the site of the old Dennison Hotel into a super cute little park…

I’m going to have to go back to check it out when they are actually finished with it. But it was more than I expected from this space. I thought it was just going to be more surface parking lot. I was going to ride the streetcar Cincinnati Connector or one of those silly little scooters down to The Banks. But it was so nice outside and I can actually walk again without pain, so I just walked down to Great American Ball Park…

I was getting us some Reds tickets for the final week of their season…

From GABP, I walked down Freedom Way and noted Joella’s Hot Chicken. I’m going to have to come back down to The Banks to check that out for lunch one day…

I continued on to stop to admire the new 150-foot tall SkyStar observation wheel at The Banks. It’s only a temporary addition to downtown. It’s there to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of The Banks. We’ll have to make sure to ride it before December 2nd…

They were getting The Banks ready for Oktoberfest Zinzinnati…

And then I rode the streetcar back to work. Somebody’s gotta ride it now and then…

And then it was back to work…

It’s fun to take a little bit of time out of your day to run around downtown Cincinnati to see the sites especially the new additions.Β πŸ˜€πŸ™οΈβ€οΈ

It’s a sign.

It’s unfortunate that I think we have an FC|C match on that day. Maybe we’ll be able to check out this next year.Β πŸ˜€πŸ‘β€οΈ

Good evening from Northside.

Our cheese pizza kick.

We’ve been on a real cheese pizza kick lately going back to National Cheese Pizza Day. Thankfully, our beloved NYPD in Northside has some of the best cheese pizza around. And their boneless wings aren’t too shabby either…

We love NYPD Pizza.Β πŸ˜€πŸ•β€οΈ

It’s what’s for dinner.

Genifer made delicious Chili Mac for dinner tonight…

Chili Mac is cheesy, beefy deliciousness. And we got to have garlic bread with it. And I love garlic bread.Β πŸ˜€πŸœβ€οΈ
